I Hate Metaphysical Dilemmas

Chances are that there is an afterlife... but that could only mean that there is a possibility that there is no afterlife.

That can only mean that this life is all we get. What happens then when we die? Do we simply cease to exist? And what happens when simply cease to exist? The irony to that question would be the simple answer which is 'nothing happens at all'

And when nothing happens at all, what then happens?

For days now I've been attempting to imagine how does it feel to not exist. A foolish futile attempt at feeling something that cannot be felt.

It is far from 'Oh I feel like nothing now...' cause feeling like nothing is still feeling something... which is nothing. But what would pure nothingness feel or not feel like.

I can close my eyes and imagine a pure colossal void, but I would still be feeling something. I will feel like I am closing my eyes imagining a pure colossal void.... sigh...

The absence of presence, the presence of absence... it makes no sense at all.

Perhaps then, dying would not be such a bad thing. Its just pure nothingness.

What then is the essence of this nothingness.

ps: For the first time (and probably the only time), I am posting a photo of myself on this blog. Just in case if I suddenly cease to exist.
