If "something" survived, they wouldn't call it death, now would they?

Anyway, that's why I voted four... comes closest to the p.o.v. that death means just that. view post

You can't cease to be if you have a soul, so then you are reincarnated. view post

A woman I knew once said it like this:

The purpose of life is to learn how to be a good person. Everytime you die, you come back and you try a little more. So the people who are mean and do awful things are on their first go-around, but the people who are loving and thoughtful have been around a few times. Once we've made it through the final time, we move on, to where I don't know.

I like this theory, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy on the inside. view post

I'd pick ceasing to be, but I'd have to acknowledge a soul to begin with and I'm not about to do something foolish like that. So, subtract soul, then you die, and cease to be. I like to think I'll be a fine meal for some worms and maybe one day I'll fertilize some really tasty potatoes or some such. I could be McDonald's fries. view post

Fortey just started another branch of Theological Philosophy. To have the bits and pieces of your self portioned out through the give and take of nature.

Kind of like a "Buddha's Atheism", if you will.

I hope I'm planted in a cotton field where my remains end up distributed throughout a shipment of women's underwear.

What happens when your soul leaves your body? posted 06 September 2005 in Philosophy DiscussionWhat happens when your soul leaves your body? by Lucimay, Subdidact

i'm just thinking about energy...

i'm under the impression that energy can't be destroyed, only converted to another kind of energy...is that correct?

if that's correct, where does my "energy" go? or does the body just stop "making" the energy?

i wouldn't mind my body being food for worms, and the worms food for birdies, and the birdies food for whatever else and so on...that sounds good, it's just the whole "soul/energy" thing i can't get my head around.

and...honestly...i don't WANT to cease to be. i don't care if my body dies, i just don't want whatever minimal info and experience i have acquired to be chucked just because i wasn't creative enough or had enough drive while alive to figure out a way to share it (for whatever its worth!) <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? -->
is that selfish? delusional?
i don't know. i guess you start to think about this stuff more seriously the further down the road you get without having produced offspring!!! <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post

What is your "energy"?

Your body, of course, contains lots of energy in it's mass. But it's quite obvious what happens to it. It decays, and is re-used in the world. Your worm-birdies-whatever scheme. As well as nutrition for the soil, of course.

However, I probably wouldn't define mind and personality as energy. Rather, as the way your energy is ordered and stored. Information contained in matter. And that information, your knowledge and personality, can be lost if the system that sustains it fails.

So, your body's "energy" remains, in different forms. But that's just the bits and pieces we're made of. What we see as the "self"; memory, personality, talents, desires... that just ceases to have meaning as soon as the body dies. Nothing remains to show it ever existed, save the memories of others and the things we wrought in life.

Anyway, that's how I see things.

If you start adding "souls" and other more esoteric terms to the discussion, things become a lot more complicated, and one can do little more than speculate, pure and simple. Suffice to say, the world makes more sense to me without them. view post

ok...that's tidy. if this is the case, i'd better get on the stick and figure out a way to instruct you all in the ways of rightousness!!! <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post

I don’t really know yet,(and will I ever know by life?) I think you will continue, but the questions is how, I don’t think we will continue as a earthly persona (though it is not lost, as time does not exist and everything is NOW and will be every NOW), but will continue as the whole of being that you are. (even now but you don’t realise) What the relation between the life you have lived here on earth and your continuing life elsewhere is I don’t know. view post

EVeryone knows that sceintists are now able to bring at least dogs back to life by removing their blood and replacing it with a subzero saline solution, fixing whatever problem(not yet, for now it is only deep freezing the insides) and putting blood back in? Yeah, so we might know soon. view post

i said this in an earlier post on this tread;

and...honestly...i don't WANT to cease to be.



i've been thinking on it some more. i've decided i don't really care what happens when i die. there's no way for me to know and i get very very anxious constantly monitoring my own behavior so as not to make bad karma or get demerits in the big book or whatever. i feel better if i don't wonder about it. (ignorance is bliss right) in truth, i would just like to be a better person while i'm here. afterward, well, we'll see what we see when we see it. view post

What happens when your soul leaves your body?

It moves into a one bedroom apartment and sues your body for alimony. Then it meets some other richer, more handsome body and flaunts its new body-friend in the same places your body likes to hang out.

Ex-souls suck. view post

Truly to ask "What happens when your soul leaves your body?" You must also ask What is it to die? What is death? view post
