It is within the realm of possibility that our brain only acts as a receiver of consciousness, much like a signal to a television. This would mean that when the brain is destroyed, our consciousness may continue to exist. But truthfully, no one can really know.

Sounds reasonable. But where does our consciousness go?

As a dota 2 player i can tell you that:
your body decomposes
your consciousness goes into "respawn wait mode"
you wait 10 - 100 seconds
your body respawns
your consciousness goes back into the newly respawned body

So here's my theory

When you talk to someone, be it in person or over the internet, what you're really doing is transferring information between one brain and another, meaning a person isn't really a body or a brain, it's the information flow between the 2. What I think happens when we die is that information dissipates, so whatever is our consciousness returns to the environment, in effect we return to the earth. As with everything like this, it's really impossible to tell because well, once you die... you're dead, fucktard.

Consciousness is just a complicated set of electrical and chemical reactions and surges in the brain. Once the brain ceases to function, that's it. Oblivion. You don't go to some Heaven or Hell. You don't float around like some ghost. You're just dead.

"Consciousness" is nothing mire than electrical impulses coursing through your brain.
When you die, the signals stop. And you cease to be "conscious".

Theoretically brain could be emulated on computer. In fact there's already a mouse brain model running on the Blue Gene supercomputer at 1/10th speed, dunno where did they go with that.
32 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-11 00:46
think of it as if it was your computer, once your power supply dies your cpu doesn't get new energy, thus the small amount of energy you have gets wasted and then cpu dies

same goes for your brain
your conciousness is basicly a stream of electric impulses, you cut down stuff that is needed for neurons to live and neurons will waste their sodium/potassium alongside neurotransmitters, the impulses dissipate throughout the neurons until they are stopped completely

that is death of conciosness, it ceases to exist afterwards

conciousness is also a direct product of neuron arrangement, you arrange them differently or some just stop working and your consciousness changes along with them

Tl; dr:
your brain a cpu
no more power
conciousnes ends
neurons damijed
conciousness changed

The level of consciousness depends upon the complexity of the brain. A dog is conscious, but as far as we know, they aren't able to sit and dwell upon death like humans. They instinctively strive not to die, but they don't sit and think about whether they'll run around in Doggo Heaven once they go. Microbes don't have brains.

I mean IMO there's a spectrum of consciousness, and it's complex and varied. I don't think that it all ends when we die, I think the part of our consciousness that is "anon" dissipates and becomes a part of everything else

>>2 When i was 19 after leaving college, I got chronic depression for no reason. I turned to religion and it did not take me long to realise it was all man made, to control the masses and give people comfort.

I would describe myself as agnostic / deist as nature is so complex. It does actually seem to be intelligently designed, just not for life itself.

When I hear testimonies about ghost and dreams, despite not proving a god it does bring the possibility of a spirit world. But again, this is always anecdotal accounts. Science shows that when brain chemistry can change and we can hallucanite these things perhaps when we are grieving.

I like to believe that the purpose of life is to give existence a meaning itself. Perhaps in another realm we live forever, But image what that would feel like. Without fear, there is no appreciation and without sadness you can see that you're happy. Some suffer, so others can appreciate existence and it continues. That is just a philosophy.

But either way, consciousness as you already know is present in all life forms, in the brain and without it, you and your memories will cease to be. You are most likely just going to just go for a long sleep, because that is essentially all being dead is. Billions of years times nfinite energy according to the 1st law of thermodynamics, will give you a good possibility of being alive again. But I suspect that you will be on a different planet.

Sorry >>2, the rollercoaster has to stop.

It disappears, much like how a Monet picture ceases to be a Monet picture after it has burnt. Once the electrical signals in your brain stops, you cease to be sentient. It isn't rocket science, it's neuroscience.
47 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-11 01:40

The source of the consciousness is the brain, or rather, the electrochemical reactions/signals it produces.

As for what happens to your consciousness after death, it fizzles out and ceases to exist as your brain ceases to have access to oxygen due to your respiratory and circulatory systems shutting down. Moreover, your body rots away, brain and all, so that's very, VERY dead indeed.

you arent talking about consciousness then you are talking about memory. memory is stored in the brain so yes it dies when the brain does. you consciousness is present always and forever. consciousness is to memory what a screen is to a movie. youre watching a movie and there are a lot of pictures that move across that screen but there is always only one screen only with consciousness its just infinite empty space. but that empty space possesses and intelligence. thats probably why you keep confusing it with memory.

well the first thing to understanding consciousness is being in a receptive state. you cant take off a Chinese finger trap by angrily pulling at it you have to relax and it will fall away on its own. one cannot describe consciousness in plain talk so thats why metaphors and things are often used. like i said consciousness is the screen on which the movie of life takes place. in order for matter to exist it needs space to inhabit. consciousness is the space that all of the universe inhabits. but to say it is just empty space wouldn't be giving it enough credit, there is intelligence in the space. its like its electrically charged. its the source of creation. its the very fact we can have this conversation. you are it so you dont have to worry about possessing it or losing it. you are it and are always it. sometimes though you forget and imagine you are the pictures on the screen. im not trying to undermine your definition of consciousness i promise, you are it so what i say doesnt affect that fact

Good post, it's like how the entire universe is made of math. I also find it interesting how consciousness collapses the wave function in the double slit experiment. It's as the universe doesn't exist without an observer but yet the observer was created by the universe. Self aware universe trying to understand itself.

An a old thread (last week!) in the archive /lounge/ Mr Anon asked for ideas on how he could stop eating too much. He got a ton of replies and one of them was "don't eat less, eat as much meat, fruits and salad as you wish. Just leave out extra sugar, bread and noodles" iirc.

When I was shopping today (two free weeks, finally some time to do things slowly and relaxed, like shopping at noon), I decided to give it a go. Only salad and meat. I bought a little bit of cheese, because I have some leftover bread that I want don't want to throw away.

So, in the unlikely event that I like it and keep that diet, /4ct/ would have had a positive impact on me. Guess it wont happen. But maybe it will. I already quit smoking, all alcohol, drugs, coffein and kept this up for 5 years so far. It might work with better food as well...

Something very weird happened to me today

Im not a tough guy but i have decent pain tolerance. Im used to falls and injuries and shredding my hand up on glass one night i wrapped it in a shirt and continued partying. Im alo used to leg and joint injuries due to gymnastics,it hurts but nothing a week or two wont heal.Today i was walking by my house in slippers,checking my phone and tripped on a 2 inch step. I kinda stepped on all mz fingers eith all my weight and heard a sound like someone ripped apart a young piece of wood. I was like welp fuck it it happens ill walk it off. I realised its not gonna stop to hurt so i went to tell my family how i injured my foot. They freaked out i sat downand there was almost no visable injury but i was in a fucking shitload of pain and 5 min later i started to feel weird and nausious and everything was going black. I almost passed out it was the worstfucking feeling ever. A couple hours later my leg is fine i dont think i will need any medical attention ill lay it off for a week or teo. So wait why did i pass out 5 min after i injured my leg?? Wtf is that
