In our hands, or rather in our eyes and, above all, in our ears came the video of a conference given by Dr. Manel Sans Segarra, who was Head of the General and Digestive Surgery Service of the Bellvitge University Hospital (Barcelona, Spain), offered in one of the latest editions of the Magic Internacional held in Barcelona. As already happened to Dr. Raymond Moody -Life after Life-, there came a time when doctor Sans concluded that the scientific method was not enough to explain the numerous casuistry lived and compiled by himself around to what is known as near-death experiences -NDEs-. Almost 50 years ago, as happened to Moody, for a doctor to speak of inexplicable phenomena that occurred during the clinical death of a patient entailed not only the loss of reputation and rejection by the scientific community, but also being demoted to the same level of those who at that time spoke of UFOs and paranormal phenomena, interestedly ridiculed by the media, presenting them to public opinion as authentic brainless.
But things have changed a lot since then, and there are more and more qualified voices that, from within Science itself, claim "to move from a materialistic monism to a reality with a certain component of philosophical idealism and transcendence that allows us to accept our existential reality", as Dr. Sans Segarra himself affirms. As we will see, he does not only renounce science, but uses it, as is the case with Quantum Physics, to try to explain and make sense of our existential reality. "The scientific method tells us that the human being is a simple observer in the Universe; that everything depends on natural laws that he cannot influence. This is not true. Quantum Physics proves that we are co-creators of the Universe; the observer and the object are intimately united, and we are capable of materializing energy. Determinism disappears completely", he says.
«A fundamental aspect of Quantum Physics, and which is fulfilled in ECMs, is the transfer of information between two related particles, regardless of space and time.»
"We will see that NDEs have points in common with the basic principles of Quantum Physics (...), whose fundamental conclusion is that the basic structural element of the Universe is not matter, but energy. Everything is energy. This conditions a new paradigm that has a very clear impact both on the structural concept of the Universe and on the existential concept of the human being", points out Dr. Sans, adding that "energy can neither be created nor destroyed; rather it can only be transformed or converted from one form to another. And the other fundamental property is that energy is in a continuous vibratory state and propagates in electromagnetic waves of variable frequencies."
According to the doctor, "a fundamental aspect of Quantum Physics, and which is fulfilled in near-death experiences, is the transfer of information between two related particles, regardless of space and time. This is demonstrated in photons. And another important aspect that is also true in our NDEs is that the parameters that we use in the scientific method to define matter, such as time, space, and speed, completely disappear. Time, as Stephen Hawking demonstrated, in the field of Quantum Mechanics it is circular; there is only present. Eternity in the quantum field is the absence of past and future; there is only present. On the other hand, in the scientific method time is linear; we have past, present and future".
«The human being is a coherent quantum complex; all our energies are synchronized. And when they lose this synchronism is when the pathology appears.»
For Manel Sans "human beings are a coherent quantum complex, that is, all our energies are synchronized, they act simultaneously. And when they lose this synchronism is when pathology appears. This is the principle of energy medicine, which nowadays, as we are so dominated by the scientific method, it is considered complementary. I am on the Board of the College of Physicians and there is tremendous pressure to introduce complementary therapeutic medicines, but logically there's a brutal brake due to the scientific conception of medicine currently; but it is a reality. I increasingly agree that we are pure energy. We are a quantum, energetic complex... and we have to look for this synchrony".
He adds that "the human being is like an antenna; we are continuously emitting energy. When it is a synchronized energy, it quickly tunes in with our environment. You see a person at a certain moment and say: I like this person. Why? Because the energy that one and the other are emitting is synchronous. On the other hand, there are people by your side and, it's not that they are better or worse than me, but we don't tune in. Why? Because the energies that they emit are not synchronous".
«From the anthropological point of view we have the body, the mind and a non-local consciousness, which has continuity outside the brain and which is eternal, is linked to the entire Universe in a loving way and is holistic.»
To the question "What is the conception of the human being from the quantum point of view?", the doctor answers that "it is made up of the body. And what is the body? It is low-frequency energy. All that is solid is empty (...) and this explains that energy can pass through matter that, in reality, is empty. Have you seen the movie Ghost? It has very certain things, which are real; you saw how they pass through the subway, enter, exit, go through matter... because matter from the quantum point of view is empty; therefore, our body is low frequency energy. After the body we have the mind, with our emotions, feelings, thoughts, memories, learning, and local or neural awareness, as a result of the activity of our neurons. You already know that the brain is the most perfect structure that exists; We have a hundred billion neurons, three trillion synapses, connections. It is something extraordinary, impressive. Well, from the anthropological point of view we have the body, we have the mind with those mental functions that will be energy with a higher frequency, it vibrates faster, and then we have a non-local consciousness."
«We are not, as Darwin said, isolated elements that adapt according to evolution, but rather we form an intimately related whole, lovingly united.»
"What is non-local consciousness? It is a consciousness that has continuity outside the brain. It is a subtle energy that we cannot perceive with our sensory organs, which have a limited receptive capacity. And this subtle energy non-local consciousness has three fundamental properties: one, that is eternal, we have already said that in the quantum field energy is always present, it has neither past nor future, it is always in the now. This energy is linked to the entire Universe, to the entire Cosmos in a loving way. Contrary to Darwin or neo-Darwinism said, we are not separate, isolated elements that adapt according to evolution, but rather we form an intimately related whole, lovingly united. And the third aspect is that this consciousness is holistic", explains Dr. Sans Segarra.
«As our body and brain disappear, our local or neural consciousness disappears or is transformed, but our non-local consciousness lasts forever. There is a First Consciousness and ours is part of it. It is lovingly united to it and has its properties, which are: omnipresence, it is eternal; omniscience, knows everything; and omnipotence, can do everything.»
According to the doctor, "the holistic concept is known to derive from the fractal, a complex mathematical term introduced by Mandelbrot, which comes from fraction, from parts. The Universe is a great fractal, which means that it is a whole formed by an infinity of parts, and each one of these parts has the properties of the whole, that is to say, the whole, what we call the total hologram, is not the sum of the properties of the parts, but each one of the parts has all the properties that the total hologram has, and this total hologram, my friends, we have to call it First Consciousness, Universal Quantum Energy, First Energy... call it whatever you want... Some of my patients call it God, others call it Jehovah, others Allah... call it what you want, but there is a First Energy and our consciousness is part of this First Energy. It is lovingly united to it and has its properties, which are: omnipresence, it is eternal; omniscience, it knows everything; and omnipotence, it can do everything. So, with this consciousness, which is eternal, obviously after physical death this non-local consciousness persists. There is an existence after physical death (...) When our body and brain disappear, our local or neural consciousness disappears or is transformed, but our non-local consciousness lasts forever."
«At the moment that this reality of the human being as a coherent quantum complex is accepted, many principles of scientific medicine will go to the ground... and it will be significant the amount of drugs that will disappear».
Dr. Sans does not beat around the bush when acknowledging that "you do not know how hard it is for me to defend the near-death experience in my hospital, as head of service and professor at the university, because for both medical and nursing staff, all of this is nonsense; nowadays scientism, together with the great pressure that there is from pharmaceutical multinationals, the pressure we have is brutal... there is a tremendous brake on accepting this existential reality of the human being as coherent quantum complex. Just as Quantum Physics has knocked down many principles that were fundamental to the scientific method, once this is accepted many principles of scientific medicine will go to the ground, I assure you, and it will be significant the amount of drugs that will disappear. I fight on the Board of the College of Physicians, because there is pressure to create alternative medicine sections and there are tremendous brakes; I strongly support it".
That is why he insists that "we have to achieve a critical mass, sufficient, to say: Enough of materialism! Enough of this materialist scientific vision! We have to pass to a certain transcendent idealism. Scientism is fundamental; thanks to it in the last hundred years we have doubled life expectancy of Humanity. But the existential reality is our non-local consciousness. There should be subjects in the Bachelor's Degree in Medicine that explain our existential reality, our consciousness, and the importance of the energetic synchrony of our body, which is what really conditions health or illness. We are aimlessly shooting at the consequences of pancreatic cancer, esophageal cancer... but we are not aiming to the causes, the cause is an energetic asynchrony. But for this we need to change the ideology; moving from a materialistic monism to a reality with a certain component of philosophical idealism and transcendence that allows us to accept our existential reality".
«Our local consciousness is tremendously egotic, it is pure ego, and the ego camouflages, hides, covers our non-local consciousness and prevents it from manifesting itself.»
Regarding his opinion on how non-local consciousness is connected with local or neuronal consciousness, the doctor appeals to "a study by Stuart Hameroff and Roger Penrose in which they talk about microtubules, structures of the microskeleton of neuronal cells in the form of spiral, and that according to them it would be there where the connection between non-local and neuronal consciousness would take place. Our existential reality is non-local consciousness, it is the one that gives orders to local consciousness, and transforms them into the orders that we experience. The sad thing is that our local consciousness is tremendously egotic, it is pure ego, and the ego camouflages, hides, covers up our non-local consciousness and prevents it from manifesting itself."
Last but not least, regarding whether or not animals have a conscience, Dr. Sans says the following: "Pets have a conscience; mistreating an animal is a very bad thing to do because it really suffers and feels it, because it has a certain self-consciousness, although people say it doesn't; it is aware of its life because it has a low level of consciousness, but it does, therefore it deserves all respect."
