Synopsis: If you are ever haunted by the thought of being sucked away into nothingness, you should read this book. It would be understandable for you to think that everything that can be said about the probability of an afterlife has already been said, but that doesn't matter. What matters is whether you remember the reasons why personal, subjective immortality makes sense and eternal death doesn't. Here you will find an extended inductive argument to that conclusion, based on the time-honored analogies between life and dream, death and sleep. The author takes an argument of David Hume's and turns it on its head. That argument forms the core of a view the author describes as Taoistic, psychedelic Christianity. Taoistic in that God's power is conceived as purely artistic and inspirational, and psychedelic in that the author acknowledges that taking LSD had a profound and benign influence on his life. On this view, the first-person perspective is given in experience. What kind of person you are is an ever-unfolding story that you strive to perfect.

About the Author: Jack Call PhD, teaches philosophy at Citrus College in southern California. He has published numerous essays on the relations between philosophy, religion and social science. He received his PhD from Claremont Graduate University.
