“Does The Soul Exist? Evidence Says Yes” – Psychology Today.
Traditionally, science has dismissed the soul as an object of human belief, or reduced it to a psychological concept that shapes our cognition of the observable natural world. But new understandings of consciousness have challenged this claim. According to the theory, consciousness is derived from microtubules within brain cells (neurons) that are sites of quantum processing. According to Dr. Hameroff of the University of Arizona and British physicist Sir Roger Penrosen, when the heart stops beating, the blood stops flowing, and the microtubules lose their quantum state, the quantum information in the microtubules isn’t destroyed. So could this explain near-death experiences, or the idea of our consciousness being eternal?:
“The quantum information within the microtubules is not destroyed, it can’t be destroyed, it just distributes and dissipates to the universe at large. It’s possible that the quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul,” he said. They have argued that our experience of consciousness is the result of quantum gravity effects in these microtubules, a theory which they dubbed orchestrated objective reduction (Orch-OR).
Thus it is held that our souls are more than the interaction of neurons in the brain. They are in fact constructed from the very fabric of the universe – and may have existed since the beginning of time. So yes, there is a part of your consciousness that is non-material and will live on after the death of your physical body.

An interesting new study shows that our minds can sense the future 2-10 seconds before the event takes place.
This study called “Predictive Physiological Anticipation Preceding Seemingly Unpredictable Stimuli: A Meta-Analysis” shows that your mind actually has an energetic reaction to the future before it happens and before you are even aware of it.
They concluded that ” the results of this meta-analysis indicate a clear effect, but we are not at all clear about what explains it”. Once again, we have mainstream scientifically stable studies that give credence to the psychic aspects of the mind and the paranormal abilities of the brain.
The next time you have a thought about something before it actually occurs, that’s because your brain really is picking up on it energetically in a way we can measure. Can this be explained by the pineal gland or the consciousness field as discussed in previous posts? Is time actually non-linear?
The Internet has open up doors for people all over the world to share their creations and ideas literally at the speed of light. but with this influx of information and the frequency at which it moves has left previous laws and standards on Intellectual Properties obsolete.
Copying Is Not Theft
With words like theft and piracy being thrown around the media,governments and businesses have been scrambling trying to fight against this new paradigm of light speed information sharing. It’s only logical for them, they don’t want change, they have a system that has been working for them for a hundred years, why would they want that to change?
But the fact is that this is a New Age, and the doctrines of the old world do not work here. Businesses see people sharing their Intellectual properties, whether that be a song, an article, or a picture online and they get scared. To them, we are stealing their digital product that we should have paid for, but what they don’t see are the millions of people who are now seeing what these companies and individuals have to offer and are sharing it with millions of other people.
“Piracy” is the biggest form of Consumerism, people are downloading, sharing and consuming content they would have never found if it weren’t free and available Online. Artists and Creators are getting exposure on a scale never known before the World Wide Web. EMBRACE THIS CHANGE!
Here’s A Short 1 Minute Meme on the question of copyright and today’s internet age.
” Copying is not theft.
Stealing a thing leaves one less left,
Copying it makes one thing more;
that’s what copying’s for.
Copying is not theft.
If I copy yours you have it too
One for me and one for you
That’s what copies can do
If I steal your bicycle you have to take the bus,
but if I just copy it there’s one for each of us!
Making more of a thing,
that is what we call “copying”
Sharing ideas with everyone
That’s why copying is FUN! ”
