Life After Death…/ La Vie Après La Mort…

Is there anything after our physical death? Some people believe there is, that’s called faith. Some people believe there is not, that’s called realism.

I do believe in life after death. I’ve got no proof; I’ve never had experiences with people from ‘the other side.’ But it seems to me there have been enough people with incredible near-death experiences to make it a reasonable possibility.

And now, an interesting article, someone posted on facebook, raises a scientific explanation for why life after death is a serious possibility. I can imagine the realists rolling their eyes and saying, “Yeah, right. They found some quack who calls himself a scientist who told them what they want to hear.”

The ‘quack’ behind this research was rated as the 3rd most important scientist alive by the New York Times. He is Dr. Robert Lanza and after his extensive research on stem cell biology, he has taken time to delve into quantum physics and astrophysics. Quantum physics is the most creative field of scientific research today. Those studying it are ready to go ‘outside the box’ and consider what, at first glance, might seem unscientific.

Based on what he learned, Dr Lanza has developed the theory of Biocentrism. Here’s a quote from the article that explains Biocentrism: “Lanza points to the structure of the universe itself, and that the laws, forces, and constants of the universe appear to be fine-tuned for life, implying intelligence existed prior to matter. He also claims that space and time are not objects or things, but rather tools of our animal understanding. Lanza says that we carry space and time around with us “like turtles with shells.” Meaning that when the shell comes off (space and time), we still exist.”

So Dr. Lanza rejects the materialistic view that the body creates consciousness. He sees consciousness as the creative force behind the universe and compares our body to a cable box that receives satellite signals. When the body dies the signals are still there. In other words, consciousness remains after the body dies.

Here’s the link to the article:

On the subject of quantum physics and what it could mean in how we see the world, I highly recommend the movie, “What the Bleep Do We Know.” It’s a unique movie with a plot line that includes actors and some animation but also includes interviews with scientists, scholars and mystics and what they all have to say is quite complementary.

Here’s a four-minute trailer about the film:

OK, take a deep breath and challenge your belief system if this seems a bit too much for you…

  1. We are fortunate to live in a time now when “life after death” is more widely understood and books about this topic are becoming bestsellers. That shows that there is a genuine interest in this matter.
    “Proof of Heaven” by Dr. Eben Alexander and “Dying to be me” by Anita Moorjani are two examples of such books. Both, by the way, have been translated into French.
    In May, this year, a movie is coming out in the US, “Heaven is real” I can’t wait to see it!
    I never had an NDE but I had an out-of-body experience similar to the one portrayed in the movie “Contact” when Jodie Foster’s character is going through the wormhole and gets to meet her Dad. My experience was less dramatic, i did not “see” the lights and colors as in the movie but felt sucked through the wormhole as if a cosmic vacuum cleaner had picked me up and brought me to another dimension. When I was there I met a dear friend who had passed away 20 years earlier. No words were exchanged, just smiles and wonderful energy. After a few moments, I knew it was time to come back and so it happened. it made a believer out of me.
    Great topic, thanks for writing about it!
