We all know, when something or someone dies, the physical existence ceases to exist. But on another thought, is death actually observed in the universe? Of course, many of us believe in the spirit world, and that our consciousness transcends to another realm, when our physical body is no longer appropriate to contain it. It is sometimes referred to as the zero point field or a quantum realm of consciousness. Sometimes, the spirit is stuck somewhere in between rather than returning to the pool of pure quantum information, and we refer to them as ghosts. But to be honest, death is just another state of transformation in the universe, a portion of a slice taken of the universe at any instant, as it expands.
Some of you might know about the BICEP missions, that are being conducted, to understand the gravitational ripples in the cosmic microwave background and the space, when the universe was just in its birth pangs. By studying those imprints of the past, the gravitational ripples would tell, how matter and energy was actually distributed by the distortion of space itself in the early universe; which eventually chalked out the path of galaxies and all the matter, we see today. Every instant or to be more precise, in a span of micro micro seconds to billions of years, the universe was being blown out, from the size of less than an atomic nucleus to form this giant infinite space, of which we may never discover a horizon; for the very reason that it has been expanded so rapidly and extensively, deeming it almost topologically flat. The point to be understood is that each manifestation of existence, is just a state or a snapshot in that process of expansion, that includes us as well.
When space is being stretched apart, so is time. Something we know about physical states in case of matter, is that states or phases can be interchanged, depending upon the energy supplied or drawn from the system. In universe, death is merely a state change as the universe transits from one snapshot to another, that is occurring on account of it being stretched apart. The way we are trying to understand the past states of space, by just looking back physically through the study of the cosmic microwave background; looking back at time and its states could be a little trickier, because then we would know how to time travel, and wouldn’t that be fun. But what I am trying to get at is, that if something ceases to exist in the spatial dimensions we see, it doesn’t mean that it no longer exists in time. Time might be like an indexing feature, to define and store the quantum information of any point in space, in an organized manner. We just are not equipped to access it. If we could, we would know that, death is just a point of state change for matter, where the quantum data is transformed into another value, by the virtue of the universe stretching at the referred point in space.
