Physicists are saying that according to quantum physics death may be an illusion.
“If you want to tell the whole story of the world, you must say what objects there are in the world, what substances there are, and what properties they have at different times,” Swinburne. “Of course, that will include all the physical objects, all the tables and chairs and planets and atoms. But, of course, that won’t tell the whole story. You will also have to tell the story of conscious life, which is associated with each body.”
I’m thinking professor Swinburne should test his theory by walking in front of a speeding bus. It may change his conceptual understanding of death.
