An American scientist named Robert Lanza has taken a leap of faith by claiming that death is not a "terminal" event.
According to Lanza, Death is utterly incapable of stalking its victims throughout an "infinite number" of universes.
"Death does not exist in any real sense in these scenarios. All possible universes exist simultaneously, regardless of what happens in any of them," Lanza hypothesized in a Huffington Post article.
"Although individual bodies are destined to self-destruct, the alive feeling - the 'Who am I?'- is just a 20-watt fountain of energy operating in the brain. But this energy doesn't go away at death. One of the surest axioms of science is that energy never dies; it can neither be created nor destroyed."
Lanza - who refers to his theory as Biocentrism - also postulates that space and time cannot be defined as "hard objects."
"Wave your hand through the air - if you take everything away, what's left? Nothing. The same thing applies for time. You can't see anything through the bone that surrounds your brain," wrote Lanza.
"Everything you see and experience right now is a whirl of information occurring in your mind. Space and time are simply the tools for putting everything together. Immortality doesn't mean a perpetual existence in time without end, but rather resides outside of time altogether."
