Live Science recently published an article that theoretically questions the existence of ghosts based on the results from what is known as a Large Hadron Collider. Amazingly, this device accelerates protons to velocities approaching the speed of light and slams them together. Incredible as this process is it is not an instrument that can measure whether ghosts exist or not.
Physicist Brian Cox, an Advanced Fellow of particle physics at the University of Manchester has reportedly made such erroneous claims, which will explain shortly. In a recent segment of BBC Radio Four’s The Infinite Monkey Cage , Cox has this to say:
“If we want some sort of pattern that carries information about our living cells to persist then we must specify precisely what medium carries that pattern and how it interacts with the matter particles out of which our bodies are made. We must, in other words, invent an extension to the Standard Model of Particle Physics that has escaped detection at the Large Hadron Collider. That’s almost inconceivable at the energy scales typical of the particle interactions in our bodies.”
Cox’s remarks are wrong for all the right reasons. First, Mr. Brain Cox, you should speak with a reputable occultist, or shaman, and get a clear definition of what a “ghost” is before taking an idea of the term, as it is used on face value, and then claiming that it doesn’t exist.
The problem is not physicist Brian Cox. The problem is in the approach that modern science takes in trying to investigate the reality of occult phenomena. First, a machine will only prove itself to be an extension of the five senses, nothing more and nothing less. So in order for us to follow investigations made by the modern scientific community, or physicists like Mister Brian Cox, we must first believe that there is no life beyond what can be observed by the five senses. Machines, which are only an empowering extension of the five senses, must validate this. This is how Mister Brian Cox and a slew of academics “prove” their findings.
However, this also means that anything that is said to exist beyond the five senses, unless it can be tracked by a machine, which is no more than an extension of the five senses, isn’t real. Our emotions and thoughts must not be real according to the modern scientific standard The same goes for our dreams. A machine may detect physical responses, like chemical changes, due to the thoughts and emotions experienced by the individual. But then the question arises, what is the difference in these chemical reactions in the body that we receive from certain emotions versus those observed by people who are monitored while seeing a ghost? Even plants are able to respond and protect themselves by recognizing things that exist outside their sensory perception. Please Mr. Brian Cox, or Neil deGrasse Tyson contact me before promoting these foolish “scientific claims.”
