What happens after we die? For many it's not a topic we often want to talk about and looking deeper into the nuts and bolts, passing on is a difficult task yet it is a fact of life an inescapable inevitability and it has been a go-to subject for researchers, philosophers, and even the atheists. From all around the world for centuries death is arguably the greatest most mysterious and most unsettling of great unknowns. Many of us fear death because we are born knowing only life, but of course, we know that's gonna happens.
What happens when you rest in peace, at last, to be remembered? Despite our scientifically based opinions about death these days, most of us seem to believe in life after death.
In 2014, British citizens were polled by the Telegraph, and just under 60 percent of respondents stated that they believed in the continuity of part of us. In the United States, which is still a very Christian country, some research in 2015 asked people what happens after they die?. The study found that 72 percent of Americans believe we go to heaven, which has been described as a place "where people who have lived good lives are rewarded eternally." Fiftyfour percent of US adults responded that they believe in fire, which has been described as a place "where people who have lived bad lives are eternally punished without guilt". With that in mind, welcome to this episode of my article on read.cash.

Most people seem to believe that after a death we may lie in paradise with some clouds scattered or vice versa, if we do not adhere to the ethics prescribed by our chosen religion or the name of that religion, we may be punished by eternal hell and the spectacle of groveling to a redbearded man who seldom casts his pitchforks. But now let's start with some empirical facts and what will happen to the body when we die. Doctors know you're dead because your heart has stopped beating and there's no longer any electrical activity in your brain. Brain dying means virtually death, although machines can keep you alive a little longer. You can also develop what's called cardiac apoptosis, which means your heart has stopped beating and blood flow through your body has stopped.
The strange thing, and the surprising thing, is that the people who suffered from cardiac death but were brought back to life said that they were aware of what was happening around them. Others spoke of walking toward a light in a kind of neardeath experience. You can be brought back from what we call clinical death, but you have a grace period of about four to six minutes. But let's say you reach the light and cross it, that's what we'll call
biological death. Endgame, last whistle, dead. And here's where it gets kind of awkward, but why would you care, you're dead. As soon as you get in the evening, you're not with us, your muscles relax, and that means your juicers too, that is, the three bags of Weber and the big pans you had for lunch will come out of you, and the gases inside you will probably leak out and cause a stink. The same happens to urine in your bladder, so dying is a bit messy. And guys, you might as well ejaculate. Likewise, for women, you may be born after your death if you are pregnant, and this is called “the birth of the grave.” It doesn't happen often though. Instead of pressure, gases in the abdomen push the newborn into the world.
As the body is getting rid of what was stuck inside, the air can make sounds from your mouth. Nurses and people who work near dead bodies have commonly documented hearing the sigh of a living person and the groaning of dead bodies. You can twitch as well, but that doesn't mean there's life in you, it's just muscle contractions. You can get an erection quickly if you die lying on your stomach with blood flowing downward. All of your blood will collect around a specific area of your body. It's called "throw blue" and it's why parts of you have that deep purple you saw on TV. Some nice things can happen soon after you die. With no blood flowing through your body, it will begin to lose heat, which is known as "death chill" or simply "death chills." Your temperature will continue to drop until it is in line with your surroundings. It will harden within two to six hours, which is what we call "dead rheumatism." This happens because calcium gets into the muscle cells. The cells break down without blood flow and this leads to bacterial growth, which is why your degeneration begins. It may seem that your hair or nails have grown, but that is not right. What happens is your skin recedes, giving the impression of growth. The skin will relax, too, and pimples will appear on the surface of the body. The second stage is putrefaction when germs and microorganisms start feeding on you. You will soon start to smell as bad as anything you could have imagined when you were alive. One person described the smell as: "Rotten eggs, feces, and a bathroom left for a month multiplied by a thousand. It's hideous." Soon everything that's soft will melt, with things like bones, cartilage, and hair still strong. By the time you are buried, you will be well on your way to disintegration. But in the case of embalming and burial, decomposition can be a slow process. If left on the ground, it will be a melting mess within a month, feeding on insects, grubs, plants, and animals. Underground, some scientists say it may take eight to twelve years before you return to just a skeleton.
After about fifty years, even your bones will be part of the dirt. We must add that the rate of decay depends on all kinds of factors and is too much to mention here. But we think you got the picture. While some people have stated that their near-death experiences were a sight to behold, this is not always true. One Reddit blogger stated that his experience was like this: "It was just a black void, no thinking, no consciousness, nothing." Is there anything else? Irish philosopher George Berkeley was so reckless about knowing what happens after death, or those moments during clinical death, that he hanged himself to the point of death.
