Does quantum mechanics predict the existence of a spiritual"soul"? Testimonials from prominent physics researchers frominstitutions such as Cambridge University, Princeton University, and the Max Planck Institute forPhysics in Munich claim that quantum mechanics predicts some version of"life after death." They assert that a person may possess a body-soulduality that is an extension of the wave-particle duality of subatomicparticles.Wave-particle duality, a fundamental concept of quantummechanics, proposes that elementary particles, such as photons and electrons,possess the properties of both particles and waves.
These physicists claim that they can possibly extend this theory to the soul-body dichotomy.
If there is a quantum code for all things, living and dead, then there is an existence afterdeath (speaking in purely physical terms). Dr. Hans-Peter Dürr, former head ofthe Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich, posits that, just as a particle"writes" all of its information on its wave function, the brain isthe tangible "floppy disk" on which we save our data, and this datais then "uploaded" into the spiritual quantum field.
Continuing with this analogy, when we die the body, orthe physical disk, is gone, but our consciousness, or the data on the computer,lives on.
