Life after death: What happens when you die? 'All part of infinite unity' - claim

Life after death: What happens when you die? 'All part of infinite unity' - claim.   

 

There's No Life after Death. Death is Death No Life . All Hallucinations. 

 

Hallucinations are sensations that appear to be real but are created within the mind. Examples include seeing things that are not there, hearing voices or other sounds, experiencing body sensations like crawling feelings on the skin, or smelling odors that are not there.

when you die , it's over, your body is nothing , you are dead.

You decay into dust and dirt.  

I don't believe there is any after life as life starts from the sperm so it's nothing to do with afterlife.

Sounds reasonable but we don't know anything

Yeah, those bags in Dubai - it's the best place for them. I'm sure he'll have the chance to buy some cheaper local ones when he's knocking on heaven's door.

Of course you don't get your bags when knocking on heaven's door.  You don't need them there.  After all, it is written.  "Mama take these bags from me, I can't use them any more". 

(And then going on to scotch the clear vision claims: "It's getting dark, too dark to see").

My question is if its black how the hell do you see " everything "

When you dream you can also see things clearly,it is your brain doing all of that.

Sometimes you can just close your eyes and imagine you see things.

The brain and body functions slowly stop. 

Gradually, the person drifts in and out or slips into complete unconsciousness. And that's it. 

 

 

"Person" "consciousness" - these are extremely subjective things..

If only one is replaced, then I guess so.

 

Are we not, the sum of our parts...?

If one can be replaced, then why not two? Why not more?

I don't know what the hell we are. It seems like, from a materialistic perspective we are the configuration of our parts, but we are not the parts... But also, if one would make a separate identical configuration we would only be one of those two configurations.

In the case of the Argo, then it would be two ships. But us, well, we have consciousness, which I don't think is seated inside us. Perhaps we are born blank, & are imprinted by Jung's universal unconsciousness. How else do we just know some things etc.

 

(a quick answer, & as I'm sure you know, much condensed)

I'm with Lucretius and the folly of the fear of death. Death is probably just some unimaginable state of nothingness (probably, cos nothing's certain) if you ask me - non fui, fui, non sum, non curo (I was not, I was, I am not, I don't care), a bit like the Buddhist Nirvana, but without the consciousness part. I am, however, very concerned with life - time is a flat circle (True Detective), eternal recurrence (Nietzche) and all that. Boëthius wrote an interesting essay on this in The Consolation of Philosophy, albeit from a religious perspective with God, as some higher dimensional being, looking down on us, and to this theoretical being everything is set in eternity, including your life. It's a scary thought to me that everything I do, and has been done (and suffered) by others, might be set in eternity, certainly makes you think twice when making decisions (and yes, Boëthius addressed this problem, free will is still possible even within a determined system, it's just determined to this theoretical higher dimensional being, not to you who are living it). Sometimes I think blissful ignorance is the way to go, that famous Lovecraft quote springs to mind - 

“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. "
