Theologians, philosphers, metaphysicians, agnostics and atheists: all have debated the soul, its composition and properties, and even if it truly exists. Now scientists claim they not only have proof humans have an immortal soul, but that they’ve weighed it and photographed it leaving the body at the moment of death. One amazed researcher purportedly has documented a screaming soul’s plunge into the fiery depths of Hell…
The soul exists, scientists claim
Arthur Schopenhauer, a 19th Century philospher, observed the universe is not a rational place. That insight was later borne out by the famous “Chaos Theory” now accepted by most modern-day phycisists.
The universe is mysterious, contradictory, mystical, ethereal, and often very, very scarey. Many humans would not choose to live here if there were someplace else to go. Religions say there are other places, but they can only be reached through death.
The debate that’s raged for thousands of years is: where is the proof?
Now some scientists claim they have the proof.
Schopenhauer’s famous maxim states that “All truth passes through three stages: first, it is ridiculed; second, it is violently opposed; and third, it is accepted as self-evident.”
As Mankind is propelled headfirst further into the Second Millennium, the truth of life after death( or life after life) is coming into sharper focus.
Technology has reached the stage allowing peeks into alternate dimensions, realities, and universes…tantalizing glimpses into what some still call Heaven and Hell.
Scientists claim human soul weighs 1/3,000th of an ounce
An amazing experiment conducted by researchers in Dresden, Germany determined that the human soul does exist and it weighs exactly 1/3000 of an ounce. The breakthrough study was published in the german science journal, Horizon.
Co-author Dr. Becker Mertens wrote in a letter that accompanied the study that “The inescapable conclusion is that we have now confirmed the existence of the human soul and determined its weight.
“The challenge before us now is to figure out exactly what the soul is composed of”, he explained. “We are inclined to believe that it is a form of energy.”
Although some scientists were immediately critical of the study’s results, physicist Dr. Elke Fisher who was part of the research team responded by pointing out that the scientists were careful to account for all weight differences including air leaving lungs.
“It occurred to us that the weight loss could be the result of an instantaneous physical deterioration,” said Fisher. “But after exhaustive study we agreed that was not the case. The only possible explanation is that we were measuring the loss of the human soul or some kind of life force.”
After taking all variables into account, their scale (accurate to within 1/100,000th of an ounce) clearly measured an anomalous 1/3000 difference.
Approaching the ‘Island of Lost Souls’
Watters experiments with souls
As far back as the 1940s researchers were seeking proff of the soul. Dr. R.A. Watters, at the time the director of the William Bernard Johnston Foundation for Psychological Research in Reno, Nevada, developed an incredible atomic hypothesis of the soul. He proposed that souls (whether human or animal) existed in a limbonic state within the “intra-atomic space between the atoms of human cells.”
For those unfamiliar with a cloud chamber, it is a scientific apparatus used mostly by physicists to observe and track the passge of both atomic and sub-atomic particles. Using such a device, Watters believed, would permit the observation and tracking of a soul departing a living thing precisely at the moment of its death.
Watters chose an insect as the subject of his experiment. He placed a grasshopper into the cloud chamber and euthenized it with an overdose of ether. A camera was strategically placed to snap a photo at the moment the life force left the creature. The camera shutter was set to trigger when an expansion of water vapor inside the chamber was detected. Previous tests revealed that at the moment of death, the water vapor in the chamber would detectably rise.
The photo revealed an odd, unexplainable “shadow phenomenon” that matched the shape of the creature.
Watters carried on with more experiments to see if the same phenomenon appeared with animals at the moment of death. He conducted 40 more experiments using mice and frogs instead of grasshoppers.
The results were conclusive. Every photo clearly showed the shadow. Each shadow followed the shape of the animal that died.
He noted that every experiment that concluded with the permanent death of a creature the shadow would last as long as eight hours. If the animal only lost consciousness, however, and was later resuscitated, no shadow phenomenon would appear.
Dr. Korotkov’s ‘GDV’ camera
The Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) Bioelectrography camera measures the human energy field. Currently, it’s the only device of its kind in the world.
The system is highly complex and relies on integration of computer software to analyze in real-time the variable distribution of energy levels of biological objects (termed: “gomeokinesis”). The “…evoked bioelectrographic signals and estimation of state by means of non-linear mathematics and ‘data mining’ methods” assist in creating a mosaic of the bio-energy field under study.
The GDV camera in operation
From his abbreviated bio: “Konstantin Korotkov is Professor of Physics at St. Petersburg State Technical University in Russia. He has published over 70 papers in leading journals on physics and biology, and he holds 12 patents on biophysics inventions.
“Korotkov has led a research career for over 25 years, combining rigorous scientific method with an insatiable curiosity about things of the spirit and the soul with deep respect for all life.
“He is also a scholar in philosophy and a serious mountaineer of 20 years experience. He has given lectures, seminars and training sessions in 24 countries, presenting papers and workshops at more than 40 national and international conferences.”
The GDV camera captures spoul escaping at moment of death
These amazing photographs document the human soul (blue) exiting the body at the exact moment of death.The images show the soul easing from the body before the patient’s image becomes red. Notice that initially the midrift is sapped of life force, the head follows, and then finally the heart and groin area lose their energy and the soul has fled the deceased person’s body.

Screaming soul snatched by demons
Souls have been tracked leaving insects, animals, and human beings. Souls have been measured and weighed.
Some who have been with those that died and came back claim they also shared the visions and exsperiences of the NDE with their stricken friend or family member.
Yet, those are anecdotal tales offered by non-professionals who may be speaking through the trauma they felt or memories colored by powerful emotions.
A more scientific observations and subsequent analyses can be discovered from the astonishing experiences of a renown medical scientist: Dr. Maurice S. Rawlings.
A remarkable man, Dr. Rawlings, passed away on January 5th, 2010. What made the doctor remarkable is he witnessed more than one patient catapulted into the dark dimension called Hell and was able to document the incidents scientifically.
As Rob W. Case wrote in Free Republic: “Dr. Rawlings was noted as a man who witnessed the gateway between physical science and the real Hell. Rawlings was a war hero, a scientist (serving as Medical Director for Aventis and ZLB Bio-Science Laboratories), and a doctor. He served as a physician to President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and served as a physician to the Joint Chiefs of Staff, including famous names [in] American History such as World War II Generals George C. Marshall, Omar Nelson Bradley, and George S. Patton. He was an associate clinical professor of medicine for the University of Tennessee and a National Teaching Faculty for the American Heart Association.
“Dr. Rawlings was an extremely accomplished man and a self-professed atheist…until he personally experienced patients whose souls were snatched away screaming as they were plunged into the dimensional void of the damned known as Hell.”
From Rawlings own recollections in his book, To Hell and Back:
“I was watching a monitor to guide a pacemaker into my patient’s heart when it happened…his heart stopped. The patient recounts his story in this way: ‘I blacked out and then you hit me on the chest…Somebody was yelling. Something crashed over my left shoulder; everybody went crazy. And then I was out of it. I was floating, pitch black, moving fast. The wind whistled by and I rushed toward this beautiful blazing light. As I moved past, the walls of the tunnel caught fire. Beyond the blazing tunnel a huge lake of fire was burning like an oil spill.’
Then the demons came.
“‘Elongated shadows showed that people were moving aimlessly about like animals in a zoo enclosure. Down the hill I saw an old friend who had died; the last I recall they were dragging the river for him.
“‘Hi there Jim!’ I called out.
“‘He just looked at me, didn’t even smile. The demons were taking him around the corner when he started screaming.’ They dragged him into the pit of Hell. ‘I ran, but there was no way out. Suddenly I was back in my body, as you were putting in the stitches.'”
The patient’s heart had started again. He was clinically dead for several minutes.
In another recollection, a patient told Dr. Rawlings, “I was guided to a place in the spirit world called Hell. This is a place of punishment. I not only saw Hell, but felt the torment that all who go there experience. The darkness of Hell is so intense that it seems to have a pressure per square inch. It is an extremely black, dismal, desolate, pressurized, heavy, type of darkness. It gives the individual a despondent feeling of loneliness. The heat is a dry, dehydrating type. Your eyeballs are so dry they feel like red hot coals in their sockets. Your tongue and lips are parched and cracked with intense heat…The loneliness of Hell cannot be expressed.”
So many NDE incidents have occurred in hospitals between people who were clinically dead and the doctors and nurses who attended them that a significant number of hospital personnel no longer doubt that life after death exists. The essence of a person (the soul) persists even after death.
