Obviously no correct answer, but interesting to hear what people think and believe in any case. Thanks!

I want to be cremated. So what happens is, they put me on this claim or whatever that is, I roll into the oven, I burn to ashes, my ashes are spread some place nice (at least I like the idea of it) and that's pretty much it. I don't believe in the existence of a soul in a supernatural sense. I do use the word "soul" sometimes but only as a synonyme for what in psychology they would call psyche. Obviously, when I'm dead my brain waves stop. All the hormones stop to be spread, all the chemical and electrical process in my brain (and body) stop. This means that I basically lose myself. If I don't have a brain anymore, I don't have thoughts anymore. I don't have a character or a personality anymore. I don't find that a scary. In fact, I find it extremely comforting. I like the idea of belonging to mother nature, belonging to the big circle of life. I am born, I live, I die. Just like an animal or a tree does. This fact very much tunes me in to nature, it brings me closer to all the other living things on this planet. I feel a part of it - and that's a beautiful feeling. I think it is more beautiful than the idea of having some sort of afterlife. Religious people tend to take their own existence as way too important. I know I'm not important for the universe or even for planet earth and that's quite okay with me.0
