I figured I'd come in here with a method that will allow you all to experience the "afterlife" for yourselves. You don't even need to be religious or have a belief to begin with.
Ever hear of astral projection??
AKA an out of body experience...
Everyone who has posted to this thread has this ability within them. I have done it about three times since this year started. Instead of putting faith into someone else's beliefs you can actually experience astral projection to come up with your own conclusions. Changes your perceptive on everything. Do some research if you want guys/girls. If this intrigues you all I can write up all the steps to accomplish it.
Astral projection/OOBE are actually quite common, and not a supernatural phenomenon. They occur when the body is disturbed in an REM sleep cycle, shifting the person into a state called 'sleep paralysis,' a normal thing which everyone goes through when they go to sleep. Being conscious in this state causes hallucinations; auditory and visually. From this, the person can slip back into a dream-like state, although not aware of it, and become confronted by the sensation of 'leaving the body'. I personally believe that when you die, that a state like that may happen, although not for long - and we wouldn't be aware of when it ends. Large amounts of DMT are released in the brain in death, which also cause such hallucinations; bright lights, strange noises, spiritual encounters. Yes, that experience may last perhaps a few minutes, but not for eternity. Although, for all we know, whilst in that state of dying, we hallucinate that we are born into another life - meaning those minutes of death, could feel like a lifetime for us; meaning, we are only living in the last few moments of death in a previous life. A quite strange theory, and I don't have enough proof to back it, but just an interesting way of thinking about it.
