The afterlife theory is supported by Einstein, who claims that the “laws of physical reality” do not apply.
Former Google employee Mo Gawdat predicted the existence of an afterlife, citing Einstein’s theory of relativity to back up his claim that life “does not obey by the norms of the physical world.”
The concept is based on the premise that a vital component of a person’s identity survives death of the physical body. There are numerous hypotheses as to how this might play out, with various religions having their own take on whether it is a spiritual realm or reincarnation. Many assertions are based on witness testimony of near-death experiences, but in his book “Solve For Happy,” Mr Gawdat employed scientific models to explain why he believes life is eternal.
He described how the Big Bang theory claims that the universe began with a single mass in a very high-density state, which subsequently expanded to produce our entire universe and everything in it.
“Quantum and Big Bang theories provide a fascinating question – which existed first?” he wondered. “Do you want to talk about life or the universe that encompasses it?”
“For any single particle to form – including those that make up that first mass, expanding gases, and the original Earth – some kind of life has to watch it into existence,” he explained.
“Unless the laws of physics as we know them did not apply from the Big Bang through the appearance of life in its physical form, life existed before the physical world.”
However, the 53-year-old went on to say that Einstein’s theory of relativity “delivers another mind-bending scientific conclusion” — that time already existed in a four-dimensional structure known as spacetime.
“The relativity of time means that depending on our speed, position, vantage point, and several other aspects, you and I can have quite different concepts of time,” he continued.
“Because there is no ultimate time, we all have varied perspectives of when an event begins and ends.
“You find that life, which spans the continuum of all conceivable observers, came first when you combine quantum, Big Bang, and relativity.”
Life, Mr Gawdat concluded, “does not follow the norms and principles of the physical universe it observed into existence.”
The author added that, according to Einstein’s theory, his son Ali, who died in 2014, was “a slice” of the. “Brinkwire Summary News.”
