Death Awakens Us From This Nightmare To Show Us The Truth

Countless deaths precede us. Whole realities different from the one we're experiencing. There were more than likely alien civilizations a billion years ago that went through what we're going through. When you consider billions of galaxies, that's not far-fetched. In fact, the observable universe is probably only a fraction of the whole universe and we're unsure how big the whole universe is. We think there're 300+ sextillion stars in the observable universe. We understand there're a couple billion potential earth-analogs and tens of billions of earth-like planets around different types of stars, many of them older and redder. There could be traces of fossilized or simple life on asteroids and moons and comets and on the billions of drifting planets between the solar systems in our galaxy alone. So it's not far fetched to say that some hypothetical alien civilization from a billion years ago was going through the same evolutionary growing pains that we're now experiencing. There's a lot of things in history that we don't remember well. We don't have the capacity to remember everything.

Death is everywhere the longer we live the more we get to know it. We reflect on those that're dead and sometimes despair. But that doesn't mean there's an after-life. I think our DNA wants us to believe in an after-life so that we continue living and continue to give advice and guidance to children and parents long into old age. DNA and instinct follows the contours of our environment and its behavior. DNA desires to survive. We're its vehicle. It instills in us whatever will allow it to survive.

And then there're the cells in our body that're not human. 7x more. What is it that creates in DNA and in living organisms the will to live? The desire for self-preservation? Fear? Love? What?

Regardless of what causes the will to live, it's rooted in the fabric of our being far below consciousness, before we even could form a word to embody it. We're helpless to counter it unless it agrees. For example, DNA and instinct might determine that sometimes death/suicide is better. There's no written rule that living is always better than dying. Nothing stops our core instincts from instructing us to die if given the correct conditions if this somehow benefits DNA.

This is just what I think. An after-life is possible. But do spiders get an after-life? Do viruses? Do pineapples or birds or worms or frogs or trout or trees or fungi or amoeba or horses or whales? The only thing that survives from our perspective is DNA and the inanimate physics and chemistry. The individuals die. They're like the vehicles. Our mind is just a program replayed over and over.

It may be possible some day to observe the past with perfect clarity. I sure hope it's because I hate to contemplate history being destroyed by chaos. I hate to think that everything is only change. That remembering anybody or anything is pointless since everything gets changed irreversibly. It's like giving a name to a cloud or a stretch of flame. How do you name constant perpetual change?

Change is like an explosion. It destroys everything that has a name.

If you don't understand what I mean then you need to understand what a name is. A name is an identifier for something of a specific pattern. If the pattern changes then the name changes.

I would like to appeal to emotions as many of you have, but my knowledge prevents me. I would enjoy to bask in feelings of love and contentment and security, but I must turn it down for the pursuit of knowledge wherever it takes me. I will not force anybody to come with me. I am not God to force my will on others. I can only state my opinions and offer them to others respectfully.

Ultimately, I don't know the truth. I don't think I'll ever know. I'll only ever have opinions.

Death is not an end, but a beginning. I'm no new age guy, in fact I'm pretty old school. But I have never believed that death is the end all. I'm not super religious, and you don't have to be to believe in an afterlife. Personally, I believe we're set on this earth for whatever reason by whomever (or whatever) to experience, learn and then to die. We repeat this time and time again until our souls are "complete" making us a better 'person'.

It's like school. Each grade is a lifetime.

In other words...

Death awakens us from this materialistic illusion,ascending our souls into another dimension,where the ultimate truth will be revealed to us all and that alternate reality is always only a moment away...
