Life,  aka the soul or the life force or whatever else you wish to call it,  is a form of energy that we do not understand which is held in a materal container ( like water in a cup).  Death is the release of that energy  ( like pouring out the water in the cup)  the container usually  remains ( for a time) But the energy  that it held is gone. like a cup of water if the container is damaged the contents escape and go elsewhere and even if the cup is Not damaged the water will eventually evaporate leaving the container empty.

My mom used to say that the body is just the sack the potatos come in. When I was a kid I would roll my eyes when she said it, now that I'm older I hope I'm as wise as she was.

Death and senescence can best be explained as a curse especially when it is not required but it is programmed in our genetics.Ofcourse unless there is an eternal soul just dying to escape the material body,then death wouldn't really be a curse but a type of liberation.

Death means going back home.

Death is the point of your physical life when your soul(life essence) leaves your body and the Silver Lining breaks. Your soul lives on but your body is no longer alive.

Life with God is joy, peace, love, truth and goodness.  Without God there is misery, chaos, anger, lies and evil.

Firstly, welcome to the forums, SRP!

But I don't believe that there is a God and my life is joyful, peaceful, loving, etc. But there are many devout people that live in third world circumstances (i.e miserable, chaotic, angry, etc.)

But I should get back on topic. For me death isn't just a physical thing. Death can be tragic or welcomed.

Death, for me, isn't just my 'mortal coil' coming to an end. It also involves the circumstances in which I cease to be. We avoid, the best that we can, the tragic circumstance. I hope that when my time is up, I welcome it.

But I don't really care what happens after that.

Edit to add: I shouldn't have said, "I don't believe that there is a God". As an agnostic, I should have said, "I don't have a belief in God."

Actually there are two deaths, First death and Second death.

At first death, human is divided into 3 parts that he has been made of: Breath of life (Ruach) returns to God, your soul (Nephesh) goes to sleep, any your physical body stops functioning and starts decomposing.
While asleep, your soul doesn't think or feel anything. Your soul will then be awaken by the trumphet at the return of God, and will await the Judgement. You will have opportunity to rethink your life and see all things you did good or evil. After Judgement, if you are saved, then you will go to heaven, have eternal life and teach other sentient beings about your experiences of sin and life. If you're not saved, your soul will cease to exist in a lake of fire by experiencing second death.

Death is the end of the life that you live and you get in the line for one more new world life.
This process keeps up until you discover your godhood.

I keep my version of death nice and easy. When you cannot make any more actual choices and no part of you can change anymore. From nothing to nothing. (Blame zombies :P)

As believer of Waqefataa Death is part of our Uma / nature. As magnetic south pole and  north pole in balance , it should be death and life.

    Im not going to tell you how to live your life i'm only going to suggest how you should.

Posted 12 November 2012 - 02:32 AM

If literal then it's when you die. Spiritual. It's when God or yourself allows you to become something more. You allow yourself to progress to the next stage of life and learn and become whole with yourself again.

Death is the equalizer elixir to make of everyone to be the same as before he or she was born. Hitler died and so did Mother Teresa. What is the difference between them now? None. The difference between human beings is seen only during the years of life. There are no stages of life. Every human being who is born, he or she is a newborn person to live only once and never to return. If you ask me, that's a consolation to many religious preconceived notions that only cause depression and anxieties.

Death is when you stop living, your brain stops producing electrical impulses and quickly liquifies; your body follows suit...that is the start of decomposition.
