Had a conversation at work about this and my take was that I am afraid of dying, only because I have no idea what is awaiting me on the other side and frankly I do not want to know for a long time.

Existential thought, I would imagine. I really don't know if I'm afraid of dying, but I've stared down the business end of a 12 guage before and it wasn't a happy moment..

I don't fear death, death fears me.

Yes I do but I'm not very religious at all and haven't been to church since I was a child, but the fact I believe there is a God does not ease my mind about what lies beyond my life here very much.

This is a good thread because it's the number one fear of human beings. It's an
unknown.

I don't feel afraid of dying but it's easy to say that when I'm not facing death. I don't
want to leave here because I enjoy it too much. But mostly, I would hate to put
people through the grief of having to deal with the loss of a loved one. My wife
had to go through that with her first husband.

I think there is an afterlife but I cannot be sure until I have an out of body experience
or a near death experience. Even then, it's not proof. There is a drug (ketamine) that
mimics the near death experience to a T when injected IV. And there are other
ways to mimic it with EM. So...

If I could have an OBE and find out something (during the OBE) I couldn't have possibly
known about through normal means, that might change my Think to a Believe.

Are we more than a physical body? I think so. Precognition proves it. And I have had
a few precognitive events in my life.

I think once you have actually faced death & thought you were going to die & didn't, you are no longer afraid.

OBE is Out (of) Body Experience...roughly, either deep meditation with transitive qualities, or death itself and then the sudden return to life.  Of course, cognisance remains during the ordeal.

Hopefully I'll stick around for another 40 or 50 years and will start worrying about it more then.
