Chinese scientists are hunting for the human soul and are building the world’s most powerful MRI machine to find it.
The £100 million piece of equipment will look deep into the human brain to learn more about its complex structure.
Many people claim the soul is what separates a human from animals, but evidence for its existence has never been found.
Scientists say the project ‘will revolutionise brain studies’ and may assist in creating future treatments for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
The project is being run by the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology.
Its budget is greater than the world’s largest telescope, also in China, called the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST).
‘It will show us a different world with phenomenon unseen before … maybe even the soul,’ one scientist told the SCMP.
