We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

I have a theory, but I want to see what you guys say first.

Your friends and family get upset and sad.

ha ha lol

Why is that funny. What are you looking for?

You get Rigor mortis and begin to decompose.

it depends if you are incinirated or buried

I wonder how long a buried body in a modern casket with embalming fluid remains preserved. It seems doing that is based on a similar thought process to mummification. Most everyone I've know who've died were cremated with their ashes spread out somewhere. 

i think it is many decades.  On some forensic shows, they occasionally have to exhume a body, decades and decades later, and most medical examners remark how well preserved the body was decades later.

could be longer...

Sorry Chris, i know you are personally facing the loss of a loved one,

but i also thought your reply was kind of funny, too, is nothing wrong with Erin's thinking it was intended to be witty, i thought same thing as Erin did when i read your reply. 

before i remembered you are going through that.

Sorry for the knee jerk reaction on that reply. I'm glad Erin laughed at it.

i think it will be just like before i was born.

 

re: "but you can't stop energy, where does the energy go?" thing...my energy will converted to heat, and leave my body, dissipating into the air around my skin as my body cools.

 

my favorite, most poetic version of death is this:  We are carbon based life forms.  This carbon was brought to earth by a star crashing into our planet.

so we are literally born of stardust.

Now, if we die, and turn to ash or dust,

and the dust could float out into the atmosphere

(now here is where poetic license is req'd = as the dust breaks out of our atmosphere)

and the dust could float on up, and regroup into a new star being born.

 

the circle is then complete.

we have a group for this, maybe some threads here to explore.

Cool

Ok here is my Theory......

Think of a Caterpillar. He/She spends it's whole (Half) life crawling on the ground, and if you could speak to one they would probably call larger insect, and mammals a type of God, or Supernatural being. And birds and other flying things as something it just cannot comprehend because everything that does not fly is somehow related to Mr Caterpillar even if it is impossibly remote. Now there is a phrase, and I am quoting here "La petite mort, French for "the little death", is an idiom and metaphor for orgasm." I am not trying to get sexual, but think of Mr Caterpillar again. When he/she decides to go into the cocoon, it knows it HAS to, but has no freakin idea why, or what will happen next if anything.
So he goes into his cocoon and some time later he emerges as a Butterfly. Something wholly alien to him, and strange. He can fly like it's god's and now it lives in a whole new world with no limitations.......ok I am not saying we are Butterflies. LOL It's an analogy.
Now if we try to slap that onto us dying..... Energy is never destroyed, it just changes. So our being, what makes us tick is energy. So when we die I think our energy leaves our body and........here comes the potentially silly part. Our energy goes out into space and enters a black hole. But wait. There are also theoretically things called "White Holes" And ask yourself what you would see if you were to pass through a Black Hole and emerge from a White Hole? You would see a blinding but comforting light, comforting because like you it is made of energy. (Beginning to sound like a few near death experiences?)
And I think THAT is our next evolutionary Step! And My (Unproven, and Unprovable) Theory!
