If I had to live forever, I'd dedicate my time to making a database of all knowledge, maybe make a physical library there too. Just keep at it forever. 

 

It would give me something to do. 

 

Honestly I kind of want to do that anyway.

 

But there's wikipedia. 

 

I would only allow people who have a degree and a career in the field to update the page that is relevant to their knowledge. 

 

And I would make a data base of studies and what not as well. It'd be subscription based, and you can see so many articles in one month on the basic subscription, to prevent abuse. 

 

And I would establish a foundation for studying things.

 

Alternatively, I would just make games for all of eternity.

This can't be "all there is," can it?  I mean, there has to be something more out there...

Just because you want there to be more is not a good reason to act as if there is more. So enjoy it now and worry about the afterlife, which I highly doubt exists, when its time to worry about an afterlife (which is not while your living).

Naw...I believe in an afterlife.  I've had "weird experiences" having to do with the spiritual world.  Most people won't believe me, so... never mind.  I know that something is out there.

I don’t believe there is an afterlife, and I personally take comfort in the belief that I won’t have to live with myself or anything else forever. I can risk making mistakes because it won’t be long before everything I’ve ever done is forgotten anyway.

I feel like I've lived many lives and my soul is old and tired, but at the same time I believe here and now is all that matters.

So yeah, no effing clue.

Me too. I believe in this.

I don't see it as extremely important because I know I could be wrong, also because it doesn't matter much anyway.

Are we even alive? what does alive mean? Does here even exist? does time exist? what if it's all some cosmic joke? Do other people exist? If we go by my own experience, then I am the only one to exist. Everyone and everything else is just imagination. I am imagination too. Do I even exist? "I think therefore I am" doesn't take into account that we don't know what "am not" would be in this situation. Do I stop existing becasue I'm asleep? Unconscious? blackout drunk? It's just an incorrect ascertation to say that thinking is equivilent to being. What is being? I've been told that being is consciousness, but who are we to label that as being? If consciousness is being, then the best way to be is to stimulate myself as much as possible to maximize this, and that just seems absurd.

If I exist only in your imagination, does that means you created me? 😮 

If you created me, why did you do it? Do I have to be mad at you for creating me in your imagination that I can also experience? Does this mean you'll give me cake eventually? (only chocolate, thanks).  :P

What if imagination isn't created, but instead creates? Does that mean imagination is god?

 

If I created you, it's probably because I'm curious and need some contrast to my boring head. Wait, but if I created you, you're in my head, so my head isn't boring? weird.

What if you think I'm boring? 😮 

If god is imagination, is got boring because we are? I mean, you, I'm not boring :rolleyes:🤣

Does this mean you are god? If so, apart from cake I want sushi!! :P  God? God, answer to me, please. My petitions are ready!! 🤪

If imagination comes from god, why would god be imagination? Shouldn't god have something beyond what we mere humans can experience? How can imagination create imagination? Are we experiencing the imagination of god, completely without any true control over our experiences, only the illusion of choice? Or does god experience our experiences as if they are us, and so technically we are making the choices and god is just providing the medium for our lives to be experienced, and the awareness to experience it? Then are we borrowing god's vessel or something? Or what if it's like the ship of Theseus, where we are using the parts that composed of god's vessel, but our "soul" fragment of god's awareness is drving the vehicle, and we just think it's us? Wait, did I just imply that god is literally imagination? hmmmmmm

 

What if god is magic, and imagination is magic, and our souls are magic, and our conscious experience is magic, and physics is magic, and electricity and magnetism and gravity is magic? Magic is what fabricated our conscious experience, clearly.

Maybe if I imagine myself flying, then I will be flying. 

 

Yes, no and no (Ok, no, I'm wrong, fine :P ). That vessel thing sounds so kabalistic 😥, I'm scared now of this magic 😳:P

 

But don't try to fly, unless you have a flight ticket.

I saw a movie where the poet said soemthing along the line of, "They can put you in jail but as long as you have your thoughts and imaginations you are free"

As a Christian I do believe in Heaven and Hell. But I believe, truly, that it is much harder to be sent to Hell; God's forgiveness and benevolence is limitless, so for him to judge your soul as deserving eternal torture would require a lot of seriously ill deeds. Further to this Jesus died for our sins; indeed, baptism and receiving the blessing of Jesus is necessary as a 'ticket to Heaven' if you like (I am yet to be baptised as I am still reading/studying the Bible), as this cleanses you both of original sin and any prior or future sins you have/will commit(ted). Those not baptised will be in purgatory, which is a place that is as good or as bad as your soul deserves, I believe, but still considered a form of Hell (perhaps you will be psychologically tortured there to a degree proportional to your sins in life).

 

Remember that no one other than God can truly judge a person, so even those sent to prison for, for example, mass murder may not necessarily be going to Hell even though any living person would say they'd deserve it.

 

This is a question of faith and as such I will give you an answer based on my faith. I am also, however, a mathematician and scientist, and if I were to answer as a mathematician or logician, I would have to say that the answer to such a question is impossible to answer with logic; naturally I would be an agnostic if I allowed logic to dictate everything in my life, which I do not.
