1.Supposing I was cloned,would my clone have my consciousness,that is, would he know he is/was me or would he have another consciousness.
2. Supposing I was hit with a big hammer and did not die but suffer from a serious amnesia loosing all of my memories. Now loosing my memories would include all my beliefs, how to put on my shoes, cloths or even how to read and write, meaning all my experiences gone.....does that mean i am no longer conscious of myself. Relating it to religion, lets say I was a christian and due to the amnesia I suffered, I do not even remember anything about my beliefs, how is God going to judge that?
I discovered lately that orgasm activates lymph nodes, could this be the reason why some people aren't susceptible to flu(cold) for a long period compared to others?
And just to make it clear, in case anyone gets hold of the wrong end of the stick...
I am a pacifist who is against all types of violence and oppression.
I had a difficult time a number of years ago and since then I have had frequent nightmares about the event. The nightmares are so real that when I awake I am terrified and my head hurts! If I am affected badly by this particular nightmare why does my brain choose to re-run it over and aver again?
What's your blog about and how do I access it?

My first guess was that it is something that you made up.
Help? Lmao. All you did in that thread was tell the patient what the competent Dr said they had was a fake disease, even though it's fact that it isn't with mountains upon mountains of evidence that proves it, then diagnosed them instead with something they almost certainly don't have lol. No, you helped no one in that thread at all. But I guess we should keep that fight there.
Go look through my post history and you'll see I gladly help others when the opportunity arises [take the CFS thread as an example].
And in this thread all you're doing is being highly offensive and waging a battle based on zero science and that is hurtful to so many, by claiming homosexuality is a choice. It is also a highly absurd position. They may not fully understand what is happening in nature that causes it to happen biologically, but they most certainly know it isn't by choice. And if it's one fact that stands out above all others by a mile that proves it, it's the 1-2% rate of success of conversion therapy. That squashes your argument on its face.
First of all, Every bit of evidence there is suggests that consciousness could not exist without the brain. On the other hand, there is ZERO evidence that it could.
Second of all, that paper was based on philosophy not science. It uses an extremely loose definition of sentience, defining every living cell as sentient. Based on that paper, every living cell that exists would have sentience that survives death. Are we to assume you believe every cell of every plant, bacteria, animal and otherwise, every cell goes to heaven in your view?
No, instead the paper is all about reincarnation. That upon death, the soul enters a new body. Is that what you believe?
And would that really be consciousness surviving? I've always said that if reincarnation existed, but our new mind had no memory whatsoever of our old, then isn't it really a distinction without a difference? Would it matter that it was the 'same' soul, if as far as it was concerned it was 'new'? Would that really be consciousness surviving at all??
Is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_paraphilias [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register] also "a choice made by free will" ? : why would anyone choose bizarre/dangerous/impractical/illegal sexual-activities ? . Answer: they don't have a choice about their orientation : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paraphilia#Causes [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register], ( but not necessarily genetic ).There's nothing biological in homosexuality; It is a sexual orientation driven by nature.
