Lets talk Death

Anyone else ever curious about what happens after death and why we must expire? It's an inevitable fate we will all succumb to at one point or another. The clock starts ticking the moment we are conceived. I'm not afraid to die, but in some ways I'm frustrated because it seems we don't have a clear understanding of what happens after death. And sometimes I struggle with why we aim to accomplish so much in our short lifetimes, only to leave it all behind...like wasted efforts. What exactly are humans striving for? What are the end goals? In the grand scheme of things, what is the point of our existence?

Often times folks turn to religion to cope with their fears of death for a more sound and pleasant afterlife. However what if we are the creation and experiment of another life form in a distant galaxy? I also struggle with the thought of not knowing if life exists in other galaxies. It seems like the Milky Way cannot be the only galaxy in the universe with forms of life.

Thoughts?

In, Interested in seeing where this thread goes.

Everything comes to an end. The solar system, the galaxy, etc. Then it redistributed around the cosmos. Think of it as being recycled

How so? Doesn't that discount everything you have done and can do with the rest of your life? Living with the hope of "something else" (which is completely unfounded and irrelevant in your day-to-day) seems to sell the time that you know you have short.

Life is pointless. Means to an end. We all die so enjoy it before you are dead

Memory can't exist without a brain as far as we know. So there could be some form of existence before and after life. I personally think there isn't. Reminds me of this qoute.

Pretty much.


Or not. Who knows.. We can speculate, and that's about it.


No need to worry about it.

I've read that when we die, we don't see a white light, but our brain has never experienced what it is experiencing when dying and it's just blank. Almost like an old movie scroll running out of film.

Unfortunately there's a lot of conflicting theories out there. I'm patiently waiting on science to figure out and explain death. The downside is that I may die before ever knowing.
