why death may not be the end of consciousness?

the brains identity and memory literally is electromagnetic pulses and charges. so…
a. those charges are somehow loaded on advanced technology, 20 years down the road
b. that energy (not spirits or “nature” energy, real scientific electromgnetic pulses) retains its form, as the law of conservation energy states, and mybe joins the magnetic sphere

im 17. ill see nanotechnology and gene therapy.
but if your older; dont dispair!!! science and the laws os mathematics MAY allow for life after death. just take vitamins and hope u live long enough to see new technology

  • I realized that I would never stop thinking when I was about 8 or 9 years old and I was looking at the night sky.
    Mathematics also allows for the invisible.No?

  • I would say that is perhaps an eventual possibility. IF it’s possible, it’s going to be a long long time. Not in our lifetimes. Very ‘blue sky’, as we say in the possibility business. 8^)

    Anyway I’m not sure I’d want to live on as a pattern of bits and bytes in a memory chip. What fun would that be?

    Still interesting to think about, though.

    Think about this: We need a tiny amount of iodine every day, like a millionth of a gram. Every day. When we don’t get it, there are changes in our personality. The very person we are, how we behave, how we feel about things, changes. Now if a millionth of a gram of iodine can have that change on us, how could we possibly survive as ourselves, our unique personalities and all that, with the whole brain gone?

  • We’d still have to be able to emulate the structure of the brain and be able to recreate it from a living person.
