Death, being dead, afterlives and other nonsense!! Dear scientists!!! What do you think happens to you when you die? By which I mean, according to physics what happens to the mind? I have this strong belief that the mind can't die, in some senses of the word. I don't actually mean in the sense of lingering in people's thoughts but I think that it doesn't matter right now what my personal belief about how exactly I will exist. So what does current science rule out? I am also concerned to a lesser extent about if I have a grounded belief on what happens when I die without scientific proof (for what it's worth I don't really mean appeals to any scripture)? OK thanks :-) Edited to add that while I don't want to be insulted, I'd be very happy to hear a rubbishing of any religious beliefs. I just want to know in what ways I will not exist when I die / what ways I will. According to science. And / or if that's just a question for science. I'm really sorry if this doesn't make sense.
