• 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.

I'd describe myself as an atheist, though I do have my moments of being an agnostic, though that's not to do with any particular religion, just the feeling of there being a universal prescence/being (probably a result of my isolation).
Logically, I know that there is no life after this.
But that doesn't stop me from sometimes almost being convinced that something else will happen.
Sometimes, I'll think that I'll come back as another person, with no memory of my old self but a vague sense of sadness and grief for a lost person, and that I'll live my expected age minus my current age.
So, age expectancy is around 100, I'm 16, so in this new life, I'd live to around 84. And then if I killed myself in the next life at 50, I'd still have another 34 years in the cycle of life. And I think that this would probably only happen if you died prematurely and it wasn't your fault, sort of like the universe paying you back.
Wishful thinking, I know.
We had a family dog who was the most gentle dog I've ever met, and he died when I was just a few years old, but I've always felt a great connection to him, and felt that he was a very genuine soul. I imagine seeing him in heaven, supposing there is one.
Your thoughts on life after death?

I think after we die our consciousness moves to the non physical reality which is basically a universe created by thoughts and emotions, and there you can just stay and experience all of existence (explore other universes, experience different levels of awareness etc) or you can reincarnate in this hell, lose all of your memories and suffer again because this world sucks.

No one knows what comes after death, if anything comes at all.

This is honestly all there is to be said about the subject. Especially after the 40 threads about it made in the past.

Eternal nothingness

It would also be funny to know why people want our brain to pop up all of its contents in another somewhere where it would have to experience an eternity (an eternity!) of slacking off, basically

Hawking, Einstein both said this existence is some kind of illusion. If we get to some kind of super advanced society think twice before putting another quarter in "a place called earth" machine. It would be strange if the only thing that was real was you.

No one knows for sure what comes after death, or if indeed there is anything at all.
