how is this possible, if we lack the physical parts of us that contribute to our mind? Our mind, if it is nonmaterial, isn't completely nonmaterial, as it is completely reliant on the brain, and putting stimulants and what not in your brain directly affects the mind.
Maybe there's just consciousness after the mind is gone. It would just be looking, though there is nothing to look at and there is nothing you telling you so since your mind is gone... so it would be kind of like sleeping except with no dreaming. Annihilation basically, returning to the void.
