Very interesting exposition on death, consciousness and the notion of “being” dead. Again an attempt at trying to get around the pointlessness of a life that simply ends after the death of the body by distracting with notions of the preciousness of a short life and the awesomeness of the universe.
Very clever idea that the spaces we imagine to exist between conscious existence do not exist so therefore consciousness is eternal without interruption. The perfect materialists version of an eternal, ever present consciousness devoid of any supernatural baggage. Very interesting concept though that was really fun and challenging to think about.
