Life after Death
Advantages: Interesting topic
Disadvantages: I guess we'll never know
Life after death for me is quite a scary concept as I am torn between the beliefs that we are reborn as someone else, we become spirits or that we just simply become nothing.
The idea of being reborn comes from the belief and feeling that people feel a sense of deja vu in situations and when meeting people that in actual fact they've never encountered before, or not in that lifetime anyway. Many times I have come across situations whereby I have thought "have I been here before?", but maybe that's just my mind playing tricks on me?
The idea about becoming a spirit in a way is quite reassuring for me, as if I was to become a spirit, then I could watch over my loved ones and see how they are getting on with their lives. I am also a big believer that if there is such a thing as spirits, then my lost loved ones are probably watching over me, being proud at times of achievement and sad at times of misery.
The idea about becoming nothing is one that has haunted me all my life. What if I never achieve any of the things that I want to achieve before I become just nothing? What if I never see my kids grow up (if/when I have kids). The thought of dying terrifies me.
I guess we'll never know what happens after death until we encounter it, but even then we'll probably be oblivious.
