I agree but what was the compelling DMT evidence?
damn, you called me out - totally wishful thinking on my part - i know a guy who really died , for a few minutes, proper hospital flatline, and he said there was "nothing". like if you can remember cathode ray TVs, when you turned them off there would be a white dot that fades to nothing, that is what "death" was to that guy - but my near death experiences have shown me that ego can be let go, I'm not me, I could be Mixed Biscuits, "I" could be "anyone"., etc., so there is no evidence , only hope but what does it matter, we'll all find out someday

Presumably he was continuing to exist in being able to experience that nothingness

IMO there is too much evidence from too many angles pointing towards continued existence...way, way too much evidence

yeah, he fell in to what i'd call a k hole - i spilt rum all over thgis mac book and it is fucked so forgive my one liners, i could go about parrallel dimensions and transmigration of "souls" but not having a return / enter key really messes things up

Reading this atm. Still feels pretty fresh. I expected Davis to be a bit too credulous, but he's a clear-eyed observer. Stark contrast to a Sadie Plant paper I read recently which championed the internet as a force for women's liberation... Although, to be fair to her, it felt like it was also intended as a rallying cry and the historical thread charting women's contributions from Lovelace up to the web and relating it to weaving was great.

One of the ideas I liked in that Davis book was the internet as the mind of God.
