Different Areas of Evidence for the Afterlife

* Nobel Prize winning physicist Dr Brian Jospehson and Professor Jessica Utts
claim that current science needs to adapt to accommodate the evidence that has accumulated for the paranormal.

" What are the implications for science of the fact that psychic functioning appears to be a real effect? These phenomena seem mysterious, but no more mysterious perhaps than strange phenomena of the past which science has now happily incorporated within its scope (Utts and Josephson 1996)."

Shifting Assumptions in Science.

* Dr Edgar Mitchell
PhD, scientist, test pilot, naval officer, astronaut, entrepreneur, author and lecturer. Founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences.

" A host of observed, but very basic human phenomena, including consciousness itself, have eluded rigorous scientific description by all disciplines of science. This is true, not because of insufficient evidence for a particular phenomenon's existence, but rather for lack of a theoretical construct which could fit within the prevailing paradigms of science. For millennia philosophers have pondered the nature of mind, consciousness and mind/matter interactions but without sufficient knowledge and technical capability to propose properly testable theories.

For the past century eminent men and women of science have accumulated thousands of pages of data on mind/mind and mind/matter interactions. Many of the most telling experiments have been criticized, perfected and repeated numerous times during the past five decades, using increasingly sophisticated technologies.

Meta analysis of these experiments produce accumulated probabilities against chance occurrences exceeding trillions to one (Radin, 1997).

It has required, however, that quantum science mature for seventy-five years and during that period, test, validate and synthesize a number of seemingly outrageous physical concepts arising from quantum theory, before testable theories could arise.

The missing concepts that prevented the earliest investigators of consciousness from succeeding in their quest were 1) a generalized theory of information, and 2) quantum science itself, with the associated phenomena of nonlocality, the zero point energy field and the quantum hologram.

In this interview Dr Mitchell argues
that " Quantum mechanics has suggested that the Cartesian duality is flawed; that body and mind are not two realms but two faces of the same realm namely energy."


* Dr Willis Harman, Ph.D., (deceased), President, Institute of Noetic Sciences, California and Emeritus Professor, Engineering- Economic Systems, Stanford University.

"Quantum physics showed that you could not leave out the consciousness of the observer."

"If there really is only a oneness, then everything effects everything."

* Professor Fred Alan Wolf PhD: theoretical physicist and writer on the subjects of quantum physics, consciousness, and their relationship.

"There is enough in the nature of the way the physical universe is constructed to indicate the presence of something called soul."

" the soul, which is non-physical and therefore not confined by movements in the material world, can travel faster than the speed of light...

So at the time of death, or during a near-death experience, it may very well be that the person transitions from the material world--that operates at speeds less than the speed of light--to a world that operates faster than light speed."

The Soul and Quantum Physics


* DAVID ASH, author of numerous books on quantum physics, mysticism and consciousness.

" I am predicting that in these worlds of superenergy beyond the speed of light there are going to be living intelligent beings and because our world is part of their world they can see us even if we can't see them...the laws of physics are exactly the same on each plane, the only difference is the speed of energy..."

In Part 5 of this interview David Ash explains how quantum physics can account for different planes where everything is just as solid as we are.

Many people in the world of quantum physics are thinking that consciousness is not an expression of our brains but consciousness is the common ground of existence that ultimately differentiates into space time energy information and matter.


* Professor Russell Targ PhD, American physicist, author and ESP researcher, pioneer of the laser.

He also co-founded the Stanford Research Institute's investigation into psychic abilities in the 1970s and 1980s. He authored numerous books suggesting that the mind itself reaches to the far ends of the universe and that it is this "non-local" quality, rather than any particular mechanism, that accounts for the remarkable data of parapsychology.

(In reference to remote viewing)

"When you quiet your mind you are able to expand your awareness and experience what is happening in different places and different times....so you couldn't possibly be a physical body.

* Dr Amit Goswami PhD. theoretical quantum physicist and author.

“ Materialist science takes it as its basic axiom that everything is matter. We have literally managed to train a whole generation of students on the idea that everything is material, but this Newtonian world view that has shaped our understanding for centuries is now giving way to the revelations of quantum physics which goes beyond materialism; to show that consciousness, not matter, is the ground of all being.”




* Dr. Claude Swanson, PhD, Applied physicist

has collated the "best evidence" illustrating the inadequacy of our present scientific paradigm. In his book, The Synchronized Universe, he describes scientifically controlled remote viewing and ESP experiments, demonstrations of long-range healing, psychokinesis (mind over matter), scientifically controlled experiments in levitation, teleportation and out of body phenomena (OBE). He outlines numerous examples of these strange forces being demonstrated under rigorous scientific conditions, with odds of millions or even billions to one against chance. Dr Swanson argues that there is a need for a new, truly "unified field theory" which can explain and understand both science and consciousness.

" A new scientific revolution is underway. Recent discoveries in the "hard sciences" as well as in parapsychology have demonstrated the existence of new scientific effects our science cannot explain."

It's our science that needs to be upgraded. It cannot progress by ignoring real things that happen in the universe. If we want a correct theory of physics and science needs to include all the phenomena. Science needs to enlarge itself and grow up and include the phenomena that right now are being ignored."




* Ron Pearson in his article Theoretical Physics Backs Survival talks about a new mathematical model he has developed. he writes: "Now, however, nearly all aspects of the paranormal, inclusive of survival, are seen as potentially real effects. Theoreticians are therefore no longer justified in their attempt to explain these away. Nor can they be justified any longer in resorting to any other kind of subterfuge for their discreditment. Instead a way is provided for physics to be revitalised and reformed to accept survival as a fact which in no way conflicts with its basic principles.

* Professor John O'M. Bockris Distinguished Professor
of Chemistry Texas A& M University (1982-1997)

Professor John Bockris in his book The New Paradigm--A Confrontation Between Physics and the Paranormal Phenomena (2005) discusses the evidence for the paranormal, including telepathy, near-death experiences, out-of-body travel, mediumship, reincarnation, apparitions, possession, distant healing, and other phenomena. He concludes that other concepts such as the paranormal, theories about consciousness, and interconnectedness must be integrated into science to enable a superior understanding of reality.

"Present science is incomplete, and able to retain its position largely by suppressing by ridicule fields of knowledge which are inconsistent with its fundamental concepts."

He concludes that other concepts such as the paranormal, theories about consciousness, and interconnectedness must be integrated into science to give us a much better understanding of the true nature of reality.

* Dr Thomas Campbell- Physicist and out of body explorer, Metaphysics & the Consciousness author of My Big T.O.E.

Argues that traditional science is “little picture science”, is not objective and is based on untested beliefs of materialism for which there is no justification.

" Our beliefs set the boundaries and define the limits of our science - they always have and any reasonably accurate history of science will verify that fact."

* Dr Charles Tart PhD, psychologist and parapsychologist, explorer of consciousness. Co-founder of Transpersonal Psychology.

..... it's not science that denies our spirituality, it's scientism, a rigid philosophy of materialism, masquerading as science.
