Question: What is consciousness in relation to death, what does science say on the subject?
Our consciousness has no death, although some people of course think it does, but this is only because people identify themselves with their body. This body of ours is like a snail
which of course carries around with it a shell. We also carry a shell, its called space & time, and we live by it everyday, but remember consciousness exits outside the constraints of both time and space. Remember also the physical brain is
not the mind as it is only an organ through which the mind operates.
Some modern day scientist’s explain that consciousness resides in the microtubules of the brain
cells, the main sites of quantum processing. Upon death, this information is released from your body, meaning your consciousness goes with it. Some scientist’s as I understand, are pushing through the boundaries of science, working against
assumptions and perceptions that have been fixed. A lot of people hold the idea that when you die; you die; that's it. Death is a moment - you're either dead or alive. All these things are not scientifically valid, but they're social perceptions.
