I remember the first time i had one of those moments of epiphany, where you think, "oh ####, i'm going to die someday." and at that point, it's scary. But then you start to think about it and it's like, man, EVERYONE dies. EVERYTHING dies. Trees, animals, planets, the solar system, possibly even the universe.
And one time, I remember I passed out because I was overcome by a cloud of nitrogen at work. That nitrogen hit me and it was instant lights out. Next thing I know I'm waking up on the floor, and I had probably been out for about a half minute when someone came and shook me and told me to stop sleeping on the job. And like I said, it just hit me all at once. it wasn't like i started gasping for air or anything, i just passed out. From being awake, to being close to death to being awake again. And nothing hurt, no suffering, all i got was a small gash on my thumb, but nothing serious or lasting.
Then there are the times when i sleep and have no dreams whatsoever. and that's weird because i dream ALL the time. When I wake from those dreamless nights, it's like, wow, where did i go for these past 6 hours? So, I don't know, personally, it's not a big issue. I worry more about what would happen to my family without me than what happens to me when i die. and of course, i worry about my close family and that they don't die before their time, in other words, that they reach old age.
Somebody should put up Stop signs in the ocean. That way the sharks would see them, stop and then die.

I know how unsettling that can be. I blacked out when I was shoveling snow back in January. I went from going about a mundane task to picking myself up off the ground and literally crawling into the house. It was that sudden. And when I thought back to it, I remembered there was nothing. I wasn't cold, there wasn't a dream or an interior monologue, it was all just blackness and quiet.

.... why are you thinking about this?
Well, we have a lot of threads about religion on this board and I have rarely come across any that ask what people actually think about death. That's what religion is about after all: what we think happens after we die.

There was a really depressing segment of This American Life recently that dealt with this exact same subject.
