    I must admit, I almost sprayed my cola at my screen from laughing at that.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    RE: What are your perspectives regarding death and life?

    In terms of life, it really is what you make of it, how you perceive life (obviously because this topic is based upon that question) and how you make of what you have been given. I see life as being something that has been taken to a complex state where really it's almost as simple as we could have imagined, we just always as humans try to over think what is there and why things the way they are. Sometimes you gotta let the good times roll, that said, you can't be passive on your life.

    Now for death, I am actually petrified of. Not so much the dying part, but what is waiting for me afterwards. Because I am agnostic, I am not sure whether or not to believe in something once you die. I personally don't think there is a metaphysical being simply because of what horrible acts we as humans have done to each other. No matter who it is humans have worshiped, that being should have never allowed actions such as genocide or torture to be allowed, especially when it has had religious motives behind those actions. HOWEVER, with that said, I don't want to think that once you are dead, you are dead. You become nothing, absolutely nothing. That's what scares me the most out of anything; I would rather take the torture of Hell for eternity and to know I am me and that I still have some sort of life to live after this one than to think I will be literally 'nothing' once I perish.

    This pretty much sums up my own feelings, although I'm not sure about a metaphysical being. I'm not going to disregard the possibility. Who says this omnipotent deity would have to be good? GOD MIGHT BE A TROLL! Seriously though, I regard myself as an absurdist which, if you don't know what that means (most don't), you might as well consider me agnostic like you since the two share a lot in common.

    I absolutely hate the idea of death since I don't want it all to be for nothing. I don't want people talking about the man I "was" and that being that. Even if I leave a legacy behind, what good is that to me if I'm... nothing? (I'm trying not to sound selfish but failing. )

    If it's any consolation, everyone else ends up the same way too.

    Haha, well I guess that's one way of looking at it Baron. And to Mantis, I definitely don't think without a doubt in my mind that there is no being out there that is controlling entirely, mainly because I am selfish and want to think there is SOMETHING there but I just haven't found evidence that has made me believe it is so. Who knows, maybe there is a god or goddess and they are a troll and/or like George Carlin stated, "[God] just doesn't give a s***".

    But hey, hopefully I will see all of you there, wherever that place may be. Maybe it's a place that isn't like any human religion that has been practiced and maybe it is one of the ones or combinations of some or all. All I can say is that I am in no hurry to find out what lies after the end of the tunnel.

    Hopefully it'll be a blissful eternity where I can mindlessly destroy shit like N-Dubz records, click my fingers to get it back, and destroy it again in an even more spectacular manner.

    RE: What are your perspectives regarding death and life?

    Why are you alive?
    Aside from the typical, biological answers to this question, I have my own philosophical answer.
    I'm alive because I believe everything happens for a reason. Everything that happens or exists has a cause and consequences. Therefore, I am alive because my existence is needed in the grand scheme of things. I'm not sure what is necessary from me. Perhaps its some form of spiritual growth similar to that in Hinduism. Or perhaps, as I've been told, I'm destined for great things and important decisions and actions. Whatever powers that be, whether it is simply nature or something more God-like. I make my own reasons to live. My friends, my family and my dreams. Without them, I wouldn't have a reason to live, and then I'd be more inclined to question why I'm alive in the first place.

    Are there any reasons for you to exist? If so what are they?
    I believe we make our own reasons for existence. To exist was not a choice that I can remember consciously making, so I need to make my own.
    My reasons for existing are simple. I exist to be there for my friends and family, equally in times of need as in times of joy. I exist to get the most out of life for myself and for those around me. Some people believe I can make a difference. I believe anyone can make a difference. One person can always make a difference, in fact, in the history of the world, it's the only thing that ever has.

    How do you perceive everything around you?
    Reality is not what we perceive it to be. If it was that simple, scientific and philosophical developments would not continue on the subject. Everything has a purpose and happens for a reason, although that reason may not always be clear. There are forces at work at all times, in all places.

    What may become of you after death?
    I believe there are two dimensions. The physical realm in which we live now, and a spirtual realm. This spiritual realm isn't religious, it is merely connected to nature itself. No matter how much science advances, it can not clearly state what a soul is, or why life really happens and how everything works. Nature is so vast and complicated that no one will ever truly understand it. I believe that nature itself is a spiritual force, as natural as we consider the physical forces we already know.
    I will simply go to this spiritual realm to be at peace, to further my spiritual evolution and development, while every so often watching over the physical realm to remember my past. However, I wouldn't be remembering my roots, as the place we go after death is where we were before birth.

    What is going on?
    This question is vague, but I'll give it a shot.
    Life, reality, everything that we know of and can identify, including what we don't know and can't identify, is part of an unfathomable system. Everything works in its natural state, without thought, without consciousness thanks to spiritual forces that dictate everything. Even these forces are not sentient, they merely happen.
    For humans, the best way to live and accept this, in my opinion, is this;
    Life is just a ride. It has many twists and turns, ups and downs and is very brightly coloured. This ride is so amazing that we believe it to be real, but its just a ride. Some people who have been on the ride for a long time try to tell us that its just a ride, there's nothing to worry about and that everything works out. Unfortunately, those who believe the ride - kill those people. But it doesn't matter, because its just a ride.
    The objective is to make the most of this ride because you're only on it for a short time. Do what you want, say what you want, live life without regrets. How can you do that? Live by 3 simple words. The words I live by everyday of my life. Love, Laughter and Truth.
    Love those around you and care for them. Do not waste time on hatred and use your love to bring understanding.
    Laughter. Enjoy life and make sure to make it enjoyable for others. A day without laughter is truly a day wasted.
    Truth. Be true to those around you and more importantly, be true to yourself. That way no harm can come your way and everything will work out in the end. The truth will always be a powerful force.
    As a species, here's what we can do; Take all that money we make each year from war and weapons and use it to feed, clothe and shelter the poor, unfortunate people on this planet, which it would many times over with no one left out. That way we can unite as one species, as one planet and explore space, together, forever. By doing so, we will overcome the mistakes of the past and grow as a species, both technologically, physically and most importantly, spiritually.
