The bit where it says you reset and live life over and over, but the people around you such as your family don't die and reset at the same time you do. So if your mother was still alive after you, if you reset then she would also have to reset at the same time for your lives to be in sync. Do you know what I mean? Everyone dies at different times.

I think the key is to look at the whole concept of "time" a little differently. The people around you would indeed "reset" too but only from YOUR perspective.

I understand the Huffington Post article really well now but It's soooo hard to explain it further haha. Pay careful attention to the part where he says "And when I see Mr. O'Donnell's old shop, I know that somewhere the chimney cap is still going round and round, squeak, squeak. But it probably won't rattle for long."

Been sitting here for an hour trying to think of a response that makes sense but it's a pretty weird concept. It will make more sense the more you think about it though. My head hurts now so I think I'll stop. :p

Based on the observation of someone committing suicide, would that mean we could perceive different outcomes, too? Like, we see a guy standing on a building top and he jumps off. Based on probability the man could survive the fall or, obviously, be killed by it. Could that mean when the guy lands, everyone who saw it have parallel universes split off from their's with a different version of the outcome? The outcome could definitely affect the outcome of the observer's life, too, considering I know some people who have been messed up by witnessing a suicide.

Did you watch the Jet Li movie yet? This stuff is fun to think about for a movie or whatever, but in your real life, you're never going to know until it happens. But it is good to ask questions and find meaning.

FYI The Huffing Post is not really credible because they will let any nutjob write an article if he has the right amount of clout and money.

I personally do believe that once you die, it's over. When you go in for a surgery you're completely sedated to the point where you don't dream, don't feel any pain, but you are still alive and breathing. Your heart is still beating, your brain is still partially functioning. But, short of a full on coma, this is as close to death as one can get without going all the way. I don't think there's actually souls of magical light in our bodies because if there was, we'd know that all matters of undead would actually exist. A soul, binding its way into either its original body or someone else's corpse and controlling it to some degree would be all the norm because nothing is perfect and just like bugs in computer programming, there's bound to be a percentage of souls that don't disperse normally or as intended upon death. I could only think that a soul in particular would only have enough power to twitch fingers or toes or maybe the mouth, but not enough to raise itself up like a fictional zombie.

I'm sure at one point or another it's crossed everyones mind what death is like and if there's another "side". I used to dream of a place where I could meet all the famous dead people you've only read about in books, all the animals and friends and family you know throughout your life would be there too, far far away from the troubles of this world. A heaven that would exist simply as you would want it to exist, within your ability to create or dream. But as I've gotten older, I've shifted away from that and simply accept that I'll never truly know the answer until the moment comes that it would be my turn to pass. It is simply a shame that once our bodies expire, everything we've ever known, everyone we've ever loved, everything we've ever done will simply to cease to be. It will have no meaning to you anymore. History as a whole, is and isn't. It exists so long as you are alive to comprehend it, when you die it disappears. Think about it, if all life was stricken from Earth, and if life was to never inhabit the planet again, than it would be as if history never happened. It's kind of like the tree in the woods theory, but that's for another place and time.

I know a few people who flat lined and they claimed to seen Jesus before they were revived.

I always wondered if thats true.

I read an article in Time magazine, they had a whole subject on it. Long story short, Heaven is basically how you perceive it. If you believe in God, he'll be there. If you don't, then he won't. But your life now, revolves around how heaven would be. Not sure how that really works, but this subject is kinda touchy when there's hardly any information on death.

If you believe in heaven then your last few moments would be at peace (or maybe even excitement?).. What you believe can't change what physically happens to you.

If you believe in nothingness after death, then that's also just peaceful.. unless you're dying way too young.
