I get you friend, but enlightment is very far from being a physical state. And the funny thing about it is, you don´t need to believe in it in order to reach it, as a matter of fact, if you believe in enlightment, you need to drop that believe in order to obtain it; because enlightment is an experience, some say it cannot be described in words. But this is my understanding of Buddha´s "First Noble Truth" (life is suffering). Life is suffering because most people never realize their purpose in life, and they live only a karmic life, full of suffering, and non-understanding. When I say you will get other chances, it is because you have learned something in this life, but you need to keep paying for your karma (suffering) until you understand it, and step away from the karmic cycle.
