I think that if the physical nature of afterlife existence could be succinctly determined and fully described in the sense of it being another phase
of human existence, and not as either the end of it or a completely unassociated transformation into an unrelated form of existence, then there are
some people who work as scientists that would feel the urge to examine it. As it is now, the afterlife is predominantly defined as "belonging" to
the larger question of the existence of God or All or Great Spirit or Flying Spaghetti Monster. Our modern Western culture can't seem to separate the
possible survival of the human mind from the existence or nonexistence of any number of supernatural entities, each more omnipotently wondrous and/or
horrific than the other, and this prevents our culture from taking any such research seriously.
There is and has been a lot of research into this subject
from many different points of perspective
, but none of it is considered scientific by our culture's
reality definers. This is due primarily to the nature of the "modern" scientific method, which
(having been invented many hundreds of years
ago, as a form of applying brute fact observation onto inquiries)
may not be the only way of determining the true nature of Reality as a whole.
Certainly, with the advent of so much technology that separates the observer from what's being observed by so many degrees of digitally affected
indication translation, it must be considered that observation can only provide a percentage of what the scientist requires to form an accurate
In fact, in the scientific study of micro systems and quantum mechanics, 100% of observation is based on fairly broad assumptions that are,
themselves, based on equally tenuous assumptions, with some assumptions resting upon a literal stack of unproven assertions that are inherently
unprovable. The Copenhagen Interpretation was nothing more than an official statement that declared the complete ignorance of all in attendance as it
relates to the system physics of quantum interactions. Yet, from that statement, modern science ventured boldly forth to declare Reality to be
stranger than fiction
and open to every imaginable possibility.
I guess it all depends on how the majority of professionals in a culture's research community view a particular endeavor. At this moment, the study
of human afterlife is considered by these geniuses to be fantasy, while imaginary strings and loops and imperceptible dimensions and multiveres
aren't. I guess that it's these guys who have the authority to declare what is real and not real, regardless of the evidence of lack thereof.
