Today at my Philosophy class we were discussing the argument's
for and against god's existence and this idea struck me while i was
thinking about the "soul".
The religious imagery many have and the non-religious but faithful who
believe in the soul, think of a humanoid ethereal substance. And I tried to
experiment this idea with my thoughts on how death actually is, I related
this to my lucid dream experiences in which I have died in my dream
whilst dreaming several times on record.
When experiencing death everything black-en's out, there is no sensory
input yet I think, I know that I still exist but I do not have a vessel. (These
are the periods in which I have died in a dream but not yet awake in real life).
Can it be we become just a mass? Scientist's have tried to link the soul to
electromagnetic current's produced in mass quantities by human being's but not
enough to interact with the environment. So can it be our consciousness is a mass
of electromagnetic charge created by the brain's neuron's? Just food for thought.
The idea that when we die, that we release large concentration of electromagnetic
energy came to me when I remembered the Japenese 9.1 Megaquake when
thousands of people died and many more UFO's was said to be seen within the
region. Can't the UFO's actually be what a soul is? If we think of it that way we can
say that the theory of Pantheistic approach to faith is more accurate.
Again I'm just speculating on various idea's and you do not need to partake in it if
you are strictly close minded.
What are your perspectives on the matter?
P.S: my wish is to create a friendly philosophical debate not a deeply religious one.
