And at Death does our consciousness still exist in another universe or reality somehow?
In the way you are thinking of it, yes.
In what I personally believe to be true, no.
What I mean by that is that IMO there is no true delineation between "another" universe/reality and "this" one. In fact they are all pretty much the
same, just from our current perspective, they SEEM like they are not.
But I wouldnt worry about death... the colloquial assumptions about death is from a hyper-limited perspective. You are not "ceasing to exist". That is
a ridiculous notion. You ARE existence. Consciousness IS reality, which IS existence... how could you stop existing? But thats what is believed by
many, because to them, from their 5-sense perspective, what they cannot sense is non-existent. And when we die, we are no longer detectable (usually)
by the 5 senses.
Its easy to think of it this way: Ever played a computer game with a character? An RPG for instance. When you exit the game, do you stop existing? How
about when your character dies? Do YOU die?
Certainly not. And just like in a "game", the character you are playing right now is a manifestation of the real you, and when your character dies,
though you will no longer be detectable by the other characters in the game, you do not stop existing. In fact, if you want, you can make another
character and keep playing
Remember, you ARE consciousness. The observer, the awareness, without objective shape or form. In fact you are no thing at all, and indeed as all
things are transient, not being a thing, you are permanent, eternal, and infinite.
You are not dependent on anything
to sustain your existence, because you are the very essence of existence itself.
How could you be taken away from you? Wherever you went, there you would be!
and when we die in one universe do we simply wake up in another universe as if this life was just a dream.
Thats how I think death will be for me. It will be like awakening from a dream. Unlike a sleep dream though, Ill have full recall.
Others may experience death in other ways.
There is no objective way to experience anything.
