I was wondering if other people on the forum have a certain sense that they are somehow different from others or special. I see out from my eyes and I wonder if others see the same way I do - I guess it's more a question of philosophy - is what I see and what others see the same thing or vastly different? The reason I wonder these things is because at cessation of life does the conscious mind cease function and what happens to this vision or thought we have from which we see or sense the world around us (even if not instinctual but abstractly our understanding of the world, where does our abstract notion of things go i.e. our essence). I'm interested in hearing all different kinds of opinions (after all this is a philosophical question).
