My theory is that if energy and matter is never ever completely gone, rather transferred into something else in some way shape or form, like a penny falling to the ground and the energy created transferred into the ground, decomposition, and so on. So this being true, would this not apply to what happens to us after we die? I mean, our mind and thoughts are created by different sorts of energy and matter, and since every other kind of energy/matter is never destroyed, why not us after death. There must still be some form of consciousness because it is never destroyed but transferred.

Now the question is will we be aware of it? We will be able to reach some state of consciousness?

The brain, after death, still has an average of 6 to 12 minutes of brain activity. What happens in that time? Do you dream? One hour in a dream could only have actually been only one second. Is that the afterlife? A lucid dream? Or is that 6-12 minutes the time it takes to go from a living conscious to a non-living conscious.

Consciousness is not energy, therefor it does not have to be transferred. The energy that is inside of us is realeased into the earth, air, or if animals were to eat us...them. As for what goes on in the brain, I have no clue.

Yeah, when I thought about it, conciousness doesn't seem to be energy, but then again, energy is used to create thoughts like neurons firing in the brain and so on. And the reason I came to the conclusion that thoughts are energy is because literally everything has some form of energy or something that can be used as energy by other things and so on. Nobody knows what exactly thoughts and the human concious is. It just made sense that if everything worked that way, why not the mind?

True that is a good thought. However I believe that the energy of your mind can only be transferred through more metaphorical means. Like the transfer of knowledge and experience from you to a younger person before you die. We should all try to pass knowledge on to evolve the human race.

That has to be the best response anyone has given me.

I believe in the Universal Conciousness which encompasses the earth like a second atmosphere, as to which we are all connected like a circuit board. Life can be compared to a circuit because all of our actions are based upon electrical discharges and it is this circuit to we return to out of physical form. Imagine a By-product produced by electricity that is no element we know of or can even trace... what kinda of element is electricity anyways???

Just one question for you intelligents out their.. Do you believe in Ghosts? because i have no idea whats real and whats not

i think of our lives as humans, in a working all together infrastructure way, as that of any other organisms. for example..... the weeed plant.. weeeeeeeeddddd plant... plant of weeed. typing is awesome when ur high :) anyways..
so a plant has thousands (guestimation) of tiny organisms in it that help it grow and work. i see humans and every other living thing on this planet as the tiny organisms inside the plant, or "world/ universe/ whatever you have it". we kind of have a set out path for us. and by us i mean humans, animals, plants,...... POT........ love it. the difference between us humans as working organisms and other animals and plants is that we have something special about us... like a soul or something or what have you. like how we can think intelegently (and i spelled that wrong lol) and are able to make decisions like "yes" or "no" and choose what we want to do. but i think that "life" in general has its own mysterious ways of forcing us into certain situations that keep us on a path. BUUUT BUT BUT. since we have this ability to CHOOSE, we can go off that path. For example, lets say when we are in a hurry or rush to get somewhere and we really need to go, but then stuff is happening thats just BS and slowing u down. like little things. u cant find ur keys, u drop the keys once u find them, the door is locked, u forget someting..... ya know (wow this guy in rambling a lot) IT CUZ IM HIGH! I DONT GIVE A FUUCK. so anyways, i forgot where i was going with this lol. add on and make comments! LETS PROVE AND SEE JUST HOW AWESOME US STONERS ARE!

i think about it like this: after you die, the time after that is infinite, so eventually somethings gonna happen

No, because with some stroke of terrible luck. You could have an infinite amount of nothing. But that would just be unfortunate and unlikely
