Prediction and explanation

Simplicity

It might seem like the hypothesis (mortalism) that the death of your current body is the permanent end to your conscious life is the simplest theory of life after death and immortality. What we know is that at the permanent death of the body it no longer produces any consciousness. The postulation that you will never experience anything ever again after death, is based on the facts that everyone eventually dies and we do not see a dead body come back to life again, seems reasonable. We have no scientific reason to believe that a soul of any supernatural entities survive death of the body or even exists in the first place.

Is mortalism actually the simplest hypothesis or just the lazy man’s assumption? It is almost as bad as the answer to any why question: It just is! How does a mortalist get from the facts that the body dies and never comes back to life to the conclusion that you will never consciously experience ever again. One assumption is that your consciousness is tied to your body. Why? It just is! We have no reasons to believe otherwise.

Questions can be asked at this point How does your body produce your consciousness? How does your body produce your consciousness and not someone else's? This is where the simplicity of superimmortality comes into the picture. Superimmortality has the coherent simple useful answers that mortalism does not. The mortalist says the the brain produces consciousness, specifically, your brain produces your consciousness. How does your brain produce your consciousness and only your consciousness? It just does! A simple answer but it does not add to our understanding.

When a hypothesis does not add to our understanding it is limited in its usefulness. If the structure and functioning of the brain produce consciousness, then does identical structure and functioning in another brain produce identical consciousness in this other brain? the simplest answer is yes it does. If this is the case then the consciousness produced in your current brain can also be produced in another brain. The moortalist might agree but say this identical other consciousness will not be a conscious that you experience, based on the fact that there can only be one of you existing at a time.

What is the supporting evidence for the belief that only one conscious you can exist at a time. The answer given is that it is obvious because I only experience my own consciousness and no other. My consciousness is singular, individual, unique, I and only I experience my consciousness!


This implies that there is something more to your consciousness than just a consciousness. Or it implies that the structure and functioning of the body or brain alone, does not produce the conscious you. There can be two identical consciousnesses but I have to experience the consciousness and I can only experience a consciousness produced by my body and brain.

What produces this distinction? A body that is producing identical structure and functioning to that of the original will be producing identical behavior as long as they function identically or near identically. Any reference to the consciousness or self that the original produces the continuing identical replica will also produce. This replica could replace the original at any time and no one could tell the difference. The replica will think that he is the original in the same way that the original believes that he is the original. If you could convince one of them that he is not the original the other will also believe that he is not the original either because they continue to have the identical structure and functioning (by the definitional conditions of the experiment).

The mortalist will say that this is not the original, and this is true. But why can’t the replica produce the same “I” as the original? Is the original more, in some way, than the replica, thus making the replica not produce the same “Iness” as the original. If the replica was created first would he now have the “iness” of the original?


Why does the original have the iness that it has and not the iness of any other possible continuing identical replica? Superimmoortality predicts that they have the same iness. Mortalism predicts that they do not.

The mortalist might concede that continuing identical replicas will have the same iness but that there cannot be any identical structure and functioning physical objects. This is not a problem for superimmortality because there are an endless number of very small physical changes that can occur in the replicas body that will still produce the exact same consciousness.
