I have never seen any teaching on this from "mainstream science." I did not know they had defined what makes You "You." So how can they decide when "You" cease to exist?


I found this post in reply to a post of mine dated November 8, 2003 on page 2 of these archives. I thought it merited being brought to the top.

Mainstream science teaches that your consciousness is confined to your brain. I can reference this from the latest issue of ThemScientist.

The medical measure of death is when there are no longer measurable brain activity. That is the scientific definition of death. Therefore there is no longer any consciousness or any measurable effect of consciousness like speech. It is very clear who you are in science. Otherwise you could not be tested, either medically or mentally.

My question to Mike is: Why do you wait 20 days to respond and then respond so that no one is likely to see it?
