Interesting series of thoughts from famous scientists, for example:
German physicist, executive Director of the Max Planck Institute for Physics and Astrophysics in Munich for several times.
You are 78 years old. Do you believe in for afterlife? Is there existence after death?
Professor Dürr: “That is an interesting question. What we consider the here and now, this world, it is actually just the material level that is comprehensible. The beyond is an infinite reality that is much bigger. Which this world is rooted in. In this way, our lifes in this plane of existence are encompassed, surrounded, by the afterworld already. When planning I imagine that I have written my existence in this world on a sort of hard drive on the tangible (the brain), that I have also transferred this data onto the spiritual quantum field, then I could say that when I die, I do not lose this information, this conscioiusness. The body dies but the spiritual quantum field continues. In this way, I am immortal. “ – (P.M. Magazin 05/2007)
What’s most interesting is how many great physicists had a mystical bent, contrary to what we’d mostly hear from the current science blogs.
