for me, if there is nothingness, then great. if there is a divine judge, i hope they will have mercy on me. if i get to choose, i want to explore hogwarts or some other huge gothic castle, lol.
why not see a real castle in real life?for me, if there is nothingness, then great. if there is a divine judge, i hope they will have mercy on me. if i get to choose, i want to explore hogwarts or some other huge gothic castle, lol.
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.why not see a real castle in real life?
I fear the same thing, my friend..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...
Is there a particular reason why you subscribe to the concept of reincarnation? I mean are you aware of a prior life? Best, GMy 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.
It's just something my mother discusses a lot because she believes really strongly in it.Is there a particular reason why you subscribe to the concept of reincarnation? I mean are you aware of a prior life? Best, G
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.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...
Para un servidor, "La muerte es el fin de toda existencia" . Salud, dicha y fortuna ✌️.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.
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.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.
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.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.
