I really need honest answers...
I can't accept this is the end, even as a non believer.

They cease to exist other and will ONLY remain as memories in your mind and heart. But no matter what, we'll All eventually become forgotten one way or another, I had more or less learned to accept this and realized just how bleak it all really is. If one of us can cease to exist and that cannot be fixed in anyway, at least as of now, then all of us can eventually cease to exist.
My point is that we were never built and made to last to begin with. We don't come with warranty or any possibilities of upgrades that would allow us to ever completely avoid all possibilities of dying.
And there is no absolute way to download and "back up" all of our experiences, knowledge, memories, secrets, etc. and then transfer it someone, something or somewhere else BEFORE we cease to exist. Our entire collection of electronic data might still be maintained and preserved by someone close to us, for as long as they can and are willing to maintain it that is, but everything else like your experiences, your personality, etc. that all goes when you go. You can't keep anything and take anything with you when you leave this world, not money, not any physical belongings.
Although I would only hope there will eventually be such new developments and workarounds when technology advancements reach the "Singularity".
But that's all just speculation, and I can only hope that we don't destroy each other before then otherwise all hope is really and completely lost forever, for our world, our species and virtually everything we had ever built, designed, made, or created.1

"In physics, the law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of an isolated system remains constant—it is said to be conserved over time. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed; rather, it transforms from one form to another."
Even as a non believer, you could always think of humans as a former of energy, so when we die, our energy transforms into something else, therefore we live on in a new form.1
