Think of it this way: You won't be paying taxes anymore!

Ive been thinking about it too...I guess death is like dreaming, but were not gonna wake up in the same world...anymore...
Anyway the elders here said that when people are dying, they experience a great thirst of cold water...hmm what does it mean?

I think this is the human instinct to find patterns in everything, even meaningless chaos. We are really good at finding patterns, whether they exist or not.
I've lived long enough to know that we arn't just physical beings, there is a another nature to our reality beyond our physical perceptions. Either by intent or acquiescence, it's not as obvious but it's there. I've experienced it in several ways ie information leakage from a future perspective, subtle telepathy, synchronicity, etc.. I think if your open too it, you'll see it or not.. but given the sheer volumes written about it already, throughout history obviously something "other" exist than mere physical reality.
That is the problem - I am not sure it even makes sense to try to rationalise these things. Spending a lot of thinking about death doesn't help, ultimately it will happen and when it happens you'll either find out what is beyond, or not. In the mean time do the best you can here.
How do you rationalize the possible end of our existence?

But who gives a fuck because you are only gonna be here for 70 years anyway, and beyond that people will forget who you are.
