What is the ultimate fate of reality?

Is there a point in the future where all of existence will simply vanish and dissolve into nothingness? Or is it just gonna keep going forever creating more forms to infinity?  What about my individual experience? Maybe reality has no end as a whole but do I have an end? Will my subjective experience continue endlessly? Or is there an end to me? What is the ultimate fate of all of existence including my personal fate? Where am I gonna end up in? Or is it just gonna keep going forever? ?

When the thoughts ends, You find Yourself. Whatever you say is just an illusion , none of them is true and will happen.

@LastThursday sounds like @VeganAwake ?

I take that as a compliment. One person you can dismiss, two people you have take more seriously...

I'm assuming "me" is the body-mind complex as a whole. Not the character that can change due to age and life experiences. I'm not asking what happens to my character because it's obviously changing all the time. But rather what happens to 'experience' itself if that makes sense.

I'm not talking about your character, I'm talking about the observer that is "you" thinking you're a body-mind complex. That thing will change and disolve.  That is really what you're calling "experience". Consiousness itself is absolute, but the observer is relative and flimsy. Consciousness carries on, but the observer dies.


Consiousness is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is.

It is already nothing. There isn't any need to dissolve or vanish anything; it is already completely that: whole, one, zero. Nothing is going on......

Right...

except your imagination, silly.

Ask yourself as God: when do you want to stop imagining stuff?

When you are in deep sleep is anything imagined?

Now you are talking an alien language that doesn't correspond to direct experience. 

In fact if any.. It's YOU who is imagining God imagining stuff.. not the other way around.

What's your definition of consciousness?   

How can there be consciousness without an observer?

Direct experience is an illusion. You are everything you're 'experiencing'. 

The thoughts and sensations that arise are a reflection of You. Polarization of Light. Of Being. Of God. You.

You think you are your own reflection in the mirror.

You keep repeating this sentence as if it were from your holy book. 

You obviously don't know if that's true because you didn't die yet. 

I'm trying to help 'you' notice that there already isn't a 'you' in which could die.... and it's not working very well not surprisingly LOL.

THIS is already death because the 'you' that starts forming around the age of three is an illusion.

Have you heard the phrase: to die before you die.....

That phrase isn't talking about body/mind organism death, it's pointing to the collapse of the illusory entity that claims itself as the body/mind organism.

And yes only no one can know this.

Aha! How can there be an observer without consciousness? How can there be an observer without the observed? Are you the observer ever able to separate yourself from the observed?

Consciousness can never be described as anything other than itself.  Because saying its one thing over another is finite, and held within Consciousness.

Consciousness IS! :)

And what IS Isness?  

Well that takes awakening.

Language cannot go any farther.

Of course there is me. You are just confused about what the  'me' is.  The ego mind is just identification with thoughts. But you are consciousness itself. Obviously you are conscious. Otherwise you can't have this conversation.

I'm not talking about ego death. That's peanuts compared to physical death.

It's actually good that you distinguish between the two. I've had many ego deaths before. The issue here is bigger than realizing there is no separate self inside the organism. I've realized that zillions of times to the point it's no big issue anymore. But the fate of the organism as a whole as long as all of it (all of reality). And back to your earliest comment was about death of organism.. And you didn't die as an organism to tell us (there won't be the slightest remembrance of existence) . To that point i said (you don't know.

So how do you know this either without experiencing physical death? I agree it sure looks that way to those of us who are alive and experiencing the death of someone else. But from the pov of the dying person, don't they have to let go of everything including thoughts whether the process is good or bad?  Heck, I just fell in the same trap myself, assuming I can know something outside my direct experience of the Now :D 


Relax, it's just my loosely held opinion.  :)

@snowyowl well it depends of course on how does one die. Suffocating to death doesn't sound like a pleasant experience. Although you can die without any melodrama (like dying while sleeping). 

But the moment of death..that one final moment is when the levels of fear reach infinity.

I once had a kind of dream, after doing psychedelic the day before, about death. the person, me, with all its characteristics, attributes, memories, detached itself, and with all serenity dissolved into nothingness forever, as if it had never existed, and emptiness remained. only that I really was the emptiness, absolutely void, I always was and the person never existed. I think death could be like this

@Someone here  you could be right anyway, I've heard of people having crazy experiences with fear & anxiety, like out of body experiences and depersonalisation - perhaps it's a kind of defence mechanism.  Materialists go on to say that near-death-experiences like OOBEs,  going down a tunnel, seeing the bright white light, extremely loving beings etc is a result of the brain chemistry going haywire when close to physical death. Depends if consciousness is limited to the brain, I can't prove that to you either way.


Relax, it's just my loosely held opinion.  :)

There is some sort of design here. You can't have heaven without the possibility of hell. Hell will thus be created in all possible manifestations, contextualized with an infinite design of infinite love.

Everything will happen. As anything is possible, given the design.

Unless someone has figured out Dark Energy, most scientists believe the reality is not only expanding, but also accelerated as well.  So this reality will likely end up in a big Rip, not big Crunch.   The Rip is really another Big Bang of another reality.   Note: Space is relative here.

Lets look at it bro.

Do you remember being conscious prior to birth?

Do you remember anything before the age of about two or three?

If you're honest the answer is a 100% no I do not, unless you have some kind of mental disorder.

In that sense it seems like a pretty safe assumption to assume that after that body/mind organism dies nothing goes on existing.(Awakening or not)

The biggest problem for the sense of self is death. It simply cannot comprehend or fathom the idea of itself not being there...it's the most important self on the planet don't you know.

This is of course why religion/spiritual materialism is so popular.... it feeds perfectly into the sense of self's delusions of eternal life.

If you reach a state of meditation of total silence, empty, you will see that this is what there was before your birth, and you will understand how, after your birth, that emptiness begins to fill with images, appearance. that emptiness before birth does not pass, it is the same all the time, and it will always remain the same. you say there is nothing after death? You are right, since that void is nothing, but if you become familiar with it, you will see that that void is you, and that all the images that fill it are nothing, appearance without reality.  only the void is 

The issue of spirituality, imo, is not just understanding that the ego is illusory, it is knowing the void and beginning to understand it, it is a non-conceptual understanding that I think can be much deeper. understand that there is no I is not the end, it is only the beginning

You were NEVER BORN lmao ?

You can't imagine how deep this goes man ?

You are the universe how are you going to be 'born'?

To be born there must be a duality between that which gets born (sorry for my english I don't know how to use born in past tense Lol), and to the place where you get born.

But since you are the universe/One (non duality) you can not be born. You can only divide yourself to make the appearance that you get born.

And you do that by imagining a human being and a an apparent 'physical reality'. Then yeah, the imaginary human being does get born. But of pure imagination of yourself. 

 


A thought can´t ever tell you how you feel.
