Scientists Who Support the Idea of a Spiritual Cosmos PDF Print E-mail

There are quite a few respected scientists who support and have delivered evidence for the idea of the spiritual nature of the Universe. They base their views upon the quantum physical effect of "entanglement".

Anton Zeilinger"It sounds like a delayed April fool's joke but the suggestion of some physicists is meant completely seriously. Latest results from quantum physics suggest that there is a physically describable soul which exists in the "afterlife".

The physical phenomenon that delivers the foundation for this revolutionary thesis is quantum entanglement. Already Albert Einstein discovered this strange effect, but filed it away as "spooky action at a distance". The Viennese quantum physics professor Anton Zeilinger has only recently delivered the experimental proof that this effect actually exists in reality. ..."

"People with near death experiences report of mysterious phenomena -- frequently of a tunnel at whose end light shines. Also respectable researchers claim: There really is a soul and immortal consciousness is a basic element of the world is the just like space, time, matter and energy.


Surprisingly, there are a large number of people who report in private conversations of experiences which are commonly regarded as supernatural. However out of fear of ridicule most of avoid speaking publicly on this. Does science have to say something on such ideas? There is a number of well-known physicists who now regard such effects as real. They have come to the revolutionary conclusion that there is a physically describable soul. The physical phenomenon that delivers the foundation for the breathtaking thesis is quantum entanglement.

Consequently Hans-Peter Dürr, former director of the reknowned Max-Planck-Institute for physics in Munich, thinks there is existence after death. "What we call the material world is the slag, matter, everything that can be touched. The afterlife is everything else, the greater reality, the much bigger side of reality", showing himself convinced. Our present life in this respect is already enveloped by the afterlife.

Such ideas are not completely new. The psychologist and psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung conducted a lively correspondence already in 1947 with the physicist and Nobel prize winner Wolfgang Pauli about the physical interpretation of so-called synchronicities. These are coincidences or events following each other in a timely manner which aren't connected causally but are interpreted as meaningful.

Surprisingly, the intensive correspondence between Jung and Pauli over half a century ago wasn't further taken note of for a long time. The idea that soul conditions and the material world should seem connected with each other and effect other was too daring for serious discussion by the researcher elite.

In the meantime Dürr recently has gotten support from the Heidelberg physicist Professor Markolf H. Niemz. He thinks that the soul passes away after death with the speed of light. Niemz teaches medical engineering at the University of Heidelberg. Besides this he deals intensively with research on near death experiences. This has delivered the decisive impulses for his thesis.

Persons affected feel pulled into a kind of tunnel

At a so-called near death experience the person affected suddenly feels that his soul separates from his physical body and seems to float over the scene of the event. A tunnels seems to open only moments. The person affected feels "drawn" towards it and floats up to a bright, but not dazzling light at the end.


The legendary American physicist Professor John A. Wheeler, who deceased two weeks ago, said: "Many physicists had hoped that the world would be classical in a certain sense, at least free of curiosities such as two objects at the same place at the same time. But such hopes were wrecked by a series of new experiments."

Last but not least the British nuclear physicist and molecular biologist Jeremy Hayward of the University of Cambridge does not hide his conviction: "Some scientists belonging to the scientific mainstream frankly say that consciousness next to space, time, matter and energy could be one of the basic elements of the world". He comes to the conclusion that human consciousness is even possibly more basic than space and time.

If this hypothesis of the avant-garde under the physicists should be confirmed in coming research, this might substantially influence our conception of the world. So science and religion would not be opposed to each other anymore. They could rather complement each other - such as the right and the left shoe of a person."

In the 2004 sleeper hit documentary "What the Bleep Do We know", two physicists appeared, John Hagelin and Fred Alan Wolf. Both believe in the interrelation between quantum physics and consciousness. John Hagelin has researched and published 70 papers on physics and cosmology, including string theory, creating one of the most successful unified field theories. In two papers Hagelin argues that the Vedic understanding of consciousness is identical with theories of the unified field of modern physics.
