AFTERLIFE: When our physical body dies like the extinction of a candle, does our soul live on? (Stephanie Lam/The Epoch Times)
Leonardo Vintini - Exploring the Frontiers of Science

In a strict sense, the human body dies once every decade. Every cell reproduces, disappears, and is replaced with a specific frequency, depending on what type of cell it is (muscular, connective tissue, organ, nerve, and so on). However, as the cells that originally occupied our face, bones, or blood have been gone for hours, days, or years, our ever-renewing body, meanwhile, maintains a seat of consciousness.

So where does the consciousness reside? Is it immune to the cycle of life and death that our physical body experiences? What is life? And what determines death?

The answers to these types of questions are often found somewhere on the border between science and philosophy—yet the ability to determine when life begins, ends, and where it resides is an issue of unquestionable relevance for a scientific community intent on discovering the existence of living organisms in future space explorations. Insight into these matters might also better determine the exact point of death in hopes of bringing to fruition more advanced reanimation methods with biological organisms.

The Immortal Atom

According to modern biology, learning—consisting of a variety of environmental stimulations and the establishment of dendrite ramification throughout one’s whole life—develop in what is known as “neuron information storage.”

This kind of storage is fast, but it is not as efficient as genetic information. A genetic information package is instantly delivered generation after generation without the need for tedious verbal learning.

To put it another way, the blueprints of our bodies exist in our children by way of our genes. Hair color, body shape, plasmatic protein, or a particular constitution is preserved in packages of genetic information that carry throughout multiple generations.

Does this refer to a kind of immortality? Not at all. In the combination of gametes that precede fecundation, a large percentage of genes is lost in the process of zygote formation. Traits are carried on, but individuality passes with death.

Nevertheless, some scientists affirm that mind and body take separate pathways after the cycle of life is finalized. According to doctors Rene Severijnen and Ger Bongaerts—researchers at the University of Radboud Nijmegen’s medical center in the Netherlands—life exists at different levels. They note that while cells die relatively quickly, atoms are virtually immortal.

According to Bongaerts, the death of an atom signifies matter converting into energy—the same thing that happens upon detonation of a nuclear bomb. This is to say, that while a body is decomposing in the morgue (decay at the cellular level), the atomic nuclei are not degrading. Otherwise, we could say that upon death every body has the potential danger of a nuclear bomb.

Atomic activity does not end with death, so what happens to these atoms when a person dies?

If we examine the beliefs of ancient Oriental cultures, it was said that humans possess multiple bodies that exist at various layers. Given this understanding, we can see that while the body in the morgue decomposes, the cellular layer is disintegrating (the physical body). Meanwhile, the relatively miniscule atoms within these cells, existing in a dimension impervious to such decay, retain their original composition.

So these “bodies” made of particles smaller than cells that do not experience the decomposition we observe in the morgue, might well be the soul, mind, or post-human consciousness that we can intuit but which science remains unable to identify.

Their presence indicates that even after the death of a body, perhaps life hasn’t ended. As Dr. Severijnen observes, the ceasing in growth and metabolic activity at the time of the body’s death is only one side of the coin.

Tiny Life

According to some scientists, atoms remember—every emotion, every sensation, every extremely tiny experience. Although the idea of memory-bearing atoms might sound far-fetched, the discovery of intelligence at microscopic levels has opened the door to new debates regarding the origin of life.

For many years, science believed that cells lacked any individuality; they were thought to have acted along with the group like threads in a fabric. However, recent research by Professor Brian Ford, biologist and president of the Cambridge Society for the Application of Research, suggests otherwise.

His work reveals that individual cells are instead complete entities with intelligence that communicate and share information. In his view, the individual cell is a complete organism actually capable of decision-making.

Consider, then, if a cell's stored capabilities never before described by scientists were to, as some scientists suggest, also carry over into the fine atomic structures. It may well offer a key to human immortality and the apparent illusion reflected in the state of death.

How to Digitally Record/Video a UFO sighting:

Como registar digitalmente ou gravar um vídeo de um avistamento de um UFO:

Stabilize the camera on a tripod. If there is no tripod, then set it on top of a stable, flat surface. If that is not possible lean against a wall to stabilize your body and prevent the camera from filming in a shaky, unsteady manner.

Estabilize a camera com um tripé. Se não tiver um tripé, então coloque-a em cima de uma superfície estável. Se não for possível, então encoste-se a uma parede para estabilizar o corpo e evitar que a camera registe de maneira tremida e instável.

Provide visual reference points for comparison. This includes the horizon, treetops, lampposts, houses, and geographical landmarks (i.e., Horsetooth Reservoir, Mt. Adams, etc.) Provide this in the video whenever is appropriate and doesn’t detract from what your focus is, the UFO.

Forneça pontos visuais de referência para comparação. Isso inclui o horizonte, cimo das árvores, postes de iluminação, pontos de referência geográficos (como o Reservatório de Horsetooth, Mone Adams, etc) Forneça esses pontos no vídeo sempre que for apropriado e não se distraia do que é o seu foco, o UFO/a Nave.

Narrate your videotape. Provide details of the date, time, location, and direction (N,S,E,W) you are looking in. Provide your observations on the weather, including approximate temperature, windspeed, any visible cloud cover or noticeable weather anomalies or events. Narrate on the shape, size, color, movements, approximate altitude of the UFO, etc and what it appears to be doing. Also include any unusual physical, psychological or emotional sensations you might have. Narrate any visual reference points on camera so they correlate with what the viewer will see, and thereby will be better able to understand.

Faça a narração do vídeo. Forneça pormenores sobre a data, hora, local e direcção (Norte, Sul, Este, Oeste) que está a observar. Faça observações sobre as condições atmosféricas, incluindo a temperatura aproximada, velocidade do vento, quantidade de nuvens, anomalias ou acontecimentos meteorológicos evidentes. Descreva a forma, o tamanho, a cor, os movimentos, a altitude aproximada onde se encontra o UFO/nave, etc e o que aparenta estar a fazer. Inclua também quaisquer aspectos pouco habituais de sensações físicas, psicológicas ou emocionais que possa ter. Faça a narração de todos os pontos de referência visual que o espectador irá ver e que, deste modo, será capaz de compreender melhor.

Be persistent and consistent. Return to the scene to videotape and record at this same location. If you have been successful once, the UFO sightings may be occurring in this region regularly, perhaps for specific reasons unknown, and you may be successful again. You may also wish to return to the same location at a different time of day (daylight hours) for better orientation and reference. Film just a minute or two under “normal” circumstances for comparison. Write down what you remember immediately after. As soon as you are done recording the experience/event, immediately write down your impressions, memories, thoughts, emotions, etc. so it is on the record in writing. If there were other witnesses, have them independently record their own impressions, thoughts, etc. Include in this exercise any drawings, sketches, or diagrams. Make sure you date and sign your documentation.

Seja persistente e não contraditório. Volte ao local da cena e registe o mesmo local. Se foi bem sucedido uma vez, pode ser que nessa região ocorram avistamentos de UFOs/naves com regularidade, talvez por razões específicas desconhecidas, e talvez possa ser novamente bem sucedido. Pode também desejar voltar ao mesmo lugar a horas diferentes do dia (durante as horas de luz)para ter uma orientação e referência melhor. Filme apenas um ,inuto ou dois em circunstâncias “normais” para ter um termo de comparação. Escreva tudo o que viu imediatamente após o acontecimento. Logo após ter feito o registo da experiência/acontecimento, escreva imediatamente as impressões, memórias, pensamentos, emoções, etc para que fiquem registadas por escrito. Se houver outras testemunhas, peça-lhes para registar independentemente as suas próprias impressões, pensamentos, etc. Inclua quaisquer desenhos, esbolos, diagramas. Certifique-se que data e assina o seu documento/testemunho.

Always be prepared. Have a digital camera or better yet a video camera with you, charged and ready to go, at all times. Make sure you know how to use your camera (and your cell phone video/photo camera) quickly and properly. These events can occur suddenly, unexpectedly, and often quite randomly, so you will need to be prepared.

Esteja sempre preparado, Tenha sempre uma camera digital, melhor ainda, uma camera vídeo consigo, carregada e pronta a usar sempre que necessário. Certifique-se que sabe como lidar com a sua camera (ou com o seu celular/camera fotográfica) rápida e adequadamente. Esses acontecimentos podem acontecer súbita e inesperadamente e, por vezes, acidentalmente, por isso, necessita estar preparado.

Look up. Be prepared. Report. Share.

Olhe para cima, Esteja preparado, Relate, Partilhe.
