    This is an interesting topic I believe Billy tried to contact me after he died. I think he found God somehow that's why after I learned the meaning of life and became enlightened I think he hinted to me that he was ok!i

    We shall Ionize!i

    No..Not yet. Life is goin well for me and I live in interesting times. Besides, I dread reincarnation. My luck is I'd be reincarnated as some sheik's child sex slave.

    The thought and nature transcend the body and do not die with it.

    Both . . . . . If yes, why . . . . . . I believe I've figured-out what happens when we 'die'. If no, why not . . . . . I still have a few other things want to figure-out

    Neither look ahead or behind, but be here, now.

    I'm in no hurry - nor do I fear it. It will happen when it happens.

    A related question.Is our knowledge* of our own death a different kind of knowledge to other types of knowledge?

    Or does it just seem different (more internalized)?

    Is it a type of knowledge that is both subjective and objective? Is that what makes it different (if it is)?


    *if "knowledge" is an accurate description....

    But without the full affect of le place's point of view
    realised "now" cannot be located this is both statistically improbable but not impossible, and technically unsound...

    "Now" is purely subjective, it is completely within your perceptual space.

    Well, it was. But it has since gone. To be replaced by another. And another. Until all the nows have run their infinitesimally short course and there are no more to be had. At that point, and only at that point, will I be no more.

    Can we really understand "now" in that way? Is there an analogy to the way particles are no longer considered individual separate objects.

    Even if we consider the "nows" as a succession of separate experiences , there can surely be no demarcation between each "now"

    They "bleed into" each other.

    As Janis Joplin said "It's all the same fucking day"




    That is for fun ,not seriously

    Ditto. I have felt that way nearly all my life. I would never kill myself as long as I can talk or write & move about in some manner but I would not want to live again as long as I have unless it gets much better & even if it did I cannot imagine wanting to live several hundred years. Tho if I am slated to go to heaven, I would prefer to put that off for at least 333 trillion googolplex millennia. If there is reincarnation, I hope I do not come back to this lousy frigging planet.
