8. What Happens After We Die?
We’d all love to know the answer to this one, right? Religions all over the world have tried to give us an answer about what really happens after we die – with some saying we go to heaven or hell, others saying that we enter an ‘afterlife’. But, we can’t know for sure.
Scientists that have studied people who had near-death experiences report that they saw a ‘bright white light’ and that they were filled with a sense of peace and joy. Does that indicate that our consciousness can somehow transcend our mortal bodies after death?
The jury is still out. New advancements in medical science are allowing us to monitor our brain activity moe closely than ever before, so maybe we will get an answer, someday!
