The afterlife (also referred to as life after death or the world to come) is a purported existence in which the essential part of an individual's identity or their stream of consciousness continues to live after the death of their biological body. According to various impressions about the afterlife, the essential aspect of the individual that lives on after death may be some partial element, or the entire soul or spirit, of an individual, which carries with it and may confer personal identity or, on the contrary nirvana. Belief in an afterlife is in contrast to the belief in oblivion after death.
Most of us have learned of near-death experiences. The stories of people who died and returned to life with tales of wafting through a tunnel to a distant light have become a part of popular culture. Yet there is another category of near-death experiences that are, in some ways, even more puzzling.
Stories about shared-death experiences have been circulating since the late 19th century, say those who study the phenomenon. The twist in shared-death stories is that it’s not just the people at the edge of death that get a glimpse of the afterlife. Those near them, either physically or emotionally, also experience the sensations of dying.
Short of dying and experiencing the afterlife for yourself, science has no way to directly test the existence or absence of an afterlife.
Nonetheless, just as gravity predicts 1-ton diamonds to fall, several theories in science tell us that life continues after death.
Since the heart is intimately intertwined with the functioning of the lungs and brain stem, any process that leads one organ to stop working will inevitably lead to the termination of the other two. In short, if any of those three vital organs ceases functioning, death soon follows. Even today, doctors still often declare death at the precise point in time when a patient’s heartbeat comes to a halt.
Dr Carroll states “the laws of physics underlying normal life are totally understood” and everything happens within the realms of likelihood.
He says for there to be an afterlife, consciousness would want to be something that is entirely segregated from our biological body – which it is not.
Rather, consciousness at the very fundamental level is a sequel of atoms and electrons which essentially give us our sense.
