    if you tease the possibility that our "unique perspective" and "spiritual insights" act as a defense to prevent their annihilation at death than lol that's kinda funny, except you can't know for sure that there's nothing more to death. it's not about what i want to believe, the realm of possibilities is just so open. it's irrational to fear being asleep, i'm more afraid of being awake, so it makes sense to aspire towards being at one with the universe whether i decompose or reincarnate. don't infps like to be in harmony with everything too (or even moreso)?

    All that knowledge gathers into one tiny spot, which is the INFJ's consciousness, and from there starts expanding, but this time with traces of the INFJ in it. An INFJ becomes a part of the universe, in every sense of the word.
    now if this part was still attempting to moon infjs- epic fail. that's kind of how i imagine spiritual wholeness, but i don't think experiencing that is exclusive to death or the afterlife, nor do i see myself as some spiritual guru/mystical sage..

    this. there have been documented cases of near death experiences where people have gained some insight and clarity as a kind of culminating realisation of what their lives were about and what was really important to them.

    Chönyid bardo (Tibetan): is the fifth bardo of the luminosity of the true nature which commences after the final 'inner breath' (Sanskrit: prana, vayu; Tibetan: rlung). It is within this Bardo that visions and auditory phenomena occur. In the Dzogchen teachings, these are known as the spontaneously manifesting Thödgal (Tibetan: thod-rgyal) visions. Concomitant to these visions, there is a welling of profound peace and pristine awareness. Sentient beings who have not practiced during their lived experience and/or who do not recognize the clear light (Tibetan: od gsal) at the moment of death are usually deluded throughout the fifth bardo of luminosity.

    death is only another birth.

    When I die, I want my body to be shafted into a titanium coffin. I want it to be elevated into a satellite where a bunch of marines will give me the 21 gun salute. Afterword, I want to be launched from space directly into an active volcano so I can merge with the fire spirits of the universe. Give praise to the mighty sun God Shikaka.

    Maybe life is like a relay race, we just pass the baton into another dimension with another timeline. Maybe we exist in lots of dimensions and we simply merge with ourselves 'over there'. I don't believe in heaven. We either exist somehow somewhere else or we're worm food.
