^Do you think something will happen to you after you die?

Why should it?

Buddhists dont believe anything of the sort. Well...I guess the do but only at a very very basic level.

The BUDDHIST ideal is that whilst you may be reborn as a person or a god or an animal or a blade of grass or whatever, you never really existed in the first place. Every person has a concept of "Self" but according to Buddhists this is just the name we give to an amalgamation of "stuff". Like putting some bits of metal together and calling it to car. If that car dies and you recycle it into another car - that's not that same car is it?

There was no car in the first place. Just bits of metal arranged in a certain way. Buddhists dont fear death because they believe they are just part of the natural workings of nature, so in some way they already are immortal.

though sometimes there may be flaws with immortality such as if you are made immortal in that state and you cannot do anything about it

I've come into this discussion late...but oh well.

For me, I wouldn't choose immortality. It doesn't seem appealing to me. Unless I got to be with someone I love, have money, etc...then it'd be perfect, so I might choose otherwise.

But I don't think I'd want to die because I don't believe in an afterlife, really. I'm still confused about what I believe as far as what happens when we die--I think it's the uncertainty of what will happen to me that makes death unappealing, as well.

Immortality is a myth, there is a story that involves an alchemist, he solved the mystery of the Philosopher's Stone and the Crimson Elixir, he consumed it and is said to be living among us today, but as usual it's nuthin' more than yer childhood story, but immortality doesn't seem to excitin', livin' forever makes you see the burden all around ya, you start to realize that there is no define point to living so long, it's just like a seein' what lies beyond the blackhole? Or if there is life out there where is it? just like the life's long asked questions.

i dont know what i would choose because if you are immortal then you would be seeing all of your friends and family die around you but if you choose death then you might not be able to do what you have always wanted.

ill choose immortality i think.

if i were to fall in love and stay in love i would choose death but only if my love died first saveing them the horrid pain of greiving(SP) but other wise, if no love , then i would like to live until i wanted to die ,and only if i had control of how i aged,

the reason for this being that i could see (ALL) of the world, hopefly before it is destroyed by us




(sorry about this being so wordy)in my oppinion
