Does death exist?


Many of us fear death. We believe in death because we have been told we will die. We associate ourselves with the body, and we know that bodies die. But a new scientific theory suggests that death is not the terminal event we think.

One well-known aspect of quantum physics is that certain observations cannot be predicted absolutely. Instead, there is a range of possible observations each with a different probability. One mainstream explanation, the “many-worlds” interpretation, states that each of these possible observations corresponds to a different universe (the ‘multiverse’). A new scientific theory – called biocentrism– refines these ideas.

    I can’t quite wrap my head around it… I get that energy doesn’t die, but it does transform, yes? so we could go from “nert” to inert (hahahaha joke here).
    I don’t know….

      Yes energy can be transformed, at least from what I remember in my physics class.
      But I want to die, if I must live forever, let me live in people’s memories, I don’t think this is asking for too much

        It would not matter if one had no recollection of existing in alternate universe. It would not be like Groundhog Day but a new beginning

          if it is a new beginning am in but not a continuation of life we had here in that case I want annihilation. In the movie Green mile, the old man narrating the story talks about how it is sad waiting for your death seeing everyone you have cared for die and leave you alone. I don’t want to live forever!

  3. I’ll probably die the day before the first human brain is uploaded onto a hard drive.

    I’m OK with not knowing. I’ll take what comes, I don’t need the carrot of an afterlife. In one way shape or form we do live forever.

    Hi Makagutu, first, thanks for visiting my blog. It is quite different from yours, but I’m a person with many interests and happen to enjoy/agree with what you write. I have nominated you for the sunshine award (wordpress rules I have to let you know) here: http://lahacienda.wordpress.com/2013/04/03/sunshine-award/

    Many people believe that a believe in the afterlife is incompatible with atheism, however philosopher David Staume has written a book: The Atheist Afterlife
