• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

why not see a real castle in real life?

your desire is very practical

that's a good question, actually. i'm lucky enough to have visited castles and cathedrals before, and the hogwarts at the wizarding world theme park, but whenever i have visited places in the past, it usually felt so meaningless and empty. but i wonder if it would feel more meaningful if i knew i was going to die soon. idk.

I have the fuckin fear that, if I CTB, then I will be punished by reliving everything I experienced till this day, for not giving to life the right value.
I don't know why I have this weird feeling, maybe because I'm plagued by everything and so I think I'll be tormented even for choosing the easy way... Maybe I have to suffer for some reason...
I fear the same thing, my friend..

Sometimes I get scared of the eternal darkness afterlife which is what I'm assuming what would happen, sometimes I'm not scared. I don't get it.

My worst fear is reincarnation. I hear people talk about it like it's a positive, but the idea is awful to me. I already hate this life... why would I want to do it all over again?

I don't think there's a divine judge, or else certain people would've gotten struck down by lightning by now for sure.

I'm hoping for just nothingness. A complete lack of being. Lights out.

Is there a particular reason why you subscribe to the concept of reincarnation? I mean are you aware of a prior life? Best, G

It's just something my mother discusses a lot because she believes really strongly in it.

I've had dreams in the past that make me think maybe they were from a past life or something, but our brains are really good at coming up with unique realistic scenarios, so I don't think they mean much. I've had an extremely realistic dream about being an older surgeon in the 1970s, but I've also had an extremely realistic dream about being a little kid in a zombie apocalypse set in the 80s, so...

I respect that our dreams can sometimes convey another life, perhaps in other realms; but they are not grounded in reality. I can only say that reality has existed prior to my birth and will continue to exist after my passing. I did not and will not have any awareness of my existence for either period. In short, we should trust our endowed ability to reason about what lies ahead in death. Said differently, if life were a set of personal events, then death would be a null set.

Sometimes I wonder if unconsciousness is a taste of what it's like to be dead. I've gone under for surgeries with anesthesia, and it's always an instant *FLASH,* and then I'm awake. I once had a four hour heart procedure, and it literally felt like a blink of an eye. No dreams. No perception of time. No perception of oneself. No perception of anything. I've also lost consciousness when I tried one medication. Later while standing, I blinked my eyes and woke up on the floor, completely oblivious of what happened or that I had a minor concussion.

My maternal grandfather had a major heart attack in his forties, which would subsequently lead him to heart failure years later (he's now deceased). He'd been resuscitated and brought back to life twice. Both times, he described it as a *FLASH,* having no idea what just happened. To him, it literally appeared as a blink of an eye. There's no blackness like you normally get with closing your eyes. You don't dream. You don't perceive time. You don't perceive yourself. You don't perceive anything. It's like trying to imagine that first day in your life where you gained sentience and awareness of your existence. You don't know what it was like before you were born. Just one day, you're there, and are aware of yourself and your surroundings.

I don't know what happens once you're dead. But I get the feeling that unconsciousness is the closest we can get to getting a taste of death without dying. It's really freaky, and a little unsettling trying to grapple and understand. Even I don't understand it fully. Just freaky. Though, if reincarnation is a thing, it also does make me wonder, if you die, do you immediately pop up into a new life? Die, *FLASH* and then you're in a new life in a new world? Stuff like this keeps me up at night sometimes.

Dado que hay numerosos hilos sobre el más allá, la reencarnación, el cielo y el infierno, el limbo, el nirvana, la lista continúa, pensé que era una buena idea hacer un hilo general sobre el tema.

Tratemos de respetar las opiniones de los demás. Nadie sabe lo que nos espera después de morir, si es que nos espera algo más que la inexistencia. Por lo tanto, las opiniones sobre el tema son puramente opiniones, formadas por experiencias subjetivas en lugar de evidencia sólida e irrefutable. Creo que si se mantiene el respeto, el hilo podría ser realmente útil en más de un sentido.

Paz.
Para un servidor, "La muerte es el fin de toda existencia" . Salud, dicha y fortuna ✌️.

That's an interesting take. I underwent a minor surgery once, where it also seemed like it happened in a flash, no dreams or anything. I hope death is the same, just nothingness, like a turned off TV.

At this moment we should ask ourselves if an afterlife is worth having... But to each their own.
As the word says it " after LIFE " I am sure most of us would not wish to do anything life related.
Thus the dilemma.

If I could believe in (any meaningful) afterlife then I wouldn't be on SS.

Its not about "heavenly punishment" or morallity, but about the slim chance that a world might make some sense after all, that is so obviously governed by calleousness and chaos.

Yet during the Iraq war my life as a foreigner in the US became *extremly* difficult, because I spoke out against that obscenity in public. Back then it were nationalistic Republicans who were all gung ho for war.

Now its liberals - self professed "pacifists" - all over the Western world, who are outright war crazy when it comes to Russia. Mind you I don't like Putin one bit, but Saddam wasn't a nice guy either.

So why do people switch direction on the same subject matter by 180 degress, just because you exchange one name with another?

"Well, that's people its not God" the religious will claim. But we are supposed to be *his* creatures - made to the divine liking. We are to be his "best work" - literally his masterpiece.

Now what kind of a master is that supposed to be?

Same with the Coronavirus and the Lockdown policy. If that was "God's will" then that dude must be a sadist of epic proportions. The long lasting damage that has caused - not the least in the psyche of the already depressed - was supposed to be good for what exactly?

Scott Adams once wrote that if the divine exists, it must be made up of an association of lunatics. And judging from the looks of things, he was and is 100% right about that.

I don't know, in one of my CTB attempt I lost consciousness and I woke up in the hospital, in the meantime I felt nothing. Total complete darkness.

I'd like if there is was some kind of afterlife, reincarnation, a second attempt at this life or a way to keep my individuality.

I never used to believe in anything after death until I tried DMT. It sounds like total nonsense but now I feel there has to be at least something after all of this. Or at least that death isn't as clear cut.

I do fucking hope not though, one short go around has been more than enough for me.

I am so hopeful that there is an afterlife. I have always tried to live my life with kindness, and when I’ve felt that my kindness is running out, somehow there is always a deeper well of kindness to draw from. I’m hoping that sacred source of kindness is where we end up, soaking in kindness and letting our poor souls heal from the torrent of cruelty we’ve endured.

I’m hopeful I find my partner there. I miss them terribly, and the belief that I will find them on the other side when I cross over is the one thing that brings me comfort.

Thats exactly what happened to me. Before sanctioned suicide subreddit and this website I believed in an afterlife. Now I'm convinced theres nothing and it stopped me from killing myself and continuing this miserable existence. I wish i never found SS subreddit or this place. To many atheists on there and I was better off believing that there was an afterlife. I'd advise you to stay away from topics like these before its too late and be careful what you read.
I’m an ex Christian and personally found it much harder to cbt or think of death back then because of fear of going to hell. They drilled this into our heads and brainwashed us as kids so it took a few years after I left the cult to undo the damage and not be so afraid of death in general. When I used to be religious I wasn’t as suicidal but then i had severe mental illness since I was 11 and had some times i considered cbt. I always kinda had a doubt in the religion but it was very brainwashed. I feel better now believing there is nothing and no expectations. I litterly used to have nightmares and couldn’t sleep when I was younger believing half the world’s population or I could possibly be going to hell for fucking eternity. It was traumatizing. I believe that’s why a lot of people are religious because of fear. If religion wasn’t fear based I think it wouldn’t be so harmful.
Someone said once after death it will just be like before you were born and that comforted me.

I once met a guy who claimed to believe he offed himself, and was reincarnated back almost instantly into the same life two weeks before he offed himself. He was pretty desperate.

I met another one once who was sure that everyone he killed would be his slaves in the afterlife. Needless to say, he enjoyed quite a military career.

I always wondered how it would work out for that second guy if it were true, and he offed himself.

I would tell you what I believe, but I'm toxic... so I'll spare you.
