Death is a paradox. We're wired by mother nature to do whatever it takes to avoid it, to prolong our lives and the lives of our progeny above all else. However, there is a beauty in death, for it is inescapable. Rich or poor, benevolent or malign, we all have an appointment with the reaper in the end. There's an elegance to that, the tragedy is only in the manner of one's death.

 

What do I think about death? Live your life honestly, and with as few regrets as possible, and you need not walk into the shadow with fear in your heart.

Honestly, the thing that bums me out about death is losing people I know, and the fact that I'm bound to see more friends and family go in my lifetime. While I'd like to push it off--though sometimes I feel like I wanna bring it on early myself--I'm not really concerned with the fact that I'll inevitably die. I think about it from time to time, but it doesn't really bother me too much, I dunno. In a way, death is just life-affirming.

I find myself going into deep thought about the fact that when you die, it's nothing forever. Literally had me shaking, so f*cking scary to think about.

Yeah I have a similar reaction and I don't like thinking about it too much, hence why I tried to make a nice lighthearted topic, but apparently that wasn't cool.

i guess that's why there are so many religions and beliefs of what happens after you die, Because the fact you only get 1 life, die and then nothingness forever is f*cking horrifying.

Death is scary when it happens to someone you know personally.

 

Like you're never going to see them ever again.

 

Unless you believe in heaven, etc.

I like to think of it like falling asleep. One moment you're there, and then you drift off into the void, no sensation at all, you'll hardly even notice the difference. :happy:

I like existing. I don't want to not exist. I understand that post not existing it won't really matter, but it's the passing from existing to not existing that I'm not cool with.

Everytime I think of life after death, I f*cking terrify myself fearing the possibility of absolutley nothing after death. All the sh*t you worked for, accomplishment, amigos, etc. are all gone forever. You've been killed to death.

f*ck you guys.

I'm not looking for enlightenment you dolt, I want to partake in interesting discourse. Your first post was dumb, uninteresting, and didn't guide the topic in any sort of direction. It's the equivalent of banging your head on a keyboard and hoping you type a Nobel Prize-winning novel. It wasn't funny, intelligent, or interesting, just f*cking stupid.

 

Now that was purdy dam hilarious!

 

Anyway...death? Meh. I could only imagine it's something akin to being stuck in a padded room with a Welshman who starts reading aloud all three Lord of the Rings books.

Yeah...but then I'm slightly drunk, so in essence Russell Howard could tell me a joke, and I might even crack a smile.

This, this, and this.  I spend a lot of time thinking about this, and I don't know why the hell I do. I must be morbid inside or something.

 

It's not death that scares me, really. It's more the idea that I won't be able to have thoughts. I don't know how many of you guys are religious, but putting that aside for a second, imagine just passing and no longer being able to even think about anything. You cease to exist.  You can't even think about the nothingness that is you because there is no you. What happens at the moment that you die?  Yes, we have a whole lot of religions to help ease our thoughts about this, but if you think about the science of it all...Life is a cycle, and this is what it is.

 

When I die, I don't expect to be able to think about anything ever again. I honestly picture myself hopefully making thoughts in the mind of some other being, at least, and maybe my memories of my former self will be completely gone. Ok, maybe that sounds a bit like reincarnation, but I'm hoping for something like that if the whole heaven thing doesn't work out for me.  Humans are complex beings, and I don't know if any other creature is capable of as complicated thoughts as we are, and it's just a huge mind f*ck to really sit down and try to figure it out..so we don't. We try to escape it and replace it with something that makes a bit more sense to us.

Death is interesting to think about.

 

Sometimes I have dreams that are so realistic I could easily mistake them for reality, and then I'm awaken into actual reality. I sometimes get this feeling that all of this life is like a larger dream that billions of people are all intertwined into. When this dream's over we just wake up into another, like inception.. but different. 

 

The possibility of an afterlife is honestly what scares me most about death. I kind of like the thought that once I'm dead, the ride's all over.. an afterlife though.. what would it be like? Would it be a different dimension? Would it be physical or immaterial? What would happen once you're there? Are there more lives after that?

 

I don't remember anything from before I'm born so I feel safe in thinking it's the same after we die, but we really don't know and there's no real way of knowing until we die. 

 

I just to make the most out of everyday, whether there's an afterlife or not I could die happily knowing I lived this life to it's fullest.

When you make a topic, do you think, "how can I make this one more sh*tty than the last one?"


How is this sh*tty? I think it's a good topic.

I used to be horrified of death and non-existence to the point of regular panic attacks. I've gotten better and the panic attacks have stopped but I'm still pissed and scared that we just cease to exist one day. I don't enjoy the sound of an afterlife either. The ideal existence would be one where you have no set lifespan and you die only when you've grown tired of the tedium of your immortality.

I'm frightened as f*ck about death. Like others have said, it's the whole idea of non-existence. I truly, 100% believe that the TV just turns off. Blip. Done. And that's scary as h*ll. Not because I've worked for stuff, or a career or anything silly like that. I just want to be.

 

I can't believe a fairy tale. Believing in heaven is like believing in Snow White. I'll be happy as anything if there really is a tunnel and my old man is there waiting for me. But, like I said, I think the TV turns off.

But why is it scary? It's not as if you're aware you're a decomposing corpse, slowly having your flesh being devoured by an army of maggots and other undesireables, until you're nothing but a collection of bone marrow lying in what's left of a box six feet under the ground. You're unaware, so what's so scary about that?

DEATH. MORTE. し.ぬ
 
THE VOOOOOOOOOID!
 
Many names are given for the act of not existing anymore, and for centuries philosophers, poets and religious leaders have discussed it. What is death? What is beyond death? If there is nothing beyond death and death is inevitable, what is the point in life? If there is something beyond this life, then what is the point of doing anything in this life? If there is something beyond this life, what is the purpose of this life? A test? Deity amusement? All very important, thought provoking and discourse creating questions. What do you think? Does the notion of death and possible eternal nothingness scare you? Or are you okay with this? Or do you reject this idea and believe in a form of existence beyond this mortal coil? Maybe you believe in reincarnation. Maybe you believe on a philosophical level that you never truly 'die' as we all live on in our genetics and our mark on future generations through actions or through art. So many intellectually stimulating possibilities to consider.


The idea of going to a better (or worse) place depending on how you lived our life is something that has always interested me. IMHO there is a better place, for people that have lead a life of pain, and suffering is what keeps some of them going, if there is a place of reward/comfort there must be a place for punishment. Although I don't think it will be eternal suffering for everyone that goes "to hell" only those that were truly evil will be in hell forever. I don't fear death, I am at peace with mortality I don't want to die but I see no reason to be afraid of something natural that can't be stoped

It's scary to think about while you're alive...

Well to make it more comforting, think of how long the hand of time has been ticking BEFORE you were born into this world, whether you believe in the big bang  (which was some 13 billion years ago) or religious history (still very long ago). You didn't exist within that period of time. Nevertheless, time has been ticking for a very long time, whether it's 13 billion years or 4 billion years.

 

Were you aware of that period of nothingness? Because theoretically it was nothingness to you since you ceased to exist. The answer is no, you couldn't have been scared or aware because you were not alive. How did it feel, scary? Long? Tiring? Well the answer is no again because you didn't exist. You may well live for 100 years, which seems long, but is the mere blink of an eye in cosmic terms.

 

What I'm saying is, before you were born, you didn't exist, and when you die, it's the same thing, what I mean is, it will be just as you were before you came into this world, and whilst being scared is natural, I wouldn't waste you're life fearing the inevitable, since the opposite of life is death, and any living organism will eventually die, even the Earth it'self, will perish when the sun's cycle ends. Just feel blessed that you are alive in this day and age where we have quite a good understanding of how most stuff works.

 

And yes, to be clear, I have contemplated on the thought and it does scare you when you think about it too much, but it's best to not worry, wherever we go when we die, rest assured we are all going to the same place, and when I'm grey and old (well, if I get to that stage), and I have nearly reached the measure of my life, I'll be happy to know I'll be going to the same place where the rest of my loved ones have gone, after all who would want to live forever anyway?

 

What I'd really love to understand more about is outer space and if there's any life out there, or what an alien world may look like before I go, because the size of the universe is a very mind boggling thing, the sheer size of this unknown area which contains trillions and trillions of (arrgh f*ck it....)
