A beautiful white woman with wings in a white gown comes, speaks to you in a soothing voice, takes you by the hand and leads to a WONDERRRFUL PLACE where everyone is happy, there's soft music playing and it's full of smiling Christians... that's right, YOU'RE IN HELL.

Remember where you were in the year 1843? You go there again.

A few seconds after death I immediately went back to the exact same place I was ten months before I was conceived.

Ever since my mom died 6 years ago, I have wondered. My mom, for example, sits in a box on my book shelf. At least the remaining ashes of her physical form. Her feelings, thoughts, strong opinions, beliefs... They live on in the people she shared her life with. In after life, all I can prove is that she is ash in a bag, inside a box.

Decomposition.
Check out Mary Roach's Stiff: Curious Lives of Human Cadavers. She has an excellent, relatable writing style.

Is her real name Mary Roach STIFF? Cuz people with relatable names are in the profession, There;'s an actual name for that (little did I know) called Aprtonym. This site has examples. Famous football stars named Ball. [en.wikipedia.org]. Here are other examples. Colin Bass, British bassist in the rock band Camel[4]
Lance Bass, bass singer for the American pop boy band NSYNC[6]

@K9Kohle789 the apostrophe s was intended to indicate possessive. I was referring to the author Mary Roach and her book, Stiff: Curious Lives of Human Cadavers
[amazon.com]

@chalupacabre STIFF is my second favorite book of hers next to SPOOK with BONK a close third.

She pretty much has something involving cadavers in every book she's ever written. smile001.gif

Been dead twice...more peaceful, quiet, and far less scary than what was actually going on. Came back to pain, fear, and worry. Did Not come back wanting to save the world or any such claptrap!!! Will be at peace to go again.

Same here. I have experienced death and it is a matter of medical record. My recollection afterward is of the void. In hospital, and after major surgery, it was a nothingness I've not experienced before or since. It is relief from the speculation and uncertainty with which I regarded death before that experience. There is no more suffering.

I don’t know. I haven’t died yet.

the brain, which creates our consciousness, dies, so our consciousness stops existing. our bodies decompose. that's it. the end.

WooooHoooo, yeee-HAH! Go worms and beetles!

@PalacinkyPDX they crawl in, they crawl out, they play pinochle.... my grandfather used to play that but he was no worm!

g

@genessa Yes, pinochle and canasta... two nearly-extinct old Jew card games.

@PalacinkyPDX excuuuuuse meeeee "jew card game"?????!!!!!
What kind of nasty racist/nazi remark was That?

@AnneWimsey I, a Hebress, am discussing my culture, missy. And, yes, canasta was a game much favored by we older Jews of a certain era. It's now rarely played as that generation has died out. The late Totie Fields often discussed canasta in her standup comedy routines.

Edited

@PalacinkyPDX well, my lily-white anglo-saxons played pinochle and/or canasta at least once a week amongst the family or at card parties for over 70 years. And both are Huge at Senior Centers and Board Game Meetups around the world. I guess now everything has to have a racial label? Or belong to an ethnic group? Pinochle began in France & Germany, for courtiers, according to Google, deriving from the older game "bezique". Canasta is native to Uraguay. So not so much "old jewish".......
And BTW, do you enjoy slinging around "old jew" the way some black people sling around racial epithets, because " it's okay when we say it"? Just wondering.......

@AnneWimsey Then we have cultural intersection.smile001.gif. Yes, everything has a label... either we label it ourselves or someone will do it for us.

Why the past tense? Are you already dead or do you think we are?

Usually decomposition starts setting in.

You are a fleeting thought in a universe that is as far as we can tell just becoming aware of itself for the first time. We aren't aware enough yet to really have a universal identity, but like the flash of a lightning bugs ass we each have our moment, and then we're gone. Enjoy your light while it last, I know damn well I will.

We cried, mourned, had a funeral, buried our loved one, and tried to navigate life without those we love.

In my case, anything useful gets harvested for organ transplants, the rest goes to the local medical school.

All I can say for sure is that there is lots of worms envolved.

As long as there is no Ted Danson, I will be in a good place. 😁

Who knows? Maybe disintegration maybe ecstasy. One things for sure, we’ll all find out one day so make the most of what is in front of you now. No need to speculate on the end of things. Let the religious types ponder that one.

I fell through the ice when I was a kid. I awoke 3 days later in a hospital. I have absolutely no remembrance of anything that happened in between. No 'tunnel of light'. No 'pearly gates'. No nothing. (Maybe I wasn't "dead" enough?). All I remember is saying "I'm hungry!", and after the doctors got done marveling over my 're-awakening', the nurse brought me a bowl of tomato soup, a tuna sandwich, and a carton of milk. I haven't been out on the ice since. And when I still lived in Michigan, on very cold winter days, I'd get this craving for tomato soup, and a tuna sandwich!

The brain environment condusive to brain wave kinetic energy releases that energy our of your thoughts confined to your brain environment into the fullness of the world environment.

Someone bit the dust. The worms had a feast. Birds ate the worms. Beasts ate the birds. We ate the beasts.
