Life after death (Part 3)
We live in a perfectly consistent universe. Reality appears to be infinitely stable.
It seems our minds are anthropically anchored by reality, which prevents anything weird from ever happening. Not once in all of history has there been a miracle of any sort whatsoever. Only delusions and illusions.
But why should anthropic anchoring continue to work when our consciousness becomes degraded, like in dreams, or for that matter any moment you're not paying perfect attention? Such non-rigorous perceptions are by definition outside science.
In that case, dreams might be a "gateway" to the infinitely vast universe of possible perceptions, of which our rational waking reality is but a tiny subset.
Things could get very strange. When you fall asleep at an unusual place you are more likely to dream about that place. Also, the dream is more likely to be unusual, like that one time I fell asleep at a party, then dreamt the place had turned impossibly into an empty house. In fact I still haven't woken up . . .
When your consciousness degrades as you die, it might come to resemble and "merge" with deeply strange patterns in the universe of possible perceptions. Even if death comes suddenly, this mental universe contains an infinite number of "closest continuers" - patterns of possible minds that get to experience a miraculous escape (quantum immortality) or even a resurrection or an actual afterlife.
Of course, almost all possible continuers are completely absurd and unstable.
