Does Death Exist?


by Robert Lanza, MD

Many of us fear death. We believe in death because we have been told we will die. We associate ourselves with the body, and we know that bodies die. But a new scientific theory suggests that death is not the terminal event we think.

Although individual bodies are destined to self-destruct, the “I” feeling is just a fountain of energy operating in the brain. But this energy doesn’t just go away at death.

One well-known aspect of quantum physics is that certain observations cannot be predicted absolutely. Instead, there is a range of possible observations each with a different probability. One mainstream explanation, the “many-worlds” interpretation, states that each of these possible observations corresponds to a different universe (the ‘multiverse’). A new scientific theory – called biocentrism – refines these ideas. There are an infinite number of universes, and everything that could possibly happen occurs in some universe. Death does not exist in any real sense in these scenarios. All possible universes exist simultaneously, regardless of what happens in any of them. Although individual bodies are destined to self-destruct, the alive feeling – the ‘Who am I?’- is just a 20-watt fountain of energy operating in the brain. But this energy doesn’t go away at death. One of the surest axioms of science is that energy never dies; it can neither be created nor destroyed. But does this energy transcend from one world to the other?

Consider an experiment that was recently published in the journal Science showing that scientists could retroactively change something that had happened in the past. Particles had to decide how to behave when they hit a beam splitter. Later on, the experimenter could turn a second switch on or off. It turns out that what the observer decided at that point, determined what the particle did in the past. Regardless of the choice you, the observer, make, it is you who will experience the outcomes that will result. The linkages between these various histories and universes transcend our ordinary classical ideas of space and time. Think of the 20-watts of energy as simply holo-projecting either this or that result onto a screen. Whether you turn the second beam splitter on or off, it’s still the same battery or agent responsible for the projection.

According to Biocentrism, space and time are not the hard objects we think. Wave your hand through the air – if you take everything away, what’s left? Nothing. The same thing applies for time. You can’t see anything through the bone that surrounds your brain. Everything you see and experience right now is a whirl of information occurring in your mind. Space and time are simply the tools for putting everything together.

Death does not exist in a timeless, spaceless world. In the end, even Einstein admitted, “Now Besso” (an old friend) “has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us…know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” Immortality doesn’t mean a perpetual existence in time without end, but rather resides outside of time altogether.

This was clear with the death of my sister Christine. After viewing her body at the hospital, I went out to speak with family members. Christine’s husband – Ed – started to sob uncontrollably. For a few moments I felt like I was transcending the provincialism of time. I thought about the 20-watts of energy, and about experiments that show a single particle can pass through two holes at the same time. I could not dismiss the conclusion: Christine was both alive and dead, outside of time.

Christine had had a hard life. She had finally found a man that she loved very much. My younger sister couldn’t make it to her wedding because she had a card game that had been scheduled for several weeks. My mother also couldn’t make the wedding due to an important engagement she had at the Elks Club. The wedding was one of the most important days in Christine’s life. Since no one else from our side of the family showed, Christine asked me to walk her down the aisle to give her away.

Soon after the wedding, Christine and Ed were driving to the dream house they had just bought when their car hit a patch of black ice. She was thrown from the car and landed in a banking of snow.

“Ed,” she said “I can’t feel my leg.”

She never knew that her liver had been ripped in half and blood was rushing into her peritoneum.

After the death of his son, Emerson wrote “Our life is not so much threatened as our perception. I grieve that grief can teach me nothing, nor carry me one step into real nature.”

  1. energy may not go away – but information does/ and structure also. So the energy that went into making you may survive but “you” may be gone. it may disperse into droplets so small that it might come back as 100 thousand house flies. Who can say?

    • Maybe you already have dispersed into the cosmic fog, and now you’re just watching the re-runs! The real question of all questions is who are YOU? …As in WHO wants to know? Can you ask yourself a question? And… are you one being under the illusion you are two?

  2. her mom had to go the elks club and the sister could not miss a card game rather than get to Christine’s wedding? i think its crystal clear to any perceptive person why Christine had a bad life – Her family was no damn good.

  3. Since the self would have to be non material to survive death and since science it only operates in the material arena, science will never prove the after death state! The only proof possible would be a personal experience such as being conscious while being outside the body. Usually good lucid dream or near death experience will be convincing!
    There is a group that teaches soul travel and discovering the non physical true self as part of its teaching : ECKANKAR

  4. Ohh No…Then the whole plan to screw the Illuminati up is of no use..If these evil could exist for ever…then whats the use of waking up…Think about Bush, Obama, Rothschild and worse lady gaga living for ever :)

    If their brain energy lives for ever…then surely I want to die

    • Did you hear about the dyslexic, agnostic, insomniac that couldn’t get to sleep because he stayed up at night wondering if there really was a DOG.

  5. Everything around us, ourselves included are nothing but energy and as you say, energy cannot die. Most probably our thoughts die, but we are not our thoughts so once again we cannot die. If thoughts and actions don’t define us and they die anyway, then what defines us that keeps us going? Our spirits or souls. They are not physically attached to our bodies, as energy they have no boundaries and cannot be trapped. They are able to flow freely in any dimension and so we go on, in a new form, but we go on. Death is a 3D concoction, once again designed to instill fear and create control. God help the dark ones if everyone knew they were limitless!!!Thanks Zen! VK

    • I prefer the term cessation to “death”. If death means cessation of a state of being, then death surely occurs; but if it means exiting, escaping The Universe and be no more, such is logically impossible, for nothing can escape The Universe. It is the Universal Law of Existence: Nothing exits The Universe. Death of a Human as in part of the entity “being no more” is impossible on two fronts, both physically and immaterially:

      a) the physical dead corps/ash/gas re-enters The Universe, thus, continuing to be/exist.
      b) “intelligence/the soul/energy” which had entered the being cannot cease or be ceased. Intelligence is not an effect of biology but, is acquired directly from The Universe. It lingers on after the cessation of the physical body from one form to the other.

      In conclusion, both the physical and immaterial entities that make up a Human remain in The Universe after cessation.

  6. I had an out of body experience. While drifting in a tunnel with every shade of purple imaginable I had my thoughts with me. I kept thinking how beautiful the colors were. When two white fluttering doves stopped me from where I was floating too I was upset. I wanted to keep going.

  7. “Well, the Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together.”

  8. Here’s a test to see if you will ever time travel.

    Take a spade out into a field near you and dig a hole anywhere and see if you left yourself a time capsule. If you find the time capsule, then you have to determine the exact location of the hole to bury the time capsule in for you to find in the future.

  9. Energy may ‘transcend’ the universe (perhaps it could directly by going through a boundary like a singularity, or wormhole) but the consciousness that is you is a pattern of information. And information can be created, distorted, or even lost. The pattern on you brain that we call the mind is just information, and if we could record it, then perhaps we could communicate it to another universe, but that universe, unless very similar, might not support life as we know it, and if it was that similar, we would just die there, too. What this multi-verse theory is talking about is a block universe, which is eternal, and thus with no time, there is no birth, no death, everything that can happen does happen, eternally. Unfortunately our conception of consciousness is mired in time, without a past and a pressent, then the idea has no meaning.

  10. If the mother and sister had attended the wedding then the timeline might have been altered and the accident avoided. Did they bother going to the funeral? As Bill Hicks said, ‘it’s just a ride, and you can get off it whenever you want to’.

  11. “Our life is not so much threatened as our perception. I grieve that grief can teach me nothing nor carry me one step into real nature”

    My fear of death vanished the day my Dad died, if I had feared it at all. I was 31. In the following 22 years was present at 2 seperate deaths, (friend and my mother), the process may be emotional for the witnesses, but a release for those dying. They do not want any physical contact hindering their release, and a single tear rolled its way slowly down each of their faces at the exact moment life ceased in the body.
    I believe it was a tear of joy. Wherever their spark of light, their part of the whole went to, is anybody’s guess. But they did it joyously when the time came.
    Death is the next step in the journey, I will embrace it fully when the time comes and meet it head on if needs be.
    Always look forward to your pieces Zen, very provocative.

  12. We don’t really KNOW anything. I have learned that it is better for my emotional well-being to try to just live in the present moment.

    I have learned that Grief is a peculiar frequency. Strange things don’t frequently happen to me, but when someone close to me dies, I always have one or several inexplicable happenings in the days and weeks that follow. Unlike many, I don’t see this as a ‘sign’ from the deceased, or that Life goes on in another realm, but something that happens on the specific frequency that is Grief.

    I think that it is irrelevant what happens when we die. Life is the challenge, and once we’ve got that licked, death will take care of itself.

  13. So amazing we still give scientist dopes so much credence. Sooo late to the game . . . and theirs is a childish techno-bauble game at that.

    Awareness is the key. No, not GOD. There is no such thing – except in the comic book stories invented by boys who want to be god.

    Years ago, exactly nine months after an amazing experience (first and only time) of an incredible fungus, I awoke in the night. I was completely and totally aware; I had consciousness.

    And then, in the darkness, I realized I had no idea where I was, who I was or even that I was except that I was aware of this.

    Oh my gosh. I was, indeed, absolutely nowhere, yet completely aware of that state of being. It was remarkable.

    And then, suddenly, the small little body self of me PANICKED! Still, I was simply aware of the fact that I was in a state of Panic.

    In order to come back to this material world, I literally went through the pathways of constructing that physical reality. It went like this:

    Where am I???!

    After a few moments: I am lying in a bed. Then, all of a sudden, I could actually feel myself lying in the bed. Okay, I have place established. And then I filled in the place of the bed in a room, in a specific location in a particular part of the country of the united states. And that room had my things in it. And those things are . . .

    The very last thing that came to me. And it came to me after much pondering, really, was my name.

    It was an amazing experience.

    Though our physical reality deconstructs itself through death, I KNOW awareness does not. And I have experienced it personally, in a way that no authority, no jerkoff quantum physicist or priest could ever comprehend in their little laboratories and monkish cells. Let them have that. Have a nice time studying, boys.

    I’ll take mine.
    I know what I will leave this small dimensionality with: an awareness that transcends it.

  14. You will percieve death to be what it can be–really is for enlightened souls-a glorious transition-a gift,greater life,greater creativity and an experience of ‘ECSTATIC BEING” you have not yet dreamed of..(CHRIST RETURNS-SPEAKS HIS TRUTH)

  15. ha…stand in front of a Protestant church door at 12.15 pm on a sunday…yes death is real as you will find out from the churchgoers stampeding to the nearest Bar or Liquor store as they run you over and pray for you in jeeeesus’s name……..”BE HEALED”…..

  16. When one gets evicted from the body, ones experiences will be mostly concerned with events while out of the body. Learning to”soul travel” in preparation would be wise move.
    “Journey of Souls”, a book describing what happens between lives, could be of interest to people investigating this topic.
