ABSOLUTELY! The end of subjectivity is the very definition of death.

If you're talking about my identity then you are completely correct, if I
think I'm me then I'm me. And I don't want to brag or anything but I am the
world's greatest expert on John K Clark; and I think I'm him.

> If so, then you are nothing more than a faith-based scientist

One thing and one thing only takes priority over the scientific method, but
it certainly isn't faith, its direct experience. If I stick my hand into a
fire I don't need science or even logic to know the sensation is unpleasant,
in a similar way someone telling me I'm not conscious I just think I am is
downright comical.

>  you should stop talking to me

I'm commenting on your childish ideas, it you don't wish to read what I say
just block my posts, it's really not hard, I'll bet even you could figure
out how to do it. By the way, the running total for your last post was 3
question marks and 3 periods, come on you can do better than 50%.
