My approach may be barren, but yours is yelding imaginary, but rewarding,
diversity of phantasms.
'death' is an event in time. So you have to believe in time to believe in
death. I don't. All that exists of 'you' is this very current thought. Whle
'the measure of some objective George Levy' is meaningless, 'the measure of
this thought' is a vaild concept; I'm not sure what you can do to increase
or decrease that. An interesting area is the categorisation of, then
distribution of classes of, thoughts.
