The Impact of the Natural Afterlife on Religion and Society

My article "The Theory of a Natural Eternal Consciousness: The Psychological Basis for a Natural Afterlife" was published May 2020 in the Journal of Mind and Behavior . The article claims a non-supernatural, i.e., scientifically supported, timeless, eternal consciousness, which can be a natural afte...

Re: Our Natural Eternal Consciousness: A Timeless Remnant in the Disembodied Mind

Age is obviously trying to continue the dialog with me that I shut down. I did so because Age 's comments continued to show his/her ignorance regarding the NEC and Age 's refusal to read the referenced article in order to educate him/her self. The article clearly points out that the existence of th...

Re: Our Natural Eternal Consciousness: A Timeless Remnant in the Disembodied Mind

So what substrate are you proposing this last experience is running on given the substrate it was running on is now non-functional? It is not running on any substrate. The term "running" implies a time span (i.e., it takes time to run), but the NEC is timeless. The NEC is a "snapshot" of an experie...

Re: Our Natural Eternal Consciousness: A Timeless Remnant in the Disembodied Mind

I could have asked the exact same question to you . Why do you seem to insist on me reading your many worded referenced article before you are willing to just answer my three little simple questions? ... Pity you could not have taken up the challenge in composition of explaining your hypothesis in ...

Re: Our Natural Eternal Consciousness: A Timeless Remnant in the Disembodied Mind

If you will not answer these three questions until I read something else, then so be it. 1. Why is it so important to you that it is true? 2. If it is at all true, then who cares? 3.What would it matter or affect if it was at all true? By the way your hypothesises 2 makes perfect sense, and is actu...

Re: Our Natural Eternal Consciousness: A Timeless Remnant in the Disembodied Mind

and you give no indication that you have even read the referenced article. My explanations have not seemed to have helped so far, and so I feel further dialog on my part will not be worth our time and effort. Well you must not have much faith in your own belief here. If you FULLy understood what yo...

Re: Our Natural Eternal Consciousness: A Timeless Remnant in the Disembodied Mind

In respond to Age: As I stated in my original post, "Hypothesis 2 has hitherto been overlooked, likely because of the orthodoxies of [Hypothesis] 1 ... and the difficulty for the living to view death strictly from the dying person's frame of reference, i.e., only that which is perceived by the dying...

Re: Our Natural Eternal Consciousness: A Timeless Remnant in the Disembodied Mind

But just as the last moment of consciousness does not remain when or after one falls asleep or passes out with general anesthesia so to would the last moment of consciousness not remain after, what you call, "death". Sure it remains! It is always there when you wake up, though as the referenced art...

Re: Our Natural Eternal Consciousness: A Timeless Remnant in the Disembodied Mind

Hypotheses 2 is an intriguing idea, of which i had not invisioned before, but, hypotheses 2 can also only be verified after death, which would also be impossible, correct? Section 4.2 in the referenced article discusses Testability, i.e., the verification and falsification, of the theory of a natur...

Our Natural Eternal Consciousness: A Timeless Remnant in the Disembodied Mind

Warning: Due to the terminology used above, this post may be readily dismissed as dealing with the paranormal. It does not! It does, however, require an open mind. A Dec 2002/Jan 2003 article in Philosophy Now , “Life After Death” by Steve Stewart-Williams, presents an argument FOR and AGAINST life...

Life After Death: Revisited

I am resurrecting a Dec 2002/Jan 2003 article, Life After Death by Steve Stewart-Williams (Philosophy Now, Issue 39), for some reanalysis in light of a new kind of afterlife. The article presents an argument FOR and AGAINST life after death, which I claim is now outdated because it does not take int...

Hello Everyone

I'm a retired computer science prof, very analytical, and hopefully always open-minded. In my retirement I enjoy studying and pondering the Big Questions rather than trying to keep up with the fast moving pace of computer technology.
