Death After Life ...

I am quite certain indeed that there is death after life. We are conceived, we are born, we age, we die. It is a very natural cycle.

Now, looking at the flip side, is there life after death? I have absolutely no clue.

I can say that I hope there is, because the very idea of sudden winking out of existance scares the everloving crap out of me. The idea that existance is merely a firing of neurons, a happenstance of one amino acid bumping into another several millions years ago and having such a good time that they stuck together, is terrifying.

Yet I really, really, really hope it is more than fire and brimstone vs heavenly choirs. Spending an eternity floating among the stars, seeing worlds born and suns die, is my kind of an eternity.
Honestly, I have had full blown panic attacks on the subject.


So please, forgive me for my brief post, but I am going to turn back over to the questions of death after life before I hurl.

Indeed, I believe in death after life.
