Maybe it depends which side of the fence you're standing on (the fence being death and birth).
What i mean by this is that while we are here, the place we go when we die is the after-life because if follows this life, but perhaps when we are on
the other side (of the fence), this place is an after-life, since it is a life after that life.
Of course for this to make sense you'd have to believe in re-incarnation. Besides, for all we know there are many, many, many other sorts of
existences that can be called lifes in their own right.
At the moment, i personally think that this existence is a playground for learning and when we die we are our spirit, and we review the lessons we
have learned and how we have grown. Perhaps once we have lived enough lifetimes and learned all the lessons that physicality can teach us, we move on
in our journey to some other place. I mean, who could know that there is this existence and just one other? It's an intriguing thought!
