What Do You Think Will Happen After You Die?

Sun Oct 12, 2008 9:51 am

I believe that I'll be everywhere, as exemplified by this poem:

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

I believe that absolutely nothing will happen to me - there won't be a 'me' anymore to have anything happen to . the body that I currently inhabit will be disposed of either by cremation , or , if legal in the country I happen to die in , by composting and that will the end of Kiwiandrew ... except of course for my old posts on Anet which will live forever

Pe@rson, we do not know what happens after we die. This is the most fundamental and terrifying of all human questions.

I would suggest living our short, finite lives as a very special gift, enjoying the bounties of nature and generations past.

If your poem does come to pass, then all the better. I'm like you, but I find solace in Wordsworth:

...And I have felt
A presence that disturbs me with the joy
Of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime
Of something far more deeply interfused,
Whose dwelling is the light of setting suns,
And the round ocean and the living air,
And the blue sky, and in the mind of man:
A motion and a spirit, that impels
All thinking things, all objects of all thought,
And rolls through all things...

What you believe depends on your religion or whatever you believe in. For me: I know I will be going to a better place as I believe in the holly spirit and thats what the bible states. However; I can not speak for others as I do not know what their religious beliefs are.

I am enviuos of people who can truly believe they will live on and go to some sort of paradise. Makes life a lot easier.

I just can't get myself to believe it, though. It seems too illogical and doesn't seem to add up with what is observable in nature.

So, it is my belief that after my death I'll be gone and that's it. A couple of people will care and hopefully be sad, but the world will go on as if nothing happened.

Perhaps millions of years later (which you won't experience as time) you will become another animal again.

Im not so sure.There is a lot we dont know about animals. Look at the 2004 Tsunami. The animals were heading for the hils whilst most of the humans were sunbathing on the beach completley unaware of what was coming.

Anyway what happens when we die?

I do believe that its possible that our soul lives on(or energy) - whatever you want to call it! But Im not so sure that "soul" will have memories and feeling's like living people have. Maybe your soul just lives on as some sort of energy without any conscious thought just like a beam of light.

And If there is an afterlife I also think it may not be very pleasant either. I mean, the world Is full of pain and suffering so why should the afterlife be any different?

Yes me too. It would be lovely if there was a God that looked after us when we die and if we lived a good honest life we will end up in paradise with all our lost loved ones waiting for us but as much as I want to believe it I just cant.

That just means their senses are most developed than ours. If all the people there had "felt" the quake and tsunami beforehand they'd be running like mad too.

And after sensing the earthquake/tsunami they had the intelligence to know that they were in danger and run away to escape from the danger.

I believe that if an animal has the good sense to try and run away from dangerous situation's its not unreasonable to think that maybe they are aware of their own mortality.

Just a thought.....

I have a personal theory similar to the domino effect. Any impact I've had on others will live on through subsequent generations with diminishing returns, at what rate I couldn't calculate.

As for my "soul" or whatever you wanna call it, I have no idea. Too many theories (religious and otherwise) to chose from so if indeed I move on to another plane of existence, I'll find out in do course.

Until then I try to be a decent person and have fun while I'm here. (Just in case)  Wink

On a biological level, I also think that's what's going to happen. But then there's also physics with spacetime, parallel dimensions and all that. Maybe when we die we will be born at the same time in a parallel dimension, who knows.

I know what better happen because it's in my will. There is to be a huge PARTY with beer and alcohol flowing, good food being served, and music and dancing for all. It will all be paid for by my estate. No one is to be visibly upset or do anything else to ruin a good mood. I want to be remembered with laughs and stories about the good times people remember about me as well as all the stupid stuff that I did that made people laugh.

Great Post!

I also plan to do something simular. My wish is that when my coffin is brought in the church/room that the most stupid funniest music imaginable is turned right up to 10 on the stereo.

Then a personal message pre-recorded by me would be played. "Well I was going to make you sit here and sing some songs and listen to some speeche's for an hour or more but instead why dont we skip all that. "I have hired out a bar for you all for the night and paid a £2,000 drinks credit to the bar"- Enjoy Yourselve's!

I know someone who's friend died and as they drew the curtain and began to cremate him Bruce Springsteens "Im on Fire" was played as requested by the deceased throughtout the Cremitorium.

All the Water inside me will dry up and gradually one by one all the carbon atoms that make up me will be broken down back to their base form as part of the decomposition process.

Of course if I am killed and consumed by a Lion or large carnivore then I will just be processed into a few dollops of Lion Scat and then used to fertilise the soil which grows the grass which the zebras eat, which the lions eat etc etc...

If I am killed in a mid air explosion or drown at sea obviously that would also affect the rate/method of my decomposition/atom recycling, but essentially I will no longer exist... Smile

Oh I agree fully with that.

What I was trying to get at is that they are not aware on the same level. Animals will only respond to immediate threats. For example: Zebra sees lion... zebra runs. A zebra doesn't care if it might get sick in the short term, whether there will be a shortage of food or water, etc.

Humans have the capability of foresight that animals lack. I.e. Will eating burgers and fry's daily hurt me in the long run, will driving fast end up in an accident down the road, will I get mugged if I got to this place, etc.

I think that my spirit will float out of my body and up towards the ceiling, then the light will open and i'll walk through it, down a tunnel where i'll be greeted by the all encompassing love of my creator, at some point i'll have to endure a life review, where every moment of my life will pass before my eyes and i'll feel the pain i've inflicted upon others, whether it be physical or emotional, i'll then be reincarnated with no memories from my previous life, so my soul can learn another lesson as it progresses higher up towards the point where i have learned all my lessons and no longer needs to be reincarnated, then i'll live in eternal bliss with my creator.

as for how i'll die, my hope is, when i've lived a long life and am ready to go, i'll get on an airplane with a bottle of sleeping pills. sometime during the night, halfway between two far flung points, i'll take my sleeping pills and quietly fall asleep, never to awaken.

That's not the same as being aware of your inevitable death. Even when you are in good health. From a young age too.
Only humans, or some of them, think, for some reason I cannot fathom, that somehow there is some afterlife waiting.
IF you do this, believe that, do as (insert example) says.

I think there's no doubt as to what happens to the body, physically; as to whether there's a soul and an afterlife, there's no way of telling for certain; we want to believe that there is a better place and that those we have lost are there and will be there to meet us; it's a lovely thought, of course, but anything more than that? Who knows?

Whether it's a rosy as all that, I can't tell; however, I do believe that there must be some kind of divine power and that a good life will be rewarded, just as a bad life will be punished.

After I die I expect at least three days of national mourning after which a large memorial monument will be erected in a prominent location. Any home I've lived in will be converted into museums and my underpants will sell on EBay for large sums of money.

Of course, I won't care about any of this once I'm dead as I won't exist anymore!  Smile

When I die, it may very well be possible to install whatever memories I have accrued into a new brain/body set.

Of course, this will require at least another 50 years of ethically-gray-area research and like a zillion dollars, so we'll see. If, however, reality occurs and I just croak over... I sure hope there's a hell.

Seriously though, did you know that Christmas is actually a bigger holiday in Hell than in Heaven and New York combined? Something to do with irony, I think. But from what I hear it's like international Paint the Town Red day down there or something.

I know what better happen because it's in my will. There is to be a huge PARTY with beer and alcohol flowing, good food being served, and music and dancing for all. It will all be paid for by my estate. No one is to be visibly upset or do anything else to ruin a good mood. I want to be remembered with laughs and stories about the good times people remember about me as well as all the stupid stuff that I did that made people laugh.

You and I seem to have written the same stipulations into our respective wills, RJ.  bigthumbsup 

As for after the big party, well...

I like the idea of reincarnation. If I've learned what I'm supposed to in this life, then I'll move on to the next lesson. If I haven't learned what I'm supposed to this time around, then I'll have to repeat some version of this life. I do hope that the next time around I'm still a guy, as peeing while standing is most convenient and would probably be a hard habit to shake.

I believe that the body is just a vessel for your soul and that the energy of your soul is immortal. Whilst I don't enjoy death, I only feel bad for the family who is left behind - because usually it's come as a relief to the person who has passed on, in some cases I don't even think they pass on; more hang around to annoy the living instead.
