I assure you we will not be meeting 'at the end'.



Ouch!


I get, and already understood, frankly, that you don't have any interest in such a shared .. koinonia, and it's saddening in a way, that lack of friendship or the act of friendship in a spirit of mutuality to be so rudely rebuked. Noted.


You're mistaking my response as something personal, which was not intended. I was referring to the lack of existence of a god for the reason we will not meet at the end of time


If you consider the big crunch a possibility, or alternate universes, then you cannot deny the possibilty of meeting your opponent here in the end.


I do consider it a possibility. If by matter alone that they were referencing, then sure, our matter would eventually be closer than it is now. If they were referring to conciousness, then I would say that would be an impossibility if they chose death instead


I guess science will need to figure out what consciousness is lest we are like you and ascribe it to deity.


It's certainly something science needs to work on. I do like that Kerzweil posits relative percentages of understanding of the human brain in accordance to a timeline (I don't recall if I put those in the OP).

An understanding of conciousness would be a massive scientific achievement
