Brian Whitworth sent me a link to his latest chapter... "The Mystery of Consciousness"

https://brianwhitworth.com/chapter-6/

Lots of interesting scientific evidence, some I knew of, much I didn't. This latest chapter of his work concludes with...

Quote:For millennia mankind has wondered whether any part of us survives the death of the body? When a body dies, it dissolves back into nature at the atomic scale, so when the brain dies, does our consciousness also dissolve? If quantum reality never stops, it may do but coherence gains may also continue in the quantum bulk. Quantum reality continues regardless of physical events so who can say that coherence can’t do the same? Why would a universe maintained at great cost evolve consciousness gains that it can’t accommodate? It is more likely that the quantum coherence achieved carries on in some form.

Studying reality by the front-door of observation can take this line of thought no further but it seems that the end of science leads to the beginning of religion, as there have always been those who studied reality by the back-door of self-observation. That religion can be used for political control is well documented but equally every religion has had mystics, seers and sages who aimed to understand reality not control others. To understand a thing better it pays to refer to those with first-hand experience of it.
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring 
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
