    Default What happens to your soul when you die?

    What are you personal views on what happens when you die? There's more than just electricity that flows through your body that makes it move. Each of us has his or her own individual and unique mind and personality. Each of us has a soul, which is different from one another. If you factor science in this, energy can neither be created nor destroyed. So what happens to the energy that makes up you, your soul, your spirit? Can it all just vanish? I know this isn't a new topic, but sometimes I think about it a lot and I'm very curious as to everyone's opinions.

    Well, the chemical processes that made up my body and my thoughts will most likely disappear. But thanks to my unique (just like everyone else) religious views, I also think that the "soul", the core being of who I am, goes back to one giant "oversoul", the soul of the universe.. so when we die, we add our experiences to the core of the soul of everything that exists. I feel like that process alone is enough reason for living - by adding our own experiences into the mixture of experiences that all life previously existing in the universe has had, we are furthering the advancement of all life that exists within it.

    Or maybe we just die and go to heaven. Who knows? I do think that, even when merged with that life force, some aspects of individuality can come out if you have a strong attachment to something.. which is how I explain ghosts and other phenomena.

    Since I think that soul doesn't exist I think that my opinion should be obvious to everyone.

    If such a thing were to exist, it would go with the package and be worm food like the rest of me.

    Inspite of finding this view deppressing, I agree. I don't believe in souls (although I do refer to a persons individuality as their soul) or that we are anything more than just dead once we are gone.

    Could be wrong, but that's how I see it.

    If I was to believe anything happened, I would like to believe that my initial childish ideas when I was a kid are what happens, and that we all get wings and live in the clouds with the ability to travel through space flapping our beautiful wings. that would be cool lol.

    When I die my soul will continue to not exist.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,

    after the body dies, the mind is still alive, if only for couple of minutes. the lack of oxygen to the brain causes the mind to go into an unstable state of hallucinations and relief of thoughts that could be associated with seeing your personal heaven or hell. after this, it goes black.

    the cycle of death is the cycle of life. while my body is decomposing, it will give new life to other beings. with this, even though i die, life will continue. and because this is possible, i may be granted another consciousness and another life in another being. it's a rational reincarnation.

    I would love to believe that there was a soul or such to live on once I've died.
    But no. As the system shuts down, all that is left is worm food. I hope I get well recycled.

    I am still waiting on a GUT before I write off all the mysteries in the universe. I would like to cling a wee bit to some vague notion of something greater than what we are, even if we dissolve into that when we die.

    My favorite religious ideas tend towards a monistic view of the world. I like the idea expressed in some hindu texts (kashmiri shaivism) that the entire world-everything-is an expansion of a godlike wholeness. So we are all parts of that and if we could look back far enough could become one with that and thus be redefined as god.

    Not that I really belive it, but of the choices out there it seems most plauasible.

    In agreement to this. There's not much to be said about it.

    (On the bright side, at least I won't be dissappointed. )
