What happens to our soul after death always remains a mystery. In various religions, we are taught various explanations yet, most of the times individuals are put in a dilemma about their after journey.
According to scientists, human brain is a ‘biological computer’ and the consciousness of humans is a program run by quantum computer located inside the brain. They say this quantum computer continue to exist even after our death. They explain that as, “after people die, their soul comes back to the universe, and it does not die.”
Since 1996, Dr. Stuart Hameroff, an American physicist and Emeritus in the department of Anaesthesiology and Psychology, and Sir Roger Penrose, a mathematical Physicist at Oxford University, have worked in a quantum theory of consciousness in which they state that the soul is maintained in micro-tubules of the brain cells.
What does this theory states is that the soul is contained by the brain cells in structures inside them called micro-tubules. These scientists argue that what we believe as ‘consciousness’ is in fact the result of quantum gravity effects located within those micro-tubules.
They name this process as ‘Orchestrated Objective Reduction – (Orch-OR)’.
The theory explains that when people enter ‘clinical death’ period, the microtubules located in the brain lose their quantum state but the information within will remain. Simply, we can explain this as the soul does not die but returns to the universe.
Dr. Hameroff explains to the Science Channel’s through the Wormhole documentary that,
“Let’s say the heart stops beating, the blood stops flowing; the micro-tubules lose their quantum state. The quantum information within the micro-tubules is not destroyed, it can’t be destroyed, and it just distributes and dissipates to the universe at large. If the patient is resuscitated, revived, this quantum information can go back into the micro-tubules and the patient says ‘I had a near-death experience.’ If they are not revived, and the patient dies, it’s possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul.”
So, according to the theory we can understand that human souls are more than just ‘interactions’ of neurons in our brain.
