It is interesting to learn about the functions of the human body that are still performed even after several hours or even days after clinical death.
10. The growth of hair and nails
Despite the fact that the body does not generate tissue for growth of hair and nails after death, they continue to elongate. In fact, this is easily explained by the fact that the skin loses moisture and shrinks while exposing the hair. Nails also appear longer. Due to the fact that the length of a nail is usually measured from the tip to the point of contact with the skin, when the skin shrinks, nails seem to be longer.
9. Brain activity (with the use of medication)
Modern technologies have erased the line between life and death, sometimes the brain may be dead, but the heart will continue to pump blood. After a cardiac arrest, doctors pronounce the patient dead only after Continue reading
Two world-renowned scientists of quantum physics claim to be able to prove the existence of the soul.
The scientists propose an incredible theory that states that near-death experiences happen when quantum substances that constitute the soul leave the nervous system and are introduced into the universe in general.
This concept is based on the perception of the brain as a biological computer with 100 billion neurons and synaptic connections, which act as information networks and can remain in the universe even after death, the fact that can explain the perceptions of those who almost experienced death.
British physicist Sir Roger Penrose and American anesthesiologist Dr Stuart Hameroff developed this quantum theory of consciousness claiming that human souls are located in the structures called microtubules that ‘live’ inside the brain cells.
During a near-death experience, microtubules lose their quantum state, but the information they keep is Continue reading
Resuscitation specialist Sam Parnia continues to darken already murky waters of thanatology, by offering his colleagues to carefully examine stories of people returned from the dead. In his view, which will be fully supported by any competent philosopher, these stories shed light on the nature of human consciousness.
“Consciousness does not disappear at death. There is no such discrete point in time. Death is a process,” he claims.
In the middle of the XX century, with the discovery of methods of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the study of death has entered a new phase. Initially capable of resuscitating a person within few minutes after clinical death, now people who “died” more than half an hour ago Continue reading
The book “The Lost Symbol” by Dan Brown contains a chapter on some amazing experiments. According to the author, our soul is a material substance which can exist outside the body and can have weight. Therefore, it can be weighed. One of the characters in the book, Katherine Solomon, was able to weigh human soul. She placed a dying man (he had donated his body for scientific purposes) in an air-tight capsule, fitted with very sensitive micro weight detectors. While the man was alive, the scales showed a figure of 51, 4,534,644 kilograms. And after the old man’s death, the micro scales showed a decrease in the body weight. Brown does not specify this difference as a number, but makes a general comment: “This difference, though microscopic, is quite measurable.” This experiment allowed Brown to stipulate that the human soul does exist.
Dr. Duncan MacDougall from Haverhill (Massachusetts, USA), was the first scientist to conduct this kind of experiment in 1906, as reported by the New York Times on March 7, 1907. McDougall “detected” the change in the body weight when the person had died. The measurements were performed on a special bed, which was also a gigantic scale with high precision, and have shown that the “soul” Continue reading
The answer to this question seems to be given by scientists of the Medical Research Council of Cambridge and the department of psychology at the University of Edinburgh. Continue reading
Michael Talbot is an Australian writer, whose books originally were only science fiction, combining quantum physics and spirituality. However, it appears that many scientists today share his theory and do not consider it science fiction. This new theory of reality says that the physical universe is nothing more than a hologram, ie an illusion, a projection of a certain initial level of the world. Continue reading
Despite the enormous strides in science in the last decades, it still cannot give an explanation of what happens to us after we die. At the same time, many studies on near-death experiences show that these fleeting, almost supernatural experiences are reported by hundreds of thousands of people who have been on the shores of death. This combination of progress and lack of results has led to the emergence of a variety of theories in recent years. Below there are the most common of them. Continue reading
The age-old question of humanity: is there life after death seems to be answered. And the answer is yes. Scientists seem to have found the proof to the theory that every human has a soul, which remains alive even after the heart stops.
One of the authors of the study anesthesiologist Stuart Hameroff disclosed details of the discovery in a TV show in one of the science channels. Continue reading
What is astral projection: some kind of rare magic skill or something that anyone can learn? Is it an illusion of the mind or a real experience? What are its risks and benefits?
Astral projection is a phenomenon that concerns many people interested in unexplored human powers and psychic abilities. In the last few years, there has been a growing interest expressed in books, articles, seminars and groups practicing astral projection techniques.
To put things in order and sort out the scenery, I present you the answers to 12 most frequently asked questions about astral projection: Continue reading
