Quote from: Shiranu on December 18, 2022, 10:44:56 PMSeveral rules about how they are to be treated humanely and freed after time though - all things considered for 600 B.C. and older laws, not too bad.
Quote from: Hydra009 on December 19, 2022, 12:58:14 AMI have news for you - the no-slavery stuff is pretty boilerplate. As for the commandment to not "rob openly", that leaves a little bit of wiggle room, dontcha think? Do you think? Because thinking people don't really need lists of rules with everything spelled out and wrapped up in a neat little bow - a life of unthinking servitude to lists - they simply understand the broad idea not to harm people - to value others and others' wellbeing. (If you can't explain it simply, you don't know it, as the adage goes) Societies can draw up their own very specific law codes from there because there's a story for every sign and a sign for every story. Chapter, Section, Subsection.And if I read you right, you say that they don't follow *most* of the bad stuff. The obvious inference is that there is some stuff - probably more than you think - that is indeed bad. If I were to draft a set of laws and 90% of it is fine, but 10% of it is absolutely barbaric, where do you think people's attention would be? (If I were to build a ship that is 90% sailworthy, could I reassure the sailors that their ship is *mostly* okay?)

It is difficult to get empirical evidence on things involving the consciousness like near death experiences, shared death experiences, astral projection, dreams, etc (at least as far as we know with public science...I suspect there is secret tech to record consciousness remotely). As for AP, I could refer you to the cia research paper on it when they did the Monroe institute hemisync using binaural beats where they AP'd and encountered reptilians or the many people that AP as a hobby and meet up together in the astral realm. Or the work of dr Eben Alexander who was an atheist neurosurgeon that had NDE while his neocortex wasn't working (in coma from meningitis) so he came up with theory of external signal for consciousness. For shared death experiences where healthy people around the dying person all share the death experience (like an NDE), look up the work of Dr Raymond Moody. With these, you can't just say the experience is product of dying brain because healthy people share the experience.
