is another story altogether.

In the case where I am born without sensors, things can get pretty ugly. But if I am born with sensors, and then am forced to go without... I can at least crawl up into the realm of my imagination, which will be "alive and kicking", having been nurtured by my sensory gathered memories. In this case, I remember that I exist; and can at least experience thought and imagination...

You know how they say a blind man has better hearing because he is forced to "fall back" on his other senses and not rely so much on sight?? I wonder what lucid dreams a "non-sensory" individual may have...?? Can these dreams be classified as an afterlife if it was "death" that robbed us of our sensory organs? And if our physical body passes, but our dreams and imagination remains, can we still be said to exist? I think so....
