    I have insights, I go with them. First comes stretching, and far-reaching unprovable thoughts, then comes proof. Sometimes much, much later.
    you'll need to stretch a hell of a lot to prove that shit.

    Is an isolated atom considered something which has life?

    No, I leave that kind of circular semantics to NTs who lack insight.

    sure thing.

    I personally went through most of the rationals for the soul (so dualism in general) and none makes any sense, it seems like people want make the conclusion before starting thinking and then choose the convenient eye patches to only see the answer they want to see. I find it a bit sad.

    Nice baiting.

    But how can you think you know everything when we know so very little about the Universe? We don't even fully understand antimatter and how it holds systems together. Black holes, other stuff. We humans don't live in some closed system here on Earth, unremoved from the very thing that created us.
