Human beings are the only intelligent life on the earth, and the earth is a life-rich world with millions of species of life. In so many biological worlds, human beings are not very powerful, but why can we become the overlord of the earth and stand at the top of the food chain? In fact, many people know the reason, that is, human beings have a strong intellectual power.
The reason why we are intelligent life and advanced life is that we have advanced wisdom. Human beings rely on wisdom to dominate the earth, rely on wisdom to develop rapidly, and entered the era of science and technology hundreds of years ago. When human beings entered the age of science and technology, they began to use the power of science and technology to understand the world, explore the world, and constantly uncover the mystery of everything in this world.
Among the many mysterious things, there is one mysterious thing that has always puzzled scientists, and that is the question of whether the soul exists. When talking about souls, many people think of ghosts in ancient legends. That’s right, the souls we call now are actually similar to the ghosts that have been circulating in ancient times.
I believe many people know that in the long years of human civilization, many myths and legends have been born. In these myths and legends, there are high gods and shameless ghosts. For these legendary souls, in the past we have always looked at them in a superstitious way, thinking that souls could not exist, and that they were just made up by the ancients.
But when human beings enter the age of science and technology, with the rapid development of science, we have more knowledge of the world and the nature of everything. Especially in the microscopic world, the continuous in-depth study of quantum mechanics has begun to make us have to rethink about the soul. I believe that when many friends learn some scientific knowledge on the Internet, when they see discussions about souls, few scientists have completely denied them.
This shows that scientists’ attitudes towards the soul are also changing. Perhaps many scientists have discovered some unusual secrets about the soul through some research and exploration. We can no longer treat the soul with superstitious eyes, so does the soul really exist? Modern science cannot give a definite answer.
Why did the ancients have the legend of the soul? In fact, this is a hope of the ancients for eternal life. Believe that we all understand that there is a law of life and death in life, no matter it is simple microorganisms or advanced life, human beings cannot escape the fate of death. The difference is that life without wisdom is very calm about death, while human beings with intelligent life are different. I believe that everyone expects to live longer, and many people have a dream of eternal life.
The ancients’ dream of immortality was much stronger than that of modern people, but the human body could not live forever, so the ancients put forward the idea of immortality of the soul. In the legends about the soul, we all know that reincarnation means that the soul returns to the world again and then lives for the rest of the life. The ancients constructed a nihilistic concept of immortality. At the same time, because of its emptiness, it is impossible to recognize with the naked eye, but it conforms to the desire of human beings to live forever, so it has been circulated.
So how does modern science view the soul? Although from a scientific perspective, we cannot completely deny the existence of the soul, but the definition of the soul by scientists is very different from that of the ancients. Scientists believe that the soul may be inextricably similar to the quantum mechanics of the scientific world.
We all know that quantum mechanics is the greatest science in modern times, and it is the science of studying and exploring the microscopic field. And we also know that all matter and things in this world are essentially composed of various particles, including the human body, which is also composed of various microscopic particles. There are electrons in the human body. When a person is getting old and approaching death, the electrons in the body will leave the human body and be dispersed into the universe.
If the soul is a polymer of electrons, then it is normal for us to be unable to see nature. This is very similar to the legendary soul. The electron is essentially a kind of energy, so the soul may also be a kind of energy aggregate. After a person dies, the electrons leave the human body. It is possible that within a period of time, these electrons will still gather together. By chance, some people can see it unintentionally.
Therefore, sometimes we will hear that some people have seen ghosts, and the so-called soul is scattered, it may be that the electrons that make up the soul have completely disappeared. The claim that the soul is composed of electrons is still a guess, and scientists have no better way to study and explore the mysteries of the soul.
It’s just that with the continuous advancement of technology, if the soul is really a collection of particles, then we may be able to see this aggregation through instruments after death by relying on the power of technology. If you see it through an instrument, perhaps no one will doubt the existence of the soul. Of course, even if the soul is a collection of particles, it may be very different from the particles we generally recognize.
Although modern science cannot confirm the existence of the soul, the existence of consciousness is beyond doubt. Scientists have been researching and exploring the mysteries of human consciousness, and some have even suggested that consciousness may be the soul. A person is conscious while alive, and when the consciousness is gone, it means that the person has lost his life. The existence of consciousness also allows scientists to have a renewed understanding of the mysteries of the human body.
Some scientists have speculated that the human body may be composed of two parts, one part is the organs and tissues of the body that we can see, and the other part is consciousness. The brain is the carrier of consciousness, and a person with consciousness can be called an intelligent life. When a person dies and the body dies, does the consciousness also die along with it? Scientists have no answer to this question.
A scientist once did a consciousness restoration experiment with a dead pig brain. Although the consciousness of the pig brain was not restored, there was indeed a trace of recovery in the consciousness of the pig brain during the experiment. Through an experiment, scientists guessed that consciousness might not die with the human body. If consciousness is the soul in the legend, then the theory of the immortality of the soul may not be unreasonable.
As a result, scientists put forward a hypothesis: Can we achieve immortality by preserving consciousness? To put it simply, we download and save a person’s consciousness. Even if the body dies, the consciousness can be reloaded into a new carrier to achieve rebirth. Some people may think, how can such a thing be realized? Scientists will explore and study this?
In fact, the experiment to explore the download and preservation of consciousness has already begun, and many famous scientists from all over the world have participated in it. It can be seen that, in the exploration of immortality, modern people are more crazy than the ancients. And we are different from the ancients, the ancients can only dream of immortality, to imagine the legend of the immortality of the soul.
With the support of science and technology, we can look at the problems of soul and consciousness from a more essential and scientific perspective. As long as the power of science and technology is strong enough, downloading to save consciousness, it seems that it is not impossible to make consciousness perpetual. Since many famous scientists are studying this, it shows that from a theoretical point of view, consciousness is likely to be preserved, and alternative immortality in the future is also possible.
