its not death you are afraid of.

its the unknown which follows it.

All that matters is what happens to you yourself, and that's a total shut down of every thought process. So I see no reason to fear it. What I do fear, however, is the suffering that may come before death.

I am personally scared of the regret that is caused by the knowledge of death coming. Many opportunities to do something useful in life were never done. Life is long and many people take life for granted, but when death is near, they stop to think about the stupid **** that they've done. Take for instance, a high school drop-out drug addict nearing the end of his life. He would welcome death, but regret the fact that he had more-or-less wasted his entire life on drugs, whereas a better path could have been taken, ensuring a happy, more fulfilling life. This is what scares me the most, not death, but regret.

Not necessarily, it's more the lack of life you're afraid of than actual death.

Nothing happens after death, that soothes me.

but what is there, is the mind still active, is there some sort of thought process, is there some form of afterlife..... It's, just too much to think about, yet I still come back to it all the time

It's only normal to want that, but hmm... considering that we're not special as such, just the species that evolved the most, I don't see why there should be anything?

It's just that, I don't want there to just be nothing... I don't want to end with nothing

Then do great things in your life, then you end with everything, so don't worry and just live your life.

Alright, I will do, but if there really is nothing, I'm coming for you :P

well I think there's nothing, it doesn't mean you have to. But just keep in mind that a man/woman is what actions defined him/her.

How do you know, you wouldn't have happened to die yet, have you?

Why assume anything else? why hope for some fairy tale instead of just being pleasantly surprised if it happens?

Because if nothing happens, I won't be there to be disappointed.

Since you seem so hell-bent on telling me that I shouldn't toy with the theories of a possible afterlife, I guess I should just change my way of thinking permanently.
In short, you are not very fun.

Not hell bent in any way, I would like there to be a afterlife, but why bother? if we can't properly test it, it's just a useless hunt. Theorize all you want, but you can't test it, so why bother? it will just be a question which burns up your mind for the rest of your life.

Apparently it's burning you, too. But, I bore of chatting with you, my friend. Hopefully we can meet on more amiable terms next time.

Hmm aren't you the stubborn person, but very well, farewell.

That's actually the main reason I would consider myself terrified of death- I have no idea what it's going to be like, and I will never get a chance to see how Humanity progresses after I'm gone.

exactly. you do not want to lose your state of consciousness. your state of mind.
you want to be able to identify your own existance.
