For centuries man could not fathom the origins of the soul. Theories were reported, discoveries were alleged, even a priest's proclamations joined the movement - yet the truth is far within reach. Notionally, the soul is said to be an immortal energy inherited from generation to generation. It is the universal breath imprisoned within an earthly body at birth. Copious deviations from the "hidden truth" or even a possible truth, have been attached to the growing religions of the world.
A matter of such intricacy requires a level of consciousness of which the human mind does not possess. Crossing the threshold of life and death may be the only momentarily justice to the question. There are trillions of theories, some vague and some captivating, one of which caught popular recognition - biocentrism.
The debate on fact vs. faith holds some leverage on the topic of the soul. Whether following a priest or a scientist - developing your stance on the debate highlights (to a degree) your consciousness. The advancing scientific discoveries juxtapose the millennia of religious doctrine, in ways both controversial and taboo.
Biocentrism and the Biocentric Universe Theory defines the universe to be what your mind makes of it. It is the conscious reflection of an individuals perception. A radical definition of "if you can dream it, you can do it". Somehow the basis of the theory relates to many ancient teachings in Hindu dharma and Greek mythology - a prospective ridicule the universe exclaims as the synchrony of being. In Biocentrism, the consciousnesses of the body is relative to the soul.
"In this view, life and biology are central to being, reality, and the cosmos — life creates the universe rather than the other way around. Biocentrism asserts that current theories of the physical world do not work, and can never be made to work, until they fully account for life and consciousness" (Lanza, 2009).
Early 2009, Dr. Robert Lanza MD. documented the concept of interdependence and cognizance in his novel "Biocentrism: how Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe". Lanza went on to propose the notion that life does not end when the body dies. He empathized with an eternal soul to orchestrate an ideology of life transforming in countless dimensions.
Lanza is an expert in regenerative medicine and advanced cell development technologies. His extensive research in steam cells founded him structural knowledge to quantify his theories. His explosive interest in physics, quantum mechanics and astrophysics praise the theory of Biocentrism.
Biocentric opinions suggest that, life and consciousnesses are fundamental to being - it is consciousness that creates the universe, not the other way around. Time and space are noted to be tools of our primal need for comprehension and sanity, rather than the noble truth - as humans we roam around subject to time and space, but once time and space are exhausted, our souls remain.
The theory implies that the death of consciousnesses is intrusively non-existent - it only exists as a thought, because people identify themselves with their body. The age old idea that once the body perishes, so does the consciousness - is inadvertently false.
Lanza believes that multiple universes exists simultaneously - in one universe, the body is dead, and in the other, it is absorbing consciousness ... suggesting that once a dead persons' consciousness travels through past loops of his/her worlds, but this time, alive, and continues infinitely. "Our external and internal perceptions are inextricably intertwined. They are different sides of the same coin and cannot be divorced from one another" (Lanza, 2009).
However, the concept of the Multiverse argues that no physical laws exists to exhibit parallel universes. Dr. Hugh Everett has conceptualized that the universe - at any given moment - the universe divides in countless probabilities of the same instance. A constant division of worlds and "what-ifs" program an infinite display of chance.
The triggering factor of the multiplying worlds is our actions - numerous composites of secondary advances dictate the lifespan of that specific scenario in another universe. In the 1980's Andrei Linde developed the theory of multiple universes, his continuous cycle of opportunity proposed the ongoing chain of our reactions.
May 14th 2009, data received from the PLANK mission measures the cosmic infrared-wavelength background, supporting the idea that space is continuously filled with infinite circles of probabilistic universes. PLANK is said to hold information on the evolutionary existence of our universe.
There is an abundance of universes in which our souls could migrate to post-death, but the question remains - does the soul exists? where does it come from" where does it go to after we die? According to Dr. Stuart Hameroff, the consciousness resides in the micro-tubules of the brain cells, - which are the primary sites for quantum processing - upon death the brains informative capacity travels with the consciousness due to quantum gravity effects in the micro-tubules.
The consciousness of the soul lies in the energy manifested from the Big Bang. Associated with brain activity - the souls origin is said to be untraceable as it was never born and never dead. Our souls are constructed from the fabrics of the universe, our brains are just the receivers and amplifiers for the consciousness that is intrinsic to the concepts of space and time.
"Lets 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 cannot be destroyed, it just distributes and dissipates to the universe at large" (Hameroff, 2009)
The account of Biocentrism is currently being analyzed to understand phenomena behind out-of-body experiences, astrophysical projections and even reincarnation. The energy of your consciousness is recycled both into many states of the body, outside the physical body, and even within another realm of the universe.
After devoting attention to the theory of Biocentrism, the validity may shift unto many understandings and perceptions - but ultimately, the questions behind the soul, is what you make of it. Is it a blessing? Is it a part of a greater cycle? Is it a predetermined route? ... It is human nature to keep questioning, to keep debating, to keep living. All in all, these great mysteries of the world are what drive us to seek more and stay alive.
POV: The fitting cliche of "life is what you make of it" is umpteen in conceiving the world - like Lanza and many other individuals, the belief that the world exists only to what you believe is strikingly acceptable. The theory is competent in all divisions of life. The Law of Attraction, the virtues in Karma, the belief of "do good, be good" - everything ties up to manifest your ultimate life's journey.
You are the universe - expressing itself in human form. They can only see you as they see themselves. They can only love you, as they love themselves. It's the universe (it's your universe, and their universe) ... it's never personal.
No measure of intellectual power to demotivated languor could possibly unlock the secret of the soul. As a child of the Universe, the most we could do is let nature run her course. Deflect from tainting curiosity and destructive behavior and simply, live.
