I believe that what is happening can be called Scientific Samsara. She is much more beautiful than she is artistically described by various religions. One state flows into another and this continues, in the direct sense, endlessly. And all this is thanks to Physics, and not because a person goes to church
Strange as it may sound, but with each in different ways. This is influenced by cultural and religious affiliation, and personal experience, and the level of self-awareness.
in order to ask about death, one must assume that someone was born.
if a person asks the question "who am I", then he can point his finger towards your body and tell a story with which no one else will agree, because everyone lived, albeit a joint period of time, in different ways.
if we discard all subjective (personal history) and random information (name, surname, date of birth) and look for who lives it all, who remembers all this passing information of thoughts and emotions? then all that can be found is a neutral, impersonal consciousness, which is unlimited, never born or died.
"a person living his life" is a set of ideas, stories.
this attention, which through the conditioning of the mind, is directed to a specific body, which "stands out" from the entire perceived picture and is called "I". whereas from direct, direct experience there is no knowledge of the next thought, the next feeling or even the next movement of the body - it is all registered with a delay, as a fait accompli, without the possibility of predicting what the next one will be. these actions are considered "mine" retroactively, on the assumption that there is a certain separate self who controls all this behind the scenes, whereas, in fact, it cannot be found as if not to look for it. moreover, in search of this kind I will go out again to look for myself somewhere there, curiosity)
in the absence of me, the personal story loses its meaning, and nothing is better or more interesting (or more real) than the story of a neighbor.
this can be compared to waking up from sleep.
in the morning a night's sleep is just a story, and if it is over, it does not mean that someone has died.
p. from. and the body itself does not know "me" nor death.
life passes from one state to another without any preference.
"my" microbes will not miss me :)
A believer will tell you that death is followed by an afterlife or rebirth, an atheist - that nothing will happen. Until you die, you won't know. And it is better not to rush to die, but to take the maximum out of the life that is, proceeding from the fact that it is the only one. We always have time to die, why spoil what will happen next? :)
