Scientifically Speaking, Quantum Physically speaking, how could an after life exist?

Your brain controls your consciousness/mind and once that is gone, you won't be conscious.

Your heart controls the pumping of the chemicals which bears emotions, once your heart is gone there is no more emotion.

When you die, your body goes into the ground and it becomes food for worms and the ground.

With this being said, how can there be an after life?

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 infinitivly.

Wow you really nailed it. Thousands of years of speculation and philosophical debate and you come along and cut through all the bull. Thanks for the insight.

Best not to get caught in the quantum debate.

at the quantum level, all things are non material 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, 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 us.

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.

firstly you must estabilsh what is life and how the whole precives it
after that everything is a piece of cake

You already have an existing thread with the exact same topic

Three theories.

One is that the last instance of thought your mind has could be stretched out into an eternity.

Second, with so much we don't understand and are learning more about I.E. anti matter, other dimensions.

And then, of course:

Dunno If I really believe. I'd like to though, the idea of not existing anymore is a bummer.

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.

Ima bettin' we can make'em an afterlife with thems computors.
