Death & Consciousness
    #788113 - 07/31/02 11:47 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I was curious what you all thought.

Death & Consciousness
When you die, the lights go out. That's it! Fini.
When you die, you lose your sense of self but join into some form of eternal energy
It's just a transition, you still retain your sense of self but lose your physical body.
Some other option. Please reply...

Here's the thing with unknowns... they're unknown.
Although I'm banking on the first choice, I really don't KNOW. And neither does anyone else.

I'd modify that Hell's Angels motto to read:
"Those who know, can't tell. Those who tell, can't know."

I agree with Sclorch; nobody knows even if they say they do. I think the universe will end when I die.

try this it is a mediatation and it feels like you are out of body if you do it long enough. understand that everything in and around you is energy and that you have a tiny ball of consciousness in your head. it percieves through the eyes and interacts with reality and creates new reality, forget about other senses because they are bodily senses. this will really freak you out after a while if you do it long enough. remember everything you see is a curtain over the energy and when you close your eyes you are looking at the universe as it was in the begining, opening your eyes reveals gods plan, do you think he left you without the truth.

yes the universe will end when you die cause that is what you believe and you create your own reality, cant you see earth as a collective holding a common reality together, its like you are dead right now, think about it, we are creating as we go along, nothing you see is real.

I lean towards the second one, but I also think the third choice is possible. Losing the physical body but retaining the memories of the self...I've heard of people refer to this as "immortality" or ascension. I think Crowley claimed to do it, along with various people from Buddhism, Hinduism, etc. Who knows?

I believe that when I free myself from the physical world, I will be a being of light that views its surroundings with a 360 degree supersense that is a combanation of all our senses plus others that our physical bodys aren't capable of obtaining. I will be able to travel the universe at the speed of thought, I will be able to travel to other dimensions and other realaties. I will be able to do whatever I want, even join the collective consiousness (or God) and loose my ego for good- recycling myself and fusing with this orgy of souls and spat out somewhere to live another life and build an ego all over again.




--------------------
What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

Swami, if you ever DO get transferred into Carmen Elektra's body, can I get a few rounds of "the ol' in-out"?

AGREED! Everyone this is worth reading again I think!
