One of the best conversations. I agree consciousness emerges from brains, but what is this energy? Thought energy? Emotion energy? How powerful is it? Is it possible that this energy is so high that after the brain shuts off it flickers, lingers? Does nature leave behind Natural Echoes of Energy? or Natural Echoes of Consciousness?
Does Conscious Energy have any links to Quantum Energies?
So, the question resides in energy which is of an immaterial existence and does this retain memory/experience/life?
But humans have a spirt. They are both immaterial as conscious energy is I would say, but the spirit is a horizontal path where the soul is a vertical path.
The immaterial exist because of the material...it birthed it in a way.
