OP - you're on the right path, but keep learning, researching and exploring with a mind that's open to more possibilities.
Yes - i'm a fan of the H+/Transhuman movement, and follow Ray Kurzwail's work on these subjects, as well as other medical breakthroughs which are
rapidly progressing our society to lifespans of 500+ years old. Oh and to the people who say that we won't see this in our lifetime, you're wrong.
The only way we won't see this technology breaking through in the next 20 - 40 years, is if our planet blows itself up first - which at the moment is
a very likely possibility.
No to the OP again, I do agree that our personalities, experiences, and memories are the result of biological components. However there is an energy
(electricity) which these components require to run, and to me - that electricity - is the spirit. One which is shared by everything that lives.
That energy comes from somewhere, and seems to go somewhere when life and death occurs in living creatures. I believe that what most people consider
the "spiritual plane" is the higher dimensions of our reality. The dimensions which can only be explored through mathmatics.
