What's also interesting to me, as the gentleman says at the end of the video, the brain generates electro-chemical information. What entity is transforming this information into our conscious experience? When we consciously see something, how is this visual brain-data represented in our consciousness as an image? How does our brain create light within our consciousness when there is no light in our skulls, for instance? As the gentleman says, who is seeing? As consciousness is conscious of itself, is this consciousness-of-itself a separate entity from raw consciousness? If consciousness is an ... [More]

You have used the word "conscious" so many times it no longer makes sense. Lol, I was conscious of that when I wrote that post. You just have to sort it out. I had to.

Imagine if you will a programmed virtual world. The characters within this virtual world would have a number of pre set values and possible actions indicating this characters unique existence within this world. If given millions of pre-set values and a localized form of memory for each character, these rendered beings may begin to resemble conscious individuals. However it is at this point that we must remember that a more complex , powerful , and in most programs separate A.I server exists. This A.I. server does not completely define the existence of the character in this world, the millions ... [More]

Interesting idea, Khrono. It brought to my mind Arthur C. Clarke's novel, 'The City and the Stars': The City and the Stars takes place a billion years in the future, in the city of Diaspar. In Diaspar, the entire city is run by the Central Computer. Not only is the city repaired by machines, but people's lives are created by the machines as well. The computer creates bodies for the people of Diaspar to live in and stores their minds in its memory when they die. At any time, only a small number of these people are actually living in Diaspar, the rest sleeping in the computer's memory banks. htt... [More]

The whole NDE experience may be real...but as for consciousness surviving the death of the brain....bunkem.

You heard it from him plain and simple....282 patients surviving cardiac arrest after being dead equal amounts of time...did not report having any conscious thoughts or memory. This pretty much answers the question right there. The guy is selling a book..he knows those 280 rubbish the concept.Why? If consciousness survives death and is seperate from brain function..then everybody would report NDE. But commonsense tells you that this concept is tosh....just look at people who have dementia, some form of brain damage...they are gone,memories included...erased. This could not happen if consciousn... [More]
