What happens to your consciousness after death?

I’ve been thinking a lot about death recently, so I have decided to ask this. First of all, it’s a legitimate question. I’m not trollin’. I am looking for any insight anyone might have. Maybe what some cultures believe? I have read about the people that survive near-death experiences, but I believe they are delirious due to lack of oxygen to the brain. Thanks in advance. Oh, also. No religion. That’s made up you sillies!

  1. conciousness is a pure result of chemical processes happening in your brain. When you die, your brain stops. When it stops, the chemical processes stop either, so the conciousness.
    So, the conciousness just disappears.

  2. I think the only way to Truly know is to die…. But logically, I guess it would just fade away till you cant feel anything anymore and you are unable to create thoughts.

  3. Well think of it like this… The only being that knows what happens after death, would of course be the one who created us.. right?
    In that case God knows what happens to us after we die.
    the bible is a great source of answers and prophesies even if you don’t believe in religion.
    Ecclesiastes 9:5: “The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.”
    Psalms 146:4: “His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; in that day his thoughts do perish.”
    So i hope this clears up a little bit of what you are thinking.
    Here is a quesion to ask yourself If you don’t believe in God. How did all these beautiful things that we see just so happen to be created from a big bang? and What good has ever come from an explosion?

  4. What is the condition of the dead?
    Eccl. 9:5: “The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.”
    Ps. 146:4: “His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; in that day his thoughts [“thoughts,” KJ, 145:4 in Dy; “all his thinking,” NE; “plans,” RS, NAB] do perish.”
    John 11:11-14: “‘Lazarus our friend has gone to rest, but I am journeying there to awaken him from sleep.’ . . . Jesus said to them outspokenly: ‘Lazarus has died.’” (Also Psalm 13:3)
    What about reports made by persons who were revived after being reported to be dead and who spoke of another life?
    Normally, after a person stops breathing and the heartbeat ceases, it is several minutes before gradual cessation of the life-force in the body cells begins. If the body is subjected to severe cold, that process can be delayed for hours. For this reason, it is sometimes possible to revive persons by means of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. They were what is termed “clinically dead,” but their body cells were still alive.
    Many persons revived from “clinical death” remember nothing. Others report experiencing a floating sensation. Some say they saw beautiful things; others were terrified by their experience.
    Is there a medical explanation for any of these experiences?
    The medical editor of The Arizona Republic wrote: “When physical prowess is at its lowest ebb, as under anesthesia, or the result of disease or injury, automatic control of bodily functions diminishes accordingly. Thus, the neurohormones and catecholamines of the nervous system are released and pour out in uncontrolled quantity. The result, among other manifestations, is the hallucination, rationalized after returning to consciousness, of having died and returned to life.”–May 28, 1977, p. C-1; also the German medical journal Fortschritte der Medizin, No. 41, 1979; Psychology Today, January 1981.

  5. Consciousness:
    1a. the quality or state of being aware especially of something within oneself b: the state or fact of being conscious of an external object, state, or fact c: awareness.
    2: the state of being characterized by sensation, emotion, volition, and thought: mind.
    3: the totality of conscious states of an individual.
    As with the rest of the internal organs (heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, etc) it all just stops functioning and that’s it. Nothing.
    I understand that everbody is entitled to their own opinion, however, unless you’ve had a “near-death experience” of your own, don’t humiliate others who have by calling them names (delirious?). Religion may be “made up”, but don’t patronize those of us who are serious about being spiritual. It’s part of our life.

  6. The answer is very simple when you are logical about it.
    When you accept the absolutely provable truth, that all matter is merely condensed energy….energy that has always existed…outside of space and time…to create everything else (Space and time included) and that all things are made from this same energy….and I mean…EVERYTHING…..then it becomes simple high school physics.
    We already know that energy cannot be destroyed, it can only change it’s form.
    Therefore, your consciousness…(Being energy) cannot “Die”, it will merely change into something else….I do not speculate on what that will be, it is just enough to know 100% that it is so.

  7. Ecclesiastes 9:5: “The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.”
    Psalm 146:4: ” His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; in that day his thoughts do perish.”
