  1. I was watching some old movies and i came across johnny got his gun and it made me wonder that what if when someone dies they just are stuck in complete darkness...thats gotta suck
  2. Yeah, crazy shit - Theres so many ways that you can imagine the afterlife, some say if you commit suicide, your soul floats around. But who knows? We wont know till we get there. Hopefully we all live long and enjoy the world before it goes to shit.
  3. Really, it can't be that bad since we all will go there someday.

    If you have any doubts or worries, read "Life After Death: The burden of proof" by Deepak Chopra. It deals with the issue of life after death, reincarnation and other ideas very scientifically, but also very plainly worded. The arguments are hard to ignore and I think it's a good read. It's also somewhat comforting, because much of what is argued is about karma, balance and eternity.

    One such argument was between the materalistic (atheist) and idealistic (theists, buddhists or other non-god religions) viewpoints. Most wouldn't argue that a drop of water has no consciousness, but what if that water is part of your brain? What about the other chemicals? He goes further with several other questions and casting serious doubt in life just being based on the physical since our bodies are more than the sum of their parts.

    Anyhow, not trying to sell the book, but I did like it. If you're wondering about death or worried about should definitely look into various religions and books. Just don't join the first cult that tries to recruit a confused wandering soul...:D
  4. Imagine what it was like before you were born. That's what it's like ;-)
