Literally, death means no life..
In Metaphor, it means brand new beginnings and rebirth.. (tarot cards)

Ive actually thought about this as well but dont really remember... death i would see is a different definition to each individual. i mean some takes death seriously and some doesnt, but i see life as a sort of trial, like a test to see which school we get into and stuff like that. There are some many people in our lives as a sort of 'resource' (btw. this isnt meant to be an insult, i love my friends and family and all those around me as who they are not as a 'resource') but because we all lead our own lives, its like we manipulate it inour own subconscious way... does it make sense? probably not

personally, i see death as a peaceful thing, because we have finally passed the level of life, (cannot imagine what is after atm.)
we say in life there are trials, but actually life is a trial itself, and death is the conclusion of that trial as a result of all the 'resources' we have accumulated in life...


"The Last dance with death."It must be peacefull,since expression of the dead usually is a peacefull one,so peacefull that....we can never truly understand how deep it goes.I have a feeling it's because death is not an infinite end,it's beginning of something else.I wont go defining what it is,but...it's definetly not an end.

Death is something that we cannot entirely understand. Because we can't understand it as much as we would like to, we fear it. And in order to get rid of this fear, we try to define what it is, in order to gain some sort of control over what happens once our "time comes."

(I've always thought that death was due to a momentary lack of attention to life. Life is natural to man. If he dies it is basically always his fault: if he paid sufficient attention he would be immortal. Unfortunately, in practice continuous attention until an advanced age is difficult and in general (for as long as we have authentic information concerning humanity) men have died. But essentially, it was always through a kind of suicide and through their own fault.)

You're still young, and have a lot to learn. Experience a person fighting for life, both beautiful and amazing, and the peace of death. Dr. Lucene is both an idealist and a poet.

"you are something the whole universe is doing, in the same way that a wave is something the whole ocean is doing"

To answer your question: i dont think it is possible to give an objective answer to your question, let alone with facts.
In a scientific perspective, everything we know are as good as the assumptions they are based on. At the end of the day, what we are left with is belief.

It is important that people understand belief and reality are two different things. Everyone sees the world in a different way. It is up to you find the answer to your questions rather than be a victim of someone who tries to impose their "ideologies" onto others-AKA religion and religious maniacs.

Life and death are all part of a state of existence which starts way before we gain consciousness and continues long after we loose it. Death is an event that marks a transition from one way of being into another and it's only a small part of a bigger process. Most of us are alive and we're still not sure what that means so how could we even understand death? All we can assume is that for our mind death is like eternal sleep and to our bodies it's a stop to all cell functions, leaving us to decompose. Our contribution to earth can continue even after death as parts of us become food and other others find ways to mingle into nature and life in many other ways.

I think that death is a new beginning. A new life, a new fortune. But we cant really exactly say what it is until we die.

A good description, since all things will experience it. Be it king or common, man or woman, child or elder, they all meet death.

Since I was little I was afraid of death, I'm still afraid even now, but I believe there is something after death, or rather death is but the next step we all take. For some its judgement day, for others its purgatory, for some it's reincarnation and for some we simply cease to be yet all that we were returns to the earth.

I believe that our physical bodies, the energy/flow of life, returns it to the soil. Thus life/energy is never lost but simply changed forms. As for the soul, the individuality & soul, moves on to another place. Where that is, is not for us that are living to know.
We question and ponder on what we do not understand, it is our very nature and free will that causes us to want answers. Yet there are more things in this world of ours then we can begin to understand. Personally if we had all the answers, life would not be as wonderful as it is and we would probably be beyond comprehending the answer to life and death. It could even be so complex or so very simply our minds would cease to be.

Ultimately, life is for the living. That is what we should focus on and enjoy as best as we can. We will understand death once we cross that bridge, and only when we cross it, not before.

I believe that it is just a transformation of energy, since matter cant be destroyed, it just changes its state. The body decomposes because its feeding another life form. Maybe human consciousness decomposes the same way. Just feeding some other form of life. Maybe your life experiences, memories and thoughts compress down to an infinitesimally small size and creates the spark that ignites the conception of another human being...

These questions will never be answered by living mortals, so don't waste your time thinking about it.
