Would You Rather Reboot/Restart after death or Shut Down forever? When you reach the end of your life, would you want the possibility of starting over anew or would you prefer to be nonexistent? Which do you think is likely to happen? Why do you feel this way?

For myself I want to restart. If we can restart we likely can't take any wisdom with us but I would still like to gamble on a better existence than what I have provided for myself in this life. Similar to how I would restart a game when I was younger to do better and be more pleased with the outcome.

Great question!
I watch a lot of isekai anime because of this (well, they travel to another worlds generally but it's a restart anyway) so yeah, I'd really like to restart my life with my memories and knowledge intact.
I guess it sounds to perfect to be true but hey...why don't give a shot?

Anyway, if it's eternal nothingness, I won't mind either. After all, I won't exist so I won't be able to think lol

If I'd still be a part of the current reality I'd choose nonexistence instead. However, if there was an alternative reality where it was flipped and suffering was the minority while happiness was the dominant force then I'd choose that.

Restart to a different body, to different country or even different planet, to different parents etc.

Some lives will be better and some worse, but I think it would be much better in this way that just this one shitty failed life and then over for eternity.

On bad days I want it to be over for good, all traces of me erased in this multiverse, nine worlds etc. On good days I like to imagine there is a brand new life, one that is completely different better happier waiting for me.

Re-roll for a better life and hope fate favors me next time around.

Shut down forever, or going to a world similar to the movie "Wristcutter: a love story" and join my best friend.

Reboot I wouldn’t be opposed to living again. My main reason for CTB is getting closer to advanced aging , unacceptable societal shifts that have occured in my lifetime , etc. for example in my country its legal to tell young children pedophilia is acceptable and they should go to an organization where those values are taught. Sick, I want no part in paying into a system that allows that.

Shut down forever. I simply just don't want to experience/live/do/participate in/explore etc etc bla bla not only 'life'/'existence'/'the world'/'planet earth' blahblah however tf it is etc but literally anything else in general at all of any type, of any way etc and no 'matter' 'what'/'how' etc it is and it's not because of a reason/reasons, there aren't any 'reasons' at all, I simply just dont and that's it. 'I' have a 'gOoD'/'gReAt'/'hApPy'/'pErFeCt' 'lIfE' and my 'parents'/'family' 'love'/'want' me a lot blabla and want for me to have a 'healthy'/'enjoyable'/'fun'/'exciting'/'satisfying'/'fulfilling' (or whatever the fck those """pOsItIvE""" 'ways'/'words'/'adjectives'/tYpEs Of 'lIfE' mean, couldnt care less lol) 'life' and blabla many other 'good'/'great'/'positive' 'things' and blabla whatever tf and I just literally DONT GIVE A DAMN SHIT lmfao, I simply just dont and never at all will and will never want to want to and i have absolutely NO "pRoBlEm" with that, why the f*ck would I? lmfao
I simply just don't give a shit about 'life' in general no matter how it is/how it works/what it's about/what there is etcetc nor absolutely anything else in general at all of any type whatever/however tf it is lol and have absolutely NO 'interest' for it (nor for absolutely anything else at all no matter what 'type' of 'thing'/'place' etcetc it is neither 'what'/'how' it is etc) no matter 'how' it 'is'/'how' it 'can be and a large etc. so OF COURSE I choose 'shutting down' for all eternity/forever, without any 'doubt'

I would sure hope it's just a shut down. My whole reasoning for wanting to ctb is that I feel my continued life is ultimately meaningless. being reborn wouldn't solve this problem, as any enjoyment or progress I make in my life simply comes across as forced and, ultimately, I know it is all just a distraction to blow time until the end

shut down forever.
I do ascribe to a belief system that includes the notion of reincarnation but it is my great hope that perhaps that may be incorrect, or at least optional.
no way do I want any more of any of this, regardless of circumstances.

Choosing between having to feel pain, which is inevitable if you exist , while having an opportunity to feel good sometimes , and feeling nothing, I choose felling nothing.

I am terrified by the concept of afterlife, or immortality. What a torture....

Noting compares to the blissful oblivion of non existence

I dream about it
Knowing I can get it at my own will makes life bearable

Death will come to me like an old friend and I will smile at her, greeting her like a welcomed guest

restart with my memories or oblivion, no point in restarting if i can't go on from who i was before death. want a new game+ or to quit the game entirely if it isn't possible. i do not wish to subject myself to more of this shit regardless of who i might become by restarting everything, might be happy, might get simpler, might a lot of things but the bottom line is, no thanks, i don't want to play this game any longer and that's been final for some time now.

Nothingness is smth more sure in terms of what it is (sounds like a paradox) than another life... So nothingness.

There is also an eternal recurrence like an option (Nietzshe)... Ahah :D

"With the eternal reccurrence, the only experience we have is life. We experience it the same way over and over again".

Not for me even if I love(d) my life (before) very much... I imagine that (almost) nobody on this forum wants it this way.

Otherwise I like very much the book of Cioran "The trouble with being born".

I'm honestly okay with both. It's not like I'll know, there's not much difference between shutting down to nothing and restarting without memories, either way you cease to exist as you are now. Restarting with memories is a different game, sounds good initially but if I'm taking my shit mental health back to childhood I'm not interested. I had my issues as I child but it wasn't this bad yet. Who knows what the logistics of memories vs brain development would be with a personalty disorder?

I prefer to be nonexistent and that is what i believe will happen anyway.
