Watch the course and learn what death is (read the material to get a deeper understanding, too).

Death is another dimension just like life is a dimension. What happens in death may just be another life with our soul moving on.

Personally I think when you die, you're dead (<- logic) and the electrical currents in your brain (which is you) stops flowing and you're gone forever.

Death is: never finding out what happens when you die.

life and death are like - and +. Example: -a+a=0 .

Life has always seemed to me like a plant that lives on its rhizome. Its true life is invisible, hidden in the rhizome. The part that appears above the ground lasts only a single summer. Then it withers away—an ephemeral apparition. When we think of the unending growth and decay of life and civilizations, we cannot escape the impression of absolute nullity. Yet I have never lost the sense of something that lives and endures beneath the eternal flux. What we see is blossom, which passes. The rhizome remains.

Thanks for the link! I plan on following the lecture. Does Yale have other recorded classes?

You have already been dead for an infinite amount of time... before you were born. After you are alive, you die and it is identical to what you experienced before you were born. Absolutely nothing!

Nothing dies if it hasn't been born yet. If what you're saying is true then rocks are dead... but they aren't because they've never been born. Death refers to the end of life. Not the time before life begins. Further to that, how are you so sure about what you've stated? Have you experienced any of the before birth or after death states? No, you haven't because in both states you're neurons are either unformed or... dead.
