I think the problem here is people like Tom and others are trying to go beyond physics to support their atheist or secular belief system. When this
occurs it means people are not comfortable in their beliefs because the honest answer is they don't know. That's because physics is incomplete and
metaphysics completes what we don't know. Metaphysics means beyond or after physics. Most physicist are comfortable with saying I don't know like
Dr. Kaku, Brian Greene or Theresa Randall. Most message board physicist are not comfortable with saying I don't know.
The zero point energy, as I said something like 18 pages back, is the minimal energy of a quantum system. It's what's left at absolute zero. It has
diddly to do with your consciousness. I know it's a trendy term.
I'm a Metaphysician and I apply reason and philosophia to physics and other fields of science beyond the physics of the day.
It might help if you understood something about physics first.
Physics is silent on how energy and information relatates to the universal quantum computer after death.
If you believe that to be true, why are you trying to invoke it to comfort your fears of death?
Metaphysics will look at science, theology and the paranormal and apply logic and reason to what these things mean as a whole instead of fractured
parts. Metaphysics will not always be correct in each aspect but you can find the truth within the whole of metaphysics.
This is the popular and not the academic use of the term "metaphysics" - it's the one you can't apply the words "logic and reason" to, as you
could the academic one.
First - Energy survives death
First - consciousness is not an energy state, but a process. The term "death" when applied to the physics term "energy" is inapplicable. Energy is
not alive and thus cannot die, life and death are terms related to biology.
Second - how does energy and information correlate with the universal quantum computer after death?
Second - is the concept of a "universal quantum computer" actually correct. Some think so but many do not, Kantor denied the existence of a matrix
or process in which the computation occurs, as he is the father of it, and has proofs, I'd say it was up for bids. Even if not, you have the
unenviable task of proving that it has beans to do with you, or you with it.
Third - Theologians have talked about life after death and you have to study scripture throughout various religions and cultures.
Thor tells me that you're wrong. The bold go to Valhalla and feast forever.
Fourth - The Paranormal supports life after death and there isn't any reasonable explanation for these things outside that they exist and are beyond
current scientific observation.
The reason they are unobservable is because they are figments of the participant's imaginations.
All of these things gives you fuller picture about the nature of reality.
Or the nature of the human psyche. Or credulity.
Lets go even further. Metaphysics will asks is dark energy and dark matter the soul and spirit that many talk about. Many talk about a non material
realm. Well dark energy is non material to our material universe yet it's a form of energy. We could have a body made up of dark energy within our
human bodies and not even know it. When you die this energy returns to the Infinite along with all of your experiences and becomes part of the
Infinite Being and continues to manifest in different potential realities.
The terms "dark matter" and "dark energy" refer to specific things. In the case of "dark energy", it's most likely a manifestation of the
vacuum energy cosmological constant. So if you think you're going to become part of a math equation, at least that's unique. Dark matter is thought
to be matter that's not hot enough to emit detectable photons - like intergalactic black holes - and thus doesn't show up on optical or radio
IMHO it's a big wild bogus unsupportable leap to pick a cool new term from physics and claim that's your soul. Then extrapolate to infinity and
claim that means it will merge with some cosmic one-ness. But that kind of crap is why metaphysics (used in the popular meaning) is a joke.
My theory instead is - dark matter is how rabbits lay eggs for Easter. It permeates the Easter Bunny, and his love and kindness shape it into the
outward manifestation of a colored boiled egg.
My final point is, metaphysics puts reason over the world of appearences.
Reason - I do not think this word means what you think it means.
And I agree with you in a way - it's easy for something totally devoid of meaning and substance to call itself complete. The null set is complete,
