Was wanting to create a topic series where philosophical minds can come together and discuss things like the meaning of life, how the universe works and anything else anyone wishes to discuss like our own spiritual energy/aura.

Ill get the conversation started with my current belief of what happens when we die. After much meditation and reflection, I am rather confident in my beliefs that our existence or life experience is cyclical. When you die, you just reawaken reborn as a child and have forgotten everything that has happened in your previous life. My current mediation and focus has been to determine if its the exact same every single time, or if it does have variations. The only problem with variations is that even extremely small changes in choices can have rather large effects so its much easier for it to be the same every time without getting into the discussion of alternate dimensions and what not.

Still a lot to work out with the theory, but if anyone would like to discuss that or anything else, please feel free to do so. No thought or idea is too out there.

So, that is sorta my belief.

First I believe initially there was a being that was conscious, he was bored as balls, so he created the universe. That was pretty cool for awhile but when dealing with eternity, everything eventually gets old (literally).

The solution was simple, split up his personality/consciousness among billions and billions of life forms throughout time, each and every one is separate and lives out individual lives with no (or almost no) recollection of other lives they have lived.

This works well and fighting unending boredom, but the basic laws of the universe still stand.

Therefore, eventually the universe collapses back on itself, and then once again explodes. This would naturally be completely different each time, with totally different planets etc, except, it's infinite, it happens over and over and over again.

If you repeat anything enough times, you start to create a loop. Initially just the actual location of planets/matter in the universe would be the same each time, but over enough times, you would start to have the actions of every entity in the universe repeat. We may or may not be at that point already, but it is quite possible that we are reliving the same lives over and over again at this point, as well as living as every other sentient being between resets.

This would explain the feeling that you have done things before, or for-knowledge of the future occasionally etc. It also explains why sometimes if you have a close connection with someone you can feel their pain, or know when something bad happens to them etc.

While there is not a ton of evidence to support this theory, it makes logical sense, and there is no evidence to disprove it. It's fairly likely that something along these lines is exactly why we exist and is how the universe itself works.

That might make sense if the number of deaths was mirrored exactly by the number of new births. But in decades when birth rates consistently outstrip death rates year after year, where are all these extra souls coming from to fill the bodies of newborn infants? Or if births can't keep pace with deaths, just how long is this queue of souls waiting to be born again?

Only watched part of the video, but does a good job at trying to put things like time and matter into perspective. Gives more reenforcement to the idea of an almost infinite amount of universes and possibilities because time and matter can be irrelevant.

Exactly. On an infinite scale theres going to be a lot of repeatability. Maybe after experiencing something so many times somehow you are able to actually able to remember. The cyclical theory of existence explains a lot of that unexplained intuition we all experience.

its refreshing to have a zen poster here, ok?
Thank you. This board is a great place to have enlightened discussions and look forward to emulating that deep fire side atmosphere in this topic. I know that there are many posters here that are into the zen lifestyle and would love to hear their input.

Im not sure what that is since Im fairly new to this site. This is just a topic discussing life, universe, and everything and you are more than welcome to contribute to the conversation my friend.

In my theory you are not immediately reborn. You have to wait for the universal reset. When youre dead, time is irrelevant. Eventually the universe restarts and everything happens all over again. You have no recollection of that time youre out sort of like when you are asleep.

I think that when you die, you die. You personally took time to think about life and death, and you came to the conclusion that people have been hypothesizing over without evidence for 1000s of years? I wouldn't call that philosophy, I'd call it plagiarism.

Okay, so like, the worst part about Hulu ads is that they cluster them together instead of pacing them out. So like you'll get three a minute and thirty second ad blocks in a ten minute segment of a fifty minute show. And it's always more than halfway through so you're already invested. Super annoying. Space the ads out or if they're going to cluster them at least make them quick ads. Seeing a minute and a half ads followed by five minutes of content only to get hit with another ad block is THE WORST!

I dealt with very extreme night terrors through my preteens, and overcame my fear of death at the age of 13.

sometimes I just get overwhelmed just thinking about how big the universe is. Our galaxy is 126,000 light years wide and we know that there is at least one galaxy that is 6 times bigger. Then there is all the space between the galaxies...

To address the first topic you introduced, what happens after we die, I think it's nothing. We die and cease to exist or be conscious. That's the end. Our existence and consciousness begins with our birth and ends with our death. I don't believe there is anything beyond this, in a physical sense. Not to say that life is meaningless, but the only meaning we get is what we attribute to it. I don't think we continue to exist and cycle through the ages. Our thoughts and ideas and influence might, but not us.

Here's a good one on Time and the Universe that is quite mindblowing. Something we can actually consider and study in those realms - all far more fascinating (in my opinion) than pontificating on 'life after death'.

It's amazing how early the universe dies! It's a good night-time video.

If you need something a bit...opposite to wake you up, this is less in keeping with the 'philosophical' theme, but still amazing + informative:

The beginning, the end, and everything in between. We know that the beginning and end are a constant, but what about the middle?

Yes, death is the end, but it is also the beginning. Its the circle of life and not the straight line for a reason.

I highly recommend watching the movie Palm Springs on Hulu. Its an exclusive and its rather funny and insightful.

I feel like youre being a little hostile. If Im incorrect in this assumption, please forgive me but this is an open topic for the free discussion of ideas. All theories are a work in progress till they become fact.

There is no need to fear death. You will be back and see everyone and everything again. My only fear would be the type of death because some are much worse than others.

Thats whats so amazing about the universe and existence. I have trouble wrapping my head around the idea of infinity, but the vastness of existence is on that scale.

Yes. We live then die. Nothing more, but this is a cycle that repeats itself. We live the same life over and over again. Its part of the cycle of the universe and existence as a whole.

Not essentially. If you didnt sign up at the time, even if you didnt have the karma required at the time, you can never access it.

the problem? The racists and nazis and misogynists and bigots that gamefaqs now refuses to ban because theyre old accounts and their accounts are the only things they have so they just get purgatoried for awhile and come back to spew the same old bullshit.

Its a decent community now, but it just feeds these long time fucksticks.

Meditation is a way of experiencing the same release while living. Nonetheless, I think everyone has hoped for death at some point because of the escape and comfort the idea provides. Everyone's time is inevitable though, so I hope you can learn to appreciate your time here more as it's far less permanent (as far as I understand)

let me say, it sounds like you are very perceptive when its comes to dealing with individuals like sunny. hes most certainly struggling with far deeper issues, and while i dont agree with how hes dealing with it, you seem to speak his language, ok?

i hope he takes you up on your offer, ok?
