Non-existence is scary. What if you found out you were going to lose everything that was important to you, everything you ever worked for?

 

Everything you care about - all your friends, family and even silly simple things you enjoy - all taken away and all memory of them gone. All you've experienced in life, all that you've learned, all the ups and downs of life - your childhood experiences, your first romance - all lost forever.

 

People get upset when they lose their home or people close to them. People get scared when they find out they're going blind/deaf or losing a body part. Death is that times a billion, it is the loss of absolutely everything that matters to you. That's pretty scary.

 

what do you think happens when you die?

I personally think our 'spirit' leaves our physical body and drifts into the great beyond.

I remember the one time Nale Dixon made a topic about this, it was pretty good.

We're all a part of the same Harem.

I don't find that scary. I find that motivating. You should want to leave an impact on the world so that when you die, your work isn't lost forever. It's carried on and valued for the rest of eternity. 

 

Edit: Most people should feel this way, as silly as it sounds. You have an impact on anyone around you. So someone seeing your face while you walk the streets might be enough to leave an impact alone. That's why I hate when people feel that their jobs aren't good enough or that they're not making a difference. A machine needs cogs. Pieces might range in size, but each one helps the machine move forward.

 

Annnnnnd there's my philosophical moment of the year.

IDK, going blank forever sounds just as ridiculous as the idea of there being an afterlife.

How do you know? You haven't tried it before.

 

Personally, I share the opinion of TheGreenSadler. I agree that our spirit leaves our body, but I'm not exactly sure what happens after that.

Get into coma for some days and wake up. Then try to remember what happened to you during that period.

 

When we die our brain simply switches off, forever.

Life is not always fun, there is nothing that exits by chance. I as the prophet know that sometimes the time of fear is not yet here. This is what happened in the past but in the new life style the past will no longer matter, it will be over with. The present is filled with fear because when you try to push it down it will stay there and become even more stronger. This is what happened, many tried to stop me but this only made me even stronger.

Well, there is some science behind reincarnation and out of body experiences, studies have been done visualizing the latter, so those aren't as outlandish as they might sound. However I strongly believe that we simply don't/can't know what happens after death, not with our current scientific abilities at least.

That is no proof at all. People who drink too much and then faint, if you ask them to remember what happened, most of them won't remember. But, their brain didn't switch off during that time. As Raavi said, there is no way we can know what happens when you die while you are alive.

Something as close to what's shown in horror movies.

life is energy

you can't create or destroy energy

so when you die you still exist somehow, maybe it goes as far as reincarnation

that's my theory

I don't honestly know what happens after death. Science hasn't been able to prove much so I just choose to believe there is an afterlife.

Guys, to be honest, specially sirey, i don't want to waste your time telling about my culture again but for after deaths in our culture, there is a ritual called Pind Sammelan -

 

Pind Sammelan or Spindi is a ritual performed in Hinduism on the 13th day of death of somebody. This ritual is performed to place the departed soul with the ancestors and God. It is believed that before the ritual the departed soul is a "preta" (evil), and after performing this ritual, the soul will become "pitar" (good) and will be included in the ancestors.

 

and if it's not done till the 13th day of death, the soul will remain evil ( you can say forever to get back revenge ).

I guess it could be 'reincarnation'. Your body could disintegrate and the nutrients could return to the Earth, helping plants to grow, which are then eaten by animals, like cows, which are then also eaten by humans. Which is then excreted by said humans and winds back up in the ground.

Our spirit is energy, not a physical object. So I think our energy(spirit) lives on after our physical body dies, but I'm not sure where.

Maybe this Ritual is done by Monks in Hong Kong or somewhere countries of East asia in which the dead body were eaten by ostriches.. maybe i am right?

It's probably like a night where you have no dream but instead you don't wake up.

The way I think of it is this, try to remember back to before you were born.

It's like that.

I like to think of death as if it's some sort of reincarnation. I just expect that I'll die and that my conscious self will disappear forever and that I'll end up in the mind of some baby one day and grow up as if I never knew Panz existed.

 

It allows me to pretend I was Einstein in a past life. :)

Not really. It was "blank forever" before you were born. It is also blank during dreamless sleep.

We simply don't know what happens. That's the good thing about death.

 

What we know is that we are alive till then and we'd better enjoy life before we die.

 

Personally I think that having kids is what nature gave us to trick death.

Your genes carry onto the next generation and so does the memory of yourself and the things you taught them.

That's how I feel when I look at my daughter. 

I feel like I finally understood the meaning of life. ;)

Exactly. I agree with you. I believe death is a full blackout. Much like sleeping but not having a dream.. and never waking up. I probably won't ever be convinced of our spirit remaining alive and going to heaven.

So why would more happen when I'm dead and none of my body works.

I read this on another forum not so long ago, it was pretty funny so you can read it here

 

Spoiler

 

It isn't completely about death, but it's a good read nonetheless about the purpose of your life.

 

EDIT: It was probably also posted on these forums, since the guy has been spamming that sh*t everywhere.
