what happens when you die?

Interesting question, what happens when you die? Loba answer: no idea. Lots of speculation, theories, religious beliefs, fantasies. Whatever one's conception about what happens, death is there as a gaping hole in reality. Without warning, one's body could suddenly become a corpse. Death happens every minute on this planet of seven billion people. The point of contemplating death is not to be maudlin or morbid, it's to sober up a minute and ponder the nature of existence.

What exactly does it mean to be alive? Loba answer: all one can say is one is alive because one happened to have been born. The world was here before one was born and will continue after one dies. So what is going on between birth and death? How could one live life to the full? How could one live in a meaningful fashion, with the least amount of confusion?
