dhw: I don't know what you mean by your life “adds to the content of your consciousness”. Is there ANYTHING in your consciousness that is not in some way connected to your life?

I was not clear. Everything in my life adds to my consciousness.

DAVID: Of course you are neatly skipping the origin of life, a problem which requires a solution and must be included in a total package of explanation. God does that.

dhw: I have skipped nothing. You have skipped the point I explained earlier in my post. The alternative to your first cause conscious energy is first cause energy and matter, which just like your God could produce “an infinite number of universes, thereby increasing the chances of one of them eventually producing life, and life producing consciousness. The second scenario does not need God. I find neither scenario convincing, and so I remain agnostic.”

You are using the false multiverse premise that somehow life can appear if enough universes are trying to do it. Like monkeys typing Shakespeare.
