Does anyone else find it strange how life carries on after your death?

I guess technically nothing carries on from your point of view, but whenever I dwell too long on the subject of mortality, it feels strange to think you are "unplugged" from the flow of consciousness. Everything else just carries on without you while you remain in a state of permanent oblivion. I'm surprised more people don't go insane at the thought, but I guess we've built up enough coping strategies to deal with our sapience on the subject.

    I mean that's not necessarily true, even from a strict materialist/physicalist viewpoint. You could just as easily assume your consciousness blinked into existence with a set of randomly-assembled false memories including reading this IQfy post, then immediately disappeared again.

    You are a bunch of atoms and once you die your atoms will remain
    From the point of view of the universe nothing has changed
    Except if you look at the Kalam Cosmological argument it's clear that God exists
    Does that change anything? Well yes because God knows everything and so from God's perspective you both still exist and you no longer exist
    The universe is uncaring but God remembers

    Consciousness is eternal. Non-being is an impossibility.

        Either you have some rudimentary form of consciousness in your coma, like you do in sleep, or you just "jump" to whatever the next instance of consciousness is.

          Consciousness is nothing without memories

            That doesn't make any sense. I don't think you understand what is meant by the word consciousness. The experience of being a particular entity and experiencing the universe via that entity's point of view, as opposed to being any other particular entity. That's your consciousness, it has absolutely nothing to do with memories.

            "Experience" is remembered, you compare the past & present, it all works on memories

            You're still not understanding. You'd still exist if your memories were all wiped. You would still be an entity that is experiencing things. The question of who you are is superficial.

            Fine, there would be an entity that is experiencing things. That's the point. There can never not be conscious being.

    I have thought of this, to me things like this just don’t add up idk reality and consciousness are just too strange to be some random thing. Why did we develop a consciousness and if we hadn’t then nothing capable of observing the universe would have ever come into being? Everything that exists is just there because?

    You don't though. In pure material terms, your brain turns to dust and particles stop interacting the way they had before, arguably the particles that compose your brain are not interacting the way they were even a few seconds ago. The irony is atheists talk of superstitious concepts like "nonexistence" and "oblivion" with no scientific evidence.

    Imagine how many universes are we "unplugged" from? How many lives and existences? How many past, present and futures?
    Crazy shit man, crazy shit.
    I cant cope with the complexity of the universe, I just live with the terror.
    Theres no cope, only rope.
