Did anyone see the Science channel feature on the human soul?

    They attempted to explain the soul and near death experiences on the quantum level. They said that through quantum mechanics, subatomic particles can interact and transmit data with local particles and particles at a distant; and that after death, the subatomic particles composing our soul simply reconnect with the universe as a whole on the quantum level. Not sure if I explained it perfectly, but questions about the soul, the origin of the universe, etc have always fascinated me.

    There was another show that explained what was outside of our universe. They explained it almost as two gigantic walls moving like waves of water, and whenever those walls collided it created a whole new universe similar to ours. Not sure how they figured it out, but it's nice to know they are making progress.

    The subatomic particles associated with "spooky action at a distance" (which Einstein called quantum entanglement) do not reconnect...at least they haven't been shown through tests or mathematics to reconnect, that I'm aware of.

    However, I didn't see that feature. Science channel doesn't have a YouTube channel, and I don't watch TV. I have, however, watched hundreds of BBC and other documentaries on this stuff.

    Nice who doesn't like a man with deep thoughts?? I will def check it out-thanks.

    You don't require anything as dangerous as so-called near death experiences, which, frankly, are nothing but chance glimpses for the amateur; rather, you can put forth actual effort and experience it all in a systematic way on your own through your own dreaming should you decide to attempt to become conscious within your sleep.

    Meanwhile, you might find fun some more of these types of explorations into the idea of consciousness, or soul, or however you care to define it, as being physical.

    This is all nonsence cooked up by the human brain, with is the most powerful evolutionary occurance on our planet, and which is most likely occuring all over the universe wherever the same primordial circumstances exist.

    The theory you're talking about in the second paragraph is "Membrane (Brane) Theory." It is just that--a theory. It states that the two parallel sheets (membranes) collide after billions of years of gravitational pull. As they collide, a new "big bang" occurs and restarts the universe from scratch. There are theories that this causes parallel universes to be created.

    Another theory of the origin of the universe states that the universe expands at a rate that gradually increases. After billions of years, this effect slows down and ultimately reverses itself, causing all matter to re-condense in the tiny particle that started the big bang. At that point, it would explode again and start over.

    The third theory I heard was that the universe is connected through matter, dark matter, and dark energy. Dark energy acts on matter and dark matter alike, and pushes everything apart (think of it--for you physics nerds out there--as overwhelming entropy). As far as the theory goes, dark energy is causing the expansion of the universe to accelerate. Eventually, dark energy will be so overpowering that it will literally rip matter apart, effectively ending the universe.

    None of these theories has any more backing than another, though. It is fun to speculate.
