Death is just a membrane away. And what then? Heaven or oblivion? Perhaps oblivion is hell but you’d have to be conscious. That would appear to be a contradiction. So there is consciousness or nothing. Conscious of what? On the other hand oblivion is hard to believe in. ‘Is that all there is?’ (Peggy Lee) What was the point of being here if there’s nothing else. (Tangent: unless all of this is an accident. And the universe has a sense of humor.) Terror, monsters from the deep scenarios are created. Anything is better than nothing. Of course people have their faith. But what does faith matter unless what you believe is the reality we live in? Someone tells me ‘we’ll find out, won’t we?’ And that’s the point. Maybe not.
