Some people talk about how when you die, you goto heaven or hell but you still retain the human-likeness. I've heard people say everyone in the
afterlife looks about 35 years old. I'm not so sure this is the case. I'm more inclined to believe that ANYTHING human about us dies when our bodies
die. I think seeing, feeling, smelling, hearing, and tasting are all human-characteristics/abilities... I think we lose all those upon death. I've
mentioned it in other posts but I think ultimately all of us eventually rejoin a giant "ball" of energy and that this energy is all life that ever
existed rolled up into "One". I'd compare it to a water-drop returning to the ocean after a "life-cycle". When a drop is returned to the ocean
from which it ultimately came from, it loses all characteristics of that single drop of water... the shape, the volume etc. But all along, it always
had the basic makeup of water, of the ocean. Same thing with spirit. Here, on Earth, we're all single water-droplets walking around. We look, act,
and think like humans. But we still have that connection to the source of spirit that we originally came from and will ultimately return to. In the
"afterlife" I think we lose those 5 senses that humans have... but that "6th" sense that they always talk about becomes our only sense. We will
lose our physicality, even our mentality. Only our soul will remain and even that will join an "over-soul" aka the big ball of life I was talking
about. I think heaven is simply acknowledging this "Oneness" and opening yourself up to re-join it. I think Hell could be the experience of
rejecting that "Oneness" for WHATEVER reason....material attachment, guilt etc.
But I also believe in the possibility of reincarnation... I think you can break free from that ball of life and be born as a physical person. I think
the whole point of breaking free from the ball of life and incarnating as a person is a way of life collectively playing itself out, growing,
learning, expanding. Every person who ever lived brings value to the life-collective by "uploading" experiences.
These are my thoughts on the subject... given time, I could probably formulate a more detailed belief-system (according to me, at least) but this is
more or less where I stand on life, death, spirit, after-life etc.
