Death


Every Beginning has an End, and every end has a beginning. Birth, Life, Death, Repeat. The Cycle of Life.

Previous SubjectNext Subject

Death is the cessation (stopping) of all biological functions that sustain an organism. Biological Processes are the processes vital for a living organism to live and experience Life. Death is a part of all life. Everything that lives eventually dies.

Mortality Rate - Life Expectancy - Longevity

Going towrds the Light

Death happens to everything..yet we still know very little about it. (Matter) Most people don't think about Death. It's not because people are in Denial, it's just hard to think about something that can not be easily explained. And it's hard to plan for death when you don't know exactly when you will die. So fearing the unknown makes no sense, so we live as if we will never die. But we know that we will die. So this is a problem. We need to have more education on Death. Everyone has those moments when they fear death. But it's not really The Fear of Death, but more it is the fear of having no Life. But how can you have life without death? How can something so beautiful have an end? But what is "End"? Impermanence is it just a Transition? What was "I" before " I " was born? Everyone hopes to have a peaceful death, but not everyone brings peace to Life, why? We know that the body dies, but we do not know what happens to our soul or spirit. We can witness death and feel its pain and its Sorrow, but our own death will always be a mystery. But the facts remain the same, billions have lived and died before my Birth and billions will live and die after my death. We know that life and death is a Cycle. So I assume that I am part of this cycle and that I will be Recycled like everything on this planet has done for millions of years. If our Soul or Spirit does live I assume our soul or spirit will be in the form of Pure Energy. So I assume there will be no "Me" or "I" for "The Self" is only related to my human form. A human form I will no longer have after my body dies. If I am not "Me" or "I" that what will I be when I become pure energy? A Seed? So how can a dying person rise above their own body and look down upon themselves when they don't have the eyes to see? Does this prove that energy needs no eyes to see? Or is this only a temporary state of mind, a mind that is saying goodbye? Near Death people also say they feel an incredible calmness. Does this calmness come from the absence of Emotion that is only related to the human body? Not really because people who Meditate experience Calmness when they learn to free themselves from their emotions. Some people say that your life flashes before your eyes in the moments before you die. Like a brief summary of your life, kind of a last reminder of who you were, right before you cross over to the other side. Some people also see a bright white light in the moments before they die. So a few surprises await us. But till then, I know more about life then I do death, so I will live, and I will learn as much as I can before I die so that I can pass on my knowledge and information, just like all the other life forms have done before me for millions of years. This I assume is why I am here. Everything they have learned has brought me here, Why?  Exactly!

The strongest belief a human can have, besides Believing in God, is that people believe that they are not bound to the human body and that their soul will continue to live after the body dies. The only problem with that belief is that our brain and body creates our consciousness, so how will our Soul, or Consciousness, survive without our body and mind? People who have a near death experience recall feeling complete calmness and tranquility, which also shows how our body effects and influences our mind. So if our soul does survive the death of our body, it will be nothing like we feel now. Consciousness will take on a whole new meaning, which is kind of exciting to think about. I wouldn't want to fear death because I wouldn't want to ruin the experience of dying, I mean I would fight to live, but if faced with death, I want to be wide awake and aware and to be proud to have lived.

"I might not know when I'll die, but I sure know that I lived. "It's amazing how everyone is Living and Dying Simultaneously."

We should focus more on Life itself and not so much on the Afterlife. We know more about Life then we know about the Afterlife, so we should stick with what we know and not waste so much time on things that we may never know. Pretending to know what happens when you die does not solve any problems or make life better, it only seems to make life better, which will keep you from actually making life better.

Why do people all of a sudden become more interested in someone when they die? Don't wait to tell someone how you feel.

No one was given a choice to be born, and you're not given a choice when you die. You may choose a time to die, but what happens after you die, no one knows. But seeing that everything alive has cycles, I would think that some part of us lives on, because humans have more then just an evolution of the body, humans have an evolution of the mind. So something wonderful is going to happen, something wonderful.

The death of a loved one is a very Traumatic event, and everyone Grieves differently. Everyone experiences death, and over time those experiences shape who we are and shape our perception of the world. All I can say is please don't give up. The memories of our loved ones will always be there, but make sure they are good memories and not painful memories. The memories of loved  ones should bring us smiles, and if they are tears, let them be tears of joy. Everyone has something to give, and our life means more now then ever, so please don't waste it on sorrow.

"I believe that Reincarnation is happening on some level. So how do I find myself in the next life? I will have to document everything that I have learned, and then I will have to leave this valuable knowledge and information where I will be able to find it in my next life. Sounds easy, but it is extremely difficult, but not impossible."

Past Life Regression is a technique that uses hypnosis to recover what practitioners believe are memories of past lives or incarnations, though others regard them as fantasies or delusions or a type of confabulation.

Duality of Presence, Life After Death.

Is there Life After Death? Depends on what you mean by the word 'Life'?  The Next Life will not be the same as this life, so what kind of life will it be? I would not say "Life After Death", I would say that there is "Something After Life", it's not death, but it isn't life either. It's something, something wonderful. Maybe when we die we wake up in an alternate Parallel Universe. Surprise!

Life after Death Parallel Universe is a hypothetical self-contained reality co-existing with one's own. A specific group of parallel universes are called a "multiverse", although this term can also be used to describe the possible parallel universes that constitute reality. While the terms "parallel universe" and "alternative reality" are generally synonymous and can be used interchangeably in most cases, there is sometimes an additional connotation implied with the term "alternative reality" that implies that the reality is a variant of our own.

Multiverse is the hypothetical set of possible universes, including the universe in which we live. Together, these universes comprise everything that exists: the entirety of space, time, matter, energy, and the physical laws and constants that describe them. The various universes within the multiverse are called "parallel universes", "other universes", or "alternative universes".
Other Dimensions

Afterlife is when an essential part of an individual's identity or consciousness continues to exist after the death of the body. A concept of a world, or the world itself (whether physical or transcendental), in which an essential part of an individual's identity or consciousness continues to exist after the death of the body.

Heaven or seven heavens, is common religious, cosmological, or transcendent place where beings such as gods, angels, jinn, saints, or venerated ancestors are said to originate, be enthroned, or to live. According to the beliefs of some religions, heavenly beings can descend to earth or incarnate, and earthly beings can ascend to Heaven in the afterlife, or in exceptional cases enter Heaven alive. Intelligent Design

Elysium is a conception of the afterlife that developed over time and was maintained by some Greek religious and philosophical sects and cults. Initially separate from the realm of Hades, admission was reserved for mortals related to the gods and other heroes. Later, it expanded to include those chosen by the gods, the righteous, and the heroic, where they would remain after death, to live a blessed and happy life, and indulging in whatever employment they had enjoyed in life.

Purgatory is an intermediate state after physical death in which some of those ultimately destined for heaven must first "undergo purification (the act of purging of sin or guilt) so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven". Passport Please, Show me your Papers!

Rebirth is a belief that after death the soul begins a new cycle of existence in another human body.

Reincarnation is when a living being starts a new life in a different physical body or form after each biological death.

Biological Lifecycle is a series of changes in form that an organism undergoes, returning to the starting state.

Recycled (ecological) is the movement and exchange of organic and inorganic matter back into the production of living matter.

The Circle of Life
Bardo Thodol the Tibetan Book of the Dead. The soul passes through three stages, also called bardos. The first, chikkhai bardo, has the soul at the moment of death experiencing the “clear light of reality.” Chonyid bardo, the second stage, is where the soul sees different Buddha forms. In the third stage, sidpa bardo, the soul is reborn. Ascended Master - Impermanence
It takes several years to find the reincarnated Dalai Lama. Several articles, only some of which were owned by the previous Dalai Lama, are placed in front of the child. If he chooses the correct items, this is read as a sign, along with the previous signs and some set of secret signs, that he is the tulku. Next, three of the former Dalai Lama’s servants who knew him well are asked to confirm the child’s identity; other officials are also required to sign off on it, too. Life

Phowa "the practice of conscious dying", "transference of consciousness at the time of death"

An individual’s karma is created by the motivations behind his actions taken over each of his previous lives, with each action creating a seed that grows to fruition in later lives. The Chinese invaded Tibet in 1949, and since 1959, when the Tibetan’s national uprising was brutally suppressed.

Believing that a human soul can survive death and live again in another body and time, is not that unusual if you understand physics. Photons have no matter. Waves can transmit information. And if you have something to extract the information and translate the information, then you could receive a message, similar to how you receive television shows on your TV and receive messages on your smartphone. The Human Brain is a receiver of information. So maybe not being able to remember your past life is part of the design. This way life will always feels fresh, new and exciting. The written language is a reincarnation tool. You don't really need to remember all the details of your past life, you just need to know what were the most important things that you have learned in your previous life. So how do you make your knowledge and information accessible in your next life? Write down everything important that your learned in your life and then make sure you leave plenty of copies behind so that you will eventually find it. It doesn't need to have your name on it, but some catchy name like Basic Knowledge 101. Kind of like in that movie Total Recall, you should leave yourself a clue somewhere, so it will not have to totally start all over again.

"If I improve the world in my life, I could benefit from my actions in future lives, and if not me, at least millions of people will."

Life After Life, instead of life after death.

Separated at Birth

Are Humans having a spiritual experience, or are spiritual beings having a human experience?

To say that YOLO or "You Only Live Once", is not even accurate anymore. With the possibility of reincarnation, and the fact that you can have a positive effect on the world that could possibly live forever, like all the other positive effects that you and I have benefited from, all contributed by millions of other people who lived and died before you and I were born. And also the trillions of people who will live after you, so you might live forever, as long as you remember that there is no you or I, only us.

Spirit is the vital principle or animating force within living things. Concern with things of the spirit. A fundamental emotional and activating principle determining one's character. The state of a person's emotions (especially with regard to pleasure or dejection). The intended meaning of a communication. Animation and energy in action or expression. An inclination or tendency of a certain kind. The general atmosphere of a place or situation and the effect that it has on people.

Spirit relating to a non-corporeal substance contrasted with the material body. The Mind

Soul (spirit) is the incorporeal (without material form or substance) and immortal essence of a living being.

Soul
is the immaterial part of a person; the actuating cause of an individual life.

Transformative - Life Force

Astral Projection is a term used in esotericism to describe a willful out-of-body experience (OBE), a supposed form of telepathy, that assumes the existence of a soul or consciousness called an "astral body" that is separate from the physical body and capable of travelling outside of it throughout the universe.

Out-of-Body Experience is an experience that typically involves a feeling of floating outside one's body and, in some cases, the feeling of perceiving one's physical body as if from a place outside one's body.

Autoscopy is the experience in which an individual perceives the surrounding environment from a different perspective, from a position outside of his or her own body.

Dualism or Duality is the position that mental phenomena are, in some respects, non-physical, or that the mind and body are not identical. Thus, it encompasses a set of views about the relationship between mind and matter, and between subject and object, and is contrasted with other positions, such as physicalism and enactivism, in the mind–body problem.

Dualism denotes the state of two parts. The term dualism was originally coined to denote co-eternal binary opposition, a meaning that is preserved in metaphysical and philosophical duality discourse but has been more generalized in other usages to indicate a system which contains two essential parts.

Jiva is a living being, or any entity imbued with a life force.

Angel is a spiritual being superior to humans in power and intelligence. Angels are typically described as benevolent, dreadful, and endowed with wisdom and knowledge of earthly events, but not infallible; for they strive with each other, and God has to make peace between them. Most of them serve either as intermediaries between Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits.

Spiritualism is a belief that spirits of the dead have both the ability and the inclination to communicate with the living.

Spirituality refers to a religious process of re-formation which "aims to recover the original shape of man," oriented at "the image of God" as exemplified by the founders and sacred texts of the religions of the world.

Impermanence is one of the essential doctrines and a part of three marks of existence in Buddhism. The doctrine asserts that all of conditioned existence, without exception, is "transient, evanescent, inconstant". All temporal things, whether material or mental, are compounded objects in a continuous change of condition, subject to decline and destruction.

Kindred Spirits are two people that make a special connection by sharing a bond that has joined them by the means of an experience that has drawn them together on a higher level of consciousness. This connection can be from the same experience at the same time or two separate experiences similar in nature.

Shamanism is a practice that involves a practitioner reaching altered states of consciousness in order to perceive and interact with a spirit world and channel these transcendental energies into this world.

Mediumship is the practice of certain people —known as mediums— to purportedly mediate communication between spirits of the dead and living human beings. There are different types of mediumship including spirit channeling, and ouija.

Religion

Animatism a belief in a generalized, impersonal power over which people have some measure of control.

"So you're a Paranormal Investigator, well I'm an abnormal investigator, and I believe that there is something very abnormal happening with you. But let me first confirm this and check my instruments. Oops my bad, it was me, sorry. Did that ever happen to you? Why is this room so cold all of a sudden, oh sorry, I left the window open, just another abnormality. Wait! Who opened that window? Freaking Ghosts!"...But all kidding aside....

Electronic Voice Phenomenon - Instrumental Trans Communication

Paranormal - Supernatural Pseudoscientific

Séance is an attempt to communicate with spirits. A meeting of people who are gathered to receive messages from ghosts or to listen to a spirit medium discourse with or relay messages from spirits. The word "séance" comes from the French word for "seat", "session" or "sitting".

Barnum Effect is the tendency to accept certain information as true, such as character assessments or horoscopes, even when the information is so vague as to be worthless.

I don't die, but I don't live either. I can live with that. I can't believe I said that. You know what I mean. And there is that word 'I' again. There's no I, there's just me, and I'm just temporary. I love you, even knowing I'm gone and you're gone. So maybe we can be combined. Sharing is better then nothing. And there is that word 'nothing' again, what is nothing? Is nothing still something?

Life is Full of Surprises
The amazing thing is that we have no idea what happens when we die, people have beliefs, but beliefs do not explain everything. Death is our last great big surprise, with life being our first great big surprise.

Personification is a person who represents an abstract quality. Representing an abstract quality or idea as a person or creature. The act of attributing human characteristics to abstract ideas etc.

Philosophy

"in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, The Dead will be Raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

1 Corinthians 15 "sure and certain expectation of the resurrection to a better life".

The Resurrection of the Dead happens all the time. When we use knowledge and information from our descendants, we are in a fact keeping them alive. There will be no End Time, it will just be us finally understanding who we are. Life.

Posthumous is something occurring, awarded, or appearing after the death of the originator.

Abstract is existing only in the mind; separated from embodiment. Not representing or imitating external reality or the objects of nature. A concept or idea not associated with any specific instance. Consider a concept without thinking of a specific example; consider abstractly or theoretically.

Incarnation is a new personification of a familiar idea. Time passed in a particular bodily form. The act of attributing human characteristics to abstract ideas etc.

Essence is the choicest or most essential or most vital part of some idea or experience. Any substance possessing to a high degree the predominant properties of a plant or drug or other natural product from which it is extracted. Essence (wiki)

"Essence can be understood as a belief that there is always some information present, even though you cannot fully see it, it is thought to be in existence. Properties perceived to be important, properties that are sometimes not Calculated in a Consensus of Logical Knowledge, not to say that everything should be confirmed, it's just makes decisions easier to make. Essence is another broad word, that when you try to define it, it becomes a conversation about many other words that also need to be defined. So the word is just another way of saying, "Do you have time for a conversation about the meaning of the word essence and how the meaning of the word changes when used in different sentences?" So essence can be defined as long as you are willing to define it, and as long as other people agree to that definition and how it's used in a particular sentence."

"Dreams can be so amazing, but never more amazing then what life is like when you are awake, even the edges are beautiful."
(Howard Polley)

"Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once. Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, it seems to me most strange that men should fear; Seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come". - (Shakespeares Julius Caesar Act II, Scene II).

"One thing is for certain, you will die in your Lifetime. And I have this feeling that it will be Something Wonderful."

Letting Go

What if you died, and you were given a chance to go back and speak to everyone who was a part of your life, what would you like to say to everyone? Well, I'm not going to wait till I'm dead, I'm speaking now while I still have a chance.

Eulogy

Speak Now or Forever hold your Peace? No such thing as forever, and peace is debatable. Speak if you feel that something needs to be said. But make sure that what you're saying is not an opinion, or say something that you believe is the truth, because the truth is also debatable. You're better off making an unbiased observation that brings light to an important subject. And the time and place that you choose to share your words needs to be considered. When something is not forever, like marriage, then waiting after the ceremony may be a better time to express your concern, depending on what country you're from, of course.


Almost everyone wants to live forever. Living forever is a very popular dream. Humans can live forever, as long as we don't think that forever means one lifetime. Life is a cycle. And if we want to keep the cycle going, we have to learn the responsibilities of living forever. Everyone is a caregiver of life. But we still have a lot to learn. So we must take learning seriously, because forever is a very very long time, and life should be a good time and not a waste of time.

But no one really wants to live forever. Humans like change, humans like variety, humans like new beginnings, humans like starting over and trying something new. Living forever would suck, especially when you don't learn anything new. Besides that, we don't want scumbags living forever, because that would totally suck, like it does now with some people being in power for way too long. The only time a person could benefit from a long life is when they are improving life for other people and continually learning and progressing. No point on living a long life if all you do is take more then you give and eventually kill everything around you, like some people are doing now. Living a long life should be an honor, but for too many people a long life could be a curse.

You die but human life does not die. Human life was here before you were born and human life will be here after you die, which means that you could have another life. 

"One of the major problems that people have is that they only see life based on their own personal single lifespan, that's all they see, which is this single moment in time. People don't see the past or the future they way they should. People should be aware that other lifespans came before them so that they can be here in this moment in time, and that future lifespans will either live or die depending on how people today live their life."

If you can't let go then you can't start over. And I would rather start over then to be a ghost. Trying to selfishly hold on to your cherished memories is normal and totally understandable, and we don't want to lose everything that we have learned and experienced. But who said we have to. We can write it all down and read about it in our next life, like we have done with our stories. When you can let go of the self, then you can live forever, and experience many lives to their fullest.

There's a story behind every action. Sometimes it's a short story and sometimes it's a long story. A story about a wrong turn or a combination of a few bad decisions, followed by those good decisions you made and what they meant to you....Tell Your Story
