@JLNobody,
You have the sequence right. I'm sure there are many ways to answer that question depending on the individual's personal life experiences.

As you probably know, many Asian cultures believe that the dead still hear and see what is being communicated to them. Maybe, there's some truth in trying to see what we are doing against what our ancestors expectations are from the living.

@cicerone imposter,
Ghastly thought! But I thik there are some societies that believe illness is sent as punishment from ancestors for non-traditional behavior.

@JLNobody,
I also believe in karma.

Quote:
kar·ma/ˈkärmə/Noun
1. (in Hinduism and Buddhism) The sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.
2. Destiny or fate, following as effect from cause.

@cicerone imposter,
What makes you think I believe in "Karma"?

I notice that Goedel never published the "proof". Perhaps it was, a finger-exercise, or an attempt to understand other people's ontological proofs by formalizing a version of them.

@JLNobody,
I didn't say you believed in karma.

@cicerone imposter,
O.K., sometimes I'm so insecure.

@aussie mark,
RICOMINCIARE a muovere la materia...
La morte non è una fine, ma è un inizio.
Non esiste una fine di qualsiasi genere ma esiste un inizio di un inizio.
Nello stesso momento in cui comincia la decomposizione di un corpo comincia una vita, cominciano tante altre vite o tramite le molecole che si disperdono nell’aria o tramite quelle che si disperdono nella terra.
Nessun atomo viene in quel senso perduto.
Ogni erba che cresce sopra un corpo morto è una parte di quello, ogni insetto che fa’ contatto con quel corpo morto porta dentro di sé una parte di esso.
Qualsiasi essere vivente che abbia avuto un contatto con quel liquido che la terra ha assorbito, si sviluppa con qualche molecola che apparteneva a quel corpo sepolto. Lo stesso meccanismo chimico e fisico accade anche con le molecole di quel corpo senza vita che si disperdano nell’aria.
Un corpo sepolto nella terra diventa un concime.
L’animale o qualsiasi altro essere vivente che arriva a nutrirsi con quell’erba cresciuta con quel concime, prende sempre qualcosa di quel copro.
Posso dire con certezza che abbiamo tanti fratelli e sorelle di diversa materia che non possiamo neanche immaginare, perché, ad esempio, l’erba si sviluppa e moltiplica così come si moltiplicano tutti gli insetti e tutta la materia che abbia avuto un contatto con la molecola appartenente a quel corpo.
Ogni processo sia chimico o biologico di quel corpo senza vita è sempre un inizio di un movimento e ogni movimento che dipende da quell’essere è un qualcosa di quel “cominciare e non finire”.
Non per niente certe religioni, dicono di stare attenti dove si mettono i piedi per non scacciare qualche nostro parente.

@MyViewpoint,
bro. we HAVE proof that the universe exists. the proof?
well lets just say i just answered my own question right there.
god? no proof. find me a bearded man in the sky that brings his son back from the dead, and i will become christian. wait.
wont we all?
my point is ( and i seem to keep saying it over and over again).
all the misery in this world isnt the reason god doesnt exist.
all the wars, the pain, the hurting and killing, thats not why gos does NOT exist. if god did exist, it would all still be this way.
no, no. god doesnt exist because of the lack of self-respect man gives itself.
"oh, we magically appeared oi our world? who did this?"
"i dont know. probably some really powerful guy up there"
"oh, okay".
touch the ground, man. breath the air. make a mistake.
make this mistake of not blaming your life on a theoretical force.
look for answers.
oh no. dont kill Galileo, or other great minds. find where you come from instead of being lazy and writing a novel about it.
"spoiler alert: the guy dies at the end."

"What is the purpose of life after death?" is as meaningful (or meaningless) as "What is the purpose of life before birth?"

@cicerone imposter,
A little levity is good for the soul.

Sent to me by a friend in Tanzania.

Quote:
A popular motivational speaker addressing his audience said: "The best Years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who wasn't my wife!"

The audience was in silence and shock. The speaker added: "And that woman was my mother!"

Laughter and Applause

A week later, a top manager trained by the motivational speaker tried to crack this very effective joke at home. He was a bit foggy after a drink. He said loudly to his wife who was preparing dinner, "The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who was not my wife!" The wife went; "ahhhh!" with shock and rage.

Standing there for 20 seconds trying to recall the second half of the joke, the manager finally blurted out "...and I can't remember who she was!"

By the time the manager regained his consciousness, he was on a hospital bed nursing first degree burns from boiling cooking oil.

Moral of the story: Don't copy if you can't paste!
