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: Religious Interpretations.

All ''words'' are concepts. The apparent split between a non-conceptual reality and conceptual is an illusion. The ''looked upon'' is the ''looker'' in the same exact instant. There is no split or separation HERE/there. Know that in the truest sense....I am not responding to you at all. I respond t...

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 ... Yes this is very true. Hypothesis 2 MAY have been overlooked because of hypothesis 1. But that in itself could NOT and does NOT make hypothesis 2 a...

Anyone still insist, foreign policies of the West or any other disfavors to Muslims are the PRIMARY reasons for the terrible and evil acts of SOME Muslims who are inspired by the commands in the Quran?

Re: Religious Interpretations.

How do you separate myths and fables from facts and truths? How do you know if your reinterpretations of the Bible or the Koran are not merely just a rehashing of ancient myths and fables as well? Also, regarding the human condition, one can find as much truth in Grimms Fairytales of Mother Goose re...

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: The Ontological God is the Ultimate God.

C. Therefore a square-circle is empirically possible? The most notable ones who claim they have ultimate knowledge are theists who insist God exists as real empirically. Theism is based on faith, i.e. belief without proof nor justified reasons. The others are the New-Agers who toyed with woo-woo, e...

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...

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

A Dec 2002/Jan 2003 article in Philosophy Now , “Life After Death” by Steve Stewart-Williams, presents an argument FOR and AGAINST life after death. It identifies one kind of afterlife as that in which “survival takes place outside the body … as a disembodied mind” and argues in “The Case Against S...

Re: The problem with religious critique, logic, reasons, truth-seeking, argumentation, and debate.

No need to carry on this conversation. You clarified nicely. Thank you for the feedback. But I am still curious as to who and/or what you consider/found/realized is thee Self. You're asking what I consider Self to be? A definition? Source. Stillness. Timeless. Undefinable. Potential. Peace. Perfect...
