Scientist Photographs the Soul Leaving the Body

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The timing of astral disembodiment in which the spirit leaves the body has been captured by Russian scientist Konstantin Korotkov, who photographed a person at the moment of his death with a bioelectrographic camera.

The image taken using the gas discharge visualization method, an advanced technique of Kirlian photography shows in blue the life force of the person leaving the body gradually.


An interesting aspect of  Electrophotonic Imaging (EPI) applications is the research into consciousness processes. Many years of experimentation have made it possible to identify bioelectrographic correlates of altered states of consciousness (ASC) These are particular states, which a person enters during meditation, mental training, religious ecstasy, or when under the influence of drugs, psychedelics or anesthesia. For many years we have been measuring Russian extrasensories, Candamblier priests in Brazil, participants of the Ayahuasca ceremony in Peru,  Chinese Qi-gong masters, and healers in Germany, the USA, and Slovenia. And almost all of these observations we obtain signs characteristic of ASC. Similar results, using the most diverse devices and methods, were obtained in the laboratories of different countries. This shows that the processes of consciousness are apparent on the physiological processes measured by the EPI method.

According to Korotkov, navel and head are the parties who first lose their life force(which would be the soul) and the groin and the heart are the last areas where the spirit before surfing the phantasmagoria of the infinite.

In other cases according to Korotkov has noted that “the soul” of people who suffer a violent and unexpected death usually manifests a state of confusion in your power settings and return to the body in the days following death. This could be due to a surplus of unused energy.

The EPC method is based on the stimulation of photon and electron emissions from the surface of the object whilst transmitting short electrical pulses. In other words, when the object is placed in an electromagnetic field, it is primarily electrons, and to a certain degree photons, which are ‘extracted’ from the surface of the object. This process is called ‘photo-electron emissions’ and it has been quite well studied with physical electronic methods. The emitted particles accelerate in the electromagnetic field, generating electronic avalanches on the surface of the dielectric (glass). This process is called ‘sliding gas discharge’. The discharge causes glow due to the excitement of molecules in the surrounding gas, and this glow is what is being measured by the EPC method. Therefore, voltage pulses stimulate optoelectronic emission whilst intensifying this emission in the gas discharge, owing to the electric field created.

        Yes! Wow! What a crock!

        “an advanced technique of Kirlian photography”

        Yeah. Uh huh. They play with cameras and special effects in Hollywood, too.

        This is all of the occult and deception, roots in Theosophy, auras, etc. It’s a stone’s throw to Luciferian doctrines: get to the heart of what these guys teach, and it’s that you’re your own god.

        • TruthSeeker

          You are in your own deception, seriously. We are all immortal, we all have souls that live forever.
          Your body is a vehicle so that you can operate in this world, we are our own gods because we choose our own destiny.
          But, instead of me wasting my breath explaining all of these complex ideas to you which you obviously don’t understand, you can go ahead and go to church and Worship Santa Claus.

          The spirit world is here, and real. But creation itself makes up God, there is no individual being that everything worships. Wake up, your post is a joke.

          • tetragram 47Y

            Mr Truthseeker,

            Its kind of funny that you just explained the basics of one of the greatest secrets of this world and most everyone wants to laugh at it. If everyone understood our busses are just containers and we drive them, we would be much harder to control.

            The only thing we may see differently is that I am positive that what you refer to as a soul is what you should refer to as you. Your buss (body) is only a temporary container that can easily be replaced.

            The whole alien deception of greys and reptilians makes the whole thing even funnier. If Everyone understood that our leaders are aliens in earth busses it may be quite difficult for them to control us.

            They are laughing at all of us because we laugh at the truth.

          • nomorelabels

            Actually, if you are going by the bible in your theory, there is no teaching that we are “immortal”.

            The greek word for ‘eternal’ is actually “aionian”, which means age lasting or part of an age, it has nothing to do with “eternal” “Eternity” or “Immortal”.

            There goes the theory of “eternal hell” taught and believed by most. Eternal is actually “aionian” or “aion” and means a period of time or part of an age…again, no “eternal punishment” as taught by some sadistic folks.

            That is if one wants to be factual and accept that the word “eternal” was translated incorrectly. No one knows or has a clue what happens to us after we die. All anyone has is speculation.

        • TruthSeeker

          Obviously this article is photoshopped…..not trying to say I agree with that bs

        • Lion Of Judah

          Truthseeker is very deceived, it is luciferian and people like him won’t realize how much of a fool they’ve been until they’re suffering. The bible explains everything and no where does it talk about Santa Claus or Christmas smart ass. We choose to worship God and you choose Satan. Whether you believe it or not, the people who created your belief system did believe and worship Satan. Truthseeker you seriously need some help. Its unbelievable how accurate the bible is and how many “truth seekers” are DECEIVED. You obviously don’t accept truth bro. GOD BLESS YOU truthseeker, I hope you open your eyes and ears to real truth.

          • Angel Of Light

            Every single Abrahamic religion, including ALL denominations, are religions that are based exclusively on ASTROLOGY. Judaism, Christianity and Islam ALL practice astrology. When Christ told his apostles to prepare a chamber to celebrate Passover, what did he tell them? Luke 22:7-13. He is describing Aquarius. Christ feeding 5,000 people with 2 fishes (Pisces) and 5 loaves (Virgo, house of bread, 5 houses away from Pisces). The fish and fisherman references throughout the New Testament are beyond obvious. During the Age of Taurus, the Israelites made burnt offerings consisting of young bulls (Taurus). When Moses came down from Sinai the first time, he found the Israelites worshipping a golden calf (Taurus). He destroyed the tablets of.the new law (NEW AGE – AGE OF ARIES) and returned to Sinai. He came back down with the 10 commandments. Shortly thereafter, the Israelites discontinued the practice of making burnt offerings, and started blowing in Ram’s horns (Ram = Aries).

            This is a VERY brief overview. This stuff goes MILES deeper. The Egyptians, Sumarieans, and the JEWS all based their religious beliefs on ASTRONOMY. So, all of the self-righteous Christians who are still in spiritual kindergarten, really need to shut up. Do you have any idea how irritating it is for a 5 year-old to wag his finger at his parents as he lectures them on the finer points of finger painting and making mud pies?

        The human soul is pure energy in the quantum state of the fourth dimension. Not have the same shape of the abandoned body, so this photo is a mere illustration or a complete lie.

        Scientist photographs man die from heart burn after eating soul food

    • Louis

      The immortal soul — which is the breath of God — is invisible and cannot be detected by any scientific instrument. However, medical examiners know the soul weighs 20 grams because, at the moment of death when the soul leaves the body, a person’s body suddenly weighs 20 grams less.

      Scientists do not know what type of energy the soul is composed of. Because it is invisible, it cannot be studied.

      Even though many of Russia’s scientists are talented and brilliant, the above article is still not believable.

      • Anonymous

        “The immortal soul…is invisible and cannot be detected by any scientific instrument. However, medical examiners know the soul weighs 20 grams because, at the moment of death…person’s body suddenly weighs 20 grams less.”

        Um, so, actually you’re saying it can be detected by a scientific instrument and a very simple one at that – a weighing scale!

        Also, just because something is invisible does not mean it cannot be studied. Hundreds of millions, if not billions of $s are spent each year on a field of science that studies an invisible substance – aerodynamics!

      • hostile177

        Do you have a link to a source regarding this “20 grams”?

      • Sile

        Could the 20g reduction in weight not be attributed to other factors e.g. metabolic reaction linked to the failure of organs that leads to what is a tiny reduction in body mass? In other words is there any emprical evidence for a direct corelation between a reduction of 20g in weight and the existence of a soul?

        • Louis

          As the Law of the Conservation of Energy states: energy cannot be destroyed. It can only change form. That goes for matter, too, which is a form of energy.

          The soul is composed of a unique type of Divine energy that science cannot identify or isolate for study.

        • truthseeker4809

          I think the important factor here is the manner in which the body loses weight at the moment of death. If it is dehydration, than it can not be instantaneous. 20 grams is two third of an ounce. Not a small weight.

          My educated guess is that it is mostly hydrogen, carbon and oxygen glued together by the neutrinoic bonding. If it is purely neutrinoic, then there can’t be any weight. If it is purely atomic and molecular, then they can not remain bonded together. Nor would it have any life force.

      • tetragram 47Y

        Mr Lewis,

        Your soul can not be weighed or photographed because it is electrical / electromagnetic. It is YOU. Im with you the article is garbage.

        They are laughing at all of us all because we laugh at the truth.

    • jay67

      Another BIN article that headlines a piece of alleged “evidence” that never actually shows up. like the alleged “photo” of the “blue light” leaving the body. The lead photo is obviously not it unless blue morphed to gold.

    • Fake-it

      AWESOME !!!!
      Thanks Alton…

    • Anonymous

      Interesting but this experiment needs to be filmed under controlled conditions with witnesses and repeated more than once to be of any scientific value. I am sure there would be many terminally ill people ( probably doctors or scientists) that would like their families, or an expensive funeral to be well paid should it prove successful, as well as the proof that the person is not lost forever with more than just faith to back it up. Or not…

      “an advanced technique of Kirlian photography”

      LOL Kirlian photography doesn’t work that way, it captures the electrical resistance discharge of an object, no matter how advanced they claim the equipment is, that is all a kirlian camera can do. They pass a huge amount of amps through the object and the camera captures any resistance discharge. It’s not originating from the object but from electrical input.


    • yeahright

      BS. I’ve been dead before. There is nothing. Your photoshop skills do not trump my actual death adventure. Stop lying to people.

    • Joerg Klaemt

      Actually the weight although measured was closer in the microgram scale.
      All I remember reading likely the same Article that it took some very expensive instruments to detect the loss in Weight.
      20 grams ? It would not take years of scientific research to measure that amount.
      Please People please stay away from stupid remarks that you can not back up.
      Your credibility if you care about it is on the Line.

    • Don't be hating!

      Old news. You can go online and buy you own home device to measure your auroa. If you have the money to buy the system. The price is off the chain

        Another Moron,Kirlian photography does not measure weight nopr does it show your Soul.

      Excellent! Realize please that the intelligence…..Soul, can leave the body without the body being dead…and that the body will dumb out while the soul is gone….. The body can live a while the intelligence (soul) is absent.leaves….. example: a person in a comma’s soul is gone . …. un aware but still gone. This is awareness is so tied in to the new Evolution …. something the Gov have never liked to go public. …… for the masses should really not know about. thus a book Waken the Celestial.

      • Joerg Klaemt

        Correct and may I add ,that there were several recorded circumstances where someone had
        clinically died but described him seeing layoing on the operating table and describing the procedure and other details that was seen from above,as he said he saw himself floating above his body.If he was not he could not have seen what he described.
        I am sure you can find this and other Articles on the net.
        There is a Soul,spirit,and there is hell,it is for you to make the right choices.. ………..

          Yes there is plenty of cases where people have flatlined and explained mind blowing things they saw during this time,including a women who could say every detail of what was on the roof. Of the hospital as she floated up there, but pleAse,stop pushing this heaven hell and choice nonsense on people, people shouldn’t have to live and think every moment about their choice,is this right,will god approve of this, will I go to hell. Just live and be a good person and do what makes you happy, and stop living your life in accordance to a book,god,devil that has not ever showed it’s self to be is real,live it

    • LavenderRose

      HBO had a 2 part series on George Harrison (Beatle) and his wife said that when George left his body she was in the room, and she said if you were to film it, you would not need lights, as he he passed he was a huge light that filled the room. Since then, I have the eternal quest to understand our relationship to our spirit and the connectedness to all that is. Thanks GREAT post, they should teach this in schools of all ages!

      • DRAUGR

        Many people, including many prominent doctors have witnessed the same thing. I know in several hospital emergency rooms small shelves were installed high enough in the room that while standing on the floor what sat upon those shelves could not be seen. Many doctors were amazed to find that many patients that died and had been resuscitated reported that they hovered above there bodies. When asked what they saw they were able to accurately describe what was on those shelves. If that doesn’t give you a slight bit of the tinglies down the spine then nothing will.

      Look no further!

      Life after Death has finally been proven.

      73000 visits on the thread, and not ONE adverse comment.

      The evidence is overwhelming:


    • POC2014

      How do weight something that’s immaterial?

      • DRAUGR

        This phenomenon has been known for many years. Very simply the body of a dying person is set upon a special bed which is actually a very accurate scale. The dying person is hooked up to monitors. At the moment of death, when the monitors register no heartbeat or respiration the scales inexplicably show a slight loss of weight. Some have though it to be the last remnant of respiration leaving the body but more standardized and strict testing has since ruled this out. So that is how, what is believed to be the soul, is measured. As to how something that we have always thought of as immeasurable actually displays a physical characteristic value, such as weight, is not completely understood. It only goes on to further support the theory that we possess a soul while at the same time dismisses one of the common beliefs about the soul and its composition. Actually, many, many years ago I became quite excited when I read about this phenomenon. To me it was real, scientific proof (it could be demonstrated with the same results, over and over again that yes indeed the soul exists. What better news could one ask for than to know that when we draw our last breath it does not mean we simply cease to exist as a person. That suddenly changes the fear of dying now from a guessing game as what to expect at the moment of death rather than “Lights out Pal.” As to the authenticity of the photograph who knows? But remember there was a time that it was believed that the soul resided in a different dimension and thus could not be measured or weighed as it did not follow the laws of physics as we know it. I can tell you this. We are but infants in comparison when it comes to knowing the purpose of life and why the world and the universe is the way it is. People are going to get a lot wrong along the way to fully understanding just our own existence, let alone the reason of the universe.

        • MoonRydre

          well said draugr. may i add to your response and to poc2014 in particular, what is “immaterial” is YOU that is spirit. you are spirit. you “have” bodies. among these are your soul (a quality of your “identity”) astral body (mental) etheric body (electrical) and, of course, your physical body. the last two have physical (measurable) properties. it is this fact that makes the loss of “mass” at death measurable.

          i may add that i had made a kirilian device back in the eighties and i have had extensive experience with kirilian photography as i worked as a videographer for two kirilan photographers and witnessed some pretty amazing things.

          i would suggest you try it for yourself. i have and i loved it!

        • MoonRydre

          please, let me correct myself about a point i just made. you don’t “have” a soul. you are a soul. i misspoke when i refered it to a body. the spirit just witnesses the soul “lives”.

      *Cough*Cough* Horsehockey!

      Sorry, not buying it. But y’all go on believing whatever floats your boat.

      • DRAUGR

        But thankfully you too will come to know the truth someday, just like the rest of us. So I’d be careful what I consider “horse hockey”or not. Sometime in the future, when you least expect it, that horse hockey may be the single most important thing you have ever known in your existence. I can see it now. The gates start to swing open for you to enter the most beautiful place that you could imagine. You start to enter and then suddenly the gates slam shut. From out of nowhere there is a loud voice that say’s “Hold on there a minute. Houston we have a problem.” Then you hear bits and pieces of a hushed conversation. The few words that you do hear are the the words Horse hockey, followed by a disappointed sounding, “Oh, I see.” At this point you suddenly feel very, very nervous.

      This story has been posted here numerous times, by the same poster. Its just as fake this time as the other times. Wheres the photo of the soul leaving the body? Why not have that picture posted here? Oh, because it doesnt exsist.

      The picture at the beginning of this article, originates from here:

      Which is an article from March, 2010. Which is NOT an article about photographing death, just an article talking about dealing with death.

      This story is junk.

      • An Observer

        OH, almost forgot, the other two pictures I can see in this article and video, are cigarette smoke in front of a camera. Notice the one with the child and the bowl that looks suspiciously like an ash tray on the table. Proof of bad parenting not of ghosts. The outdoor picture is even more obviously smoke in front of a camera.

        But I guess if you must believe everything you read on the internet, it might seem convincing.

    • ghostlea

      Looks like a stonner to me.!!! With all this bs must have a good garden.!!!!

    • DRAUGR

      There is a reason that we are kept from knowing what awaits us after death and a reason for the instinct of self preservation. Having experienced an N.D.E. myself I can say that even though I was only disassociated from my body for a short time, the feeling is euphoria distilled into its finest element. So I had a glimpse and not a long look. From that short amount of time and being able to compare it to what we currently describe as alive, I can honestly say that if the day ever comes that man can find away to nullify the instinct of self preservation and then actually see and feel what it is like to be out of the body, people all over the world will be offing themselves without a second thought nor a look back. But, for yet unknown reasons this is not the plan and the safeguards in place to prevent us from finding out are pretty damned adamant that we do not until it really is our time. I am scheduled for a hip replacement this month and I’m scared. Even though I caught a glimpse of the beauty and joy that awaits when I die, the instinct of self preservation is back with a vengeance. I have to admit that even though my N.D.E. was over twenty years ago I am still somewhat comforted by that experience should my time actually arrive. One of my biggest concerns is what will happen to my rescued doggies and for the trauma it would cause my wife of course. For me it will a beautiful existence without pain, fear, loneliness, and all the other negative aspects that goes along with being alive in our bodies. But for those who love me, it will cause so much unnecessary pain & grief. That saddens me more than anything. I did notice that while experiencing life outside the body that I felt no connection to my former self. I had no feelings of regret, remorse or anything else reminding me of where I came from or who I was leaving behind. Perhaps it is a two street. Once you do cross to the other side, so to speak, any knowledge or perception of what you were is as off limits as when being alive and getting to know what awaits. Maybe these things, to put it crudely, are like being married and having a girlfriend. It is best if never the two shall meet.

    • Pandeva

      I’ve been reading the comments on here and in my opinion, why would anyone want to fake this. Unless I knew for definite that it was a fake, I would keep my mind open and accept it as a possibility. May be it’s not the soul; may be it’s something else, but to dismiss it entirely out of hand is as bad as accepting it fully without more being known.

      Those who say the soul cannot be detected by any scientific instrument, how do you know? Do you really know that for a fact? All you’re doing is reading a book that you believe wholeheartedly without any shred of evidence to back it up.

      Kirlian photography has been around since 1939. People with more open minds would have done more research into this, instead of dismissing it as but a trick, and I think that’s what we have here. Who knows what more research might produce!

      Lyn, I do not think that I chose to listen to that friend Ronnie of yours in the future. Inadequate Bible prophets the both of you are. That is not surprising, I chose not to listen to or read most of the “Bible prophets” of the fast 40 years, particularly Hal Lindsey.

      I greatest prophet of all was the founder of Christianity, when HE promised and prophesied a Jubilee in the synagogue in Nazareth when HE quoted Isaiah 61 into Luke 4. That day was the beginning of the Age of Pisces the Fish, Pisces will end in October 2016, the Jubilee must happen in August or September 2016.

      In concert with this event in 2016 will be a significant event on September 23, 2017. Look it up great things are about to happen, the leadership of my Baptist church is preparing members to be ready to evangelize the world. The bad times prophesied will be delayed by the Most High to facilitate this brief world wide evangelism.

      Photographing living things, and other objects, under different spectra, is not inherently offensive to any one worldview, and, depending on the wavelength, is used in many materialist sciences.

      Not that you will ever fix a kneejerk cynic, but it would be very useful to get higher resolution, on demand. The psychics, who Korotkov (?) could test for fraud, would see words, images, and discrete figures, in these same, blurry clouds, which you are barely showing. Many layers of detail, from front to back.
