Physics of the Soul – PHI 512


A new physics of the soul is presented, based on quantum physics and the primacy
of consciousness, of survival and the immortality of the human spirit. All
religions believe in life after death and many religions believe in reincarnation.
Are life after death and reincarnation scientific? Both experimental data and new
theory development on the subject are examined.




This course is divided into ten, one-hour sessions. The introductory session,
What Happens After Death? is presented in both audio and video format to better
acquaint the student with the instructor.

Session 1 — What Happens After Death?
Session 2 — L ife and Death and Quantum Physics
Session 3 — Quantum Nonlocality
Session 4– Quantum Nonlocality and Reincarnational Data
Session 5 — The Subtle Body and the Quantum Monad
Session 6 — Channeling, Angels, and Societal Issues
Session 7 — The Tibetan Book of the Dead: How Relevant Is It?
Session 8 — Survival, Reincarnation, and Societal Issues
Session 9 — Karma, Dharma and Death Yoga
Session 10 — The Question of Immortality


Outcome 1: Students will be able to list key issues and related data
consistent with course content on the topics of death, survival and rebirth.

Outcome 2: Students will be able to identify and distinguish between the basic
concepts and world-views produced by classical physics, as opposed to quantum
physics, and how they influence our thinking on the topics of death, survival and rebirth.

Outcome 3: Students will be able to identify key concepts, contrasting views,
and findings of experiments regarding quantum nonlocality in space and time.

Outcome 4: Students will be able to produce written work using the terms:
God, Consciousness, soul, and determinism, based on definitions that are
consistent with the world-view presented in this course.

Outcome 5: Students will be able to recognize and describe the
esoteric concepts of gross, subtle and causal bodies.

Outcome 6: Students will be able to articulate the fundamental
theoretical problems of transfiguration and the quantum solution.

Outcome 7: Students will be able to describe the “Bardo”
which comes from the Tibetan Book of the Dead.

Outcome 8: Students will be able to describe how a “physics of the soul”
helps with practical questions of ethics, karma, and causality.

Outcome 9: Students will be able to describe their experiences resulting
from engaging in some of the practices of death yoga experientially.

Outcome 10: Students will be able to articulate the concepts of immortality and
resurrection and how they might apply in a personal way
