Well, don't forget to explain the life reviews and personal commentary from a separate entity of light many people get when they temporarily die, or how they meet family they never knew about before (but confirmed after they "came back"). How do random chemicals floating around happen to organize such complexity and unknowables again (don't forget to show how the life reviews were "selected" for)? And if you say chemicals are the source, explain why you say that instead of the more straightforward conclusion that they have only "enabled" the experience (freeing the spirit in some way from the veil of the body). Thanks!
