i personally believe that the "essence" or "energy" that is "me" does indeed go back into the ether. Science states that energy simply can't
disappear, it might change forms, but it is always present, we can't add too, or remove it.
As for consciousness, well, we currently don't even really understand what consciousness is, but I believe it's directly tied to the pathways create
in each individual brain. So for me, no, my "consciousness" does not continue on, I don't go to some paradise, my knowledge is lost. I could be
completely wrong on this one and do have 1 experience that almost leads me to think I might be. From the time I could speak I constantly begged my
parents for a guitar, I just wanted a guitar, always. They never relented in their "NO". Eventually in my teenage years i just said screw it, and
spent my savings on a guitar. Most people have to learn guitar. It wasn't like that at all for me, the only way I can describe it would be that I
was remembering how to play, not learning, remembering.
My body rots away and returns to the earth, eventually when the earth is destroyed, that matter will probably end up in a star, right where it came
That's how I go about my life. I pay no attention to the "here after" I live for today, and strive to treat people as I wish to be treated. I don't
hedge my bets against a heaven that might be there, I simply live life for today, enjoy it while it lasts, and try my best to do good to others.
funny, ignoring some of the religious aspects of the various religions, it does seem to me that I'm following some of the basic 'rules'
