So intriguing - I'm still not sure I got my head fully round this "bite".
Listening to your previous PB on animal consciousness, I wonder how this is explained as existing (or not), as it would seem to have no explanatory value in terms of what is measurable?
Also with the existence of "God" question, it seems to me that it depends on how you join the dots, not on the dots themselves. For instance, are the coincidences in someone's life just chance, or part of a deeper meaningful pattern? How can we decide in terms of actualities?
