People do not like to think about death, this is why most cemeteries are built on the outskirts of town. However, the truth of the matter is, in one year 56 million people die. It is not only that we all pass away, the young, the old and children as well. There are certain facts about death that we must come to understand. Death is a part of life, nothing lasts forever, either human beings, or the entire universe will fade away only to be regenerated at another time. Things come into existence and things go out of existence. Why is it that people fear death? I've come to understand, the simple reason for this. We are all disconnected from one another, but one thing all of the human race have in common, is we all feel alone and separate. Whereas, the truth of the matter is there is nothing in the entire universe that is not connected. This means, each individual is connected to the other, and all others are connected to the universe.
I have written a number of blogs on my website voicing my opinion of how science has progressed and coming to understand the nature of life itself. Needless to say only a few answers have been found, and so the mystery remains. Science has a name for this joining of all matter, namely the unified consciousness. It is my firm belief after much study and research that everything is indeed connected. Consciousness itself still remains a mystery to the scientific world. Scientists are still deliberating as to where consciousness comes from. Many scientists still argue that it is part of the brain function while others will argue consciousness is universal and we are all part of this universal consciousness. It is this consciousness that survives the physical death.
There are a number of great scientists who study the workings of the human mind and functions of the brain that have concluded there are microtubules located in the brain that all but receivers of consciousness. The brain is somewhat like a radio, when you are listening to a specific channel on the radio that wavelength exists, and yet there are numerous other wavelengths that are playing at the same time, which we cannot hear, simply because we have not tuned to that channel. By selecting another station, you find another wavelength. You could tear the radio apart bit by bit and never find the announcer. He is simply not there; the radio was nothing but a receiver and transmitter, of wavelengths.
At this point I would ask a profound question, what is life? The answer to this question has yet to be found. Science has progressed tremendously over the years, and now show with the study into quantum physics what we once thought to be true about mathematics has changed dramatically. It would seem this study of quantum physics has shattered the laws of physics the way we know it. Many scientists cannot explain with any certainty the way quantum physics works. Some would even argue the point that quantum physics shows a direct relationship to the mind. Some scientists state the world that we see about us is but an illusion. True or not true, I have no way of knowing. However, if this is true, what we think about death could in fact be totally wrong.
Death itself is not painful. It is only this sicknesses by which people die from which bring pain. In the scientific world today doctors and scientists alike in all fields of study are looking into the phenomena known as near-death experience. This experience is not new and has even been recorded in such ancient writings such as the Bible. Of course, like everything else in the world, there is always the Yin and Yang of things. Some will tell you these experiences of near-death are only a reaction of a dying brain. Whereas, others will tell you the same experiences occur even when the brain is long dead.
The truth of these experiments has yet to be determined scientifically and proven. As for me, with each day of further new study and deep investigation into these matters I tend to believe more and more consciousness survives death. Science will admit we live in a three dimensional world, and counting time would give us a total of a four dimensional world. However, the latest findings are that there is a great possibility that there are in fact are 11 dimensions or more. Therefore, it is possible to say that upon the death of the physical body we merely move into another one of these dimensions.
As science progresses in this research with each new answer that is found, comes another question. No definitive answers have yet to be found. If you search the Internet, you will find numerous conclusions as to what these theories mean to a life after this life. Some may call me a dreamer, and based my conclusions on unproven hypotheses. It seems to me, there is much more to life and death than meets the eye. As our eyes look out into the world, what exactly are we seeing? Science will tell you it is nothing more than a projection from the brain formulating a world that we think is there. Based upon what we have been taught since birth.
I am not a scientist, nor physicist, I am also not as smart as many of these learned men of the world but somehow I feel we all have what is called a soul. I think it's only a matter of time before the truth is revealed to the world. We are all one, sharing the universe together, we are in fact part and parcel of that infinite being known as God. When you say the word God, people tend to picture a man in the sky with a long white beard who controls everything. To me, God represents natural forces of the universe which is highly intelligent and is more likely a membrane or brain that spans the universe. This concept is drawn from a study known as the M theory.
For the reasons mentioned above, I do not fear death, for I firmly believe there is no such thing as death. Death is only a passageway from one dimension of being to another dimension of existence. Do we reincarnate into a new life form? Or do we simply merge back from whence we came? I wish I could give you the answers to these questions, but due to my limited understanding I am not able to do so.
In conclusion, my advice to all those reading this article is to make the effort to study with an open mind. Knowledge is the key to finding answers, or drawing rational conclusions. As for me, each day of study contemplation and meditation brings me closer to my own conclusions. No man's truth can be your truth. You must question and re-question, examine and re-examine only then can you make a decision that will satisfy your curiosity about these matters. I do not believe we are simply born and die and nothing else in between. Nothing appears from nothing, nothing disappears into nothingness, everything is connected and I firmly believe we are part of this ongoing process of creation.
Finally, it is you who must make the final decisions as to what life is and your purpose in living it. To me, we are here for one reason, namely, to discover the truth about whom we are and where we came from and where we are going. This is the greatest undertaking you will ever make, for once you find the truth and have a firm belief in your heart that you have found the answers you seek, death will lose its grip over you forever.
