For help on how to follow a comic title,

True. I encountered that recently. I assume you gave it a Hardy laugh.
And this continuous when there is no brain activity whatever? When your EEG has flatlined? This is not mere unconsciousness; there is no electrical activity in the brain at all. That was made clear in the video.
It’s actually quite profitable, especially when I mark it as “Artisanal.”
I have let the Spanish Inquisition know that you’re expecting them. They claim you aren’t.
The cop in panel 5 gives it away: the killer was a .38. Alfie put out an APB, and the .38 was found in a nearby bar. It had wanted revenge against the victim for firing it recently. Sure enough, it was two shots low, but a pair of glasses on the counter showed it was about to reload.
I’m not shrinking at all, thanks to my brilliant strategy of sleeping bat-style in my closet. I got rid of my bed, too, giving me more bookshelf space, and the only downside is that I had to structurally reinforce the closet and I must periodically replace the the junk mail I use to line the closet floor.
The problem is that the NDEs in question can be fact-checked: the people experiencing them knew things they had no way of knowing, especially given that their brains were “shut down” at the time. This strongly implies that consciousness occurs even in the absence of brain function. While the brain does affect consciousness, it’s like a car and driver: the car (especially any mechanical problems) can limit the driver’s actions and accuracy in driving, but the driver is still not merely an epiphenomenon of the car.
That thing looks deadly!
Thank you for actually providing an argument for your view, as well as a better description of that view. There are some counterarguments, however, such as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhqLc6GPu-U I am not a fan of the topic—in fact, I tend to dismiss it reflexively—but the argumentation seems sound and is relevant. There are other ways to support mind/body dualism, but they are a bit more technical and somewhat out of field for me. J. P. Moreland is a good general source.
