What Happens When You Die? Evidence Suggests Time Simply Reboots

Robert Lanza, M.D., theorizes at Huffington Post:

What happens when we die? Do we rot into the ground, or do we go to heaven (or hell, if we’ve been bad)? Experiments suggest the answer is simpler than anyone thought. Without the glue of consciousness, time essentially reboots.

The mystery of life and death can’t be examined by visiting the Galapagos or looking through a microscope. It lies deeper. It involves our very selves. We wake and find ourselves in the present. There are stairs below us, which we seem to have climbed; there are stairs above us, which go upward into the unknown future. But the mind stands at the door by which we entered and gives us the memories by which we go about our day. Everything is ordered and predictable. We’re like cuckoo birds who appear through a door each morning. We fancy there’s a clockwork set in motion at the beginning of time.

But if you remove everything from space, what’s left? Nothing. The same applies for time — you can’t put it in a jar. You can’t see through the bone surrounding your brain (everything you experience is information in your mind). Biocentrism tells us space and time aren’t objects — they’re the mind’s tools for putting everything together.

I was a young boy when I realized there was something unexplainable about life that I simply didn’t understand. I learned this from one of the last smiths in New England, when I, as a child, tried to capture a woodchuck on his property.

Over his shop a chimney cap went round and round, squeak, squeak, rattle, rattle. One day the blacksmith came out with his shotgun and blew it off. The noise stopped. Mr. O’Donnell pounded metal on his anvil all day. No, I thought, I didn’t want to be caught by him. Yet, I had my purpose…

    This is interesting, but I've got to say. Talking about death without referencing near death experiences:

    http://www.iands.org/nde_archives/near-death_ex

    is super fucking irresponsible and un “scientific”. It blows my mind the lengths people go to pretend there is no value in these, even though they are always psychologically tranformative in the individual and occur even in cases where the experiencer is legally brain dead. Science is now telling us that because of physics, time and space vary upon the observer, conveniently ignoring that this is what mystics/shamans/sorcerers have been telling us for thousands of years, based on internal exploration. How long can science pretend these avenues of inquiry are pointless or moreover “not real” because they are based on subjective states of consciousness? What's the simplest way to alleviate people's fear of death? Psychedelic mushrooms (which are illegal by the way):

    This is how religion is killing us. Take note neo-atheists.

      thank you. How we simply disregard the witness testimony of adults and children who experience this sort of thing with a wave of the hand is beyond me.

    That was a terrible article with no evidence other than intuitive pokes at Einstein, Newton, and some old blacksmith's shed. So what if shamans and mystics have been claiming this for a thousand years before wet-rice farming–that doesn't mean they or the Doctor are right. Indexing life-after-death, even through relativity, is so utterly boring. Only facing death as the absolute end of your consciousness and existence makes the potential for living interesting.

      Eternal return makes it even more interesting than your claim that you posess infinite knowledge. If you are doomed to return and commit the same act over and over again what are you going to do next? now that is something to think about.

        He didn't claim he had infinite knowledge.

    This is not simple enough for a child of 11 or 12 to understand. Make it more approachable to a wider audience. Not good. Didnt get a thing.
