|And After Death?|

|Paper Summary||Text Colour-Conventions|
All things considered, I can see no reason to adopt the afterlife1 hypothesis. For me the arguments are overwhelming. The dying brain hypothesis, for all its shortcomings, does a better job of accounting for the experiences themselves. And it reveals not a false hope of the self surviving for ever but a genuine insight beyond the self. .Rejected arguments / hypotheses.
We are biological organisms, evolved in fascinating ways for no purpose at all and with no end in mind. We are simply here and this is how it is. I have no self and ‘I’ own nothing. There is no one to die. There is just this moment, and now this and now this.
