I was only responding to make the point that the hard problem of consciousness is only an issue for people who have a dualistic conception of consciousness.Yes for me our spirit is joined to our body and experiences through the body.
OBEs in NDEs show that blind people who have been blind since birth, in their OBEs can see. But nothing in that area is considered to be scientific. It seems that science has to discover spirit before it can speak about spirits, so it has areas such as this which are blind spots and coloured by the naturalistic presupposition.
Science cannot say whether God exists and cannot say that spirit does not exist. It's answers and research are about physical things that it can study but when reading it we can easily be convinced that science is telling the WHOLE truth about such things as consciousness etc. and that they are chemically based.
A human thinks.There is a correlation between the shrinking mass of the earth and the cooling of the sun, but they are not wholly causally related. I might be wrong, but from what I know the mass that's leaving the earth is mostly gas due to global warming, so I don't know why the sun's cooling would have relevance there. Can you show a causal link between the two?
Makes no sense? Hmmm.It's unbelievable and makes no sense
I could imagine I was a big basketball player too but why?Makes no sense? Hmmm.
I would be surprised that you can't "what if" and be creative, maybe role-play a bit in your own mind, to relate to the idea? Maybe suspend the disbelief like watching a movie or reading a book where reincarnation is real?
