to be honest i think that everyone's own separate religion comes true, y'know? for example, since buddhists believe in reincarnation, they'll reincarnate, but catholics who believe we'll either go to heaven or hell WILL either go to heaven or hell, you get it? so if you believe you're going to be stuck in an infinite abyss, you'll be stuck in an infinite abyss. if you're an atheist and don't care what's going to happen, i believe you'll become a ghost or something.... does any of that make sense?? because it totally made more sense in my head :P


What if I created my own religion would that count?

in my opinion, i think it would count, i mean it's whatever you wanted to happen. so if you decide that when you die you'll be surrounded by chocolate then hey, you'll be surrounded by chocolate when you die (: i just think that death and going into the so-called "after life" is when humans' unworldly dreams might come true

ahahaha i know, it is pretty weird to talk about, i dont blame you... i've had my share of death talks lead to existential crisis, but it is really interesting to talk about and debate on ^^

All that really happens is that your conscious is shut off permanently due to some abnormality (when blood stops circulating to brain, etc.),
which also stops certain involuntary and other bodily tasks from functioning.
The result is the decomposition of the body while you're still "mindless", or whatever other disposal method of the body is used.

...Didn't someone already say something like this?


As for what happens to the consciousness itself (or soul, or spirit, or whatever you believe it is), no one really knows for absolute certain.
...or rather, people don't want to know the truth.
Although the thought and consciousness of a person may be gone forever, those cells and chemicals are absorbed back into the cycle of life-
and then are passed along in some form until eventually become a part of a new human being, only to repeat this process again with death.

So I guess there is some scientific truth to "reincarnation"...




...But who cares about what happens after death?
Everyone will find out eventually, and it's not exactly something you can prevent, so just wait until the time comes.
If only people would stop avoiding reality and try fixing some of our problems in life instead of falling back on "afterlife" and such...

Everything that is self-aware goes to heaven.

The rest... straight to hell.

I would like to think it's the same as before we were born. Which would be nice.

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal. so It is not the end of the physical body that should worry us. Rather, our concern must be to live while we're alive - to release our inner selves from the spiritual death that comes with living behind a facade designed to conform to external definitions of who and what we are. The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?

You just lie there in a coffin under all that soil and when some psycho path decides that every rotting bones that dead people over the years leave in the coffin should be placed in a museum where people acknowledge you and all that sh*t; your after life is finally realized: Nothing freaking happens when you die ._.

I think it's just like going to sleep. You don't remember anything besides dreams after you wake up, and there are some nights where you don't remember your dream.

Yep and hopefully friends and family will have a wake/party. They can can cremate my body in a cheap cardboard box and fling the ashes in some garden to nourish the plants/trees.

I think the majority of people are scared of the idea that nothingness awaits them after death--because in their minds... they want some sort of purpose and/or some sort of retribution for all the wrong-doings in the world... so the idea that nothingness awaits them is scary, and some are probably in denial and just want to believe there is some imaginary place that imaginary souls go to to live for eternity.

As for me, the idea of living eternally sounds more terrifying to me than the idea of there being nothingness after death (though both ideas scare me, but at least the nothingness one sounds like a better option to me).

Sometimes I get really depressed when I think nothing awaits me after death... it's like... what's the point of living? what's the point of creating an artwork... if I'm just going to die in the end... and eventually all of the universe will end... nothing I do while living will actually mean anything.

But I'm happy at the same time. Because I will finally find peace in oblivion.

______________

I gave more details to my answers than I should have, but my short answer is NOTHINGNESS awaits every organism's death.
