I just started a thread saying the above in a FB group called Human Consciousness Project. Someone mentioned "terminal lucidity". Have you heard about this phenomenon Phil?
What is FB? ETA: never mind -- facebook, right? I don't use social media, so sometimes I'm a dolt.
Sorry about JREF. We used to have some excellent conversations there. I left a few years ago because I couldn't take the attitude of many posters any longer. It seemed to have gone downhill over time. But, I also agree, we should leave this for another place as intro threads are not the place to trash another forum.
