There is mountains of proof friend. We bury our dead. I think you're quite aware of this. Do you deny this?
Of course we bury or cremate bodies when they die. But this is certainly NOT proof that the fundamental being (self-aware consciousness) also dies.
Your standpoint of only being the body-mind necessarily would have you draw your conclusion that the fundamental being (self-aware consciousness) does
not survive the body's death. This is the conclusion that much of the world just blithely assumes because of the being's apparent identification with
the body-mind. But that does not mean this conclusion is therefore right. There are innumerable instances of world views being tossed out the window
because of new discoveries. So again, your absolute position about this surprises me.
We have discussed many times that we don't even know what a single object actually IS in reality. We only have a very limited perception of any given
object, but we usually rather naively assume that is what it IS. Clearly no limited perception is what an object actually is. You have agreed to this
in the past.
So how can you then assume that your limited perception and experience of something as complex as life, our body-minds, death, energy, awareness,
etc., justifies your absolute conclusion that our fundamental being or awareness itself, does not survive the death of the body?
