There is no end, only a transition. While there may be an end to our society and civilization as we know it, there is no true end in infinity. Our
lives may end, but life will go on no matter what, whether it be in the form of a tree or the form of a sentient race, life will ALWAYS go on. This is
the nature of the universe, endless cycles. When a star dies and blows up, new stars are formed from the star dust left behind, the one star ended but
the transition to a new star(s) began.
Energy cannot be created nor destroyed, it is eternal. Everything is vibrational energy in one form or another. When your body is buried, it will
decompose and become nutrients for the ground surrounding it. The nutrients your body gives off may even feed a newly forming tree, so in essence,
YOUR essence lives on through this transition into a tree.
The body you inhabit right now? It was inside of a star at one point, the elements and atoms that make up your body have always existed in one form or
another, it just so happens you inhabit its current form.
The Earth is also the remnants of an exploding star. Our sun may die one day and take all of the planets with it, but that is not the end. That
"end" you think of is actually only a new beginning for a new set of life that will eventually pop up on a planet that will be the remnant of our
exploding sun. It is a cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. The cycle is eternal and never ending or beginning, because as I said, energy cannot be
created or destroyed, only transformed.
Now with these natural cycles in mind, let's apply that logic to ourselves. Our consciousness is energy, it needs to be nourished just like any other
energy source. If we do not eat, we die; if we do not drink, we die; if we do not take care of ourselves, we will die. Yes, we all die eventually, but
that is because of the impermanence of physical structures. The structure may deteriorate, but the energy within it never deteriorates, it only
dissipates into other forms, it moves on to power the next structure it happens to come into contact with.
If our consciousness is energy and we are consciousness, doesn't this mean we also were never created nor destroyed? Aren't we just as eternal as
the energy that we are? What if this life is only one cycle or form among an infinite line of lives and forms? Birth, death, and rebirth... endlessly.
What if when our consciousness leaves this body it only transforms and inhabits a newly formed body? Just as a star exploding leads to other stars,
what if our death leads to other lives that we will eventually live? Like I said, this is HEAVILY implied by the natural cycles all around us. Since
we are part of nature and nature works in endless cycles, aren't we just one of these endless cycles as well? We are part of a natural cycle that
The universe is full of energy and is nothing but energy at different vibrational frequencies. Yes, there was a "beginning" with the big bang, but
how do we know this was the first and only big bang that ever happened? For all we know, this universe is just a new sun that is waiting to explode in
order to create even more universes.
The mythical hydra comes to mind here, every time one head is cut off, two new heads grow in its place. Let's look at this myth through the lens of
the holographic theory, the theory that states our universe is a hologram. What happens when you cut a holographic apple in half? You get two full
apples. The hydra's head is cut off and two new heads take its place. The apple, when cut, is replaced by two full apples. You can do this as many
times as you like and you will always have two smaller, identical apples, replacing the first one.
If the universe is a hologram, what if we are these apples being cut in half? The entire form of the original apple is preserved through the cutting
process, we are the slices of the universe containing the entire form of the universe within us. We are the universe experiencing itself and trying to
know itself. If we are the universe experiencing itself, and the universe is energy, and energy cannot be created nor destroyed and is eternal, isn't
it reasonable to assume that we too are eternal? There is no beginning or end in eternity. Every point along an infinite line is the center, we are
ALL this central point within our own universe, we are literally parallel universes interacting with one another.
So, what if there really is no true end to the world or universe? What if it never began and will never end? What if WE never began and will never
end? We may lose our memories from this life, but I don't think that really stopped us in this one. Maybe the "end" is an illusion to those who are
left behind on our next transition.
