In Guide #2 we ask many questions. This is your space to respond to any questions you have about consciousness… theorize about the potentiality of near-death experience… or comment on your own perspective about the fundamental nature of awareness (agree? disagree? all viewpoints are welcome).
Some questions you might respond to include:
- Are our brains capable of absorbing information when we are unconscious, or between life and permanent death?
- If the brain maps experiences of self using neural networks to record, retain and recall, where are those memories encoded – in the fat, water and protein of our bodies?
- Why do we persist in thinking the physical world has nothing to do with the mental world, as if the choices the observer “self” makes has no impact?
- What if our physical world and sense of self isn’t simply from the interaction of subatomic particles but from a primordial awareness or energy field from which everything originated?
- What gives us so much confidence in science above everything else?
- Do you consider the brain to be a receiver or a generator?
Welcome to the discussion!
