Well you don't know how consciousnes is being contained. You can't prove that when your brain dies, your consciousnes is erased. And in quantum
physics everything, everywhere is connected and will always be connected, forever and ever, meaning that in one way or another you will live
at the quantum level, all things are non material wavelengths...it is the interaction with photons that changes composition from wave into matter.
all things not being directly observed arguably do not even exist..and instead is just a wavelength of intent moreso than a solid matter..and the
solid matter reacts completely different when observed.
aka, the dream only seems real when we go to see if a particular aspect is real..then that particular aspect suddenly forms up.
the brain is away from direct photons, and the heart, etc...so theoretically, a unobserved brain (aka, no scans going on that interfere with the
photons) is little more than wavelengths verses matter anyhow.
so anotherwards...quantum physics, instead of clearing things up once and for all...actually make things really bloody confusing...
Perhaps there is something after..and perhaps QP will one day explain the science behind that.
The constraint you impose is that everything is explained or should be explained by Quantum Physics when in fact quantum physics has not and can not
explain everything already observable in the known universe.
You have set the terms of reference that everything must be explained by a bunch of rules and limitations acceptable to you, but sez who?
Without magnetic fields our brains and cells couldn't function.
For there to be an afterlife there would have to be a magnetic field to traverse somewhere's with our 'soul' per se.
But that's not how it works.
We are projected here from somewhere's else. When our physical body dies the link to our other worldly soul is dis-established.
Hence why "Ghosts" after death are our projections in areas where we were and they are linked to magnetic fields where we used to be. Burn down that
house being haunted and there would be no energy in the material to provide a magnetic field/energy for the projection from off-world to be made by
Within 20 years we will be able to see where our projections are made from. Where ever it is somebody will try to destroy it or control it. Maybe
someone is already working on it. The Devil has lots of tools at his disposal now to get to where he was banished from.

Your brain controls your consciousness/mind and once that is gone, you won't be conscious.
You sound so sure of yourself. Actually, all we know is that there is a correspondence between the physical (brain) and the mental (experience).
Damage the brain and you alter the consciousness, etc. But to say that one causes the other is making unfounded assumptions. Nobody knows
what the link is between mind and body.
One thing it's helpful to keep in mind is that experience is primary. In fact the existence of the entire physical world with its matter and energy
and laws, is a big inductive inference derived from experience.
So no, you haven't really solved anything. This is one mystery whose answer we may never know but at the very least won't know until we die.
An afterlife would require the transfer of your consciousness (and possibly memory) to some other thing that would be able to store it for an
indefinite period of time. Most people assume that the brain and nervous system handle this function while we're alive, and when we die it might
possibly be done by some kind of coherent field, presumably electromagnetic.
The small loopholes in this unlikely scenario are that consciousness and memory might not be exclusive limited to the brain during life. They may be
a manifestation of something else we can't directly measure. And if that's the case, then a stable EM field might not be necessary, but rather some
other kind of structure based on the stuff we can't observe. The "ifs" start to pile up, though.
On the other hand, since time itself is non-linear, we might be completely wrong in talking about an "afterlife" at all, since we exist and live in
a holographic reality, and there is no "after" for us. All is now.
