This is the forum for all who are interested in the theory of what may happen to consciousness at the point of death as explained in the books 'Is There Life After Death - The Extraordinary Science Of What Happens When You Die' and The Daemon.

It is important to bear in mind that all these BIMAX re-runs, possibly millions and millions of them, take place in the final moments of life. For the "dying" subject these take place over millions of lifetimes but for an observer they take place in the flash of an eye and, in their (the observer's) "Everett Universe", the subject is seen to die and does, actually die. Indeed what the observer perceives is the subject encountering the Plank Time Barrier.
Under MWI there is not a linear time line where one universe outcome is dependant upon what is currently happening in another after the introduction of the first change. Also under MWI a new universe does not need to wait for an Eidilon to die before it comes into existence. Therefore as long as a change (or a possibility for a change) is introduced (no matter how minor) a new universe would need to manifest itself into existence. Therefore this means that we have a Daemon that is simultaneously existing possibly within an almost infinite number of universes. This implies that the SAME Daemon is present in ALL relevant universes every time a change (or an action of free will that is different) is introduced.
Consequently, to me anyway, this implies that :
a) the virgin life becomes redundant. The Daemon is already living many versions of the same life simultaneously
b) everything that can happen in a particular moment is already happening “Now”
c) By default the Daemon always knows all outcomes from all possibilities
Therefore what is the rational for guiding a specific Eidilon in a specific universe towards a directed outcome when it's already happening in another Universe?
The very act of providing a guiding hand in itself implies that there is only one universe. This would need to be a universe where all possibilities are happening simultaneously that exists in the “Now” ( I won't go into this again as it has already been discussed extensively else where). In other words If we have a constantly evolving present moment then it makes sense for the Daemon to introduce change, purely because it is not happening anywhere else.
Tom Campbell describes it best stating that Consciousness formed a system of reality cells that acted as a type of automata to form what he calls the Big Computer which is busy processing out all of our Realities.

For us, the barrier to the outside world is the computer itself, you cannot take a (simulated) 'living' being out of the computer as there is then no medium to support his existence as he knows it.
Is consciousness a result of brain activity or does consciousness use the “machine” to express itself within it’s current experience? If it is the former then one could argue in favour of a backup of data simulating reality when it is run. If it is the latter however all we are left with really is the data backup to a “grand game” with nobody around to play it. With no observer to view and participate in the game can it be said to exist at all? Who wrote the game in the first place?, was it a consciousness independent of the game and if so, consciousness cannot be part of that selfsame game. Perhaps the game being a product of consciousness would be used as a tool for consciousness to express itself, if so we are still left with the fact that consciousness exists outside of the game/data.

Consciousness like light would be simultaneously present in all “locations” in all “times” experiencing everything that can be experienced within a single moment of awareness. Imagine walking into a library: All of the texts in all of the books are present in the "now". What our perceived individual experience is in this moment of "now" is dependant upon which page of which book our focus (enacted by freewill - ie the observer collapsing the wave function) is currently directed at.
