No one knows what actually awaits us after death, that's why death is terrifying. People who claim to know (religious) are just basing it on faith, which is dubious & confusing. Scientists are more realistic, they own the fact that no one knows, and that anyone who claims they do is more than arrogant & diluted - but that gives us little comfort. The best course of action is to live this life to the fullest, because even if there is an afterlife, it won't be anything like this one, it won't have the physical or material pleasures, it might have enlightenment but not the simple fun. Do whatever it is that fulfills you, experience what you can before it's over, and don't forget to be kind & generous along the way - giving enriches the soul. Wherever yours ends up, make sure you contributed something to humanity before you go, elevate our kind, inspire others, leave your footprint, make a positive change. That way, you will never be forgotten.
