    If we cannot measure something does that mean it does not exist?

    How do you know the giant isn't a midget in that world?

    My Father was a great believer in this stuff until he 'died' for some minutes in an ambulance. His experience was that there was nothing.

    I've known a few people who were resuscitated from a near death experience, and that's what they all told me. No memory of the event whatsoever. Of course, that is a mere handful of anecdotes. It proves nothing. Then again, neither does a person describing a supernatural experience after having an NDE prove anything.

    Of course not. That was my point. We have the technology to detect brain activity, but that is not a direct measurement of consciousness.

    I'm curious if they can detect brain activity in some of the living.
    Thanks from Iolo

    Yeah. A lot of old people say they're not afraid of death. You should see how scared they look in a bank robbery, begging the robbers not to shoot them.
