A simple "airbag" theory of Life After Death

 

I am a 78 year old physicist (MS 1967) and wish to
present my discovery wch I claim is the world’s first,
and only, simple, scientific explanation of the
phenomenon of Life After Death:

A simple “airbag” theory of Life After Death

This presentation is only 713 words long and is
illustrated to enable easy comprehension
Since most readers are not graduate physicists the
first question you might have is “What do your qualified
scientific peers think about this?”.
Fortunately I have been able to obtain the opinion
of the world’s leading authority on microtubule-brain
research and I include here an email I received from
Prof. Stuart Hameroff:

Dear George Hammond:
I believe downloading and Afterlife are possible.
Stuart Hameroff

Stuart Hameroff and Sir Roger Penrose are world
famous for their publication of a microtubule theory
of consciousness in the Philosophical Transactions
of the Royal Society, so we have here the opinion of
virtually the world’s leading authority on the subject
that, yes, the theory is “possible”, in his professional
opinion!
For those of you who would like to investigate the
matter further, I have written several papers on the
subject wch are posted on my academia.edu website,
along with my CV, located at:
https://independent.academia.edu/GeorgeHammond
Sincerely yours,
George E. Hammond MS physics Cape Cod MA USA

Well, within a matter of hours 50 messages were in my email inbox
and hundreds of people had hit my website to read about this
“airbag” theory:

 

It turns out that the human brain, in the microtubule system inside the
neurons of the brain has a built-in “airbag” that goes off just before
the moment of human death!

Because it operates at the frequency of
near ultraviolet light (10^15 Hz) which is a TRILLION times faster than
neuronal firing frequency, it can send you to Heaven for say 3 years by
reading out an all 5 senses afterlife dream in less than a microsecond,
even as short as a nano second worst case! It is so fast it can beat
any form of death, even a lightning bolt, just like an automobile airbag
is faster than any form of automobile collision!

So, it appears that “God” invented the concept of the “airbag” billions
of years before General Motors did! And it appears quite possible, that
there is such a thing is a literal life after death!

I reckon that’s that about that.

Well there’s the little matter of Evolution being the great inventor of life and innovations. But why quibble on such a beautiful morning.

Okay, like the detective who’s about the leave, when another question comes to mind.

I’m trying to imagine the mechanism, microtubules at about 25 nanometers, would use to compress and collect air, while inhabiting the brain, which to the best of my knowledge does not have pockets of air packed away in its structure.

June 5, 2018 New mechanisms discovered to separate air molecules by Shinshu University

https://phys.org/news/2018-06-mechanisms-air.html


just a little diversion there.

Scientists from Shinshu University and PSL University, France, theoretically proved the concerted motion of the nanowindow rim to selectively allow molecules to pass in a fast, energy-efficient way. This brings up new possibilities to create an advanced molecular separation membrane technology.
Thanks to spending time with Hoffman, the concept of theoretical proof, has been dangled in front of me plenty lately.

Though I’m still not sure that “theoretical proof” should be acceptable as “proof”.

Why not stick with “proof of concept” - seems a little more straightforward.

But why quibble on such a beautiful morning?

Why not Columbo? Why not?

The microtubules are full of water not air! The ultraviolet light,
which originates in a 5D electronic orbital transition of the water
molecules, travels losslessly through the water by a process called
“superradiance” (discovered by Dickie at Princeton in 1957) and
studied heavily ever since. The most recent treatment of the problem
of super radiance in microtubules is given in a 1993 paper published
by: Jibu, Hagan, Hameroff, Pribrame, and Yasue:

The brain as you know is 98% water, not air

Best regards, and I can’t thank you enough for responding to my
post, and look forward to talking to you in the future.
George E Hammond!

Hello Lausten, 1/5/21

You said in your post to this thread:

“Why not Colombo, why not?”

[GE Hammond]
I agree with you completely Lauston, what this “airbag” theory
needs is a detective with the personality of “Colombo”. Someone who
just won’t let the issue go until he got to the rock bottom of it!

Citizenschallenge-V.3 sounds like he knows just enough science and technology to sniff
out the truth about a simple straight forward theory like this!

This appears to me to be a precipitous and unjustified criticism of my post wch is clearly of material germane to general inquiries on CF I forums. I must protest! GE Hammond

I’ve been reading it with interest.

… just saying.

Because it operates at the frequency of near ultraviolet light (10^15 Hz) which is a TRILLION times faster than neuronal firing frequency, it can send you to Heaven for say 3 years by reading out an all 5 senses afterlife dream in less than a microsecond, even as short as a nano second worst case! It is so fast it can beat any form of death, even a lightning bolt, just like an automobile airbag is faster than any form of automobile collision!
So what you are saying is that the "Airbag" (water bag) is firing the neurons so fast that you could perceive the experiences of 3 years within a microsecond before death? And this would be the "life after death" experiences of those who have been resuscitated?

This appears to me to be a precipitous and unjustified criticism

[GE Hammond]
That’s close to correct but not entirely accurate in the
details.
The microtubule system resides inside the neurons but it
operates on ultraviolet light 10-trillion times faster than neuronal
(EEG) firing frequency.
When we are alive, consciousness is produced by the neuronal
EEG firing system. But at death (EEG flatline) our consciousness
drops to the microtubule level. In other words, the neuronal system
is the living observer while the microtubule system becomes the
“dying observer”.
In a nocturnal dream the neuronal system is the observer and sees
the action take place in real time. But after EEG flatline the microtubule
system takes over consciousness and runs 10 trillion times faster
then the EEG. So in order to maintain the appearance of “real time”
in a microtubule dream the dream input would have to be 10 trillion
times as fast as the dream input is in a nocturnal dream, in order to
maintain the appearance of ordinary worldly time in the dream.
Okay, 3 years divided by 10 trillion comes out to be about 10 µs.
Which means, that the term “afterlife” is actually a misnomer, the
whole thing, 10 µs of objectively, or 3 years subjectively, takes place
according to the bedside observer in only 10 µs, but the dying person
experiences 3 years in Heaven, subjectively (his wristwatch time in
heaven).
Okay, so much as intuitively obvious to a career physicist, but
I wouldn’t want you to simply take it on my opinion. In the original
target post you will notice that Stuart Hameroff in his email to me sent
a CC to Prof. Frank Tipler at Tulane University. Frank Tipler is a
world-famous physicist in his own right and in 1995 he published
an astounding book entitled “The Physics of Immortality”. This was
a couple of years before Stuart Hameroff and Sir Roger Penrose made
the front pages with their Royal Society publication of how the
microtubule system in the brain was a gigantic quantum computer.
So Frank speculated on whether or not it would be possible to build
an astronomically sized computer that could “resurrect everybody
from the dead”. Little did he know that Hameroff and Penrose had
already discovered that that’s exactly what the human brain does!
Anyway, in Tipler’s nearly science fiction book (which became a best
seller by the way), he mentions the matter of the “speed” of the
computer necessary for such a job. And on page 52, paragraph 1,
he says:

“… the (computer) emulation can be carried out at any speed one
pleases relative to universal time.”

So here he has confirmed the correctness of the explanation that
I’ve given above, and is in fact of computer science known to all
professional physicists
The bottom line is, that the “afterlife” so called, actually takes place
in a split second instant just before the moment of death, just like a car
airbag goes off in a split second before you hit the dashboard, thus
saving your life.

Dear Lausten, 1/5/21

I Scrupulously read every single word of the rules before I posted
anything to the conversation board.
Furthermore, CSI states that "its mission is:

CFI Our Mission
The Center for Inquiry strives to foster a secular society based on
reason, science, freedom of inquiry, and humanist values.
The Center for Inquiry (CFI) is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit
organization dedicated to defending science and critical thinking
in examining religion. CFI’s vision is a world in which evidence,
science, and compassion—rather than superstition, pseudoscience,
or prejudice—guide public policy.

 

[GE Hammond]

I certainly live, breathe, and adhere to every single word of CFI’s
mission statement and have believe that very thing since the day
I was born!
I cannot see any evidence that anything I have posted could even
remotely be categorized as “spam”. If this were not a misapprehension

of some sort, I would actually feel insulted !

Sincerely, George E Hammond

And I was kind enough to copy and paste the part that says you should move this to the Issues and Complaints section. So, you're into that part where the police can arrest you for resisting arrest. "Reasonable Suspicion" as they say. This is a test. How well you handle it will determine the next action.

I don’t care if you’re Richard Dawkins. You’re first post was a link that promoted yourself. I have no evidence that you are interested in anything but that.

I was also kind enough to make it a statement/comment, rather than a warning. I could have just shut the whole thing down easily, but since a discussion had already begun, I didn’t just ban you and allowed the discussion to continue. I could have made it an official warning too, but I did not. I would heed Lausten’s advice and take it to the Issues and Complaints section, if you have issues with what I said. Links that advertise or promote are generally spam and not discussion.

Well, I am a great fan of Hameroff/Penrose and ORCH OR and I cannot imagine that they would have endorsed or even entertained your fantasy.

Let me give you a useful link to Anil Seth, who explains that after death, there is NOTHING for that individual, no airbag, no life vest, NOTHING AT ALL!

Well, we leave our legacy behind.

People you interacted with, echos of times you made a difference, memories within the hearts of living people, physical things you had a part in creating, and so on.

Let’s not forget those components of your body, that are always in flux anyways, returns to Earth to be used by other creatures, and so on.

Rippling echos in countless directions.

:wink:

Well, we leave our legacy behind
I agree. Your legacy is the historical "soul" that remains of your life.

I figured you’d agree. Hey, I just saw this, microtubules gets a mention. This time in relation to consciousness, which you’ve brought up before.

@write4u I agree. Your legacy is the historical “soul” that remains of your life.
Being a one time fervent Jesus lover (preteen years, when love came so easily) I can appreciate the mental trials of the transition needed to escape the need to imagine my place in an eternal Heaven waiting for me, and simply accepting there was nothing after dead except for the living who remain.

Within a few years, that emptiness evaporated and the notion of a deep eternal sleep awaiting me became okay, in fact it was comforting as the reality of being stuck in heaven for an eternity started morphing into a terror at the though of being trapped in some else’s fantasy for all of eternity. Yuck. With time I find that my spiritual connection with Earth and her story has grown to be ever so much larger and inwardly fulfilling and down right satisfactory (spiritually and intellectually), than anything Christianity every offered.

It also allowed me to focus on my day to days in a much more connected fashion. As in connected to physical reality and science and the story of Earth’s history and the natural world all around me and my place within it - which has filled me with knowledge and spiritual peace beyond anything a preacher is capable of instilling. Not to mention an acceptance of the idea that my life and I will end someday, so I’d better take advantage of right now, to the best of my abilities. Since I’m a striving sort of guy. Just smelling the roses isn’t the worst thing either for those with less of an appetite for engaging their lives.
