    death. I lost my Uncle, Grandmother and 2 Cousins in a 3 month span. With every new death, i get reminded of my immortality. It also puts pressure on me because i think about all the things i wanted to accomplish in my life, but haven't. Some of them i have accomplished, just...

    So I have this belief

    that life can exist without any physical form. I mean, our 3rd eye can take us to different dimensions that dont exist anywhere else but in our minds. In the dimensions you can have no body at all. So it makes me wonder, when we die is that just the death of our physical body...

    Sometimes i wonder if life will be sown thing

    later, or be better than before. Downturns in roads I've never heard of before. It may be worst than the past,better than the future, or the same as the present.

    happens when you die the only thing you know is what other people tell you

    Many of my fellow experience travelers are

    wondering from a younger perspective than I. I have lost many of my family in the past few years. When I talk to peers, we agree that at our age we face death as the new reality as parents and siblings fall by the wayside. I try not to dwell, obsess, but occasionally I wonder...

    I'm an Atheist. There is no heaven?

    There is no Hell? What is there? Nothing. If you look at science, people just die. It makes sense that when you die, you are just dead. No thoughts. Or anything. I've always been scared that I would hate dying or being dead. But then I think "but you wouldn't have thoughts or...

    I find death a funny concept.

    ...I don't get it. I know it sounds strange, but death has always boggled my mind. The closer I get, the stranger the concept. I guess I cannot imagine life without me.

    We're all headed that way, so it's going to happen sooner or later. Might as well deal with that fact and rock on!

    I often wonder about what it would be like to

    have a silent heart, to have a motionless chest. I often wonder what it will be like when my muscles stiffen, and become still, never to move again. I wonder what it will be like to no longer fight, no longer struggle, no longer battle my own mind. Maybe when I die I will...

    I am really curious of what happens after.

    Like do we reincarnate? Or will it just end from there? I feel like our spirit or soul needs more than just one life experience to express what we truly are or to really learn from our lessons.

    I'm not nervous about being dead.

    I'm more nervous about the process of dying. I've always hoped mine would be quick and painless but I know we can't all have that. Death is inevitable. I don't believe in heaven or hell or any religious things. I'm an agnostic atheist. I'm curious to know what death is like.

    So if i when I die and

    if there is no afterlife and I just turn off then all of this might just as well have never happened in the first place. If one knew that starting out I wonder what we'd do differently? If all the religions were really just mumbo jumbo (which some have to be) then what ?

    I am scared of death.

    Most nice I am up all night thinking about it, until pass out. I am always wondering what happens l, did I or am I living life or existing, etc. I wish I could a very strong belief in a high power... I want to believe. I don't want to died. I wish I was a vampire or lycan.
