I know I won't know for sure until it happens, but I like the idea that my energy may leave my body and become another life form. I also think it is possible absolutely nothing happens- the curtains close, the credits roll, the show is over. Or I have this worry that I stay locked inside my body and feel it decomposing.

What do you think?

I join my brother and David Foster Wallace at the bar, and we all drink free shots of Baker's.

Or, more seriously: I'm probably one of the few non-atheists on this board, and I don't think we ever stop being. I'm pretty sure that I'm not going to have the same sense of self, once I die, though. I probably won't even be a person, after I die. Maybe I'll be a frog, and live in someone's grave (there was a colony of them in my brother's last Spring).

Or, maybe I'll I come back as a TSA agent. *Shudder*.

I don't know either. My grandma had a stroke in front of me and expired while we were waiting for the ER. I think about it a lot sometimes, what happens, if you're aware of it or not.

I want my body to become one with the earth. And I want my spirit to become another life. I get the extreme feeling that my spirit was already a cat and a gay british man. There is also a small part of me that hopes I will be reunited with my family in some way. It would be nice to see my dads face again.

I'd like to think I could see loved ones that have passed but honestly, I believe nothing happens. Our bodies rot, that is it.

Well, yeah, we rot. But in rotting and being eaten by worms and other detritivores and stuff, we're still becoming part of something else, albeit in a more literal way than some people believe. (I'm not intending to dis other spiritual beliefs here, just suggesting that they have different ways of explaining things).
So yeah, I'm totally gonna become something else when I die. Food for worms, and then maybe food for plants, and then maybe part of me will be a tree, and then maybe another animal of some description. I think it's pretty cool.

Kathleen Hannah (who will be dead by then) will come and sing me songs and we'll travel the underworld in a gondola while fighting off murlocs.

My thinking is somewhere along these lines most days. Minus the TSA agent bit, that's an eerie thought.

We die and that's that. Life is awesome enough, I don't need to believe I'm going somewhere after I die. It actually makes me enjoy life with more urgency because this is the one chance I've got.

My logical side agrees with the whole rotting bit but this whole explodey-thing with the space jellyfish and B&R? Sound like this angle is more up my alley

This. Except I don't want to be buried, so I'll turn into ashes and get tossed out someplace and those ashes will sink into the dirt and that will be that.

I have absolutely no idea. I believe that any of the multitude of things which people believe might happen after death are theoretically possible, and that since nobody's ever come back to tell me what being dead is like, I will either never know what happens (if nothing happens) or I won't know until I'm dead (at which time there's probably not much I can do about it).

I'm okay with accepting that I don't, and can't, know the answer to this one. I think it would kinda freak me out if I knew that in advance.

This uncertainty is a huge source of anxiety for me.

I don't know, but I'm kind of excited to find out. Major bummer if it's nothing, but then I won't be around so I guess I won't be disappointed.
