Hey all, this is just something I have been thinking about for a long time and I'd like to get others' perspectives on it.
It's sort of hard for me to explain, but please bear with me
Basically, I have been thinking alot about what is the present? Everything that happens is immediately in the past.
How do we know when we are dead if we are living in the past?
Forgive me if this post doesn't make alot of sense.
What I am wondering is that if everything that happens is immediately in the past and only a memory, I can't fathom what happens to your memories and
like, sense of "being" when you die.
It's not a fear of death but like, wanting to understand what happens when everything in your life is just part of a memory?
I am not religious or seeking any sort of religious answers. I am not meaning to be rude, but I don't go much for religion, it doesn't really
explain anything to me that a good fictional book can't
I am inclined to believe in reincarnation, which is another of my questions, just thinking about the idea of one day waking up as a different person
in a different time with no knowledge of past lives makes me feel a bit uneasy.
How do you learn from a past life if you don't remember it?
Is memory tangible?
