What happens when you die?

Its the oldest and most enduring mystery in the history of mankind-what lies after death?

Is it all over or is there a nirvana beyond this plane. After all the near death experiences and research and paranormal investigations there is still no concrete answer to this most puzzling question.

Everybody will die. Fact. But what do you think happens after that? :shock:

Personally i think there has to be something else after this otherwise whats the point of any kind of human or spiritual development.

The way I see it you may as well ask what happens before you were concieved. The answer would be nothing at all seeing as you didn't exist, unless you believe in reincarnation/rebirth which I would think more likely than some kind of eternal afterlife as some kind of spirit. Either way you didn't exist as you so the question still wouldn't really apply, there's no before or after in regards to your own life.

I don't think there's anything after death. When you die, you die.

It's unimaginable, but your conscious disappears. Sleeping with no dreams or being unconscious might have some resemblence to it no? What has always made me relax is that it can't hurt. One needs a brain to feel pain. Hehe.

You could say that your vision or consciousness about how the world, life, and death works, could mainly change the way you percieve everything while you live. Without thinking about these matters at all is like just being satisfied with eating, drinking and going to the bathroom. I believe what you call "human or spiritual development" is basically about feeling life/death/cosmos, chaos, whatever you're into - in some way percieving the world and getting a new feel of it; a feel built on intellectual and spiritual insight that might require a lot of work.

You get buried / cremated and then either decompose or remain in a vase .

There is no spiritual enlightenment etc - all hogwash and money spinning , theres no god either , what a load of b0llox that is.

Spot on :) .

I'm more concerned with what will happen to my game collection when I peg it than what happens to me. It'll probably be on Ebay before my bodies been burnt :lol:

Worth noting that hardcore gamers are invariably atheists.

Interesting replies it does seem a lot of people have no belief in the beyond.

A famous quote once said that human beings are the only species who KNOW they are going to die-animals do not have this knowledge, but it doesnt seem to bother us.

Much likely due to the fact we cannot do a thing about it :D
