Human civilization has gone through more than 6000 years of ups and downs, and after continuous efforts and development, it has finally come to today’s technological era. The 6,000-plus years seem to be very long, but in fact, it is a very short time relative to the 4 billion-year history of the earth.
In this relatively short period of time, the period during which humanity really ushered in rapid development is actually not long, only about a few hundred years, that is, from the industrial age to the present. Entering the industrial age also means that mankind has truly started scientific research and exploration, and science and technology has become an important direction of human exploration efforts.
With the help of science, the standard of living of human beings is getting higher and higher, and the quality of life has also undergone earth-shaking changes. More importantly, through science, we have a new understanding of the world and the mystery of life and ourselves. Also had a preliminary understanding.
As an intelligent life, mankind itself hides many secrets, one of which is shared by all life, and that is lifespan. No matter what kind of life, simple life or complex and advanced life, they will face a problem in the near future from the day they are born: that is death.
Death is one of the many iron laws of the universe. No creature can get rid of this fate, but for creatures without wisdom, they can accept this fate without any fear of death. But it is different for human beings with rich emotions. We are intelligent life. Although we know that death is a kind of fate, we still have some despair and fear for it.
Many emperors in ancient times were unwilling to accept this fate, and they were able to study immortality through various methods, but I believe everyone knows the final outcome. We fear death because we don’t want to lose our lover and those who love ourselves and leave us, and we don’t want to lose all kinds of fame and profit in reality. Death is like a lamp extinguished and everything will disappear.
In order to make human beings less desperate and fearful of death, driven by people’s complex emotions, an important concept has emerged, and that is the “soul” that we all know. I believe that many people are not unfamiliar with the concept of soul. Whether it is in the Western world or the Eastern world, there has been a saying about the soul from ancient times to the present, but in the Eastern world, we often call the soul a ghost.
The emergence of the concept of soul gives people a kind of spiritual sustenance, because in legends, the soul is immortal, and the death of human beings is just a physical death. The soul can still exist in this world, and even go to another more advanced one. world. The soul dispelled people’s despair and fear of death, dispelled the coldness of death, and brought a touch of comfort to the dying.
So does the soul really exist? In ancient times, many people believed in the existence of the soul, so there were some professions that depended on the soul. However, with the continuous development of human civilization and entering the industrial age, most people do not believe in the existence of the soul, thinking that it is a kind of theology, a kind of superstition, and the soul does not exist at all.
Does the soul really not exist? Scientists are also very curious about this. In the eyes of most ordinary people, the soul is an illusory and impossible thing, but some scientists have a different understanding of this. When many people question the existence of the soul, some scientists But began the research and exploration of the soul.
Some scientists have measured the weight of the human soul to be 8 grams through a large number of death experiments, and some scientists have studied the secrets of the soul through “near death experience”. “Near-death experience” is a state of half-life and half-death. The probability of this state occurring in the folks is still very high, and it is not particularly unusual. According to incomplete statistics from relevant foreign institutions, approximately 20% of cardiac arrest patients have had similar experiences.
So what kind of miracle will happen in the “near death experience”? After investigating some patients with cardiac arrest, scientists found that many people said that they had seen an indescribable light in a haunting state, and some people said that they had seen pictures of themselves being rescued and were able to listen. What the rescue doctor said at that time.
We don’t have to doubt what these people say that have experienced a near-death state, because scientists are not investigating a single case, but at least tens of thousands of people who have experienced it. In other words, many people who have experienced a near-death state have seen a similar scene, so what is this strange scene? Is it really the soul that is influencing?
Hawking once said: The information of all people in the universe will not disappear out of thin air, but will only transform from one form to another. The soul exists in the brain. If it exists, it should be essentially a kind of information, including It is about human character, emotion and memory.
If Hawking’s statement is correct, then the soul may be a special kind of information that really exists in the material world, and in quantum mechanics, the human body is just a sustenance of the soul, and the stopping of body functions does not mean that Consciousness will disappear.
There is no doubt about the existence of consciousness. This is something that scientists have confirmed through a large number of experiments, and consciousness is also a magical thing that is invisible and intangible. In quantum mechanics, consciousness is also a kind of information element that actually exists. The description of consciousness is very similar to the soul. Therefore, we usually call the soul consciousness. They may be a kind of thing in essence.
Quantum mechanics believes that the body is just the sustenance of consciousness, so how did this mysterious consciousness come about? In this regard, some scientists have proposed a conjecture that consciousness, like gravity, does not really exist in the current time and space, but a special projection of a certain form of the high-dimensional world.
How do we understand it? In fact, it is not complicated. We all know that the world in which humans live is a three-dimensional space. If we want to enter a two-dimensional space, can the body enter? Of course not, because there is no concept of height in two-dimensional space. If we want to move from three-dimensional to two-dimensional, we can only project our consciousness onto two-dimensional things.
In the same way, if a certain existence in a high-dimensional space wants to enter our three-dimensional world, it can only be entered by the projection of consciousness. Seeing this, many friends may be confused: Since the so-called soul is a projection of the high-dimensional world, why do they have to come so hard to come to the low-dimensional world? Do we have any treasures here?
In fact, from the perspective of quantum mechanics, consciousness is an existence that cannot be ignored, and it can truly affect the activities of many things. And according to the “M Theory” proposed by Edward Witten, if consciousness can affect matter to some extent, then consciousness must be higher than the eleventh dimension.
If so, there may not be a true “end” in life, and each end is the beginning of a new journey. If consciousness is a projection of the high-dimensional world, what is its origin? Is it a coming of high-dimensional world creatures? Of course not. Scientists believe that it should be an over-taxation of all material rules, a law that maintains the basic operation of the universe.
In other words, consciousness may be a kind of the supreme law of the universe, focusing on maintaining the operation and development of life. Seeing this, perhaps many people no longer despair and fear death. Even so, we must respect life. Consciousness may not really disappear, but everyone’s death is also a real end. Everything before your lifetime will become history. Facing life with a positive and healthy attitude, respecting life is the most correct choice.
