proving the existance of the soul

The Scientific Theory of the Soul
August 13, 2011 by Madhudvisa dasa
originally posted on krishna.org

The Soul Theory opens up a vast field for research and study based on the
scientific method. It opens up the areas of past-life-recall and out-of-body
experiences to rigorous scientific research and it also enables science to study
all manner of previously unexplained phoneme from a new angle.

THE SCIENTIFIC THEORY OF THE SOUL

INTRODUCTION
The intention of this paper is to put forward a scientific theory stated according to the currently accepted “scientific method” which provides a verifiable and falsifiable theory establishing the existence of an eternal spiritual particle present within every living entity. The symptom of the presence of the soul in a body is consciousness. This scientific theory makes predictions and can be tested experimentally.

DEFINITION OF THE “SOUL THEORY”
The “soul” is defined as a non-material, eternal spiritual entity present within any living being. The symptom of the presence of the soul within a body is consciousness. The soul continues to exist after the destruction of the body and it existed prior to the creation of the body. The material body develops, changes and produces by-products [offspring] because of the presence of the soul within. The material body deteriorates in due cause of time and when it is no longer a suitable residence for the soul it is forced to leave the body. This we call death.

IS THE “SOUL THEORY” RELIGIOUS
The “Soul Theory” stands completely on its own. It says nothing about the existence or nonexistent of God. Although most religious people accept the concept of something other than matter that continues to exist after death and caries the person on to another life there are also atheists who accept such an entity exists. In India there are both theistic and atheistic philosophies accepting the presence of the soul. It is a compelling and convincing explanation of many things we experience.

THE “SOUL THEORY” EXPLAINED
There exists, within this material universe, three types of energy: gross material, subtle material and spiritual. The gross material energy consists of earth, water, fire, air and ether [defined as the “space” within the universe]. The subtle material energy consists of mind, intelligence and false-ego [defined as the identification of the body as the self]. The spiritual energy consists of the soul [the individual living entities] and the supersoul

The presence of the soul in any living entity is indicated by consciousness. Although we cannot actually see the soul, we can see its symptoms. We cannot “see” electricity but when we see an illuminated light-globe we can see the symptom of the presence of electricity. Similarly when we see consciousness we see the symptom of the soul.

Any material body inhabited by a soul will undergo changes. It will be created, it will grow, it will produce by-products [offspring], it will dwindle and ultimately it will die.

DEFINITIONS OF TERMS USED
The Soul:
A spiritual particle present within any living entity whose presence causes the entire body to be pervaded by consciousness, the symptom of the soul. The soul is eternal, it has no birth and it never dies. The soul is the “person within the body”, or “the ghost in the machine”. At the time of “death” the soul leaves the body and is transferred to the womb of it’s next mother’s womb according to it’s accumulated “karma”.

Any material body inhabited by a soul will undergo changes. It will be created, it will grow, it will produce by-products [offspring], it will dwindle and ultimately it will die.

Karma:
Karma means literally “actions”. It is described by the physical law that each action has an equal and opposite reaction. This universal law is not limited to physical actions, it works for any action. If we commit violence against another the reactions generated and we must experience violence upon ourselves in the future. This “karma” or the reactions to our actions is not immediate. The karma is stored in our hearts and it will mature and fructify in due course. If at the time of death there are still karmic reactions stored within the heart which we have not yet experienced then we have to take birth again in the material world in a body suitable to enjoy and suffer the stored karma.

Ether:
The space within the universe.

False-Ego:
The “ego” is the identity of the soul. In reality the soul is a spiritual person possessing an eternal spiritual body full of knowledge and ever increasing bliss. However, because of misusing their independence the souls in the material world misidentify with the material body. They think, “I am an American man”, or “I am an Australian women”. But such identification is false. We are only temporarily in a particular body. It is for seventy or eight years only, then we have to change bodies again. Our next body may be completely different. There is no guarantee someone who now has an “American” body will be again born as an American. There is not even a guarantee of birth in the human form. One can take birth in any species of life. So this identification with the material body is “false ego”.

EXISTENCE PROOF
Life or consciousness is the symptom of the soul. There is no other explanation of consciousness available. No one has been able to show life, consciousness can be generated from matter. And there are many inconsistencies which cannot be explained within the present framework, without considering the existence of the soul. Although there are very clear indications that valid scientific data could be collected on areas such as out-of-body experiences and past-life-recall because the current scientific theories don’t accommodate the possibility these things could exist there has been very little real scientific study in these areas.

There is a large body of data relating to out-of-body experiences. Currently science cannot relate to or study this body of evidence as the current scientific view cannot accommodate the possibility of a “person” being able to leave their body and observe what is happening to their body from a different perspective. A large body of evidence is certainly there and it requires scientific study and the “Soul Theory” will enable this. Unless there are two separate entities, the body and the soul, out-of-body experiences would be impossible. But it seems they are not. This is compelling proof of the existence of the soul.

There are many verifiable accounts of “past life experiences”. This is another area currently outside the boundaries of science but it could be studied in terms of the “Soul Theory”. If there was no soul, no entity that continued from one life to the next, there could be no memory of “past lives”. Another strong proof of the existence of the soul.

EXPERIMENTAL PROOF FOR THE “SOUL THEORY”
The “Soul Theory” makes many predictions that can be experimentally tested and also one can propose experiments which, if successfully carried out, could disprove it. So it is a theory suitable fro study using the currently accepted “scientific method”.

■Predicts out of body experiences are possible
■Predicts past life recollection is possible
■Predicts “unembodied” souls are possible
■Predicts life cannot be produced from a combination of chemicals

“Unless there is a soul present within matter it will not go through the cycle of birth, growth, production of by-products, dwindling and death. This cycle is a symptom of the presence of the soul. The soul is placed within matter by other living entities and then develops.”

Proof: Analytically study all living entities and confirm that all living entities are caused, or born from “parents”, other living entities.

Falsify: Show life can be created from matter only [a chemical mixture of earth, water, fire, air and ether.] Then show the resulting combination of matter can exhibit the symptoms of life [growth, changing, production of by-products dwindling and vanishing.]

“The soul is placed within matter by another living entity then a material body is developed around the soul from matter.”

Proof: Analytically study living entities to confirm their source is another living entity.

Falsify: Show living entities can be produced by a combination of chemicals. The resulting living entities must be able to exhibit the symptoms of the presence of the soul, ie: consciousness, and undergo the transformations of growth, change, production of by-products [offspring], dwindling and death.

future
The “Soul Theory” opens up a vast field for research and study based on the scientific method. It opens up the areas of past-life-recall and out-of-body experiences to rigorous scientific research and it also enables science to study all manner of previously unexplained phoneme from a new angle.

REFERENCES
The science of the soul is described in the Bhagavad-gita, the timeless jewel from the Indian Vedic texts. A full understanding can be gained from this source.

Extensive data and documentation is available in the areas of past-life-recall and out-of-body experiences which could form the basis of much scientific research work. The “Soul Theory” will also enable many rigorous scientific studies to be carried out in this area to produce more conclusive data and clarify the interactions of the soul and matter.

Ascension symptoms

These symptoms seem to be quite accurate, but remember everyones differant, and you may feel differantly about the “symptoms” of enlightenment…

Because of the vibrations becoming higher and higher here on earth our bodies and minds are changing and adjusting to this, and this can be uncomfortable and can even be painful at times. Be gentle with yourself and give your body and mind lots of rest. Stay as stress free as possible.

Ringing in the ears and Seeing geometric shapes and colors when your eyes are closed:

I feel these are in rank downloads transferred by light and sound. These help you learn about the new peaceful patterns and structures that may be useful while the ancient structures fall.

It’s a way of keeping you balanced through the ascension process.
Peaks and Valleys:

When you are in the natural flow you may feel fantastic for a period of time and then crash and feel mentally and physically messy for a period of time. I feel this is helping us acclimate to the new higher vibrations. The higher vibrations come in waves so we get used to residing in them and when they fall away we know what we need to let go of. It’s nearly like a forced purging at first. As you go on and relax and trust the process it gets simpler. The road evens out and the peaks and valleys are not as extreme. Your life becomes more and more unforced.

Physical and Mental Pain:

As your body and mind let go or are purged of the lower vibrating structures you may experience mental and physical pain. The more you hold on to these lower vibrations and the more you fight with the higher vibrations chances are the more pain you will experience. If you realize you are going through this allow yourself to surrender to the process and realize it is a process. If you are feeling terrible it will not last forever and once it’s released you will see the next plateau.

Needing Lots of Sleep:

My advice is… Sleep! The process can take a toll on your physical body so rest as much as you can and do not feel guilty about it. It’s exactly what you need and should do at that time. Your body knows. Listen to it.

Divine Timing 11:11, 12:12, 1:11, 2:22….

This tells me that we are always here now. It’s a reminder if you allow yourself to flow in the natural/spiritual direction without fight you will always remain in divine timing.

Feeling Weak:

Your body may feel very weak and frail and at the same time you can feel it repairing itself, being rewired and healing. The best thing to do is rest and allow the alchemy to occur.

Food Cravings:

Food is not to be judged. If you are craving all junk food then eat junk food. If your body wants all fruits and veggies then eat them. Listen to your body and intuition and you will know how much to eat, what to eat and when to eat it. Be prepared for the cravings to change dramatically. Reckon of yourself as being pregnant and you are giving birth to right self. Treat yourself kindly through the process.

The Ascension is about self empowerment and your enlightenment.

Quarantine:

It may feel like you are all alone and not allowed to speak to or see your friends and family at times. This can last a while and it can come and go. I feel this is because you need to balance your vibration and have to disconnect to outside sources for help. You need to become self reliant and self referring and this is one way it seems the natural flow allows you to do this. At first you may kick and scream but I say relax into the silence and your alone time. You will get through these phases much simpler than trying to change them. Also do not take this personal. Your friends and family still like you and are there for you. It’s not about them. This is a part of your process.

Not Listening to Music and the Radio and Not Watching TV:

You may find yourself driving your car or walking through the park in silence as opposed to listening to you mp3 player or radio. You may have already gotten rid of cable or your TV. Being by yourself and being silent helps you balance, rest in and get used to your own vibration. As you get used to our vibration you will start to feel how other people may be seemingly draining you of energy. The truth is you are allowing your energy to be affected. No one can truly drain your energy. Only you can allow this to happen. You will learn a lot about how different vibrations of different people and events effect you in different ways the more you become silent. By resting and meditating in silence it helps you keep this silence that is you even in the midst of chaos.

Getting Rid of a Lot of or All of Your Stuff:

As your mind is becoming more spacious it seems the background you live in needs to become more open and spacious. I know a lot of people who are going through the ascension process and a lot of them including me donated most of their material things. It felt really excellent but I do have to warn you… Get rid of what you don’t need and use but don’t be worried to keep some things you may want to keep. I don’t regret getting rid of my things but there were a few times I could have really used some of the items again. The material items are not terrible and are not the problem. It’s our attachment to them that is the problem. That’s something you may want to keep in mind if you haven’t gone through this part of the process yet. Not saying you will and if you did already, sorry! I wish you and I read this earlier! Ha Ha!

Synchronicity and Intuition:

Synchronicity and déjà vu can happen quite often in higher vibrations and it seems many more people are experiencing them because they are more available as we and earth ascend. Intuition is also more available and will guide you much better than your thinking. Intuition may be experienced as a knowing, a whispering voice, or a pulling in a certain direction and it usually feels like it is not from “you”. That’s because intuition is not from your ego. Intuition really is from the right you and it can take some time to learn to listen to and trust the right you as opposed to your ego. This is because right through most of our lives most of us only listened to our ego and feared our intuition. You can see why the ascension process may be hard to navigate at first. A lot of us have to completely change direction, throw away everything we knew and trusted and rewire and rebuild a new navigation system.

The Ascension is about self empowerment and your enlightenment.

Dread

Dread is a lower vibrating habit that a lot of people are AFRAID to let go of. Dread of allowing dread to drop away because of the dread of what may be on the other side of dread. That’s a lot of dread!!! You can see the dread catalysts being presented to us and we can choose to learn from these catalysts and go in the natural flow or disregard the lesson and keep blindly walking through catalyst after catalyst. It’s like being constantly punched in the face and always being surprised and hit in the face by the first. Ultimately you will see the fist. Most people are worried to stop and look at the fist and see not only can you go around it, it doesn’t really exist!

Look at our economy collapsing. This is affecting a lot of people first hand and they are now worried they are going to loose their money. How did this situation happen to start with? All along you could see people in other countries were being killed and exploited so we could get cheap materials. Is it a surprise that a system of greed can not last? Should it last? There are horrible wars going on, people are starving all around the world and we are worried that our money won’t be as valuable as it once was. When you are aware you see the larger picture. You not only want things to change, you know they will. You welcome the change with no dread even if this change will affect you in order to make things better for all.

I see more and more people becoming worried of regime and fearing different conspiracy theories like the New World Order. I’m not saying these conspiracy theories are not right on some level. Then again I’m not saying they are. What I will say is if you are worried you are directly feeding the thing you are fearing. If you there is a conspiracy and you are worried of it you are giving it power to continue. If you are aware that this conspiracy theory is or may be right but have no dread of it then this changes everything. You do not add any power to it and your own vibration will help to dismantle this lower vibrating structure. You will also be able to speak freely and clearly about it to others.

Communicating the conspiracy theory with no dread of it and helping others see it clearly with no dread and adding no power to the conspiracy. As the others awaken to the conspiracy with no dread they will also not accept this lower vibrating structure and start to vibrate higher themselves taking more power away from the conspiracy theory/lower vibrating structure. The more of us who are aware, awake and not worried the more peace, equality and freedom we will experience here on earth. You can not fight dread. You can become aware of your dread. Being aware of your fears allows you to stop feeding them. Without food your fears die.

Letting Go of Spiritual Practices and Bits and pieces

One thing I have found with the ascension is constant change (Universal Law #4). This means letting go of anything and everything when the time comes for it to drop away. One thing that is hard for people who are on the spiritual “path” is letting go of parts of their practice and their spiritual material things like crystals. I thought I would be doing Kundalini Yoga all of my life but my practice became so intense and painful and I had to let go of it. I had enough spiritual energy flowing through my body already. The Kundalini Yoga was much more than I could handle. It served it purpose for many years but there cam a time for it to stop.

The Ascension is about self empowerment and your enlightenment.

All spiritual practices have their purpose and serve as tools to help us get into the natural flow. Once we get in the flow you can let go of any and all practices. I do very soft yoga and meditate. Those are my “practices”. I do not pray or chant. I keep my practice more silent and receptive. I’m not saying this is the right way. This is what works for me right now and this can change tomorrow. If chanting mantras feels right for you right now do it. Whatever feels right for you is right. Just don’t be attached to any practice to the point of not letting go of it if it becomes useless or even uncomfortable to you. Items like crystals are fantastic and serve their purpose as well but again once you start to become balanced and are in the flow crystals may really knock you off balance a bit.

Spiritual practices and crystals make imbalances to knock you back into the natural/spiritual flow. Once you are in the natural flow you will see how these tools also can confuse and disorient you, especially when you first enter no man’s land or just start to flow in the natural flow. Once you are in the flow for a while you may feel some bumps but for the most part the confusion starts to turn into clarity. One of the reasons it’s hard for people to let go of spiritual practices and items is because they will have blissful experiences and associate these experiences with objects and events which makes confusion. They reckon the crystal or practice gave them this experience.

The experience happened because the tools worked and it was time to experience that experience. Trying to chase or hold onto an experience like bliss is a major spiritual trap. People start to reckon wow that was it! This tool and that bliss was it and now I have to get more of that. By doing this you are stopping your potential for ascension and growth because you are now out of the natural flow and chasing an experience. Experiences come and go and change. They are not to be held onto. This makes suffering. This also starts people to worship tools.

Worshipping

The ascension is about self empowerment and your enlightenment. It’s not about worshipping an outside source. You are the outside source. You are the inside source. All you need to do is be. It’s not to say you can’t delight in reading religious works or even praying if that’s what you like to do. I feel at some point worshipping will start to work against your growth. Worshipping is a tool and many people need this tool to teach them something but if you feel you are finished with this tool I suggest drop it. You can always pick it up again at a later point if you feel you need to. Try not worshipping for a week or two and see what happens. This is a tough one for most people because we’ve been taught to dread God. Well, here’s one for you. God is everything. You are a part of everything. God does not have an ego and does not need to be worshipped. God is you. You may not know it yet but it’s right.

The Secret About Affirmations

Affirmations are fine but I wouldn’t expect much of them. I reckon they are a excellent step in the right direction for a lot of people but if you say you are fantastic but inside feel like a piece of crap you will still produce crap for the most part. It’s a excellent start though. I suggest you become empty and clear and then you have a chance of producing something of value. If you truly believe something and you have no deeper contradictory thoughts to nullify your belief then the belief can be powerful. The Ascension is about self empowerment and your enlightenment.
