Choose your Afterlife

Recommended Posts

SettleDownKid

Hi.

 

I was wondering, if you were able to decide what you wanted to do after you die what would it be? Heaven, reincarnation,nothing etc.

 

I think if I was able to choose, i would want to live my life over again, or maybe even life as somebody else. what would you want to do?

I would choose an afterlife where anything is possible, where any dream and desire comes true, where you can do anything you want, become anyone you want, have abilities you haven't even dreamed about. A place where time doesn't mater...

I'd prefer my afterlife to be the same as what I had before I was alive. Nothingness. I couldn't think of anything worse than being conscious forever

The no conciousness idea scares me. I don't no why, just not being at all is one of the worst things that can happen to me in my opinion.

 

I would have to have something like Heaven. Not a Heaven where you can't feel anger, sadness, or strife, but a Heaven where things are much better. It would be boring the way most describe Heaven, not having any problems. It doesn't have to be perfect, just pretty damn close.

I would'nt go to that mythical place called heaven that would be boring sitting about singing hymns all bloody day no thanks. It would have to be reincarnation for me and to be able to choose what circumstances I would be reincarnated into rich, good looking, charming, happy, ect.

I cannot choose an afterlife if I don't believe in one. What I can choose is the way I die.

 

My death has been written by myself. I am choosing to die like James Dean. Cruising down Californian State Highway 99 in a classic Porsche. I will crash my car outside of Bakersfield and wipe the f*ck out. I don't plan on dying as young as James Dean, I am thinking around 34- 38. If I don't go out that way, I think I would like to die in a blaze of glory... Bon Jovi style. Nah I kid.

It depends. I'v thought about this before.

 

If i can Choose re-incarnation where i know and remember everything from my past life, then i would choose that, no matter what i was re-incarnated as.

 

If i cant remember or know everything that happened in my past life... Then id be quiet content with Nothingness.

That is because you are looking at it completely wrong. Don't try to picture a world in which you no longer exist. For all purposes, the world does not exist before you are born or after you die. If it makes it a little easier for you to picture, imagine that the time is looped, so that the next moment after your death is your birth. This way, you don't have a boundary that you are trying to look past. This way, there is absolutely nothing to worry about. You occupy a stretch of time between your birth and your death. You will "always" occupy that stretch of time, no matter what.

By that do you mean a form of reincarnation? I guess reincarnation wouldn't be all too bad. As long as I had no recollection of previous lives, that way I could exist forever without really knowing it.

Death is among my worst fears. I hate when people try to say they aren't afraid of death. I think it simply isn't true. All you know is life, the idea of nonexistence to your brain is the most foreign, strange, f*cked-up idea ever, so I think most everyone is afraid of death. Besides people that don't know it happens, or mental people, etc...

Why's that? It's not like you'll even be aware of it when it happens.

I would love to go to a paradise after I die. All my friends and family would be there, no troubles or problems. It'd be just like life now minus the struggles.

 

But for all realistic purposes, I'm going for nothingness.

That's what I'm saying, I'm afraid of having no conciousness at all. Not even knowing how much it sucks scares the sh*t out of me. Because in the end, all you've really got is your conciousness, your thoughts. You take those away and there's nothing, which is frightening to me. Although what K^2 said gave me a little solace, but it would still be pretty messed up.

Reincarnation is the most horrible thing i can think of, i prefer nothingness.

 

Just imagine how hard life is, all the things you've suffered and all the pain you've gone through, all the things you learned through effort, and just imagine having to LIVE it again and LEARN everything again, i don't know what the f*ck are hinduists smoking, but i can't think of a more horrible punishment.

 

Buddhists say you reincarnate in animals, with your conscience intact, THAT sounds a lot better.

Well, the only reason I mention a loop is to help visualize the lack of boundary on something that is fininte. But yeah, you can think of it as reincarnation to an extent. The reason being that there is absolutely no difference between living one life once, or reliving that one life over and over in exactly the same way. So if it makes you feel better to think of it that way, then you might as well.

I'd like to be reincarnated with notes of my past life all written down, so I won't make the mistakes I did again. Of course, I'll have all my memories and knowledge, just I'd be someone else.Of course, I'd occasionally go to heaven where I have access to everything ever, but that would only last two lifetimes each and there would be some kind of "pick a card" thing in between lives so I could be reincarnated or sent to heaven in varying patterns, randomness to keep it fun. happy.gif

This always confuses me, I mean I'd love to be reincarnated and get to live a "new" life, even though I wouldn't be conscious of it, I suppose we all could've reincarnated a thousand times, and not know it. It's a really confusing concept, because you wouldn't be conscious of your consciousness if that makes sense.

 

On the other hand, the idea of a heaven where I get to be with everyone that I care about is incredibly appealing and to me it seems like the best option, mainly because if you were to be reincarnated no matter how amazing you're current life is/will be, with the possibility of reincarnation you take the risk that in your next life you wouldn't be as successful/happy and, providing you found love and a family etc you'd loose that and have to start all over, of course you wouldn't be aware of that but still, being able to spend eternity with everything that makes you happy sounds appealing to me.

 

But for me, the conventional type of heaven sounds pretty impossible to me. I, if you hadn't guessed from other posts by me, am atheist so I don't find it possible to believe in heaven mainly because I don't believe in Jesus/God/ any of that crumbs.

 

Interesting topic choice, good to see a little more activity in D&D smile.gif.

what i would chose is to first be that there is an acutal heavens, and i'd go and chill there for the rest of time, which would be awesome for my already declining faith.

 

second would be to be reborn/rencarnatied, back as a human being. probably first choice of where would be the USA/Canada. Then you guys of europe, that would be really cool.

 

 

 

 

overall, great topic choice, i really liked the idea.

kudos wink.gif

Uh dude, in Buddhism, what you get reincarted into depends on what stuff you did during your life, bad deeds, good deeds.

 

When you're reincarted you don't have ANY idea of your previous life. You're just a new human.

I would like to be sent back in time to the early ages and be incarnated as a leader in Ireland. Then take over the world. No one would expect it.

 

But in all honesty, I don't think there is an afterlife. If I had to choose, I would say reincarnation. Any life is better than this barrell scraper. biggrin.gif

I have experienced this nothingness and have to say that going there was no joy and leaving there made me feel much better....But then I went to a place that isn't Hell but you can see it from here.

 

I am not even talking about the 7 deaths I have literally returned from and on four occasions had the joy of seeing (barely) EMTs looking at me with a needle stuck in my chest.

 

I am referring to IOWA like Mike Warnke says aethists go to IOWA when they die.

 

MW: Where do you go when you die?

A: I believe I will become nothing and become one with the nothing.

MW: Oh, you go to Iowa.

A: No, you don't understand I enter a state of nothingness.

MW: Yeah, right outside De Mois.?

 

But seriously the feeling of near annihilation within the nothingness is a terrible feeling and thankfully I can report that it doesn't seem to be the only option. There are much more pleasant options although I would prefer to stay out of the cycle to recycle of reincarnation I am not going to claim it doesn't exist too.

 

Heaven...I have my ticket but the time of departure has changed allot so I guess I will wait and see.

guess the kind of afterlife I want is somehow similar to Robin William's in the movie "What dreams may come"

 

I'd like an afterlife I can spend with my memories cherished, and if I decide to "move on" then it'd be right time to get reincarnated tounge.gif

 

although most of my actions in earth should somehow define a straight line to hell, I hope hell gets some serious f^cking heavy metal at least icon14.gif

Hopefully when I die, God and his almighty powers will bless me with a small cloud inhabited with gorgeous women, a recliner, and, of course, an endless supply of beer.
