If you've ever experienced an unaccounted-for period of time, perhaps you've noticed it seems that it never happened and that interval was "skipped" over instantaneously. From a subjective point of view, death would make the lifetime interval be the ultimate unaccounted-for period of time and that it would seem this life never occurred at all.

There is nothing after death but you still continue on you say, that has me confused lol.
The gnostic cosmology is pretty intuitive and it makes sense. We're all fallen parts of Sophia, and in each person is a part of the godhead, a spark. Our goal is reintegration with Sophia and this is done by the power of the male side, the right. The spark in others is the same material as the godhead, so our attitudes towards others should be the same as the godhead.
I've heard this before, that people say "we're all Gods!!" but it's sort of meaningless because it doesn't convey any information on what we're supposed to do. It's better to say, and more accurate, that everyone else are Gods, except oneself. Then you actually have something to work for and do.
Kabbalah also has a very good explanation of things for those looking for truth. It seems people like to come up with there own system, but if its a "home grown" belief system, its a bit... irrelevant perhaps. No offense, but its a bit frustrating reading 200 different systems that seem in large part imagination and new age mumbojumbo by some guy who "just decided" to become a teacher.

I'll need to think on this, and OP if you have anything to add, or comment on what I wrote, then please do.

The core subjective (I AM) is all that we really can know is real and anything objective to it could be constructed in any manner. The Matrix is a weak example (basically an enjarred brain idea) but provides hints to take it down to a 'subatomic' level. Think of everything being objective to it, even thoughts themselves. All is stripped away except for the subjective. This could be thought of as a 'void'.
Death before life before death In this life, you were just as dead before you were born or even conceived as you will be at the end, were you not? You know, ashes to ashes, dust to dust but with a slight twist.
It's me but it's not me
