  1. A self-driving car perceives its surroundings through cameras. The car's computer reconstructs a virtual reality based on its perception. It puts itself (the car) into this virtual world. Now the car is the context and also the content of this virtual world. When this car burns to the ground, does its very primitive (insect-like) "consciousness" continue and get reborn as another self-driving car? If it doesn't, then why would the human consciousness continue?
  2. Yeah, I agree with this. The now and consciousness is the same thing because I can't find any difference between the two. I don't see it that way. The body (the brain) never really disappears, it's never dead. Sometimes consciousness is not conscious of the body, but that doesn't mean that the body completely disappears. The body disappears only from consciousness, not from the persistent level of physicality. You can easily prove it by filming yourself while sleeping. While sleeping, the body disappears from consciousness, but the camera footage proves that the body was there the whole time on the physical level. If you could show me a case where someone showed consciousness while having a dead body, that would be proof that consciousness continues after physical death.
  3. I meant eternal in a temporal sense (if that makes any sense). I don't remember always existing, so I can't be sure that I'll always exist. The now is ever-present, but from my perspective, it started when this body was born (I don't remember the now "existing" before that), so it might end when this body dies.
  4. It's more like a time management problem. Playing video games is not the issue. But when you play video games, you don't spend time with meditating, or exercising, or socializing, or doing house chores, or sleeping, or building your career. I don't play video games now, because I want to retire early so that I can spend the rest of my life playing video games
  5. Computers also know if something exists in their internal storage, but they are not generally aware of anything. For me, awareness is more like an understanding of existence. And if I could explain what understanding means, I would have already created AI
  6. Don't get me wrong, I know that the consciousness that I am is invulnerable to any experience. Content cannot touch the context. But I cannot see any proof in the now for consciousness being eternal.
  7. Great question, welcome to the forum! I'm not sure about the proper answer for this, but I can tell you how I approach it: When I meditate, I focus on pure consciousness by letting go of every content of consciousness. When I'm living my daily life, I practice radical acceptance by lovingly embracing every challenge of the day, knowing that nothing can touch what I really am. But to do this, I need the meditation to know the I. And to have time to meditate, I need to do my daily tasks, earn money, and so on. And to do both, I don't really have any time left for free-flow, only when others invite me to flow with them.
  8. Sorry, I don't understand it. Can you explain it? Or it's not cool to ask for an explanation of a poem?
  9. Every ego wants admiration, mine is not an exception. But this wasn't my main motivation. Although, you sensed it correctly, I do have an ulterior motive: I want a revolution against spiritual beliefs because I think this is the only way to face the fears that they try to cover.
  10. This is a side effect of Leo's style. Leo doesn't really teach open mindedness or the importance of "I don't know". I think deep down he knows that he doesn't know. But not knowing is not something that the YouTube audience wants to hear about. I'm hopeful that in the future he will have another awakening that faces him with the importance of being honest about not knowing.
  11. You need the block only if your love is not unconditional. I love Reality unconditionally, even if I am temporal in it.
  12. From the perspective of consciousness, there's no besides / outside of consciousness. Because everything we're conscious of is inside consciousness. Exactly, the only thing I wanted to trigger is the sense of I don't know.
  13. Why would consciousness depend on the content of consciousness? It's getting more and more obvious that you're expressing your philosophy, not knowledge.
  14. I'm not being poetic. I'm saying that I notice when there's silence. Don't you? Saying that consciousness in nothingness is like saying that space is the absence of matter. You're saying: "if you remove every matter from space then nothing remains, therefore space is nothing". Don't you see the flaw in this logic?
