Do The Body Trap The Soul?

Many people's hope for afterlife comes from the belief that the body is a shell or a container etc that house an invisible entity termed 'the soul'. The soul, so it is said, is the cause of our consciousness and sometimes it is equated to the consciousness itself. One difficulty that arises from this idea comes from the fact that we cannot exit our bodies at will. Why can't we simply leave our bodies behind once and for all and go to heaven and enjoy the bliss forever? This gives rise to the notion that our bodies somehow 'traps' the soul. Since our bodies are composed of charges of opposite signs etc, it is tempting to suppose that any such a system such as a computer can similarly trap the soul so that just like the way we can never exit our bodies, someone might, in future, invent a device that can hopelessly trap us forever inside say a machine, and possibly torturing us even forever! Thus the very hope of an afterlife is effectively turned on its own head!

The 'original sin' comes from the baseless belief that our consciousness is due to an unseen, entity that the supposedly understandable matter can somehow 'trap' it without itself being understandable, and hence 'there being no need' to carefully think of, and attempt to understand what we are believing in. I vehemingly reject this approach! We should try to understand 'the soul' as much as we do, 'the body'. We must try to explain how the body, or the soul, can achieve this fleat of 'getting trapped into each other' without them 'being on the same universe.

It comes as a surprise to many people to learn that if the soul is what we are, then it can, at least in principle, be studied scientifically! This being the case, we can also create theoretical models to 'explain' the soul, just like we do, to explain the forces of nature, such as gravity. To a careful physicist, or a philosopher, etc, the soul interacting with the body must come about like a 'fifth force' that has an effect in our bodies. This 'fifth force' can be discovered by carefully studying the brain and specifically noting how there is an effect that cannot be accounted for by known forces.

Since it seems that some people find it hard to understand this fact that 'soul' is discoverable by the usual scientific method, let me try to elucidate it more. Now, in a 'vacuum', we know how charged particles behave, in accordance with laws of electrodynamics. So for instance under a constant voltage, they will accelerate steadily. But if they encounter a 'soul' on its way, generaly they will alter their acceleration in such a way that a physicis will notice that either something is wrong with the laws of electrodynamics or there is some yet unknown 'fift force' that is at work on the particle. However the soul has just acted upon the charge in exactly the same manner it would have acted upon the charges in your brain so that it may eventually influence the body to act in a certain manner, e.g. raising your hand in what we term it as 'our conscious decision'. So it is clear that we cannot answer the question as to why the soul has never been detected by physicists by saying 'it is beyond understanding' or 'we feel it' or 'the mind is limited' or such jocker cards. These are false, absurd and misleading! We can and should understand 'soul' up to the point of explaining how it is consistent with known facts. To do that, we must make some model for 'soul'.

One explanation is that the disembodied 'soul' does not interact with charges. This bestows the soul with mechanisms of enabling and disabling its ability to interact with electromagnetism. This mechanism must be instantaneous. Upon exiting the body, the soul must be able to instantaneously switch off its electromagnetism. But this ability also automatically makes the soul incapable of being trapped by another machine, e.g. a computer. But since we can't use this ability to intentionally exit our bodies, there must be some rules followed by the soul that has no counterpart in the rules followed by the matter.

  • Take a closer look at the magnet ic tape recorder. You can see that the recording head is an horse-shoe electromagnet. This electromagnetic pilarizes the tape as it runs through it. But the polarization remains even after the reading head is removed, recording the info.

    But we can see that this scenario is exactly the same as 'vacuum polarization', with the only difference being that we are using charges in place of magnets, and the 'vacuum' itself in the place of the tape. Since our bodies, and especially the brain activities are charges, our brain behaves exactly like the magnetic tape recorder. Since we move through space, the 'empty space' records every activity in our brains!!

    But I can even go far more ahead and explain why the 'vacuum' is exactly like the magnetic tape using the equations of quantum electrodynamics!!
  • Since, as we have seen, it is prudent to seek for what 'soul' might be amongst things that not only has a physical impact on the seen matter, but alo can be observed to do so by a careful physicist, what if we consider the so called 'vacuum polarization' in the vicinity of charged particles? Soon you Will see that the philosophers realy needed not to dispute with the idea that the brain is the one that generates consciousness. To explain the persistence of consciousness after death, we can settle to a billions of times easier idea than the mind-bending 'immaterial' idea. We can just show that the brain does not hold the monopoly in generating consciousness. Then the argument that it is the brain that generates consciousness turns on its own head, as we will see it shortly!

    The activity crucial to generation of consciousness is just the charge polarization across the cell membranes in the neurones. But like you can see it in the diagram below, every charged particle creats a corresponding polarization in the 'vacuum' that effectively recreats a slightly bigger but invisible charger right next to the charged particle. In other words, every charged particle 'induces its own charge' into the 'vacuum'. This means that the entire pattern of charges is the cell membrane that generates your consciousness is exactly replicated in the vacuum! Furthermore it is done in such a way that there are ever more layers of 'charge bodies' that are created on top of each other, forming what looks like a giant onion! So if consciousness is due to pattern of charges a cross the cell membrane, like they insists, then the very same consciousness can be induced into the 'vacuum'.

    It only remains to wonder what happens once the body is removed. But this one rings a bell! This is the exact way the magnetic tape recording works, albeit we use magnetic poles in place of charges. If you polarize the magnetic tape using the magnetized head, the polarization persists even after you remove the head, recording the info!

    Also the whatever info in the 'polarized body', it will be very 'deem' to the awarenes, especially after the body is removed, much in the same way the polarized tape requires amplification. This explains why we dont experience our awareness in the 'empty space'. As long as there is the strong charge that is our seen body, it eclipses the faint charge in the vacuum just like the sun eclipses the stars in daytime. However, when we die, or when we sleep, things becomes different, and we might begin experiencing the more unseen body together with its own experiences, much like the way stars get revealed during the night.
  • Perhaps the following analogy will help you. Let 'light' be analogous to 'life'. Then 'torch' be analogous to the body. To say that 'there is light after the damage of the torch', which is analogous to 'there is life after death', we dont need to say that the light is not caused by the torch, but by something 'immaterial' inside the torch. You can just show that the light generated by other objects, and even in the seemingly 'empty space' is or can be the same same light emitted by the now damaged torch. This will be straight foward. When light comes off the torch, it now exists in the 'empty space'. Thus 'empty space' can take the light of the torch. In a closely similar way, the 'empty space' can take the life in the body. It is 'empty space' undersood this way that I call it 'the soul that pervades everywhere.' I am not talking of 'soul' in the traditional sense of 'the immaterial'. What I suppose, I can explain its existence scientifically. So you gotta first be sure of my definition for 'soul' before we can discuss about its existence. Don't assume that I mean the same thing that they mean in church or in new age.
  • 'Soul' as preached in churches or new age might as well be surreal, and this is what I am trying to elucidate. Unfortunately, the idea of 'soul' came about during a time people did not understand matter well, nor what exactly is in the 'empty space'. By 'soul', they almost always mean 'that which science cannot ascertain its existence' and so it will always be the case that 'there is no scientific evidence for soul'. But that is not how I use the word 'soul'.

    But since the proponents of 'soul' are often stubborn in the 'immaterial' or 'not science' ideas, I will put it more bluntly and state that given our modern scientific understanding of 'empty space', we nolonger need any 'soul'! This is because we have a reason to believe that 'empty space' can possess consciousness and also can transmitt it from one brain to another. We don't need another unknown, so called 'immaterial' entity to explain reincarnation etc. Neither do we need to insist that our consciousness is not the result of the physical brain. This is because we now understand that there are invisible things in 'empty space' that are similar to the brain as far as 'taking consciousness' is concerned. So afterlife, reincarnation etc can still take place even if brain is what generates our consciousness.

    So 'immaterial entities' are superfluous. If you insist that 'soul' must be 'immaterial', then I will tell you bluntly that we don't need such an entity!
  • Hello! Your body can't trap something that isn't real in the first place and besides there is no concrete scientific evidence for the existance for a soul in the first place.No soul but a aspect of Infinity known as the supra-consciousness.exists and I declare myself here to be soulless and godless! I'am a good person without these imaginary things for comfort and besides there are many people like me out there.Its only a matter of time that I connect with all of them that's for sure well other than explaining my illusion for a soul there isn't much I can say further take care everyone and tap into the Elohim potential within your own DNA goodbye!
  • You get it! The laser light interconnects distant regions in the hologram and the project it onto nearby regions in the image. Similarly the consciousness might 'interconnect' several portions in the 'empty space' and project it onto a given region creating an illusion that the image is all there is. But in reality, the unseen hologram is the more fundamental reality.

    This is more than analogy. In QM, the wavicles spreads throughout the whole space so that every particle is technically 'omnipresent', just like in holograms. The discrete particles manifest at a region where the waves pile up so that their amplitudes add up at a given region and then diminish rapidly with distance, forming the famous 'Gaussian bell'. This is exactly how holograms are made!

    Your 'soul' then is spatially extended away from your body, just like the presence of earth is felt on moon via its gravity. In every region where you 'aura' is there, the experience is communicated throughout. While the seen body is alife, the information flowing to the body, which is communicated to every point in the 'aura', eclipses all the info flowing to those other portions. This creats the illusion that 'we are inside our bodies'. So 'the soul comming out of the body' is not literal. We are just realizing the soul's existence outside of the body as well. This also explains why meditation might reveal other unseen world. It 'deems' the seen world in some way.
  • Yes I agree that the hologram comparison is pretty good...Our multiple planar tiers of bodies, being "shards" of a singular image...The spiritual self, or Monad, being the source...The physical form being a reflection of the soul's will and related to it, much as a holograph projection...And we could also suggest similar status, between the Monad and Soul, on even high planes.....

    And as we evolve, we bring all these shards back into singularity....Spirit is fully manifest in matter, as a result...

    A singular IMAGE, of particular form and particular tone....Yep, feeling groovy....;-)
  • The hologram analogy may also be good here. If you break an hologram into pieces, you find that each of those pieces can reconstruct the whole hologram, not a portion of it! In a similar way, the visible body is not the only entity that is generating your consciousness. The consciousness comes from several sources and they are 'projected onto the location of your body'. The death of the body is just a removal of a single piece of the hologram. The rest are intact and can still reconstruct the entire hologram.

    So the hope of afterlife need not come from the beleif that the body is just a shell housing an invisible 'soul' with the latter being the true source of consciousness. It can also come about if the body is not the ONLY source of consciousness. It just seems so because it is the 'densest' and so the awareness has 'gotten deem' in the 'empty space' and so we are not much aware of our presence there, much the same way we are not aware of the stars during day time.

    This model doesn't have many of those problems and the explanation of why 'we must wait till death' for the soul to come out is straight foward. The 'comming out of the soul' is illusory! Then of course the notion of 'trapping' such a 'soul' is meaningless simply because it pervades 'everywhere'!
  • I have found that the 'physics of soul disengagement from the body' to be challenging. Specifically, why must the body first die? Does the life somehow 'traps' the soul? But regardless of the explanation, it is clearer that the disembodied soul cannot be trapped by any matter since 'trapability' is closely ralated to 'observability'. You can't trap what you can't even inderectly observe!

    The scandalizing fact is that the incarnate soul must be observable, and so it is a good idea to seek for the 'soul' amongst things that scientists must have observed but did not understand it as soul! One such a possibility is the electrostatic field around atoms. This 'field' creats matter-antimatter polarization. In the vicinity of the body, this polarization pattern is as complex as the body itself, and it is clear that were it to persist in the 'vacuum' even after the body is removed off the place, it is capable of functioning like the body.

    To behave exactly like a soul, the polarized matter-antimatter potential must, immediately upon the removal of the seen body, become electrically neutral, becoming the so called 'weakly interacting particles' like those said to be what 'dark matter' is made of.

    The only 'problem' is that it is not immediately clear why such a model cannot create endless number of 'souls' in wherever the body occupies! I would say it does so, but as long as they are all connected to the seen body, we feel like we are in the seen body since maybe awareness is related to 'density'. It is much like the way, during day time, the sun seems to be the only bright object in the sky, with stars absent. So the death of the body is like the eclipsing of the sun, revealing stars! Upon the death of the body, no 'soul' actually comes off the body. We just realize more clearly that our consciousness is not concentrated to the body but is actually spread much wider throughout the seemingly 'empty' space.
  • Another factor that is being missed by the aspiring "soul trappers," is that they underestimate how intelligent an OOB person, in an aetheric body, actually is....The soul and astral are within the aetheric form, in this state....Our sensory perceptions are highly accute...We can read the minds of the conspirators, who would dare to attempt to trap us, in some computer, or whatever silliness they might contrive....In the invisible (to the eye and sensors) aetheric form, which exists upon the three highest aetheric sub-planes, (the lowest four being plasma, gas, liquid and solid, ) our minds and senses are able to easily outwit any physical dense opponent...We can float above them and evade their contraptions....We can move through solid walls and celings, to escape their efforts.....Our minds are clearer outside the brain..It being a receiver "crystal," of sorts...Not the causal factor behind consciousness....Merely the receiver and relay to the nervous system...

    So how can a person's soul be trapped....with such an advantage over the trapper...??
    We are not mindless beasts, to be easily lured into traps.....Not happening, ever...
