defining.. (for everyone)

Electrons, protons, and neutrons bind the universe. Electrical charges are surrounded by magnetic fields, and magnetic fields can produce electric charges. Together, charges and fields create electromagnetic energy.. the essential hybrid of their interaction. Therefore our bodies are both surrounded and permeated by electromagnetic energy. Scientists can monitor and measure such energy with sensitive instruments like Josephson junctions and SQUIDs.

Do you believe this helps define (scientifically) that beyond our basic bodily functions, these energies could account for what many believe is our "soul" or "spirit"?

  • From a physics perspective, whether you're alive or dead the atoms and molecules in your body continue to exert magnetic fields whether you're breathing or not. Breathing has nothing to do with the physics of atoms that make up your body, or your table... or anything alive or dead.

  • Your energy field basically follows the contours of your physical body. That means it looks just like you. It is, in essence, a three-dimensional energy mold of your physical form.. aka "etheric body"

    examples of photographic evidence, that help support this theory..

  • We are a soul as far as I know. A sinful one *christian here :)* but God formed our bodies out of the earth and breathed into our nostril the breath of life and man became a living soul. But this might be the scientific explanation, but to me it doesn't explain God away.

  • I'm not trying to explain away any religion.. just seeing if people would look at this and accept that it may help define a spirit. Some people toss evidence like this away because it's from a scientific perspective, rather than using it to help gain evidence toward their beliefs.
