Let's make this thread super convoluted.
« on: September 28, 2012, 03:12:28 PM »
I'll begin, and the next person can expand on it.

What if I woke up today but I was in the afterlife, or some sort of purgatory. Everything remains the same and in reality I was dead yesterday. How would I ever know if I was dreaming or not?

I shall meditate on this quandary.   The Great Platypus shall advise.
Das ist des Jägers Ehrenschild, daß er beschützt und hegt sein Wild, weidmännisch jagt, wie sich’s gehört, den Schöpfer im Geschöpfe ehrt.

Oh....you would know if you were dead.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

What if those meds triggered something neurologically and those storms I've been having recently are just my synapses firing off?

There are no synapses, only non-synapses of illusion. There is no is. There is no.  All is illusion. The world is no more, or never was. [insert quasi-Buddhist terminology here]  And that is the answer and non-answer, for how can there be an answer to a non-question derived from non-permanent-being? Heraclitus was right. The river.
