See, even not so narrow minded people from this very list understand that
consciousness is non-local and more fundamental than body and brain ...
Or Tom's book starting at page 113 ...
"I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from
consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk
about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness." --
It's what Hindus, Buddhists, Sufis, native Indians, Shamans, etc. have been
telling us for ages ... and Fermi's Paradox is a symptom of being ignorant
to the fundamental nature of this physical reality.
... I stopped reading at "So you are saying I can stop playing Super Mario
Land and navigate in the super-set of Super Mario Land?"
