You are a moron then. There are more optimistic beliefs than the ones you hold.
Haha, don't think so. I believe I am eternal--have no beginning and no end. I believe I chose to come to Earth to teach and learn about love. I believe after death I can continue to choose to experience whatever I want. What view is more optimistic then that?

Would you mind spelling out what is pessimistic about life having an end.If we are eternal in that we are concious forever in one form or another this makes absolutely everything we do in this world and 'the next' pointless beyond belief
I only know by experience. Experience tells me that believing in no afterlife makes me unhappy. Believing in an afterlife makes me happy. It would be really stupid of me to believe in something that makes me unhappy.

I don't get it.So do you really believe that when you die, your soul physically comes out of your body. It has eyes and can look around and create memories inside of your real body (yes, it has the ability to alter neural connections within your brain while standing outside of it and from a distance). So this soul, instead of flapping it's wings and going up to heaven, decided to stick around and watch the operation a bit. Do you really think that heaven is a physical place that the soul has to go to? Do you think that it is of this plane of existence so the soul, upon exiting the body, literally exits the body and goes toward heaven? You think the soul literally walks out of a body, like in the movies, and can choose to stand around and watch people?Or could it possibly be the fact that the person, while unconscious, was able to hear certain things and pieced those things together in an unconscious state to form a memory. She heard a drilling noise, which sounded exactly like a dentist's drill, and thought she remembered a dentist like tool, or an electrical toothbrush or whatever. And she heard what people were saying and was somehow able to piece together in her dreamlike state the events that were taking place. Also, she added her grandmother and a vortex or something pulling her up into heaven. But my dreams are weird too, so I don't blame her.
Lol. Physically, no. Yes I believe all life has a non-physical "soul" and hangs out in another dimension.It has been documented that she could not physically hear or see anything. All three brain tests were negative for brain function. Even hallucinations would have registered.
