88. The fact is that many people give credence to experiential knowledge

what is "experiential knowledge"?


Anyway, the only reason you are aware of anything, including "intuition, stories of others' experiences, and yes - reason, etc." is because your brain is functioning.

When it stops, you are not aware of anything. Obviously, being dead is just like it was before you were born.
