work?no thanks i'm sick of being stuck around people that dont really appreciate what you do for them----i'm retired from the rat race now and have no desire to return to it.i've got enough work to do shopping/cleaning up the neighbours garbage that they dump on us and trying to maintain our home to be fit to live in.if i could move to an uninhabited island that was in the middle of the pacific and hot all year round and had all the resources needed to keep one alive--i'd go there and leave this computer behind and no forwarding address.

yeah so here's the thing....the human brain, as i thought would be common knowledge, uses a ridiculously small amount of its own personal RAM...both our input and output capabilities are infinately broader than is typically used in one lifetime....even surface level investigation into neurology, psychology or quantum physics would tell you this. Based on that information, I am suprised to see so many comments not only here but on another blog about "immortality" as well that pose this question as to whether or not the brain could sustain memories and knowledge for so long....the answer is quite simply and positively, YES. not only for decades and/or centuries but for millennia upon millennia. And lets not forget the intangible, unobservable observer inside our bodies that we call souls. theoretically, if our soul experiences many lifetimes whether in different bodies or in one, we retain those experiences in the form of wisdom and depth of thought. you can always tell an old soul from a youth. and if a soul, which is the observer is eternal, then so must be the experience which we would call 'memory'. And even one more level into the rabbit hole, in which we have seen the capability of a single consciousness and/or soul, and we now become aware of a collective consciousness which dwarfs the thought of eternity and infinancy of the individual. Then we come to the omnipotent source of all life and creation from which flows life freely...if we choose to embrace this then eternity becomes reality, physicality loses all meaning and dominance, death becomes obsolete and we break free from our conditioning...
