Righto, what about this, slightly on topic in the mind body genre.
If you could have your consciousness implanted into a cyborg body, causing you to live without pain or fear until the end of your days/forever, would you do it knowing that you would never have any emotions or feel anything again?
You'd have your memories and you'd know the emotions you would have otherwise felt, but you cannot experience the emotions themselves.
I know we're talking about implanting our minds into cyborgs, but I do not
believe that what you described about never feeling emotion, though still holding onto experiences and those Emotions
is possible. You
are the sum of your experiences and emotions, those memories.
If you still had those feelings, or atleast the memory, then you would still have emotions, because on account
of past encounters you would know what emotion to tie future situations into.
Besides, if you still remember those emotions, You would be feeling them.
Also my perception on reality.
Reality doesn't exist, or atleast one whole reality doesn't.
For example, in my reality this is a highbrow conversation,
One that I might happen to enjoy, though I might be inarticulate
Someone else's reality might be this is a very stupid conversation, as
it doesn't get anything done, just sitting around and arguing about
stuff that doesn't matter in the long stretch.
Different realities, though I guess this could also be called an opinion.
There is a part in a book, actually in the Narnia Chronicles.
It was very interesting, now that I think about it, it was towards the end...
Book: The Last Battle. I think. Anyways it was the last in the series.
