The Soul in Science

 

Is there a universal consciousness? Is the soul real? Some scientists think so. Morgan Freeman narrates an interesting series of 2 minute snippets that describe scientific explorations of the soul.

To summarize: In 1996, renowned physicist Roger Penrose and anesthesiologist/professor Stuart Hameroff proposed a theory that quantum manipulations in microtubules, which are contained in neurons of our brains, may be responsible for consciousness – the part of ourselves that we call our soul. Furthermore, this process may continue beyond the death and disintegration of our bodies.

Watch it for yourself here. And let me  know your thoughts…
