Do all living beings on this planet created by a god experience an afterlife or do they have to have an advanced brain like humans?
Do all living beings created by a god go to heaven or hell? If not, why is an advanced brain required? Why can't all living beings go to an afterworld? Shouldn't all living beings be equal in god's eyes? Why are only humans privileged enough to experience an afterlife? I mean, animals and insects were created by god too, right? Does he just forget about them?

Don't you "God" fools ever quit? Your constant wonderings & speculations on what is sheer fantasy are sadder than sad. Face it: There never was, isn't & never will be any "God."
Further, who says humans have such an "advanced" brain? As evermore is learned about other animals, we discover that they're far more intelligent & capable than was previously assumed. Even plants display some ability to communicate to each other.

ALL LIFE ANIMAL AND HUMAN GO INTO THE EARTH AND RETURN TO DUST. ONLY HUMANS WILL BE RESURRECTED IN TWO RESURRECTIONS TO ANSWER FOR WHAT THEY HAVE DONE. HEAVEN BELONGS TO YHVH GOD, THE EARTH WAS GIVEN TO MAN AND HELL IS THE GRAVE. ONLY MAN WAS CREATED IN THE CREATORS IMAGE.

i dont know the answer fully, but if spirits can be places in any body of flesh, it would be the spirit that lives on after this life. but there are different versions of the belief in reincarnation, and according to peter 3:18-20, the sometimes rebellious people didn't get a chance to reincarnate, they remained in spirit prison to the atonement of christ was finished.

Mankind of one sort or another is over 2.8 MILLION years old, modern man 250,000 years old, Christianity just 2,000 years old with Islam an even younger 1,400 years old!
If it was not for man god would not have been invented!
There is not a single tiny piece of evidence even a single human from the trillions there have been has ever survived death in any form!!!!

All gods are myths, only the natural world exists,

There are lots of imponderables, and you have mentioned one. The Bible deals with those questions in the book of Ecclesiastes. It simply says that there is no telling if the spirit of the animals goes down to the dust of Earth, or upwards (see 3:18-21). The writer of Ecclesiastes just did not know about the animals, though his concluding chapter shows he was sure about the spirit of man returning to God after death, for judgment (see 12:7) .
But here's a subtle biblical point. Way back when Noah disembarked from the Ark, God made a covenant with him and all his offspring. It said God would demand an accounting for human blood being shed - even by the animals! "I will demand an accounting from every animal and from each man, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of his fellow man." Genesis 9:5, with verse 6 answering your other query as to all living beings having equality in God's eyes:
"For in the image of God has God made man". Genesis shows that only man had that privilege and is unique - different to all animals in that respect. This has nothing to do with the size of any creature's brains!
But "The judge of all the earth will do what is right" Abraham knew, and we can only leave such matters as to the animals to their creator. But we DO have the God-given responsibility, as the culmination of God's earthly creation, to steward the planet and to take care of the animals - something we are spectacularly failing to do (in the main, though thank God for those who do care).

There is no evidence to support the idea that any living beings on this planet were created by a god and no evidence either for an afterlife of any description. Provide some evidence that your god, or any other, actually exists and we can take the matter on from there but until you do, everything is speculation.
