Quote from: Cavebear on August 20, 2019, 02:15:42 PMI imagine my death after life as "a book half read" or something like that. You really CAN'T conceive of true death, can you? I have no problem with it. Its like you were a swatted fly or stomped ant. Nothing, no future thoughts, no "somewhere to exist afterwards", "a cessation of existence", "you aren't around anymore", etc.... You really don't get it, do you?
Quote from: Baruch on August 20, 2019, 02:29:03 PMAnd all of that is dream material, waking dreams. You have no empirical first person experience of death. Sleeping isn't being dead. Which y'all claim to be irrelevant or stupid. I deny all Platonic claims, all "transcendent narrator" claims. I do have the imagination for it ... what would it be like if I were G-d. But that is just craziness to me. Demonstrated this in my "Ode to Bacchus" that I posted awhile back. I know what being a demi-god is like, because that is my actual experience and how I see the experience of other people. They can label it as "unicorns" if they want, that is the semantics. I have matured enough to decide for myself, what words mean. That is necessarily subjective of course.

Quote from: Cavebear on August 20, 2019, 02:42:26 PMI am reminded of the trainstation master in a small town of whom a dissatisfied customer demanded to speak to his "superior". He handed her his card. It read "Mayor, Chief Of Police, Stationmaster, Judge, and Fire Marshall". He said "Ma'am I have no superiors and damned few equals".
