Is There Life After Death? Science Thinks Maybe Not

Is There Life After Death? Science Thinks Maybe Notby 👩‍💻 Alice Monroe

Life itself is a huge quandary to humankind. Why are we here? Where are we going? What happens when we die? That last question is perhaps one of the biggest of them all, particularly as no one has been able to supply a concrete answer at least from a scientific perspective. Various religions speak of an afterlife and a reward or punishment awaiting us when we all finally pass away – but with so many different interpretations on what happens to us when our bodies finally expire, how are we to know who is really telling the truth? Does reincarnation exist? Will we go to heaven, or to hell? One physics professor and expert at the California Institute of Technology has advised that – in all scientific probability – maybe not.

The concept of there being an afterlife at all is one which is millennia old – but Dr Sean Carroll advises that probability dictates such a concept to be wishful thinking. “Claims that some form of consciousness persists after our bodies die and decay into their constituent atoms face one huge, insuperable obstacle – the laws of physics underlying everyday life are completely understood,” Dr Carroll observes. “There’s no way within those laws to allow for the information stored in our brains to persist after we die.”

Carroll also advised that the Quantum Field Theory, or QFT, would show evidence of an afterlife during extensive testing. QFT tests show that each type of particle in the universe has its own respective and specific field – and so far, no evidence of any particles pointing to life after death have been identified. It’s a fairly strong comment to be making – but it will also back up years and decades of research made by other experts and bodies.

What happens to us after why die – and why we are all here at all – are two massive questions we may never be able to fully understand or to even answer. There are various theories – with some recent ones even suggesting it is remotely possible that we are all part of a computer simulation akin to The Matrix – and considering where we go when we pass away is hardly anything new. However, science, for now, has come up short – does this leave things wide open for research in future? Or will someone be able to answer one or two of the big questions for us as technology progresses?
