... bare with me. not based on, but consider the saying, sleep is the cousin of death. what happens when you sleep? you dream like a motherfucker. nobody is yet to figure out the science behind dreams, but whatever it might be, it has to be related to your sub conscious. now, whatever you may have heard/seen throughout the day, you sometimes see vague similarities of such things in your dreams as you sleep. now, what happens when you die? i heard some people start singing out madonna songs just before their death. is it because they are cursed and going to hell? fuck no. it's because they've been listening to madonna songs, and her lyrics have unfortunately been imprinted in their sub conscious. so in death, you will dream whatever you've seen/heard during your life. if you've heard about heaven and hell, you'll be experiencing it, especially if it's always been in the back of your mind (like the religious folk). so for you athiests believing in nothingness, that's what you'll get after your mind is done. who the fuck knows how long a second in death time is. in a dream, you might think you're in there for a fuck long, but it's only been one or two minutes in reality. that's just a temporary dream, sleep is not permanent. death is. so imagine how long you're sub conscious is going to dream for. what may seem like an "eternity" might only be the time it takes for your mind to rot. but having said that, if all this shit is true - i'll be in heaven with pornstars. seen too much porn during my lifetime.
