The very phenomenon of conscious experience can't just end, however. Whether that takes the form of an afterlife or reincarnation or something else, I don't know.

            It's just self evident. If you've ever had your wisdom teeth removed or something and you get general anesthesia, you know that your experience is that you're just sitting in the dentist's chair one moment and then you just teleport to the waiting room the next. It's like a brief death and resurrection. Now try to conceptualize that but without the waking up on the other side, just an eternity of "non-time". You can't do it. It's like trying to think about dividing by zero, it just doesn't make sense.

            There is no problem. If you are unconscious for two hours, you don't "experience two hours of unconsciousness" because you aren't actually experiencing. In the same vein, it is nonsensical to say that if your consciousness ends permanently, you experience an eternity of nothingness.

            In my experience with anesthesia there are two types, the one where you're conscious but unable to form memories (if you've ever been given too little gas you'd know what I mean) and the other injection type you get when getting intensive surgery, which puts you OUT out but that I've still had dreams during. My conscious experience has never "ended" and then started back up, it can feel like that if you can't remember but that doesn't mean it's the case.

            You weren't "nothing" all of your body's constituants already existed, you were assembled by your mother in the womb and grew with what you consumed.... you as a human being organism.
            You as your conscious self on the other end is a product of circumstances, you feeling your evironment as you grew a brain, the hormones influencing your mood, the education you've received, the influence of others, the decisions you've made.... You were shaped as well.

            It's better to think of yourself as both the product and an extension of your environment. But it's not simple determinism, like a planet or other astral objects you have your own "gravity" and influence, your "mass" represents your complexity. Because you are a complex being you influence things more.

            As a product of circumstances, you are a one-time thing. Infinity suggests things similar to you might happen everywhere "infinitely similar" to you but they're not you, there is only one you and it is the you as of now. Once gone it will never rise again.

    If I smash your compteur into a fine powder, where does the software & data go?
    So... what happens when your organs fail, your cells die and decompose and your memories and thoughts fade away from your dead brain?

    It doesn't "return to nothing" none of the sand of the sandcastle is lost, none of the electrons that encrypted the software are loss and none of the matter that makes your dead body is loss.
    Everything gets recycled. Nothing is created or destroyed only transformed.

    You yourself are made of dead matter recycled, of what you ate what your mother ate when she was pregnant and giving you milk.
    But you are not the "reincarnated" anything, you are a unique composition. Even with infinity in mind, whatever resembles you in infinte reoccurence of design is just that; *alike* not *you*. You are unique.

    Once your brain ceases so does your conscious self, it is merely thoughts processing. The accumulation of your experiences and feels through your senses, the lingering memories stored within and their cognition. You are the product of your evironment. There is no "soul" the primitive understanding of the conscious experience.
    But acknowledging that doesn't change anything about how you *feel*. You are no mere puppet, you are your own agent as a concentration of biological and mental complexity you have your own "gravity of influence" and can affect the environment that affects you back more if not tenfold.

    Beside, you may crumble away but you should know it's not easy to be forgotten. All of your actions, your very existence, affected the world around you including the people close to you. You left imprints, memories behind. They will linger and cause butterfly effect, like a ripple vibrating the world and its future long after you no longer are of the present but of the past.
    And you can make those imprints on purpose, working on lasting works & projects, get to know people to remember you

        People were never wise, they worshipped all that they though were gods, the spirits of the sun, the moon, the stars, the fallen watchers and their children. Idols, statues, images, other people, animals, demons etc. Only a few men in the world who passed down knowledge of the Most High from Adam to Enoch to Noah to Shem and to Abraham ever understood that there was only 1 God who created everything and was above all. Abraham walked faithfully before God and lived a blameless life in fear and obedience to God so God made a covenant with him and adopted his descendants. God taught his descendants about the true ways to worship and gave them all the teachings and rules and laws that makes a man righteous and holy and leads to immortality. So through them the whole world could have access to this knowledge and have a chance to also worship God correctly and walk in his path of righteousness if they believed in the teachings given by God and put them into practice.

        It does not matter if there are billions in the world and all believe in false teachings, only the ones who live righteously will be saved, even if they are just 1000 out of 100 billion. This word is cursed and doomed to destruction, God has been patiently collecting all the salvageable men that have been sprouting in this dying world along the way before the final day of the world arrives, and when he creates the new perfect and incorruptible world, he will allow them to live in it because they believed in God and obeyed him.
