It's very interesting that William A. Tiller is trying to measure invisible spiritual energy. If he succeeds in proving spiritual energy scientifically, his study may become an integral part of "tomorrow’s" physics.
However, he said that he wants to ask a question to Buddhist master whether consciousness will continue after physical death. This indicates that he does not understand the no birth and no death nature of body and mind. And he also said that consciousness is a by-product of Spirit entering denser matter. This indicates he does not understand the true relation between body and consciousness. I hope he will understand the ultimate truth and continue his further study.
