The Neurophoton Consciousness Theory


Daniel R. Hankins

"Knowledge exists in two forms � lifeless, stored in books, and alive in the consciousness of men.�

--- Albert Einstein, 1949

ABSTRACT: Human consciousness is not a product of the brain. In order to process data carried on photons, the brain serves as a complex transducer converting consciousness from electrical photon energy to electrochemical energy. Human beings process all information, whether abstract or concrete through an extensive nervous system of insulated wiring. Electricity, a form of light energy, conducts consciousness throughout the body and provides animation and emotional response. To differentiate between the natures of the various spectrums of the electromagnetic spectrum, the term neurophoton is used to define those photons capable of interaction with the human physical apparatus. Consciousness in humans is made up of a cohesive field of electromagnetic energy; part of the electromagnetic spectrum and, therefore, must follow all the laws of quantum physics, Special Relativity, and nature.

How old are you? At first you are inclined to recite the day and year of your birth, but that would be misleading. In reality, you are somewhere between 12 and 14 billion years old. You are made up of water and other elements that have been around since the Big Bang. Many of the atoms that you are made of once existed in living dinosaurs. If our planet survives another 12 billion years, the atoms that now spin inside your body will spin inside whatever life form that inhabits the world at that time.

Exploding stars formed most of the oxygen, nitrogen, calcium, nickel, copper, mercury, and etc. that exist on our planet. The calcium in your bones was created from exploding blue-white stars like Sirius. The sky appears blue primarily because of nitrogen, a product of exploding red stars like Betelgeuse in the Orion constellation. All these elements were formed when stars collapsed to the core and then exploded.

Hydrogen, plentiful on earth, is also the most abundant element in the universe. It is the least complex atom in the universe with one proton and one electron. Nature loves simplicity. The point is; you are not new. You did not come from non-being to being: you came from one form of being to become another form of being. But let�s explore further exactly what you are made of.

From a physics point of view, practically speaking, we are actually made of mostly nothing. If you enlarged every atom in your body to the size of your thumbnail and began a journey to reach the next atom, you would have many miles to go before you arrived. Roughly speaking, if every atom was the size of a baseball, each atom would be separated by a distance equal to the distance between New York City and San Francisco. Even so, when asked what we are made of, we would say that we are made up mostly of water. But that is not going deep enough to answer the question from a quantum physics point of view. What is water made of? Water is made of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. But what is hydrogen and oxygen made of? They are made of atoms. What are atoms made of? Basically, they are made of protons, neutrons, and electrons. What are protons made of? A proton is made of two �u� (up) quarks and one �d� (down) quark giving the proton a positive charge. [Up (u) quarks have a +2/3 charge and down (d) quarks have a �1/3 charge.] Neutrons have two �d� quarks and one �u� quark, giving them a net charge of zero. Protons and neutrons make up the heavy nucleus of the atom. The quarks are as far as we can go regarding proton mass in quantum physics without undue speculation. An electron is a lepton. The word �lepton� comes from the Greek language and means �small mass.� The electron is the least massive charged particle of any mass particle. It has a negative charge. Quarks bind together while leptons are solitary. What holds all these quarks together in the protons and neutrons that make up the nucleus? Why don�t they just randomly fly off into space? Gluons, making up �glueballs,� hold the quarks together. IBM scientists Monty Denneau and David George worked for two years nonstop with the world�s fastest computers to calculate the properties of an elusive elementary particle, called a "glueball." This massive calculation, the largest single numerical calculation in the history of computing, is the first instance of a particle's "discovery" by means of a computer. The calculation required more than four hundred million billion arithmetic operations, running uninterrupted for two years. What are these gluons? Theoretically, gluons are without mass and without weight. They fall into the electro-magnetic spectrum thus they are a form of photon light with a velocity of �c�, the speed of light � around 700,000,000 miles per hour (1,120,000,000 kilometers per hour). If you break this information down into the context of our original question then, you could rightly say that your body is mostly light.

Many world religions believe that light is akasha, a Sanskrit word meaning the fundamental substance of the universe. We do not enter the science fiction realm, the metaphysical realm, the religious realm, or the realm of superstition or magic when we say we are primarily �beings of light.� We are very much in the field of investigative, theoretical quantum physics.

We have reached a fundamental understanding of what the human body is, but we are obviously more than our physical body. At death our bodies lie still and lifeless: something is clearly missing � the animation mechanism. That mechanism is something we call consciousness which excites our neuro-system. The time has come in human evolution to address, without bias, the question of the origin, history, makeup, and future of human consciousness. There is a clear prejudice in the world of science to undertake this task. From the skeptical mind of some scientists, this is perilously close to investigating the �soul,� and these scientists fear they will be ostracized by the professional community for exploring that �forbidden field� of science that creeps toward the edge of religious belief or metaphysical phenomenon.

For the purpose of science, we must first admit the existence of consciousness and then we must define consciousness. The Neurophoton Consciousness Theory defines consciousness as the sum total of all knowledge that is retained in the physical body in any medium, in any place, by any means, and in any form, both conscious and subconscious. We further use the word �Neurophoton� to mean photons that are capable of integration into human consciousness.

The existence of consciousness is universally accepted by humanity and science, whether expressed in the terminology of religion or psychology. Long before the philosopher Descartes said, �I think, therefore I am,� the concept of awareness of human existence and individuality was never seriously questioned. Even Eastern religions that declare the physical world an illusion accept that consciousness reincarnates in and out of that illusion.

Because of this very real prejudice in the scientific community towards the serious exploration of the potential of consciousness, scientists have failed to provide adequate research in this field. The nature of consciousness is where conventional science actually leaves the hard rational science it so firmly claims to defend, and ventures into superstition. Conventional science for all practical purposes says that consciousness is the product of the brain � a creation of the human brain � something new with the birth of each individual, and something that ceases to exist with the death of each individual.

This is patently false, unscientific, and will not satisfy the most elementary demands of Special Relativity. Quantum physics accepts the concept of light turning into matter and matter turning into light. That is the science of fission (splitting atoms) and fusion (combining atoms). The explosion of the atomic bomb in 1945 demonstrated the hypothesis that matter can be converted into light energy and in 1997, a team of physicists from the University of Rochester, Princeton University, the University of Tennessee, and Stanford carried out experiments at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center and turned light energy into matter for the first time in human history. They accomplished this by propelling an incredible amount of light energy into a space smaller than the period at the end of this sentence � one billionth of a square centimeter. The amount of light energy used was almost equal to the amount of energy required to power the entire United States of America. Furthermore, they packed this light energy, more than 2 billion billion photons into a sliver of light that lasted one trillionth of a second (one picosecond). Even with these quantities of controlled light energy, the student physicists were unable to produce more than the most elementary particles of mass. Nature performs this same task of turning light energy into mass and mass into light energy almost effortlessly. Isaac Newton, (1642 � 1727) who discovered gravity, said, �Are not gross Bodies and Light convertible into one another, and may not Bodies receive much of their Activity from the particles of Light which enter their Composition? The changing of Bodies into Light, and Light into Bodies, is very conformable to the Course of Nature, which seems delighted with Transmutations?� While quantum physics has always accepted this concept, it does not accept the concept of something � light, matter, or anything else � coming from nothing. Why should science break its own rules for the birth of consciousness?

Neuroscience tells us that the human brain is made up of approximately 100-billion nerve cells, called neurons. These cells communicate with one another and the body through tiny electrochemical impulses. The neuron cell charges and discharges much like a battery. At rest it has a potential of -70mV and when enough positively charged sodium permeates the neuron cell wall to bring the charge up to -55mV the neuron electrically fires, or discharges, to the dendrite receiver of the next neuron. While the on going chemical process travels from 200 to 250 miles per hour across the nervous system, the electricity fires across the neuron cell at the speed of light and falls into the electromagnetic spectrum. These electrical impulses traveling along neuro-system pathways exist as a manifestation of light in one or more of the bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. Again we find the significance of light (photons) and the physical body. Light both holds the body together by the presence of gluons binding the quarks in the protons and neutrons; and in thought, electrically fired neurons direct every activity of the body. Both mentally and physically the body is controlled electrically. Your heart beats because a burst of light energy electricity strikes your atrial chamber in your heart and makes it pump. Lose your electricity (light energy) and you lose your body. It will die. It�s that simple. If your heart loses its electrical integrity and you develop sick sinus syndrome, a pacemaker can often be installed to produce adequate current. When the atrial chamber receives from 2 to 3 volts from the pacemaker it will initiate a beat. The heart functions because of electrical stimulation and the source of that input is apparently irrelevant to the heart.

We have shown that the human body did not begin with a birth (i.e. it did not come from �nothing�), but rather, it is made up of a collection of particles billions of years old, held together essentially by light energy, and acting in accord with the known principles of quantum physics. In the same way, we all know that the human body will not vanish at death. Rather, it will change again into the elements from whence it came. It was literally made out of stardust and it will return to stardust when the electrical light energy leaves it.

In the world of science, we don�t get something from nothing. If we can�t get something from nothing from a scientific perspective, and consciousness is clearly something, then where does it come from and where does it go? Consciousness cannot be a product of the brain. If so, the Law of Conservation of Energy (which says energy cannot be created or destroyed) must be discarded. If consciousness is not the product of the human brain, then what is it, and what is its source?

We have defined consciousness as: the sum total of all knowledge that is retained in the physical body in any medium, in any place, by any means, and in any form, both conscious and subconscious. This means that each individual has a unique consciousness, distinct from all others. But how do we get this knowledge that comprises our consciousness?

There is a vast band of light frequencies in our universe traveling at the speed of light. Collectively, we call them the electromagnetic spectrum. Presently, we recognize the electromagnetic spectrum as long wave radio frequencies on the bottom, up to gamma rays at the top of the spectrum. Between these two extremes lie microwaves, infrared waves, near-infrared waves, visible light (in all its array of colors), ultraviolet light, and x-rays. These are sometimes divided into sub-groups such as the different radio waves, short-wave, vhf, uhf, etc. Regardless of which band of the electromagnetic spectrum you are observing, they are all electromagnetic radiation which is a stream of photons. (Every photon contains a bundle of light energy.) Every photon is without mass and travels at light speed. The different spectrums in the electromagnetic spectrum are differentiated only by their frequencies � how fast they rhythmically vibrate in an orderly fashion. Each cycle of the orderly rhythm is identified as a sine wave and is measured in cycles per second. The magnetic part of the electromagnetic spectrum results from the movement of photons. Magnetism always results when light energy is in motion. As we have shown, the physical body operates on electromagnetic light energy impulses across neuron cells.

It is the height of scientific arrogance to assume that we have identified all the spectrums in the full electromagnetic spectrum. Heinrich Hertz discovered radio waves in 1888, which is just like a minute ago in cosmic time. Electricity was first used to power a lamp in Dover, England in 1858 in a lighthouse. In the space-time continuum in the field of the electromagnetic spectrum we a mere babies playing with a brand new toy.

We know that all photons have light speed velocity but only certain photons carry information that can be absorbed by a human through his senses. This theory refers to all photons in any spectrum of the electromagnetic spectrum as neurophotons if they are within human comprehension through any of the senses and can be integrated into human consciousness through the nervous system. Secondary neurophotons consist of impulses absorbed through the senses exclusive of sight; i.e. hearing, smell, touch, and taste and transformed in the brain into electrical impulses for inclusion in human consciousness. For the purposes of our theory, the term neurophoton is used to designate the nature of the photons rather than the frequency of the photons. We know that there are sounds at frequencies so high that we can�t hear them although dogs clearly can. We know that there are sounds at frequencies so low that we can�t hear them although elephants clearly can. The very same principle holds true for color and light. Humans consciously experience only a very small spectrum of the photon activity in the electromagnetic spectrum at any given moment in time. Visible light makes up only one-thousandths of one percent of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Photons are light, and light travels at roughly 186,000 miles per second (299,792,458 kilometers per second). Theoretically, nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, although some physicists allow for the possibility of �tachyons.� Tachyons are particles that travel faster than the speed of light, but thus far in scientific inquiry, no one has observed any phenomenon that cannot be explained within the present understanding of physics which embraces the theory that nothing travels faster than light. If tachyons exist Cerenkov radiation could detect them easily. When photons are slowed down sufficiently in a medium of mass, and a particle is accelerated faster than the photons are traveling in that medium, the faster particle will emit Cerenkov radiation (sometimes called Cerenkov light). If tachyons existed, Cerenkov radiation studies would have likely indicated their reality by now. In a vacuum where photons travel at true light speed, Cerenkov radiation has never been detected. Therefore, at this point in science, most physicists don�t believe that tachyons exist.

Assume you live on a planet that is 160 million light-years from earth. This is a very short distance in galactic terms. (The most distant object to be seen in our universe is 18 billion light years away.) On your distant planet, assume you have constructed a telescope capable of seeing planet earth clearly. Today, at this very moment in time, you look through the telescope, what would you see? You would see all the dinosaurs that lived 160 million years ago in the Jurassic period. If you wanted to see what things on earth look like today, you�d have to wait 160 million years from today, because the light leaving our planet today will not reach your planet for 160 million years. The photons from our planet earth that are striking your planet today left our planet 160 million years ago. A certain spectrum of these photons contained the information with the images of the dinosaurs and flora that covered our planet during the Jurassic period. The information within those photons will still contain the same information when you view them that they contained when they left the surface of the earth 160 million years ago. Furthermore, they will continue bearing that information to infinity. As we have stated, the Neurophoton Consciousness Theory calls these certain information carrying photons capable of human integration into consciousness, neurophotons. Neurophotons travel, like all other photons, at the speed of light; therefore, the speed of light is also the speed of information. Information, in turn, is the component that makes up our consciousness which we have defined as the sum total of all knowledge that is retained in the physical body in any medium, in any place, by any means, and in any form, both conscious and subconscious.

But let�s drastically reduce the distance between you and the event you are observing. Let�s reduce that distance to the distance between you and the paper you are now reading (or the computer screen you are now viewing). The information must reach you in the very same way � light in the form of neurophotons. After all, you are not hard wired to the events you observe. They must travel to you across space and time on neurophotons. It is the nature of these bundles of information laden neurophotons to continue to infinity. If you and I stand in an open field ten feet apart, I can clearly see your image because neurophotons bring the image to me and I absorb them into my consciousness. If someone else is observing you 100 yards away, they too will see your image because neurophotons acting as a unique bundle of information will take your image to them. More importantly, if someone is 100 million light years away with enough sophisticated technology; they too can see your image, although they must wait 100 million years to do so. The point is, neurophotons bundled into unique information packets continue to infinity.

We gather information primarily from sight and sound. As we have said, sight is absorbed from neurophotons or light. Sound waves are rapid vibrations that strike our eardrum traveling from their source at 1,100 feet per second. Sound must have a medium to travel through. There is no sound in a vacuum. The human ear serves as a transducer, converting sound energy to mechanical energy and then to a nerve impulse that is transmitted to the brain. A nerve impulse is the electrical discharge that travels along the nerve fiber. In the final analysis, whether we get our information directly from light when our eyes observe things, or indirectly through nerve impulses stimulated by touch, smell, or hearing, it is translated, stored, and re-transmitted throughout the body through electrical stimuli across the nerves. Science does not have a uniform understanding of electricity, but it is universally understood that electricity travels at light speed. While the electrons that move in electricity are mass particles, the force of electricity that makes them move is not mass and that force travels at light speed. Electricity is yet another form of the many manifestations of light across the vast electromagnetic spectrum. Physicist James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879), among others, agreed with this assessment. We have no problem identifying all mass particles with rest weight as matter; we should equally have no problem identifying anything without mass or rest weight traveling at light speed as some spectrum of light.

We know then where our consciousness comes from. It is absorbed through our senses from a type of photon (light) called a neurophoton that carries information, which we receive and process in our brain, which in turn will store the information and make it available through electromagnetic impulses throughout our nervous systems; or it is translated into electrical nerve impulses from our sense of touch, smell, taste, or the vibration of sound striking our ear drums. These electrical nerve impulses translated from any medium other than sight are secondary neurophotons. Consciousness does not originate in the human brain. Neurophotons may be stored and processed in the brain, but all information is extracted from neurophoton light. Light is without mass or weight, and light taken from light remains light. This is evident from neurological studies that have proven that the brain fires electrochemical-magnetic impulses to operate our body and produce our thoughts and our reaction to our thoughts. Electromagnetic phenomena are the product of photons in movement. Every movement you make, therefore, originated in light. Information is the fundamental substance of consciousness, and information is borne on light and in fact is light. Therefore, consciousness itself is light.

Albert Einstein wrote his famous Theory of Special Relativity in 1905 to present a fundamental set of principles and properties with which to interpret the universe. In simplistic terms he gave us usable definitions and parameters for space, time, matter, motion, mass, energy, and light, and then set about explaining the universal interaction of these properties. The thing that has caused so much difficulty with the theory (because it remains such a paradox) is the overwhelming conclusion in the Law of Special Relativity. In short, Einstein said, here are the rules of the physical universe but light won�t play by these rules. Everything else does, but light (photons) will not. In a sense this was good because, while all things are in a constant state of flux, light speed remains constant. Absolutely nothing in the entire cosmos is stationary but at least something moves the same way all the time. This fact gave a universal constant against which all variables could be measured.

Light, and light alone, moves at the same speed regardless of where the observer views it. The velocity of everything else is relative to the observer. This is the foundation of Special Relativity. If I am standing still and you are approaching me in a jet plane at 500 miles per hour and you fire a gun from the nose of your plane with a bullet velocity of 500 miles per hour, the speed of your plane and the speed of the bullet are additive which means that the bullet is effectively coming toward me at 1,000 miles per hour. Now if you are in the same plane and you turn on your headlight, you would think that the beam of light would approach me at the speed of light plus the speed of your airplane just like the bullet did. Again, you would think the speed of the plane and the speed of the light would be additive. They are not. Light approaches me at the speed of light alone. If your plane speeds up to 100,000 miles per hour, it will not change the speed of the light approaching me. No matter where you observe light, its speed is not relevant to your position. If you are driving down a road at 60 miles per hour parallel to a railroad track and a train approaches you from the opposite direction at 60 miles per hour, when the train passes you it will appear to whiz by at 120 miles per hour; however, if a train travels along side you in the same direction on the parallel railroad track at 60 miles per hour, the train will appear motionless. Your position relative to the thing you are observing determines its apparent speed. But light doesn�t obey this rule. Coming or going, light speed will appear to be, and in fact, will be the same. Your relative position will never warp your perception of light speed. Light steadfastly refuses to obey the rules that everything else follows. So light photons don�t cooperate with the way we think things ought to behave in space or time.

Furthermore, photons ignore our laws in regard to time. Photons traveling at the speed of light are not constricted to the laws of time because anything traveling at the speed of light ceases to experience time. The faster you go, the slower time passes. This is called time dilation in quantum physics. Because your physical body has a velocity less than the speed of light, it will wear out and die. Light does not experience time, because at light speed time ceases. Therefore, light does not wear out and die. Light continues to infinity.

The idea of time dilation has been scientifically proven to the satisfaction of the scientific community. Two highly accurate atomic clocks were synchronized and one was left stationary while the other was placed on a high-speed plane and sent on a trip. When the plane returned the clocks were no longer synchronized. Time on the high-speed plane passed slower than time on the ground. The atomic clocks validated this hypothesis of Einstein�s.

If your body could go at the speed of light, time would cease for you. You would never grow a day older and your physical appearance would never change from the instant you reached light speed. You cannot do this, of course, because you have weight mass but photons do not. While the physics of the problem may be quite complex, it is easier to understand things if we simply perceive that objects with mass increase their leading mass surface the faster they go. In other words, the resistance a mass faces as it speeds up tends to flatten the object and thus produce yet more resistance. The more the leading mass surface increases the more resistance it presents to the medium it is traveling through. As resistance increases, energy requirements to increase speed toward the speed of light also increases. In the end, the energy needed to bring the mass up to light speed is insufficient for the size of the expanded surface mass - to the point of infinity. This dilemma is not a problem for photons because they do not have mass.

Let�s say I work at a space station and we take two atomic clocks and synchronize them and we put one in the space station and one on a spaceship. I am told to take off in the spaceship and proceed at 60% of light speed. Remember, I cannot actually get to the speed of light because I have mass, so lets keep it a constant 60% of the speed of light. The faster I go, the slower time will be. Let�s assume I am instructed to send a beam of light back to the space station every hour on the hour according to our synchronized clocks. In the beginning, the staff of the space station would look into the sky when their atomic clock reached the first hour, however, they would not see my light signal. My signal would arrive 2 hours after my departure by space station time. They looked into space at the precise moment their clock indicated one hour had passed and I sent the signal at the precise moment my clock said one hour had passed, but since I am traveling at an extreme speed, time passed slower for me � at 60% of light speed, my time was twice as slow as space station time. Our time is no longer uniform although both clocks are still synchronized and show that only a single hour has passed. When the space station reaches the 2-hour point from starting time, my beam will take 4 hours from starting point to reach them, yet both our clocks will indicate that we are both precisely at the 2-hour mark. Interpreted another way, I have only aged 2 hours in a 4-hour interval that passed at the space station according to the space station atomic clock. I am aging at half the rate of my comrades back in the space station.

We have determined where consciousness comes from: it comes from light; it is stored in our brain as light; and it is transferred throughout the body as light. We have determined that consciousness is unique to each particular individual because each individual has absorbed a different bundle of information from the light than any other individual. Now we must discuss, in scientific terms, the question that has plagued mankind from the first instant of his awareness of individuality. We must discuss what happens to individual consciousness when the physical body dies.

When your physical body dies, it does not vanish. It is 12+ billion years old and it simply returns to the elements from whence it came. In our entire universe there is nothing that is stationary. All things are forever and constantly in a state of flux - forever in movement and change. Your body, at least in its present form, is not going to last very long in terms of galactic time. But what about your consciousness? At first glance you might be inclined to believe that it will go away also. Why wouldn�t it? Your body will be nothing more than dust a few years after you die. But remember your consciousness is not made up of matter. It is made up of light. Again, remember, photons refuse to play by the rules of the physical universe that dictate the behavior of everything else. Also, remember that photons travel effortlessly at the speed of light. Remember also that anything traveling at the speed of light will cease to be constrained by the ordinary physical rules of the space-time continuum. Time has stopped for light. Actually, time never really existed for light to begin with.

Let us suppose that you drop dead this instant. There can be no �magic� or �superstition� in quantum physics. Every element of your body must follow the laws of quantum physics. Even the photons, while not following the laws of the other elements, will nonetheless follow the clearly observable laws that define the behavior of all other photons. There are no maverick photons. There is no cosmic magic. The physical body must dissolve into individual atoms over a period of time and then find identity in other things. The atoms that make up your body existed billions of years ago and they will exist billions of years from now. But the photons that comprise individual consciousness are without physical constraint and must act like photons. They travel at the speed of light. This light consciousness can no more vanish without violating the fundamental laws of quantum physics than the physical electrons and protons of the body can.

Your consciousness is unique to you. It is a unified field of light. When all the bundles of neurophoton light energy in your consciousness exit the body at the same time that your physical body dies, those consciousness photons will act in a manner consistent with all other photons. They will be free to instantly reach the momentum of light speed and with that they will - in that precise moment - achieve timelessness and immortality. This is not religion; this is science.

That we are unable to observe something as tiny as a unified light field of individual consciousness across the vast spectrum of the electromagnetic spectrum in the same manner that we observe the light field of a many mega-ton star in the night sky is completely understandable. It is an accepted fact of physics that we cannot observe vast quantities of the electromagnetic spectrum unless we leave our earth�s atmosphere and venture into space. We cannot see X-rays, or ultraviolet light. In fact, we see much less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum. Because of the nature of consciousness it would manifest in a spectrum outside visible light, much like electricity or gamma rays.

In relationship to velocity, nomenclature for the particles of the universe has been greatly simplified by some physicists to the two terms tardyons (<c) and photons �: that is, things that don�t travel at the speed of light and photons that do. When your physical body dies; because it has resting weight mass and occupies space, (tardyon group) it will remain mass but will disintegrate in time into trillions and trillions of individual atoms of mass that will eventually make up other forms of mass, including other life forms. Why doesn�t your consciousness do the same thing? Remember, your consciousness is made of light, and photons do not obey the general rules of the universe as defined in Special Relativity. In a sense, your consciousness may explode into a million different directions, just as your body disintegrates into many new things; but your unique consciousness will remain your single unique consciousness bearing all the information contained therein. Why is that?

This is a scientific paradox, but it is true. For instance, we know, though we don�t understand, that at the most sub-atomic levels, even particles of mass (electrons) can be in two places at once. When electrons are fired through specially built tubes that present two possible paths for the electrons to travel, some of those electrons, paradoxically, will travel through both tubes at the same time. Yet electrons are tiny particles of mass with weight and space dimensions of height, depth, and width, so it is not hard to understand that photons without mass can be in different places at one time, perhaps millions of places at one time. We can clearly observe this phenomenon in the universe. The proof lies in the fact that bundles of neurophotons bearing information continue to infinity as we have already shown. You can look into the night sky and observe a star that died billions of years ago. What you are seeing is the photons that left that star billions of years ago when it exploded, laden with the unique information-filled photons that tell the story of that star. In deep space, at light speed, they continued to travel in a unified field, uninterrupted by the constraints of time or mass and, billions of years later, appear in the night sky tonight as a star. You can look at them in the night sky and the light you see is a clear �fossil� record of that dead star, billions of years old. All the information is there. But remember, Special Relativity tells us that light is the same without regard to your relative position. If there are planets with beings billions of light years on the other side of that dead star or in any other direction from it, they too will observe the same light, containing the same �fossil� record of the very same star you observe on this side of the Milky Way. The fact that the photons stick together is clearly evident by the fact that you see a single light in the night sky although it has been traveling for billions of years - ample time to disintegrate into nothingness. In 1974, astronomer Carl Sagan championed an effort by humans to contact extraterrestrial intelligence. The program that resulted, Communication with Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CETI) beamed a binary message composed by astrophysicist Frank Drake and Sagan toward the M13 star cluster 21,000 light years away. Why would they choose this method of communication? It is self-evident that these scientists understood that a bundle of information packaged on photon energy (like their binary radio signal) would reach a destination 21,000 light years away intact. In point of fact, it will continue on perpetually to infinity. Your consciousness, being information charged light, is compelled to follow these same laws of physics.


Air passes through the lungs but air is not a product of the lungs. Blood passes through the heart but blood is not a product of the heart. And consciousness passes through the brain but consciousness is not a product of the brain, even though the brain stores and processes the bits of electromagnetic data retrieved from the space we interact with. Consciousness is a product of light. It begins as light; it remains light while interacting within the physical body; and it continues as light when the body dies.

Unless we revise the laws of physics including the Theory of Special Relativity, we must conclude that consciousness does not end with human death. Consciousness is constructed uniquely in the body of each person with light energy taken into their bodies through the senses, carried throughout the body on clearly identified carriers in the electromagnetic spectrum of the universe. The photons carrying information used to construct the unique consciousness of any individual existed before the birth of the individual and will continue to exist after the death of the individual because all the parts of individual consciousness are part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Furthermore, once those neurophotons are bound into a unique field of consciousness that particular consciousness continues to exist as a singular cohesive light field because it is the nature of light bearing information to do so. At the speed of light, photons are not acted upon by time or any other stimuli that act upon things with rest mass; therefore, they exist perpetually to infinity.

Appendix A


Radio: This is the energy that radio stations emit into the air to carry information changed from sound vibrations to photon information through a microphone. Radio waves are also emitted stars and gases in space.

Microwaves: This is the same kind of photon wave used to cook with. They are also used by astronomers to learn about the structure of nearby galaxies, including the Milky Way.

Infrared: We often think of this as being the same thing as 'heat', because it makes our skin feel warm and keeps food hot. In space, IR light maps the dust between stars.

Visible: The part that our eyes see. Most of our knowledge travels across this medium either by direct observation of an event or by reading the words on a page or seeing the depiction on a screen. Visible radiation is emitted by everything from fireflies to light bulbs to stars. Visible light makes up only one-thousandth of a percent of the spectrum.

Ultraviolet: The Sun is a source of ultraviolet (or UV) radiation, because it is the UV rays that cause sunburn on our skin. Stars and other "hot" objects in space emit UV radiation.

X-rays: Used to look at bones and dentist use to look teeth. Hot gases in the Universe also emit X-rays.

Gamma-rays: radioactive materials (some natural and others made by man in nuclear power plants) emit gamma-rays. Big particle accelerators used to understand what matter is made of sometimes generate gamma-rays.

NOTE: Neurophoton: This theory refers to all photons in any spectrum of the electromagnetic spectrum as neurophotons if they are encoded with cohesive information and are within human comprehension through any of the senses and can be integrated into human consciousness through the neuron-system.
