In April, 2018, I gave a talk on the evidence for some kind of postmortem survival of consciousness for Ashby Village, an East Bay organization that is part of a nationwide trend to help elders live out their lives in their homes.  It’s rewarding to meet regularly with people who may be classified as “elders,” but who are sharing and helping one another, not sitting around complaining about this that and the other…

I became aware of the evidence for some sort of survival of mind while I was still a teenager, part of my extensive reading trying to reconcile the best of science and the best of religion, but it was largely a theoretical and intellectual interest.  I intellectually knew that it would become a more interesting subject to me when I got a lot older, and that came true.  So I figured the members of Ashby Village would be interested in what I’d learned…and they were.

The lighting wasn’t as good on the video as I would have liked, and keeping it down to an hour kept me from going into the kind of detail about evidence that I like to think about, but it’s a useful introduction.  I don’t know one way or the other if we survive, but there’s certainly some interesting evidence pointing toward some kind of survival.  In a rational world, I think there would be a lot of research on it, instead of people just believing or disbelieving, but, as we all know, the world isn’t too rational.  And there’s lots of room for intelligent faith and hope…
