Yes.

It is called block theory of time or eternalism. Basically the past, present, and future all exist and continue to exist. Supposed you died. Your consciousness would not cease to be. Why? Because it exists in the past and the past is every bit valid and real as the present. There is a point in space-time where a 10 year old kid is worrying about what happens when he dies.

Wow!!! Never knew it was already called something, eternalism... Thank you, he was pretty scared.

No it's not called "eternalism" except by religious idiots. It was already covered in the video I posted at the beginning of this thread, Blowjob.
You explain how someone in the present dimensions of space-time can have access to another position and direction in space-time, and then maybe it's a worthwhile concept.

Hello there ^^

I feel obliged to intervene here because I want people to be open to the possibility that the brain does not produce coubsciousness but rather manifests it in a limited (senses) form. The counsciousness you are a part of is infinite. See for example Dr.John Hagelin explaining transcendental meditation and quantum mechanics.

Let me juice this up by adding that every atom in your brain is actualy recycled in about 1year or a bit more so it cannot be the matter in there that does all the magic ^^,

This leads to the belief that without that matter, counscious awareness could still be there.

Cheers.

Keeping an open mind is not the same as being gullible.

Quote:The counsciousness you are a part of is infinite. See for example Dr.John Hagelin explaining transcendental meditation and quantum mechanics.

Whenever anybody links quantum anything to consciousness it is a pretty safe bet that they are just peddling woo. From the wikipedia article on Hagelin: Hagelin believes that his extended version of unified field theory is identified with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's "unified field of consciousness", a view that is rejected by "virtually every theoretical physicist in the world".

Quote:Let me juice this up by adding that every atom in your brain is actualy recycled in about 1year or a bit more so it cannot be the matter in there that does all the magic ^^,

Even if every atom were replaced yearly (and I'd need a citation for that), that doesn't mean that the physical brain can't be the basis for our experience of consciousness. Parts on machines wear out and are replaced all the time but that doesn't mean that the work done by the machine wasn't done by those parts. Replacing the heating element of a toaster doesn't mean that all the toast made before that event was actually browned by the universal toasting fairy.

Quote:This leads to the belief that without that matter, counscious awareness could still be there.

Only if you ignore the actual evidence and accept completely irrelevant arguments like that.

Sorry, I just looked it up and saw that it was a philisophical term. Didn't mean for it to get religious
