Speaking on the subject of death, all this talk has reminded me that I once has a dream during which I believe I went to the afterlife (or at least the space between this life and the next) and spoke with an angel. I suppose it is equally likely (or considerably more likely) that it was just a dream, but to me I feel like it was real or at least a perception of what that portion of the afterlife is really like. Mind you I don't have any real theological revelations from said dream. Basically it went:
-I die in the dream
-I am in a black void with nothing in it
-Voice(angle) speaks to me saying that I've been given an extra week
-I ask why
-Silence for a few seconds followed by voice saying it didn't know why
-Then I am back where I died in the dream
Doesn't really give much of value, but the dream happened and it was real to me. Hopefully I was just in the space between this life and the next (or in "processing") as a black void would be a very boring afterlife.
Side note: I also saw a ghost when I was really little, so I really have to wonder why I struggle so much with the concept of the afterlife at times/the soul. I guess it is a combination of me fearing that I am wrong while another part of me fearing that I am right, but that other people are right about what the afterlife is (aka something that I don't want) making me hope that I am wrong, but still wanting to be right about not existing.....and I am just ranting now.
