Do I turn into a ghost after death?
For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 9:5-6 KJB)

It is too bad that you utilize the bible.
If you cannot see existence for what it is,
or you choose not to, that is certainly your right.
Those who, two thousand years ago,
proclaimed that after death there is nothing
very amply spoke of things that they had no way of knowing.
Never mistake them for having been correct, or intelligent.
They were wishful and intellectual equals to those who made
the grandest of promises that they have yet to fulfill, and keep.
The answer to your question: No, you won't.

Well, that's the general idea behind most religious beliefs. Not sure how anyone knows it's true, but lots of people believe it. Some of those people are a lot more educated than you and me, and some are definitely not.
I don't think a book that was written back in the bronze age is a very good source for research, but whatever works for you.

Strange that? The question is, how do you know? What kind of creatures live under the ice on Europa? You know as much about life after death than you know about my own question. Until we find out, why let it worry you? We are very similar to passengers on a train but we don't know where we boarded or when we are getting off. We also don't know where the train is going after we do get off. Everything is a mystery so why not just sit back and enjoy the ride?

No, you return to being a Spirit. Ghosts do not realize they have shed the physical body.

No, you do not. You are still yourself, just without your physical body.
