I like to imagine death as more of a mother-figure. Truly. His job is to guide people to the afterlife, right? Well what happens when you die? You go to a cold, dark place. You are scared and alone and confused and don't know what to do; and then you hear a soothing voice, a man carrying a lamp and a clock comes fourth and tells you it will be okay, and that he will help you no matter what. And he listens to your stories and laughs with you and cries with you, and asks if you want to take his hand as you walk. He has endless compassion and patience, but still resolves to his duty to guide.

Perhaps that is why there are ghosts too, as he listens to your story as you tell him how much work you have left to do and what you HAVE to do before you can truly find peace, and he understands and leaves you his lamp, telling you to call anytime you want to go.

I think that thought is rather nice

"Before I die I need to fap one last time to my girlfriend's naked body"

So if Death guides people into the afterlife the way you're saying he does, how would he guide EVERYONE. I mean there all a lot of dead people that die on the same day, he would have to be in a lot of places at the same time. It will probably take a long time, I like that thought though, it's nice and warming but then again there are...complications.
User avatar #607 to #604 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/12/2012) [-]
Indeed you are right, but I highly doubt the laws of physics actually apply to such a being. As the existence of death is always present, the being himself must be omnipresent. You see?
User avatar #610 to #607 - swedishmeatball (11/12/2012) [-]
Yeah I see Death is a mystery, who would know what applies to that world and what doesn't.
User avatar #611 to #610 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/12/2012) [-]
Haha, indeed. But we all must cross the final veil eventually; I just figure it's better to go with happy thoughts than with fearful ones
User avatar #616 to #611 - swedishmeatball (11/12/2012) [-]
Yes I agree, always better to go out happy than afraid. Take it easy man

I can confirm this. I suicided once this summer and it was exactly like this.

User avatar #312 to #57 - goobyman (11/12/2012) [-]
so there are multiple deaths?
Every person needs their own
or is he more like a god-is-everywhere figure?
User avatar #366 to #312 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/12/2012) [-]
I'm not sure. I don't really like the Japanese Shinigami; although it would make more sense, there being more then one reaper, I don't like the thought of one person getting a bad ending just because his Shinigami has a sadistic personality, or another receiving undeserving life because his Shinigami is a believer and hopes he recovers. I would rather everyone be judged by the same, unbias fate; weither it be malevolent or benevolent

Am I the only one around here who believes that after you die you are no longer a person, and you're body is just an object, devoid of any thoughts or mind?
User avatar #647 to #294 - rokkarokkaali ONLINE (11/17/2012) [-]
I sometimes wonder if death even exists to a human than to others. I feel like we would never notice when we died and that life is an ending eternity.
User avatar #648 to #647 - ericbeagles (11/17/2012) [-]
I know what you mean, I highly doubt there is anything after death
User avatar #367 to #294 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/12/2012) [-]
No. I have talked with many people who believed exactly that, and have gone so far as to insult my intelligence, my sexual preference, and my will-power for disagreeing with them. There is nothing wrong with having a nihilistic view, what's wrong is believing you are better for believing it than others. Just as well, there have been more people who died and came back that have described an afterlife (although in hazy detail) than there have who have said it's just nothing. Personally, I don't know what happens, but I'd rather believe our story continues
User avatar #389 to #367 - ericbeagles (11/12/2012) [-]
As would I, I'm just pessimistic :)
#286 to #57 - fuckingmagicconch (11/12/2012) [-]
so even when i die and i have ghostly duties to attend to, Death will wait for me forever?

User avatar #369 to #286 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/12/2012) [-]
I don't see why not. He has all the time in the world on his hands, and has met many other souls like you, who have to stay, NEED to stay because of earthly duties. I'm sure he can relate.
#568 to #369 - fuckingmagicconch (11/12/2012) [-]
you have game me a whole diffrent view on the grim reaper. he's not grim any more, he's like a nan or grandad, always soo patient with you so calm.

i used to think he was the one that finished you off. Say you were dieing. in pain, suffreing with no hope of survival you begin to see a light but in that light is a dark figure, that figure is the being that quickly finishes you off. thats what i used to think. now i feel he is our friend, just like you said he talks with you laughs with you and even cries with you.

you changed my view on death ***************** .
User avatar #570 to #568 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/12/2012) [-]
The fact that I made such an affect upon you, and not only you but EVERYONE here, is worth more to me than all the thumbs, fame, or laughs in the world; I promise you
#573 to #570 - fuckingmagicconch (11/12/2012) [-]
You're a very peacefull person.

You are the nicest person i ever met on Funnyjunk.
User avatar #578 to #573 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/12/2012) [-]
Thank you, I try to be as patient and understand as our friend the reaper, as frustration and pessimism have never helped to solve anything. Not at all, I mearly speak what I believe, but it helps to have such affectionate and thoughtful peers around me (YOU kind gentlemen)
#582 to #578 - fuckingmagicconch (11/12/2012) [-]
You could change peoples life i really belive you could.
the way you're so calm, im guessing you handle arguments better than a majority of people. You could change peoples live and i would pay to spend time with you while you just talk aboutthings you talked about just now. i would like to here your views on these subjects.

i think you should write a book or somehting because you have the mind for it!.
User avatar #594 to #582 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/12/2012) [-]
You could change lives too, you simply need to assert yourself.
I'm calm because I've been through a lot, and I've read a lot, and I've done much soul searching in my life. Haha, it pays to be calm, believe me; it's hard, but it pays off.
No. I refuse to get paid for helping and assisting others. Seeing people's lives come together and a universal understanding is more than enough of a reward. Besides, I don't like money or material wealth.

I have written a book; I'm a published author of short stories. Horror stories, to be exact; but I also do much work with philosophy and baser thought
#599 to #594 - fuckingmagicconch (11/12/2012) [-]
it's great to hear that you help people get their lives back together but you refuse to get paid! you are a really great person. if its ok could i possibly nkow the name of the horror story you have written? with your beautiful mind i bet the book is truely gripping!.
User avatar #603 to #599 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/12/2012) [-]
I have many, they are all on my facebook page (I would rather my writings get out there then actually be paid for them). Would you like a link?
#605 to #603 - fuckingmagicconch (11/12/2012) [-]
Yes sure that will be absolutely great!

When the first living thing existed, I was there waiting. When the last living thing dies, my job will be finished. I'll put the chairs on the tables, turn out the lights, and lock the universe behind me as I leave.

User avatar #93 to #57 - Blitzken (11/12/2012) [-]
i completely agree with you his purpose has been severely twisted lately he does not take the lives of others, he guides the fallen to the afterlife
User avatar #381 to #93 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/12/2012) [-]
Indeed. The way I like to imagine it is, rather then snatching people away and damning them, he simply acts as a safety net for those who fall of the plate of existence. He is not bias, he knows no anger
User avatar #60 to #57 - roflcopterkklol **User deleted account** (11/12/2012) [-]
Or when you die you have absolutely no idea anything has happened, it is just an infinite black void that passes by instantly for eternity.
User avatar #78 to #60 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/12/2012) [-]
That is a possibility, but it is awfully nihilistic, and quite frankly, I see no point in living a nihilistic life
User avatar #309 to #78 - roflcopterkklol **User deleted account** (11/12/2012) [-]
And there we have religion explained, those not intelligent enough to see that this life is all we need and all we will ever get.
stop burdening yourself with hopes and wishes of an afterlife, go and enjoy the life you have.
User avatar #358 to #309 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/12/2012) [-]
I notice it is a habit of atheistic people to assume that "religion = moronic". And what if it's NOT all there is? What if you're wrong, what then? I assure you, good sir, that I am not burdening myself, it does the opposite and releaves my soul to believe that my loved ones are at least guided respectfully to their proper place then sitting alone in a darkness. My beliefs in the afterlife have absolutely no effect upon how I live my life now, but if anything, I'd say it makes me a better person
User avatar #639 to #358 - roflcopterkklol **User deleted account** (11/14/2012) [-]
Well i do not view religious people as moronic, and i do not mean it as an insult when i say i know i am smarter than you. i just understand completely how someone can believe in a religion due to the positive aspect of an afterlife.
if i was a less intelligent man i do not believe i would be able to comprehend a so called meaningless existence either, and believe me when i say i would rather be that way because as the old saying goes, ignorance is bliss and bliss is beautiful.
But then i would also miss living this life the fullest i possibly could because in the back of my mind something would always be saying "life is eternal, you will live for ever why bother wasting time with this one"

Also on a side note, "what if i am wrong?"
Well then no harm done, if a god is going to punish me for giving me the intelligence to question such things then that god can go **** themselves with a cricket bat.
User avatar #640 to #639 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/14/2012) [-]
Not at all. It seems you are misunderstanding what I am saying. I do not take offence, believe me, but most people who see my comment seem to believe that I am denying myself the joy of life simply because I believe there will be a next. No, I do not want to be immortal for fear of death, or fear of some god, I want to because I love life, and I want to experience as many things in it as possible for as long as possible (which of course cannot be done on an average life-time). I live every day as I wish, I waste none of it, I just wish I had more TIME to do what I love, you see?

And if there is an after-life, even better; as I can continue to move on and do as I please to my best extent. I do not fear losing conciousness in a wooden box six feet under ground. I simply do not want the boredom

(For future reference, you probably shouldn't state you are more intelligent than anyone. As at that point it becomes more of a competition than a battle of logic and wits. Besides, a truly intelligent person does not feel the need to be intelligent; just like a truly strong person does not feel the need to show off)

it’s the weirdest feeling when someone passes it’s like this sudden cold feeling like you’ve just got out of the shower on a really cold day and then suddenly you don’t feel anything and although you know they’re gone you keep thinking that you see their chest rise and fall or that they’ll get up and go “ha tricked you!” and inside you hope they do but you also know deep down that they aren’t in pain anymore they’re their old selves again and wherever they are they’re happy and then you slowly realize that your just looking at an empty shell and then it hits you like a train and you start to breakdown all over again. So I hope that heaven exists and that it’s a nice place.
User avatar #645 to #132 - rokkarokkaali ONLINE (11/17/2012) [-]
My biggest fear is not of death but that there won't be the people I love in the afterlife unless there's a heaven and there are thousands of other possibilities other than heaven.
User avatar #382 to #132 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (11/12/2012) [-]
Indeed, I'm sure your loved ones are all at peace with themselves, if not the world. If that thought is what comforts you, then let no one take it from you
