    Default Sensors interested in spirituality?

    My #1 myers briggs trillion dollar question...

    Do you know, or have heard of, sensors who are also interested in spirituality?

    I have an ISFJ sister who prefers long, deep, on-1-on, or small group conversations.
    She just got a book about mindfulness and is very into it.

    She seems to not totally grasp my rabbit hole ideas, but she's very interested.

    Considering sensors are a sizeable population, yes. There are sensors interested in spirituality...

    There are some that are and some that arent's, same as Ns really. I'm personally not. I have read about mindfulness but I can't get into it at all because it's so opposite of how I naturally am (I can't accept impermanence).

    I have wondered how ghosts can retain memories since they don't have physical brains.

    Have you read much about the difference between mind and brain? There's some interesting stuff written about consciousness by physics and philosophers, the mind is more than the brain.

    Yes, there are interesting accounts from past life regression therapy of memories from a previous life that affect how some people behave today, especially phobias. I'm not sure current scientific knowledge can explain these events.

    I've read a couple of different books on consciousness, a lot of them are dismissive of past life or near death experience, they think they are hokum but equally some of them think its possible consciousness continues or can continue but memory can not, I wish I could remember the main title that I remember this from but I dont. It dealt with a lot of questions about whether or not there is a self independent of memory or if memory is the self or if memory would result in the destruction of the self if it had to bear it over the course of more than a single lifetime.

    It was a recent book, published within the last year, the philosophy was complex and I admit to not understanding all of it and the physics was hard science physics too which I can not understand in its entirety either. It was interesting though because it sure did seem to put a lot of stead in theories such as quantum immortality which I had always considered to be just a theory, also multiverse theory, many worlds theory and some things which sounded suspiciously like buddhist or hindu theories about reincarnation or death and rebirth. I had read a philosopher giving a speech in some royal institute in the UK say that they considered this was a bad trend in physics, this and some of the intrusion of the God debates upon it.

    It seemed to be saying that some of the story lines about decisions or choices, a roll of the dice, creating alternative realities in Community could be fact rather than an interesting story line/plot of a single episode. Community was awesome but I never thought of it as breaking that sort of ground.

    Personally the idea of quantum immortality is huge for me, it is much of what I believe religiously, combined with some theorising in a recent book on Bioshock and philosophy, explaining the sacrifice of a character in one of those games (which I thought was similar in some ways to a quantum Jesus) actually made sense of predestination or fate and grace in ways I have generally not considered valid.

    Its all theory though. Perhaps its ephemoral anyway.

    Mindfulness seems stereotypical Se.
