    What is DEATH to you?

    King James Version Ec 3:20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
    Reference Bible Ps 146:4 His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; In that day his thoughts do perish. 

    Reference Bible Ec 9:10 All that your hand finds to do, do with your very power, for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in Sheʹol, (grave ) the place to which you are going. 

    But is that all to us.

    Reference Bible Ec 7:1 A name is better than good oil, and the day of death than the day of one’s being born. 

    Why is this. Because you have either made yourself a good name. Or a bad one
    At death .

    Reference Bible Joh 5:28 Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 
    Because Reference Bible Joh 5:29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment. 

    A second chance of judgement to live by a new bible or scrolls.
    We as humans do not have the cure that ends life. But there is a cure that is in good hands.

    New World Translation Re 1:18 and the living one, and I became dead, but look! I am living forever and ever, and I have the keys of death and of the Grave.

    The cure of death exist ! But no human have the keys.
    We are to be joyful that he will use that Key in our favor if we should sleep in death!

    I think death is a transformation. We live this life, with every experience being taken in by the senses and etched into the matter of our brains. Cataloged and recorded. Then, once the body fails and is no longer able to retain the physical processes that sustain life, we too disperse into the ether, information and all. We rejoin the physical world. With those etched memories cataloging our individuality.

    I think the natural world shows signs of deliberate intent. And I don't think all that we are just ends at death. I think our life experiences builds toward something. I think there's more intention behind consciousness than to just be the willful motivation behind a mechanical body in its efforts to sustain life. Basically, I think this life and the recording of each individual's experiences is nature's way of giving us the knowledge base necessary to wield a truly free will.

    If we truly experience free will then we are the only bundles of matter in all the universe capable of behavior that is in no way governed. All the matter and energy in the universe conforms to some laws. Our willful actions are the only exception. And because we can behave outside of any sort of governing system, we don't fit in the world naturally. We destroy and deface the natural world. We're more parasites in our treating of the environment around us than mammalian. This is something nature would have to account for. The wisdom required to wield, or self-govern, a free will would require a knowledge base. A knowledge base like the collected experiences of humanity. If we experience the damage that can be done then we can understand.

    "Death is there to keep us honest, and constantly remind us we are free."

    Excuse the Dan Fogelberg quote there...was the first thing I thought of when I read that title.

    To me, death is...well...the end of one phase and the entering of the next phase. Be it just nonexistent, or going on into the afterlife where who knows what happens. But there are plenty of odd an interesting occurrences that tend to hint at the possibility that there is something else out there. At least, that's how it seems to me.

    Also, because I haven't quoted enough things, I think "to die would be an awfully big adventure".
