Just as real as the old fear that a demon can enter the human body while yawning and posses our mortal body. Hmmmmm.....yea ok. Tis just ancient myths fabricated by past generations that had little to no understanding about science, nature and thought that, anything good must have come from God and anything bad was the work of Satan.


Remember this fact - people once believed that thunder was God's way of showing his anger and that angels lived in the clouds above.


It's all mumbo jumbo.

The American dream................never got a proper burial.

  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

If Death is just an image that takes you to the afterlife, I'd prefer a valkyrie thanks.

Of course I'd have to die fighting to get into Valhalla... hummmm...

Then there is always Pratchett's Death. He makes the show if the various BBC shows based on Pratchett, such as the Hoggfather.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

I like the idea as presented by Pratchett of Death as both a function of a universe and (basically) a guy doing a job, he has a family (albeit adopted) a hobby (humanity) and basic interests in the smooth running of things. He even goes to (fancy dress) parties.

Then there's Gaiman's Death - she's a perky goth (think Abby from NCIS) who is basically the first person we ever meet and the last person we ever meet. Some people have expanded the DC "Death" role to various people/characters implying that Goth Death is just one of a pantheon - but she's Death to death and the universe not (as some writers have insisted) "death as a natural part of life".

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Do you really think you see these white, misty bits? You should set up a camera and prove it! ;)

Yes I really think I see these misty white bits. Besides the disrespectful and unethical matters involved with taking pictures in a pts room, even if such a thing was possible I'm sure I'd be accused of it being smoke or something, though they look nothing like that.

Having been on here since 2004 talking about my yowie contact and other spiritual stuff, I've learnt I don't need to prove anything to anyone on these boards I don't know any of you and don't care if you think I'm crazy. :wacko:   :innocent:  It's what you know in heart and mind to be true that's most important.

I don't think you are crazy. No proof needed. I'm not really trying to dispute what you have said. I was just adding a suggestion, sorry if it came off sarcastic. I've had my share of "paranormal" experiences in my time.  :alien:

You're right, you're not required to prove anything and I'd say most don't think you are crazy.  The white bits could be as you say or they could be illusions, floaters or other.  There really is no way to tell without something to back it up.  You should continue to talk about your experiences on Um but they can't be accepted as fact without supporting evidence.

Death is a force of nature. It visits every living being eventually. People perceive the force as a dark figure because we like to humanise everything. If we were all canines, we might perceive a black or dark dog. If you are sensitive, the dark figure may appear to you in the presence of a dying person. If the figure appears in the presence of a living person it can mean the dying process has already begun, and this is what can happen before a freak accident and also with a person slowly dying of cancer or a disease.

The Grim Reaper is just a man-made personification of death, nothing more nothing less.

She stands out in a crowd, she thinks out loud to save her breath, with a portrait of her parents death.

they are not ghosts, they are creatures, angels, spirits or gods.

Creatures? Think of the "spirit" of a person as an intelligent energy.

And about to think right outside of the box: How does our brain have an electrical current? It's not just magically there..

Something must be going on that we simply have no discovered yet.

Death is often given the name Grim Reaper and, from the 15th century onwards, came to be shown as a skeletal figure carrying a large scythe (A harvesting tool) and clothed in a black cloak with a hood. It is also given the name of the Angel of Death or Devil of Death or the angel of dark and light. The reaper is said to been seen at your first moment of death, it will look over your life to see if you are to go to Heaven or Hell. Some people also say there are many more than one Reaper as it would be hard with many deaths per day.  
Itís kind of hard to believe in cases of why are there ghosts around us then? But what do you guys think?
Thanks.

Death and what happens after death is a fascinating topic. ;)
