Why we don't want to die: At death, we stop Experiencing.  And we don't want to stop Experiencing.  Even if we have a copy of ourselves with all our memories nearby, if we die,  WE stop experiencing.  At that point, the copy becomes another Self, not Me.

Consciousness is software. There is no reason to think that it's intrinsically impossible for continuity in a copy to meet/exceed the kind of continuity we live every time we sleep and wake. Imagine a perfect copy of the connectome recreated. The consciousness that emerges in the copy we justifiably feel like they are still the same person. Both perspectives are true. A self dies, and a self continues.

Berlinsky is a non-believer who believes the fear of hell enforced by religious belief is the only thing that keeps humanity at least somewhat on the straight and narrow.  There is no evidence for this belief anywhere in human history since all of our ancestors were hunters and gatherers.

"There is no evidence for this belief anywhere in human history"

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?! Plenty of Ancient cultures all over the world had the idea of punishment in the afterlife.

Also, around the hunter/ gatherer era, we didn't really have a complete writing system in place... we really have hardly any idea what they believed in..So exactly what kind of evidence are you expecting to find in regards to being able to determine their beliefs?

D'Souza picked some doozies.  Prime examples of the following quote: "You have to be an intellectual to believe such insanity."

Using the word "it" for a process or even a nested set of 26 processes shouldn't be a problem.  We use "it" all the time as a catchall for a number of things, including things we don't even think of as things.  He's "badgering the witness."

If you look at the front of a tapestry but can't see the back.
You can see an image on the tapestry.
Identifying that it's an image doesn't tell you how the image was made.
looking at the back will give some insight teasing apart the fibers will give some insight.
Taken all together top to bottom you may learn to enough to make it with a little luck and trial and error you might learn to make it better or something new and different that suits another purpose.

I believe consciousness is like the image to look behind is like brain imaging and EEGs and the fibers are like cellular neurology.

I'd like to comment on a piddly little thing that simply grates on me.  The word is "coercion" not "coheresion."  Violent force coerces.  It doesn't cohere.

A 9-minute drum solo.  Who could get away with that?  Buddy Rich.  And he made it fabulous.  Thanks for posting.

I saw Zep in action on their last American performance  ever in America. Bohnam is one of the few who can hold a candle to Buddy;...... But Buddy is the reason so many of the early rock groups had truely great drummers.......Ian Paice is another.

If 2001: A Space Odyssey had this stuff in the scene after Dave Bowman fell into the monolith, it would've been the ultimate trip.

Lennox is making the argument from morality.  However, there's a very large problem with that.  IF there is a very powerful, or perhaps an all-powerful creator God, this God would be morally responsible for every single thing that exists or occurs in the creation, including nasty natural events and human immorality.  This leads directly to both the Problem of Evil and the freedom of the universe.  The Problem of Evil has never been solved by any Christian theologian and cannot be because of the disjunction between the nature of what is clearly an unmoral universe and the purported morality of the creator God.  And then the freedom of the universe and the freedom of the human beings therein: Both are utterly impossible under the creation by an all-powerful God.  That God automatically swamps any possibility of any sort of freedom.  Here the Presbyterians got it right within the context of their theology.  Predestination.  EVERYTHING must be predestined by the act of the all powerful God.  Everything is scripted.  God has a plan for you, and you have no choice but to fulfill that plan.  The universe is a 4-dimensional eternal block of space-time, completely and forever arranged as it was is and will be by the all-powerful God.  I'm convinced all of these problems emerge from fundamentally flawed mental modeling of reality by theologians and Christian believers.  And I don't believe there is any solution, except to give up on such mental models.

+John Sutton Is your premise free will is non-existence since all matter interacts accordingly?

Story
Tagline
Freelance Essayist, Singulatarian, Philosophical Agnostic, and Die-Hard Hayekian Conservative who knows the Revolution will only occur through accelerating technology, not through politics.
Introduction
After 26 years of working for a newspaper clipping company, I moved back to my home town.  I then moved up to the Brainerd Lakes area.  I am now working part time for the public school district, and am working as a freelance writer, writing articles and essays on a variety of subjects.  I am very interested in all topics related to self-organizing systems, accelerating technology and science, political philosophy, and the technological Singularity.
Bragging rights
Was a finalist in the Great American Think-Off philosophy essay contest of 1996. The question was, "Does God Exist?" My answer was no. Link: http://www.scribd.com/doc/3290597/Design-Lies-in-the-Eye-of-the-Perceiver
