I don't think we can write off all the stories of supernatural goings on down through the centuries and say with certainty that there is nothing after we die.

There was an interesting thread on Reddit about this asking people who had been declared technically 'dead' for a brief period of time (drug overdoses, resuscitated during surgery etc). Experiences were varied, but consistencies among many. They included:

- Nothing. Just blackness. Like you woke up from being asleep. No memory of anything whilst 'dead'. Common response.
- Moving towards a light or sense of 'good'/peaceful energy. Often accompanied by a voice saying "not your time yet". Common response.
- A sense of existing purely as energy, becoming one with the 'universe'. A few said these experiences confirmed to them that we are all effectively 'one' with the universe.
- Others said right before they 'came back', they were given the choice whether they wanted to or not.

We know how amazing and powerful the human mind is. This is clear through how vivid our dreams can be; creating worlds and scenarios that seem completely real. Therefor, some of the answers relating to anything but 'blackness' could just be the mind or consciousness technically still being active, temporarily, even though the heart has stopped. This may perhaps result in an experience similar to a dream.

A few other posters mentioned being near a river, or on a forest path. Creepiest response was a guy who's Father 'died' when younger. He apparently had been living a life of drugs, criminality etc. His Dad said he found himself in a dark basement type area being chased around by deformed characters. He went to hide in a corner, and as the screaming characters closed in, he found himself revived on the operating table. Turned his life around moving forward.

I don’t know what happens when we die and I’m usually 100% practical about it. However I’ve had 3 separate things that have happened in my life that makes me think in some way we do go on. I don’t ever talk about what happened because people would think I’m a bit funny but it does make the topic a little bit less black and white for me.

Well when you die, your Will or lack thereof will keep everyone talking about you!

To me death is like a great sleep that I don't wake up from. Who here has woken from a dead (sorry) slumber and worried about it? You just don't wake up anymore.

As long as the journey is pain free and distress free it is ok.

For the record I have seen my youngest sister die, and my mother and father and granny and grandad. All just, well died. It is part of life really, but can be very hard on those left behind, and I include myself in that.

Really I Just want a peaceful death.

Been with a few who have passed away, most, probably with meds were peaceful transitions.

But not all, I don’t want to go struggling and fighting every last breath, it’s not nice for the deceased and not nice for those trying to comfort them through their transition.

I’d like to go well tanked up on something that leaves me peaceful and am probably leaning towards assisted suicide in specific instances.

I don’t think about anything afterwards. If there’s not I won’t know as my consciousness will have ended. If there is - bonus.


Funny story about the possibility of an afterlife.

Uncle of my wife was a funny wee man, full of stories and lies and took a dram often of not too often. Once, near the end he said to my wife he was curious about if there was anything after. He promised that if there was and if there was any way possible he would come back and let us know.
I’m time he passed away and was buried as normal. However, within a week he was back, briefly. Due to a mix up he was buried in the wrong grave and at 5am with one family member a guard, undertaker, gravediggers and council rep he was lifted, identified and then buried again. Maybe that counts as him “coming back” as a sign there is an afterlife. Coincidence is rarely coincidence.

Less than a week for someone who was embalmed.
