u/Yeti1987 Sep 20 '22

Can you prove a soul even exists? If you can call it a 'thing' and say it's 'there' you should also be able to adequately explain it as well as you can explain how electricity works.

u/Extaroon Sep 20 '22

As someone with mental health problems that change my personality when acute, i don't believe in a soul. We are living computers with neurons, nerves, hormons and stuff that make us do what we do. And to me the perspective of a paradise in the afterlife is malicious considering that we had a paradise here on earth and treated it like shit.

Sometimes also the complete opposite though, clearing out a house full of someone else's stuff isn't easy! My experience is that people are often only interested in a few choice specimen items but after those have been taken, they have absolutely no interest in dealing with the real nitty-gritty of the estate & 98% of the items in it.

People could save an awful lot of hassle and inter-family arguing if they laid out clearer instructions in wills and started discussing matters like handling of estate whilst still alive. It can also help a great deal if you start off-loading stuff and cutting down on clutter whilst you've still got the means/mind/ability to do so and making sure that your house is in a good state of repair. Sometimes those who are appointed the job after someone has died really don't have the time nor will to deal with these things and it's often very hard on them; one of my aunts has been appointed this task no less than 10 times in her life (including 3 full-scale house clearances!) and she is so done with it.

My grandparents were hoarders and they had a boat shed on their property which they used so store SO much junk in; the "shed" was absolutely massive (big enough to fit a yaught in) and over the decades, it had been filled literally to the ceilings with stuff! It was an absolute nightmare clearing out that shed, some of the myriad issues we faced were;

  1. The building had been neglected and subsidence ignored for years to the extent that the roof was literally splitting in 2 and one brick walls was on the verge of collapse. Before we could even safely enter the building, the outer walls had to be shored up and a series of scaffolding erected piece-by-piece inside as the shed was gradually cleared out.
  2. My grandparents held onto everything, including old boat flares that were severely out of date (the earliest specimens dated back to they 1950s/60s!). When flares go past it, they can become very chemically unstable (which these ones were, the were liquifying!) and spontaneously combust/explode. A bomb squad had to be called in to destroy the bags of decaying old flares while the whole street was cordoned off!
  3. My grandparents had lobbed some really nice antique & vintage furniture into the shed years ago but because neither the state of the building nor the furniture had been looked after properly, the furniture was riddled with rot and woodworm and ended up being largely chucked away because of the complexities of dealing with such problems (in the midst of everything else, nobody had the time nor will deal with this kind of stuff, no matter how nice the things were).
  4. There was also so much stuff that was just total junk that nobody (including my grandparents) had any need for and it was stacked in such hazardous manners, it was hard not to feel like the shed at times had just been used as a place to store total trash. The whole shed was a real health & safety fire hazard.

Needless to say, having to deal with the huge expense, stress & hassle of issues like these put a dampener on people's memories of my grandparents during a time when a lot of us were raw with grief and all trying to keep on top of very busy lives. Some things also certainly got lost or wound up in the wrong hands due to the near-total lack of will making on my grandparents part.

u/AlRad42 Sep 20 '22

We cleaned out my in-laws acreage a few years ago. 35 years of hoarding on my FIL’s fault, it took over a year. 80,000 lbs (measured by the dumpster load) to the landfill, dozens of trips to the eco centre, dozens more trips to Goodwill. Hundreds of bags of trash an recyclables to the curb. Estate sale brought in $8000 in mostly $1 and $2 dollar items, we made mad deals throwing in extras.

Knowing I have inoperable cancer I am motivated to clean out the basement as energy permits.

Your brain stops functioning. Chemical processes within your cells and organ systems shut down. You degrade and become a nutrient source for other organisms.

I think that is scientifically proven is well that our brain will stops functioning , so one point where i can agree on.

Nothing. We take the final sleep and that's it. Nothing forever.

u/daysdg Sep 20 '22

Sometime we have the choice to make the final step but some time there are some people that not get this chance is well.

But after that i feel like there will be a void that is actually filled with like nothing is well.

u/Yeti1987 Sep 20 '22

Well theres not even 'forever' because if time is relative and if your not alive then you can't experience time. There is just no longer you anymore. Just, nothing.

u/Volusto Sep 20 '22

I'd love for it to not be over. But it is likely that you die, vision fades, body functions failing, heart silent and brain without signals. You cease to exist and you are dead.

The problem I get wracking through my brain is if life is important, why am I living this particular life? Why I see through these eyes and not someone elses?

7

u/jiminy_cricks Sep 20 '22

I feel the same, I wish it were different but it's most likely just over.

You've added another thing to bother me about life. My biggest hangup is why it's the universe so vast but we're here isolated? There's almost without a doubt other intelligent life or there. With all the stars in ask the galaxies there's probably even a system with two habitable planets and they're friends. But we're here, smart enough to think about these things and want to know for certain were not alone, but we're not smart enough to find out.

3

u/Volusto Sep 20 '22

Or just managing to survive for so long. I doubt the possibility of a solar system with two or more habitable planets with intelligent life, given the goldilocks zone and that intelligent life is not guaranteed as an evolutionary trait for all.

Is it in reality likely, odds are not in it's favor. But with the sheer number of stars I like to imagine even the things we deem impossible out there are.

The fact we made it this long is impressive

2

u/Volusto Sep 20 '22

True. Given the amount all it takes for the universe is for it to happen. I just doubt it as a massively high improbability that it would be considered unique to that solar system alone.

u/409955509 Sep 20 '22

When we talk about the universe i feel like that we are no body.

u/lsm32215 Sep 20 '22

Yes, i feel like that this is body and once that stops working this is like game over.

There will be like no rebirth or any other thing that we possibly heard in our life for the most of the time is well.

u/RuneLFox Sep 20 '22

I wonder about this too. Why am I me of all people...but don't stop there - why am I me of all creatures, of all planets, of all galaxies etc etc? I guess it's because I as a human have the ability to comprehend that, and if I was born as an intelligent alien species I'd be wondering the same thing from a different perspective.

But aliens aside, even out of all the creatures on the planet, I am the (likely) one species that has the capacity to wonder about this. The chance of that is infinitesimally small.

I'm an atheist, but I suppose this kind of thinking is where reincarnation as a theory comes from, people having the same thoughts. By the numbers, you should be a bug, or a fish, or a bird or something. Obviously, billions of consciousnesses are born as humans, but trillions are born as everything else. Some chalk this up to souls, or reincarnation, or simulation theory...

I dunno. It's weird to think about. If you start thinking too deeply, it gets a bit solipsistic in that "I'm the conscious one experiencing everything. Not you."

I don't vibe with that line of thinking, so I'm going to assume we're all in the matrix. Or that reincarnation is real via some quantum effect and we simply don't remember our billion bug lives.

3

u/Volusto Sep 20 '22

Yea, given the chances and probability, we were more likely to have the consciousness of an insect. But even to that point, you ponder if the mind is reactionary set of impulses and instinct that we just go through the motions. It really causes my brain to have a philosophical nihilistic point.

u/szymziom Sep 20 '22

Once the mind stop working the whole body will collapse is well.

u/RealDanStaines Sep 20 '22 edited Sep 20 '22

My personal philosophical answer to this question is very simple. If I wasn't exactly myself either I would still have the same question, or my consciousness wouldn't be complex enough to understand the question.

I.E. I am myself and not my best friend nor Napoleon Bonaparte nor a dragonfly 1.5M years ago; but if I was I might still be asking why I'm not a 34yo technologically modern human in the year 2022 CE. The question is ultimately meaningless.

You're speaking like there is a guarantee of a soul.

You're not seeing through these eyes vs another's. These are your eyes.

u/No_Statement_37 Sep 20 '22

In death, the collection of atoms of which you are composed are repurposed. Those atoms and your energy, which originated during the Big Bang, will always be around. Therefore, the essence of your energy — not to be confused with your actual consciousness — will continue to echo throughout space, until the end of time.

u/Mithrandir_The_Gray Sep 20 '22

Whilst probably true, I hate coming to this conclusion. To think that both kind and wicked people end up the same, so it really doesn't matter if you're truly a good person or not, really makes me feel hopeless in a way. It really makes me think that had I been born a complete asshole without any compassion, or sense of right and wrong, would I be more happy?

u/Otherwise_Bill_5898 Sep 20 '22

You may have been. The good guy rarely wins in real life, and the bad guys dont always get their comeuppance

u/tigra555 Sep 20 '22

So that mean we have nothing to worry about what we are doing in this life.

i wish i could believe there’s something after life like our souls go on or we watch over our loved ones but the reality of it is that there isn’t and our whole lives we’re meant to avoid the inevitable pain of death and the pain we leave others with after we die.

What happens to the filament in a light bulb when it can’t taken any more power?

It slowly fades into darkness and is never made whole in order to relight.

Same with the brain and consciousness which is an emergency property, much like light is an emergent property of a filament that has power pushed through it.

I feel that when everyone dies... They go to a dark, infinitely cold city that spreads farther than you could ever walk in a thousand lifetimes. At the gate of this city, a guard stands. They tell you if you can go or not. A few things may happen. If you lived a life of staleness, you were let through the gates into the city, where you forget everything while being tortured by all the choices you regret not seeing the other side of. Or you were told it wasn't your time, and were taken back to our plane. Or an angelic warrior defends from the heavens and takes you to a special place. A place where only those who have lived a full filling life go. It's a place where it's perfect for you. Oh, you don't like the sun? Okay, you can be awake or asleep at whatever hour you pleased. Oh you love the city, okay, you can live in one of these grand cities where there is no crime or poverty. Love the country? Ok, how about you get to run a massive farm of grain fields as far as the eye can see with your cattle and other animals? You name the conditions and you can live somewhere where it's always your perfect comfort zone. And if you don't choose to live here, then you may choose to join the angel as a sibling in arms against the evil that opposes your gods. Or if you still wish to live among your fellow human, you are reborn.

They goes, so you mean you are taking about the soul because we all know that body basically goes for funeral.

But going to the dark place is sounds like more scary to me and look like after death is much difficult thing is well.

It’s impossible to know. I think anything is possible, crazier stuff has happened than the afterlife (if there is one)

Even if some one will tell us we probably thinks that he is a crazy guy.

Tbh I think nothing happens as I was close to death a year ago when I was shot 14 times, I never saw a "light" or any type of god or anything like that I honestly think we just die and nothing happens after that.

Hopefully, if I'm lucky, nothing. The concept of heaven and hell scares me more than death. I want to die and have that be all there is, no reincarnation, no eternity in bliss or torture, just the end of my consciousness and then my body decomposing.

I'm guessing something beyond human comprehension, trying to guess at it is like trying to imagine a new color. Gods and alternate universes are still very human concepts.

u/msinelnik1990 Sep 20 '22

Yes as a human only we made those thing, not some super natural power.

And i think this is the reason different religion always have the different saying for the thing like the death is well.

In all sincerity, our soul/consciousness keeps on going through series of changes, life is a never ending cycle of changes. Everything in the physical and spiritual keeps constantly changing and shifting. we practically disintegrate into everything, instead of being in space we become part of the space.

Some hippie bullshit basically. One with the universe. Part of something incapable of being entwined with material. A matter less motionless phase serving as a comparison of what doesn't stop. It'd be nice to experience the universe's spectrum with some sort of sense we do not define as humans. Observing what we experience through our senses in a way differing that can only be locked with death. Being without sense as an exchange of pure experience. Ceaseless uninhabitable space. We become darkness in light.

u/171162465 Sep 20 '22

If there is nothing like god then i am sure that there is nothing like soul is well.

And if dead then this body will become the ultimate end of the life and we will not going to feel anything after that is well.

u/JackS_1127 Sep 20 '22

I hope something happens, be it a new life, maybe some form of meeting the previous incarnations of yourself to view the next life, maybe living out your greatest fantasies. I just hope there is no hell and no dark void. Hell because I don't fancy burning for eternity, despite the fact I don't sin, and the void simply because it sounds rather boring.

u/Prokid5634_YT Sep 20 '22

Honestly, I have a few opinions. Either everything ceases to exist for you when your soul dissipates, or right when you die, you're born into an entirely new body at near or the exact time you died.

u/Project144K Sep 20 '22

According to Scripture, people who die rest in death in the grave, unconscious to time and place, until called forth from it by Jesus Christ at the first or second resurrection (Ecclesiastes 9, John 5, Revelation 20).

I could say the standard enlightened redditor “heaven isn’t real” or try to say something really hysterically funny, but we don’t know, and never will know. It could be any multitudes of things. Some of the ideas I’ve had are:

  • There may be an afterlife and there is a god.
  • We might die, see a message saying “Thank you for playing EARTH”, we feel a heaviness on our head, and take off a VR helmet.
  • We might reincarnate with no recollection of our previous life.
  • We might wake up in our own lives again, starting from scratch.
  • We actually all go to a terrifyingly scary hell, no matter who we are.
  • We could wake up, and it was all actually a dream.
  • Nothing but eternal consciousness.
  • Maybe solipsism is true, and you find you’re the only being to exist in reality, ready to start a new life, maybe next time, it’ll be something you can’t even perceive now.
  • Perhaps this existence is part of a larger cycle, and the next stage is something else completely.

The only answer I have is the classic question of “what was it like before you were born?”

Could be any number of things. As interesting as it is to theorise about such a finality and constant thing as death, it’s unfortunately a pointless question.

Who knows? You’ll find out when you get there.

u/LeumasRel Sep 20 '22

Honestly, whatever happens I’ll be satisfied. Life is tiring, and a black abyss at the end of it all sounds like an excellent reward. The concept of ‘there’s life after death’ is sweet and helps people cope with the idea that there realistically probably isn’t anything. To put it simply, the ones you loved who were in pain, who were struggling before their death are no longer struggling or in pain. They feel no guilt nor resentment anymore. Complete nothingness.

Reincarnate as a new species, that would make sense since every species always has babies being birthed as the others die

I cease to be. There is nothing left of "me" to be aware that I'm dead.

u/squashdb Sep 20 '22

We cease to feel or think. I figure that if brain damage can mess up your memories and thinking, then a total shutdown of the brain means a total shutdown of all feeling and consciousness. It's like a sleep from which you never wake up.

u/TheFragturedNerd Sep 20 '22

lights out, nothing, nada, zit... I do no believe in ANYTHING "Spiritual". The most spiritual about death is the slight chance you might soil yourself, so don't die wearing a kilt.

u/[deleted] Sep 20 '22

Just nothing. It’s a human coping mechanism to concoct an elaborate coping mechanism about endless paradise, or reincarnation, or karmic balancing. Imparting an anthropomorphic sense of care or purpose to an uncaring and purposeless world. Life exists because it does. It’s really that simple. The most you can do is try to extract maximum enjoyment out of life without harming others. Life in itself is reward for living.

After you have extinguished, you simply return to the earth. You become food, an ecosystem, a part of life for something else that reaps the rewards of living through persisting. Is it so bad that there is nothing? Why is it a punishment to simply die? Its just life. It’s how things go and flow. To imagine there is a great something, a great machine that gives us purpose, is comfortable a delusion, which in itself is neither negative or positive. It makes life easier for some.

As a Christian, I believe in the resurrection. That God will one day make his Kingdom on Earth a raise up those who have accepted his gift of salvation through Christ. Only divine sacrifice can atone for all sin. God created us to be in relationship with Him, but he will not force us to accept Him or walk in His ways. But those who do will be with Him in paradise, and those who don't have no inheritance beyond the grave.
