Albert Einstein once said “Now Besso has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us … know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion,” speaking of his friend that passed. He was alluding to the idea that death is just an illusion.
One of the biggest existential questions haunting the mind of scientists and the average person alike since the beginning of time is what happens after death. Over time as technology evolves so have our answers. There is still an infinite number of possible answers but one of the latest studies says it’s because death doesn’t exist.
An Endless Number of Universes
According to Robert Lanza, M.D, death is actually a door to an endless number of universes. That means that just as you live your life right now, another version of you lives its life and makes different decisions that alter its outcome. So whatever regret you have in this life or opportunity you long for, it’s likely happening in some universe.
Lanza asserts that anything that possibly can happen is happening in some universe. Every single possible outcome plays out in one of the endless universes. For that reason, he concludes that death can’t exist in these scenarios since they’re all happening at the same time. If your brain hurts, bare with us.
