Nobody knows what death ("the undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveller returns" -Hamlet) actually is; all we know is that Jesus said when we die we go to heaven (nice) or hell (not nice).
And although the Bible describes hell as "fire", it also dexcribes it as darkness-"Ungodly men,wandering stars for whom the blackness of darkness is reserved forever" (Jude 1:4-19)
Job's expectations may interest you: " O that in She′ol you would conceal me,
That you would keep me secret until your anger turns back,
That you would set a time limit for me and remember me!
14 If an able-bodied man dies can he live again?
All the days of my compulsory service I shall wait,
Until my relief comes.
15 You will call, and I myself shall answer you.
For the work of your hands you will have a yearning. (Job 14:13-15)
BTW, do you suppose Adam and Eve did not understand what death meant? What part of "to dust you shall return" is not clear?
