death is the complete and irreversable cessation of all brain activity. Your brain is your center of consciousness. Once that stops, thats pretty much
it. Its not a matter of energy going anywhere. I guess in that respect you could say its like a rock thats been in the sun all day. After dark,the
heat just radiates back into the earth.
I guess that would make more sense though, since the earth is where we get all our energy anyways; by way of the sun.
Just thought of something, though. Interesting how christianity says you cant get to god except through jesus. Well, you cant get to the suns energy
except through the earth, after the plants have absorbed its energy, etc.....
Dont know if this is proof of a soul or not. I personally dont really think its anything more than a persons inability to comprehend nothingness.
Also, keep in mind that just because there may or may not be a creator, that doesnt mean that there is a soul and an afterlife and all that. I think
these are two unconnected things. But you never know. Conversations of this type can never go anywhere except around in a very large circle.
