Actually you mentioned the pot of gold argument just off the top of your head in an insincere fashion. You never really seriously meditated on the pot of gold nor did you ever work on your powers of concentration, so why should you stand out amongst the infinite number of other at1with0's?

What makes you so special and deserving of that pot of gold?


You still miss the point.

Is it or is it not conceivable that someone is both willing and able to send me a pot of gold?

Once you understand the alchemical secrets of relative consciousness, you will be able to transmute whole universes into pots of gold, at1.

If the perception and memory combo is trustworthy, yes.

And if they're not, then we don't have a whole lot to fall back upon.

Now could still be relative even if that combo is untrustworthy, couldn't it?

The implications of mind reflecting somehow the nature of reality are disturbing...

You mean if it really is smoke and mirrors?

That. Empty symbol manipulation. Or innately unstable in some way.

Hell might come in flavors too.
