a simple question that I cant answer.
Does our existance create consiousness and when we die it dies with us or is our body and brain able to accept consiousness and so it populates us while we live and then moves on when we die.

Is it an external energy or force that comes to us and then moves on when we die?

All consciousness is the brains interpretarion of signals. No brain means no signals, therefore no consciousness. I am not a brain expert, but that is my own vague idea.

I need to think about this for a while, good questions here. Maybe it's like windows, when you die your consciousness gets a message that says: Human Brain (not responding) :lol:

Your conscious is based on your brain/thoughts, and if you are dead, your body stops functioning, leaving you to lose your physical body's conscious.

I an a Christian - catholic. But I'm not a diehard devoted christian or anything. I go to a catholic school and I believe in God - who loves every person in the world and who gave us the gift of freewill. I also most definitely don't follow the Christian faith based on fear or the fear of hell - I'm not even sure if I believe in such a thing as 'hell'.

I am christian but I can't say I'm strictly religious because really no one is. I believe that there is nothing bad about lucid dreaming as long as you don't use them to do sinful thongs.
Did I have a dream or did the dream have me?

I'm sorry, but actually I prefer the sinful thongs to regular thongs. :)

To Be honest I'm an Atheist who believes in a higher power. The thought of existence coming from nothing is purely fictional that bends all physical laws. And even if there were a higher power, it leaves me with more question than if there weren't. I believe there is a higher power, not as a being with supernatural powers but just a creator who himself is trying to make sense of the world. So I don't think leaving our problems to a higher power is the best choice at hand.

And death, I believe is similar to a WILD. When you have an astral projection or an OBE your consciences wakes out of your body and this isn't anything magical as the Unified Field Theory in mechanics says that matter came into existence from a conscientiousness. Believe me its true! OBE's happen when our body and mind shuts off while our sub-conscience is still awake which is very similar to what happens when we die. So is it possible when we die our conscience wake's up and roams the world? Quiet bizarre, but its highly possible.

And a reason why there can't be a 'hell' or 'heaven' is cause if our conscience is sent to hell after death, it is illogical because hell is supposed to give us eternal pain but as your own experience when you have an astral projection your body can't feel pain. If you try to hold something you hand passes right through.
