The Science Behind Life, Death, Soul and Resurrection

February 9, 2021

What is death scientifically? Do we have a soul? If yes, how is it? In my NLP seminars, one of the participants raised a question about this. Do we have a soul? Do we have a resurrection? Do we die? What is death? Let us understand and compare it through the window of science and religion. This article can be considered a new understanding of life and death, soul and resurrection.

Is there death? No. Is there any soul? No. Is there a resurrection? No. Is there destruction? No. Then what is there? There is only ‘the energy’ changing its form of existence from one format to another frequently.

Energy is neither created nor destroyed. It can change one form to another. This is one of the proven laws in science. The massive energy 'released' from the big bang's singularity (understand that the big bang is not an explosion!) is distributed through the various work of creation and destruction (transformation). There is no destruction or death. There is only 'one continuous process,' the change in form.' When we start to change one format to another, a series of reactions take place. The first one is energy goes out from the body, and the body becomes lifeless or energy-less or dead. This energy in divinity is called the soul. Death is nothing but the body without energy (soul).

Once the source of energy moves out from the body, the body decomposes to take various forms. There is no waste. There is no junk. Some organs may take many years to disappear from the old existence entirely, but they do change form. The birth, life, death, and resurrection is nothing but various forms of energy. Whatever exists through the creation goes out in the form of destruction (transformation), is all the game of energy.

Most of us may be knowing that even massive stars explode in a supernova. That is the death of the star. As we all know, when exploding in a supernova, giant stars take new life in the form of becoming neutron stars, dwarf stars, other small planets, and black-holes (our earth is one such product). The byproduct of a supernova depends on the mass of the giant star before the explosion. Interestingly each byproduct of the star-death is not a lifeless thing. One of the byproduct black-holes, the gravitation is so powerful that nothing can escape from it, including light. This is the visible form of death and subsequent resurrection (or change in the form of energy), a significant proof for life after death.

Understand that in the above real-time explanation, the new creations like neutron stars, dwarf stars, black holes, and other small planets are all having massive energy in them. If the supernova is a death that we claim as an end of a star, the new creations aren’t have been possible since a dead, lifeless thing cannot start a life with massive energy . This phenomenon is a clear example that death is nothing but a transformation to a new energy form.

It is like demolishing an old building that neared its life to construct a new one at the same place with modern architecture. Aging human body is one such building ready to be demolished into a new form of architecture.

Human death is also very sillier. It, too, changes its form of energy, which we can’t witness personally. We don’t know what we will become. This gave rise to the fear of death. All other fears are borne from this fear, safety of one’s own life, and fear of death.

Therefore there is no death. And hence there should not be fear of death. We ‘die’ to change form. Therefore resurrection or change of state is immediate, like the water boils to become vapor. The process of destruction is the creation of a new form of being (energy). Thus there is no destruction and loss. The soul is nothing but energy.

There is nothing waste over here. Even the stone is alive. That’s why it supports the building you and I reside. If it had no life, a rock wouldn’t have helped the building to stand still. For its purpose, the stone is alive in that shape and form, hard and dense. There are plenty of things in the universe that is much denser than the rock. Nothing in the ecosystem is waste /useless. In whatever form it is, God has a plan to balance his creation. [We wrongly ill-treat as useless, someone who is doing an ‘odd’ job, imagine a day without such person present in the society. We can understand who is useless. E.g.; - imagine a day the garbage collecting vehicle is absent].

Present-day people have a better understanding of death compare to the past. Hence the fear of death has been reduced, which led to an increase in suicides (can be a point of debate). The grief of loss is less felt now a day unlike in the past.

Understand that we are not created to be destroyed later. There is no destruction, as I said before. The process of death (transformation) is systematic and not of all of a sudden. Our body cells are replaced daily from day one. Eventually, the entire body give up, and we want to go as the change of form becomes necessary and a reality. Every soul, which is the energy, is meant to be reconnected with the creator. As science says, one day will come where everything will fall back to the singularity from where the big bang started completing the cycle.

That doesn’t mean that we don’t have punishment for wrong deeds. Science also says about action and reaction. But indeed, not a death penalty or permanent destruction. It is because God is love, and therefore he is God. Punishment is to purify to take back everything the way he sent, in a pure form. Every day the day ends, and that sunset is also beautiful like a sunrise. Death is like that sunset. That is why death is peaceful, like a sunset.

I am going ahead of you to the almighty, the creator, to reserve a room for you-This is what Jesus Christ assured us before ascending to the heavens. God’s creation is so massive that each of us individually can own an entire galaxy containing billions of stars in each galaxy. This is the proven science about the number of galaxies in the universe.

If a soul is an energy, you may ask what the inner voice we refer to as the ''soul'' so far, the voice that helps us identify right and wrong? In simple terms, the inner voice is our mother's womb initially, our mother lap during tender age, the environment we grew up from the time of conception to the point where we develop our reasoning ability. That is why, in psychology, our formative years are of such importance. Therefore the soul is nothing but the positive energy planted from conception to the environment of values we were sent to grow up. We differ in our opinions about right and wrong since the physical and psychological environment differs from one to another, giving rise to either saints or sinners.

So what is Life? When we answer this question, it will clear the meaning of death. Life, in my opinion, is a purifying process. We experience karma, the reaction of action, which may be the purifying process in which we experience various sorts of pains and miseries. Life is like taking a bath before sleep after a hectic day full of activities. Death is a peaceful sleep of changing the form of energy. Change of record is a 'new morning' where you see God's face when you wake up instead of the Sun.

The human race is the superior creations of all other designs, maybe the final form of energy before we reunite with the almighty. That is why let us make all efforts to live this gift of life gracefully.

We can understand that nowhere science and religion are clashing with their meaning of death and resurrection. They are entirely congruent with each other.

    Life Death and Resurrection beautifully depicted in the last chapter of Bible in the Book of Revelation Chapter 22, Who will make it or How to make it to the Restored Garden of Eden, which may be just a decade or two away to 1000 years of Peace. Eden Restored 22 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 3 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. 4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever... to be read upto verses 21. (Rev 22:1-21.)

    What about past life regression (many psychiatrists practice this); rebirth which has been proven scientifically in many parts of the world! Kindly read the book "Laws of the Spirit World" by Khorshed Bhavnagari!

    Hats off to Vincent ji for lovely article that tries to conceptualise secrecy behind, life death and re-incarnation. This is what scriptures of many religions are saying in different ways but we mortals tend to understand it less. I appreciate his attempt to use allegory of energy. Technically consciousness is energy and it carries with it smriti or memories, that is how reincarnated carries memories/vritthies(impressions) to next life. The punishment that is given after so called death is being reincarnated in a different body as human/animal/tree/ or something to pay for the negative karma done in previous life. Those who are pure in heart/mind & action do not go through the life/death process, they remain in kaivalya/salvation/Jannah as per major religious belief system I totally agree on the concept of everything in seen universe is energy, which is vibrating in different frequencies, we are also bundle of energy that vibrates to certain frequency. Very interesting article.....well done

    One of the best articles I ever read trying to explain the process of life and death. We do have limitations in understanding the actual universe, including which we haven’t explored so far. I think the writer has attempted to contain the fear of death. About the unknown, hypothesis are plenty, including the presence of multi-verses. Good article indeed.

    The 'science' that author has tried to incorporate in this write-up sounds more like pseudoscience than pure science. It's common knowledge that what we know about the observable universe amounts to only 5% of total matter and energy, remaining 95% is known as dark energy/matter and apart from its presence, nothing is known about it so far. Ever increasing acceleration of moving galaxies attributed to dark energy. The known 5% matter and energy is made of 17 fundamental particles ( 8 matter particles fermions and 9 force carrying particles bosons) and as per Quantum Field Theory, at quantum level everything is is 'field' . Author says soul is energy, can he explain where does soul fit in this? There are many hypothesises about ultimate fate of universe, Big Crunch (everything collapsing back into singularity) is just one of them. There's Heat death, Big bounce, Big Rip among others. Also the notion that 'nothing can escape black holes' is obsolete. Stephen Hawking has proved that black holes lose energy by emitting what is known as 'Hawking Radiation' which leads to the total 'evaporation' of black holes eventually.

    Nice one!!! It brought me to realization that, neither Science nor Religion, one thought is that, the cycle is the same. Life is to fragile to last forever. Death is too imperfect to have the last say. Resurrection is just new life that begins the process again. Keep on writing! God Bless.....

    Correct, Soul lives forever. Also, An Angel on The Body, Soul and Spirit in a message to Valentina Papagna dated 03/27/2018 "In the morning while I was praying, the angel appeared and asked, “Would you like to see three parts of you?” I said, “What do you mean three parts of me?” He said, “Come here! Stand next to me and I will show you.” With his right hand, pointing to the ground, the angel instructed me to look down. As I looked down, all of a sudden, I was astonished to see three of me lying down. I could see three identical images of myself, lying on the ground, side by side. I had never experienced this before. I said, “Oh my Lord! What does this mean?’ “I will show you,” said the angel. “You see, the first one is your body. The second one is your soul. The third one is the Holy Spirit. Then you become one. This is how the Holy Trinity designed you. This is for all of you. It is the same for each person in the world.” He then said, “This is designed by the most Holy Trinity. Your body is the temple of the soul and of the Holy Spirit. Woe to those who abuse the soul and the spirit. They abuse God’s grace. When your life ceases on earth, then the body remains on earth, but the soul and spirit return to God. They belong to God.” We should look after our body, soul and spirit, and not abuse them. We should live a chaste life, and we must be grateful to the most Holy Trinity... Sadly, it is true, many people believe that once a person dies, there is only the body, but there is also the soul and spirit which continues. That is why God wants us to be purified one hundred per cent, before coming back to Him"... Ref:

    Very nice article Vincent. I can add that the mind is the creator of all reality and illusion as understood and perceived by us. There is a higher consciousness in each of us. The total consciousness of all is a constant and the balance is maintained by the negative and positive forces. You have nicely explained it and deep thought is required to understand the concepts as you have presented. Finally I conclude by saying man is what he perceives to be and believes in. Belief is what will reign supreme. Self belief is the best belief.
