what do u expect after death?
    #1622487 - 06/10/03 12:25 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

is their something you people expect?
well if you are religious ... i know... like whether you goto heaven or hell.

but what about non believers? im just curious. because its hard to accept the fact that no one "knows" what happens after death. i'd like to hear what others have to say.

I am on a constant struggle between what happens after death if you were a Christian(heaven or hell) or whatever. *free minded people.

confusion is such a confusing thing :smile:

id say thats a pretty good answer. because people are always seeking for answers. thats why we have so many theorys. for people to have a kind of assurance. thats why so many people believe in the Bible and all. they would like to be assured*(spelling?)that their is something after this life.

I think that we(our minds now)cannot accept any form of answer. i think (thanks to swat for explainin this) that there is another level of our mind that will only know that answer.

I just want to say that infidelGOD summed it up rather nicely.


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

I won't expect anything because there's no way I can know for sure what will happen. I'll just let it happen and see what happens. Socrates made a point of not fearing death because it's only unknown, and he made sure to never fear the unknown.

I expect what I experienced on mushrooms a couple weeks ago, because II had actually thought I had died, and gone through heaven. When I woke up the next morning, I heard birds chirping, and thought I was in heaven, or soemthing along those lines.

It took me a good 5 hours to figure out that I just had a crazy, crazy, CRAZY trip on an eighth of cubensies....it was way too real....

If you don't follow any relegions, or beleive in god etc (i cant see how anyone cannot beleive in him, especially trippers, there is a god) I think, you will turn into a ghost, and you will need to find him somehow, but that is just my crazy opinion.

You have a soul, and that never dies remember that...your soul cannot die, so everyone living on earth is prertty mcuh eternal. I dunno Im kdna drunk..just my opinion.

peace.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

I can understand why there are so many different hypotheses about what goes on after you die...

But I don't get why "you're just plain dead" seems to be, by far, the least widely held belief.
By just plain dead I mean the end of experience, cessation of thought, loss of self, erasure of memories, irreversable destruction of mind, body, and soul. Decay, dust, oblivion. Gone. No next level, no do-overs, just an eternity of non-being.

It's the simplest possibility, and only one that really makes sense in the absence of knowledge (or even the possibily of knowledge) of anything else.

How is a live brain on drugs even remotely like a decayed brain?

Do you really expect life to be just a breeze and expect someone to fix it? Where is the challenge, this life is meant for learning; a spiritual development, how is that possible when everything is perfect?

I expect nothing after death, the act of expecting will just put you down in the end. You expect a event to go a certain way, and if it doesn't meet up to those expections you are brought down. I just constantly try to discover myself, i will throughout my life time, if in the end i find out nothing comes to me when i die, i will still not regret the amount of time i spent on such practices.
