What does this collective knowledge of the religion and science world tell us about death?

It tells all of us something different.

When someone we love dies, as has happened to you, it's very usual for people to question their beliefs and convictions about life and death.

People who have had strong faith in a god or a religion before often lose it (sometimes temporarily, sometimes permanently) in these circumstances; while, on the other hand, people who were secular might turn to a religion or god for comfort.(Again, it could be just for a while, or it could be permanently.)

All the bereaved can do is to accept this as a natural part of the grief process, and not to blame themselves or think there's something very wicked about themselves for having strange thoughts. It's normal, and natural and in time your questions will all settle themselves one way or the other.

Hang in there, Ashwin. We're all still here whenever you want us. It's much better to talk than to let things fester inside of oneself with no outlet.

Why?
ONE dies to make room/space for MORE. Or ONE simply joins a sect where ONES transition.



Sometimes I wish there existed some kind of god.

I agree. This is how humankind develops. It needs fresh minds able to accommodate new concepts. People are not computers, you can't delete your operating system and install a newer version. It gets installed once and for all as you grow up and can only be tweaked later to some extent. Sooner or later it gets outdated. Besides, it has bugs. Again, they can't be fixed as easily as in software.

At essence, it is very simple, because evolution would fail without death.
Also, the alternative is considered a curse from a rational perspective.

Question authority. How do you know, that you know, what you know?

Plus bodies inevitably get worn-off, too, despite their extensive self-repairing capabilities.

According to Pierre Teilhard de Chardin our body joins the biosphere and our mind joins the noosphere.
That's the way circulation of life happens on this globe. Possibly on the others, too.




In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.
