Was There a Soul Before the Max Planck Institute?

It has apparently taken a doubtless extravagantly funded study at Munich's prestigious Max Planck Institutes to come up with a bold, new, groundbreaking theory: that human beings might actually have some sort of soul-like thingie called "quantum information" in "sub-atomic tubules" that kind of maybe might actually continue to exist somewhere out in some non-specific place out in the ether after we die. Or something.

As Alice says about the "State of Infinite Perfection" postulated before the Big Bang Theory, somehow I'll bet that doesn't involve anything that spells "dog" backwards. 

It is extraordinarily depressing to conclude that Mankind has arrived at a stage of development that a concept that people have taken as an article of faith for several millennia has suddenly been transformed from the basis for numerous religions throughout  recorded history into an "eerie theory" worthy of a press release and a research grant.

From yesterday's issue of that respected journal of scientific knowledge, the UK tabloid The Sun:
Scientists have claimed that death may not be as final as we once feared – and that humans have souls that can leave the body after their hosts kick the bucket.
It may sound like a supernatural myth, but the idea that human consciousness lives on after death has been put forward by a number of well-respected scientists.
And the British scientist at the forefront of the eerie theory claims that humans have souls which don't die along with the body.
We may not know exactly what consciousness is, but physicist Sir Roger Penrose believes that it's just a packet of information stored at a quantum - or sub-atomic - level.
Sensationally, he claims to have found evidence that this information, which is stored in microtubules within human cells, leaves the body after a person dies.
Sir Roger has argued that when a person dies temporarily, this quantum information is released into the universe, only to return to the body's cells if the host is brought back to life.
He argues that this explains why people can have near-death experiences, and believes that this quantum information amounts to a soul leaving the body.The physics expert said: "If the patient dies, it's possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul."
And Sir Roger is not alone in believing this, since his theory is backed by researchers at the renowned Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich.Experts there argue that our physical universe is just a perception, and that once our bodies die there is an infinite life beyond.

  1. "Was there a Soul before the Max Planck Institute?" Answer: Yes.

    For many years, the class masters of the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC (and a few similar or kindred organizations) have warned their Neophytes of a place in their studies where they would see the material science community attempting to catch up with what they already knew to be true. The Neophytes are further taught to be humble and discreet when this occurs.
