There are scientists, such as Dr. Brian Greene that are not religious but simply say, “We don’t know.” Others don’t believe in deity but are also not ready to say, “There is no God.” Some of them have suggested perhaps there could be something in everlasting consciousness existence.
In Wikipedia we read the quantum mind or quantum consciousness posits that quantum-mechanical phenomena, such as entanglement and superposition, may play an important part in the brain’s function and could explain consciousness.
Excerpt from the novel Marty’s Dark Matter:
After she left her physical body, Marty was immediately traveling through what she was sure was a wormhole described by science. She moved at a great speed, which had to be the “quickened” spoken of in the scriptures. Marty wore her favorite outfit but could tell it was not made of material but purer mass. She had always wished it could be slightly lighter green, and just that thought changed her ensemble to the more pleasing color.
Our minds are amazing. Our minds are aware that we exist and know we will eventually physically die. This awareness may be an eternal thing. We also know that few things can travel faster than light, one of which is the Big Bang, and another is quantum entanglement. According to Einstein we cannot travel or think faster than the speed of light, at least as physical entities. But what if we do not understand all of the law. Such as when we look back at the spark of the Big Bang when the laws of physics or physical understanding breaks down. Also the quantum entanglement seems to be in a different higher set of laws and speed limit.
We read in Doctrine and Covenants 29:34: “Wherefore, verily I say unto you that all things unto me are spiritual, and not at any time have I given unto you a law which was temporal; neither any man, nor the children of men; neither Adam, your father whom I created.”
I feel this suggests the most elementary of everything is controlled by spiritual law, a law that is likely not bound by the speed of light but can become a part of it. I would call this the speed of thought; much faster than the physical universe speed limit. We have a brain that thinks slower, but maybe a quantum mind with entangled thoughts that excel light in speed. (See post entitled, Read Out of the Best Books, in SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT in this website.)
Our mind or intelligence may be a function of a higher spiritual law. This is a philosophy suggested in the fictional book, Marty’s Dark Matter. To order this novel return to M. Kasey, author, at the top of this post.
