Death brings context to life

I do believe that as more and more professionals come forward and talk about their NDEs that it will become harder to discount them.  In a physicalist, universe these kinds of experiences would be impossible.  However, I do understand that "Confirmation Bias" However, I do understand that "Confirmation Bias" can be an issue with any conversation that deals with seeking the truth, I suffer from it.

Jeffery Long has actually stated that the NDE proves the existence of God and the afterlife.  Here is a site for his book, a good read.  Not sure I agree with him, but I do believe that these experiences have always been with mankind, and that is the reason that belief in God, and the afterlife has developed.

I don't think about death much or what will happen to me after I die.  I'm just concerned about living my life to the fullest now.

Wise, however, it is good to know that we are here for a short time, I believe it gives urgency to life and helps us to develop good values. 

Peace

I'm forty years of age, currently.  I figure that I'll probably live to around eighty years old, or something like that.

To me, eighty years isn't a short time.  But I see what you are saying, Mark.

Regarding NDE's, I really think NDErs envision according to their beliefs. That's why I think that it's fundamental to identify, remove/add, optimize our beliefs, which are our tools. A sculptor doesn't admire his/her chisel (tool/belief) but the outcome: the statue (for example), i.e. what the sculptor created thanks to that tool. Now compare the chisel and the statue. One can own different kinds of chisels/beliefs.

 

There's a subtle perspective in my country (France) regarding what a being is before and after death (I mean the death one cannot recover from).

Imagine a man, John. Imagine he's alive. Imagine he's sleeping: we can see John, he exists, he's alive.

But suddenly, he gets a serious heart attack and dies in his sleep. From that precise time, John is not any longer. We say: ""John was like this or like that". We can still see John's (dead) body. We just see a corpse, but not John, who doesn't exist any longer.

Then the funeral. John's body was buried but John was not buried: John ceased to exist from the moment he died.

So what is a human? A body? More than a body? Not a body? What? A construct? To me, that is how death brings context to earthly life forms (and maybe to all life forms).
