So, what do you think happens when we pass away, and what do you WANT to happen when we pass away.

Personally I think there’s just nothingness once we die. Ideally, however, I think if there is something after death it’s tailored uniquely to each individual. If you have spotify I recommend checking out Decoding Death Podcast. Really fascinating stuff about NDE’s!

What I believe:
brain death the end
or the energy alter into another form.

What I want:
Eternal peace and oblivion
or roam freely as a spirit, go where i want.

One way or another, I just want to rest.

Intellectually, I know it's probably just nothingness but deep down, I hope it's like dreaming. Kind of weird and hazy and magical and your memory's all messed up so it never gets boring.

I believe in God and Heaven. So I hope I go to Heaven and experience true happiness by finally reuniting with God. And I hope I have friends and a puppy in Heaven, that I have confidence and can spend all day drawing and listening to music, etc. All while keeping up with the stuff happening on Earth that's related to my hobbies and my family. Like watching new episodes of my favorite show and my sister's wedding and such. All that good stuff.

But realistically I know death is just like before we were born. It's just nothingness, and we have no awareness or perception of it. Doesn't sound so fun tbh, but it's better than the suffering of life.

What I believe: Eventual reincarnation, but no so fast for us who "break" the body... Some form of punishment for "playing God" and ending own life. It's all about infinite consciousness having a human experience and learning and evolving through emotions - love and suffering. We all have lessons in these lifetimes, and by committing suicide we by all means fail and have to go through the same, even worse, shit again.

What I want and hope for: nothingness.

Is it bad if I either want people to cry and be really broken up about it or for everyone to actually be super relieved and happy about it? No in-between. Either they have to hate everything about it or just be glad it's finally over...

That would be fucking garbage.

I want my family to just let go and let them know its not there fault, i didn't belong her so its my choice to take myself out but i can't try to ctb cause i think about my family.

I want them to be sad for a few days and then forget about it and go on with their lives.

I also think it's just nothingness, which is a good thing tho.
I think some kind of afterlife would be nice too, but only if it's peaceful and beautiful. But i am 100% satisfied with nothingness.

Some form of punishment for "playing God" and ending own life.
who would do the 'punishing'?
and why is it 'playing god' to make a choice to end one's own life because of suffering?
This theory about 'learning' and having to experience suffering sounds like a form of torture.
and why would this infinite consciousness need to learn anything, since it's infinite?

It sounds to me like you've subconsciously spiritualized and sublimated the parent-child relationship, where a parent (god) punishes a child for not 'learning properly' and doing as they're told.

For me personally, I'd like people's experiences after death to match whatever they want it to be. I'd be fine with nothingness, some form of heaven, or limited reincarnation. Just really anything that doesn't involve eternal suffering.

When the human brain dies, it takes your memories and thoughts with it. Fade to black just like the end of a movie. However, as your brain is dying, it released a bunch of chemicals as part of its defense. These chemicals cause pleasant hallucinations which are based on your belief system and your life experiences. This is what NDE is all about. It's not real. When you're dead you're dead...it's that simple.

I want to go to a place where I have no more pain, where I belong, and where I receive the love I never received on this planet. I hope my faith will lead me there.

This may sound strange but I just want to start again. However many goes it takes to get it right. That's because I don't really want to die I want to go back in time but I'd rather die than wish for that for the rest of my life. If there's nothing I'll never know so it won't matter.

What I really want is to wake up in some kind of post-scarcity space utopia and have this all be a really elaborate dream I had for some reason.
I want to wake up in the past and this has all been a nightmare. A warning of what's to come if I don't act. If I can't have that I'd rather not wake up at all

To wake up from a simulation and realize that it was all an experiment to see who was smart enough to bow out!...

Just kidding, probably nothingness and sleep.

It's so difficult for the human brain to rationalize nonexistence, which is why I think we created fairytales to cope.
Logically nothing comes afterwards, but it is so mind boggling for me to comprehend "drink this and you disappear" like... what?? It's so hard to wrap your head around.

Personally (probably due to trauma) I am honestly going to pretend I'm going to Neverland, where I stay a kid forever and all my friends visit me and we just roam around the island having fun. That sounds beautiful to me.

NDE's are not experiences of death.
No one knows what happens to consciousness after the death of the body.
No one even knows what consciousness is.

There was a void before we were born, I would hope that I return back to that peaceful void.

Nothing is not a 'thing', by definition. Therefore it cannot come after death, since only something can follow another thing.
Logically, consciousness would have to continue in some form.
If consciousness is something material, then you would be correct, because atoms are indestructible( and im not sure). But since it is immaterial thing, ur logic does not apply. Think of consciousness as an OS and the body as hardware. You format your hard driver and the OS and all the files( which would be the memory) simply disappear forever.
It all depends on what you mean by 'material' and 'immaterial'.
Things get complicated and uncertain when you get down to the fundamental physics.
If your hardware analogy is accurate then you'd be correct.
But perhaps consciousness is more like electromagnetic radio waves, and the body is a radio which converts the waves to mechanical vibrations so they can be heard. When the radio breaks, the radio waves still go on existing.

To be reborn, life shouldnt be like this, and people who are born a certain way deserve a shot at happiness. If not I at least hope to go to a place where people who feel and live like I do exist. Your consciousness goes out, your eyes dim and then you awaken with strangers all around you, excited to see you, welcoming you into the group and you don't feel any pain or fear, just bliss.

This is honestly my biggest concern. There isn’t anything in our known universe that turns into nothing, since it isn’t possible... Every aspect of the universe shifts into a different thing when it expires. Why would consciousness work so uniquely different. I would love to believe there is nothing after death, but nothing doesn’t exist.
