I look at death as an eternal rest. As Tycoon was saying in his original post, we have no knowledge of time when we die. Time is completely irrelevant, very similar to what our sense of time is when we sleep. I don’t believe in a heaven or hell. I think that when we die we “sleep”, and our existence is completely gone, no afterlife or anything of the sort. Our brain rots away along with any images of what we think the afterlife would look like. I guess what I am trying to say is that we have no sense of time when we sleep; we sleep forever when we die, therefore we have no sense of time forever when we die. The way I say it seems kind of stupid, it’s hard to put into the right words.

Anyway... good thread idea tycoon

What you said isnt silly at all, it makes sense to me, and thats because I've stumpled upon it before. I tend to think about death a fair bit, particularly my own, and I wonder: Will my mind brew me a dream of golden gates and a bright light before it finally turns itself off, as a way to relax the mind into death, rather than a panic?

It could also be that death is simply a sleep until God ressurects us for the final judgement, but no matter how many eons away that is, it'll seem like pure nanoseconds when we wake up.

The Universe is infinite, which is a hard concept to grasp, but death can be more easily explained, you just cease to exsist, just like before you were born. You did not know it then and you will not know it after. Can you remember exsistance before birth? Therefore there will be no exsistance after death either.
