Consciousness, a known unknown

On 29 December 2022, Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant published an interesting interview on consciousness with Dutch cardiologist Pim van Lommel. In his view, "there is no life after death, but there is continuity of consciousness" (my translation). His opinion would imply that our Data-Info is conscious.

Theory of Everything (3)

Last Thursday, I made the drawing below. Before, I did "see" the various dots but I wasn't able to connect these dots inside my mind. The house analogy suddenly dawned upon me, last Thursday.

There's a Dutch saying that translates like: a sparrow is a bird but a bird is not a sparrow. I was reminded of that saying when I read the following: "it's easier to turn power into money than it is to turn money into power" (Axios Markets, #1). The best example might be former Chinese tech billionaires (eg, Nikkei) Money is 1 of the 3 belief systems in the Power...
