hinese scientists are hunting for the human soul and are building the world's most powerful MRI machine to find it.

中国科学家正在寻找人类的灵魂,并建造世界上最强大的核磁共振成像仪来寻找它。

The £100 million piece of equipment will look deep into the human brain to learn more about its complex structure.

这个价值1亿英镑的设备将会深入人类的大脑(比过去)更了解其复杂的结构。

Many people claim the soul is what separates a human from animals but evidence for its existence has never been found.

许多人声称有无灵魂是人与动物的区别所在,但从未找到灵魂存在的证据。

Scientists say the project 'will revolutionise brain studies' and may assist in creating future treatments for Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.

科学家们称此项目“将彻底改变大脑研究”,且可能有助于开发出未来治疗帕金森病和老年痴呆症的方法。

The £100 million piece of equipment will look deep into the human brain to understand its complex structure in pursuit of the human soul. Scientists say the project 'will revolutionise brain studies' (stock)

The project is being run by the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology.

该项目由中国科学院深圳先进技术研究院负责。

Its budget is greater than the world's largest telescope also in China called the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST).

它的预算比世界上最大的望远镜——同样在中国的500米口径球面射电望远镜(FAST)的预算还要多。

'It will show us a different world with phenomenon unseen before … maybe even the soul' one scientist told the SCMP.

一位科学家告诉《南华早报》:“它将向我们展示一个不同的世界,让我们看到前所未见的现象……甚至可能会看到灵魂。”

Another expert added: 'We may for the first time capture a full picture of human consciousness or even the essence of life itself.

另一位专家补充道:“我们可能会第一次捕捉到人类意识甚至生命本质的全貌。”

'Then we can define them and explain how they work in precise physical terms – just like Newton and Einstein defined and explained the universe.'

“然后我们就可以定义它们,并以明确的物理术语解释其运作原理——就像牛顿和爱因斯坦定义阐释宇宙一样。”

The machine has yet to be built but scientists say it would likely help in observing various chemicals such as sodium phosphorus and potassium.

这台机器目前尚未建成,但科学家们表示,它可能有助于观察钠、磷和钾等多种化学物质。

These elements are crucial in brain function and are involved with passing impulses and messages through the different neurons.

这些元素对大脑功能至关重要,与通过不同的神经元传递脉冲和信息有关。

Chinese scientists are hunting for the human soul and are building a cutting edge MRI machine to find it. It is designed to provide a resolution 1000 times greater than existing MRI scanners and will allow scientists  to study the role of chemicals in the brain (stock)

Understanding how they move and operate in greater detail can also be used to learn more about consciousness and cognitive diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer.

对这些元素如何移动运作的细节更了解,也可用来获悉更多关于意识和认知疾病,如帕金森病和老年痴呆症。

It is designed to provide a resolution 1000 times greater than existing MRI scanners which can visualise obxts up to 1 mm across.

该仪器的设计目的是提供比现有核磁共振扫描仪大1000倍的分辨率,从而能显示直径达1毫米的物体。
(原文如此,虽然世界上已经有0.5毫米的核磁共振仪了,虽然这种核磁共振仪直径只有10厘米,不能扫描人类。)

But not all in the scientific community the endeavour will be successful.

但是,并不是所有科学界的努力都会成功。

Professor He Rongqiao of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing was sceptical about the project.

北京中国科学院的赫荣乔院士对此项目表示怀疑。

He said: 'What is consciousness? There is not even a scientific definition.

他说:‘什么是意识?对此甚至都没有一个科学的定义。’

'If you can't even define it how do you know what you see is what you are looking for?'

“如果你都无法定义它,你怎么知道你看到的就是你在寻找的东西?”
