Actually, yes I have entertained the idea of reincarnation and believe that it could be a very real possibility of what happens after you die. I don't
subscribe to it 100% as an agnostic, but I've reviewed plenty of evidence for it in my life to suggest that it is more true than Catholicism. Not sure
the "lol's" are necessary. It's not good form to straight up laugh at the people you are trying to have a discussion with.
the planet is becoming overpopulated for a very specific reason that has nothing to do with overcrowding. LOL LOL
Care to elaborate on this point? I'd say that definition-wise in order for us to be overpopulated we have to be first reaching a point of overcrowded.
Granted there is plenty of land left for us to live on. But we aren't the only species on this planet. The rest of the world's lifeforms need a place
to live as well. Yes there are more reasons to the world's current overpopulation than just overcrowding, but my original point was that if everyone
was immortal then with each subsequent generation being born while the old generation fails to die, then our population would just grow and grow and
grow. Eventually overcrowding would doom the whole planet.
Death is an illusion. It only exists when we are under the ego's influence. The very nature of the ego is a destructive one meaning we cannot
be under the ego's influence and NOT be destroying ourselves. We are dying in this way from the second we are born. We are dividing ourselves.
Fragmenting ourselves. Moving ourselves further and further away from our true nature which is infinite. immortal. timeless. absolutely
Your new age philosophy isn't going to change that fact that when you die, you are dead. Your body ceases to function and it will decompose to
nothing. If something happens to your essence (soul, chi, whatever) after this event, I have no idea and neither do you. Because frankly neither of us
have died yet and the dead tell no secrets. Even if reincarnation is true and we've died multiple times in the past only to be reborn again, we don't
remember any of it.
It isn't so much the idea of death as it is about what we are believing about ourselves.. this ties right into what the ego is. Has us all
believing about both ourselves and life that is NOT TRUE OR REAL.
Let me be clear here. I do not fear death. I know that when I die, I won't exist anymore to worry about what happens to me. I do not care what happens
to my possessions at this point either since I am no longer here to use them. I have accepted that if it is currently alive then eventually it will
die. I also don't like wasting time worrying about what will happen when I do die, because I guarantee that nothing I've come up with or thought about
will even be remotely true (unless nothing happens except that we decompose).
