What could be more interesting than an exploration of whether it is possible for consciousness to survive the physical death of the body? What mechanisms are at work that might allow this survival? Does consciousness survive as an intact whole, or is it only a partial, fractured survival?
The theory that consciousness can survive the death of the physical body and then go on to affect the physical environment by touching and moving things, making sounds, and being "seen" by the living suggests many things about the nature of consciousness. It also strongly suggests that the consciousness of a living person might be capable of affecting the physical environment in equally extra-ordinary ways.
Such an interesting...and often frustrating...subject to pursue.
