    Life After Death Theory

    Personally, I have thought a lot about death and life in a vast way. I used to get anxiety of thinking that I would someday be old and then just die one day. I would constantly think about my mother and father and when I see them, how I always think that they are going to die one...

    Legally I Guess I Am

    I guess this is kind of stupid thing to wonder. I have two contradictory answers to this question. The first answer is, duh obviously I am alive. You know I consume energy and breath and all that crap that living creatures do. I am by no means a corpse or something that is...

    Dead Or Coma

    Lately I've been wondering if I died in my car accident years ago and all of this life has been my mind replaying. I also wonder if instead of dead, if I am in a coma and nothing is real, just dreams my mind is creating from imagination or things people tell me as they visit.
