Would you mind going further in-depth about your "energy resonance hypothesis?"
elysiumfireI'd be happy to relate an overview of my hypothesis, with emphasis on the more important points, but it is as I stated earlier, just an hypothesis.
Initially, I wanted to bed the core elements of NDE within a reality framework. The compulsion of this was that I like the idea of immersed consciousness as depicted during the 'life review' when encounters with beings-of-light took place. These episodes only occur in deep NDE, and are tutorial in their context. Rather like taking a multiple choice exam and then finding out what the answers were immediately after.
Everything that occurs to us throughout our life experience from cradle to grave is captured and assimilated as memory; according to NDE literature, nothing is lost, it is all captured for playback at the right time. Very similar to watching a film, images of one's life flash into impression in one's mind, and one can zoom in on particular scenes and relive them in total sensory recall of them, but with an added feature. We literally get to feel the emotions (good and bad) our actions, our non-actions, caused others to feel...we get to understand ourselves through the conscious experience others have of us. We feel the pain we caused them and the joy. Most people's experience of this would be moderate, but of course, they are many whom undergo extremes of it due to the life they led.
Decades of lay research later brought me to realise just how naive I was, post-mortem consciousness cannot be true, because once the physical body is destroyed, there is no power source to maintain all content of memory, and there are no sensory inputs available. Life after death is simply an illusion of wishful thinking. Nevertheless, my research enabled me to author something of a plausible hypothesis for consciousness during physical life, and in the process provide for some rather enlightening conclusions.
...I would love to hear it.
...do you feel memory is a derivative of consciousness?
