Our physical bodies end up as fuel for lower life forms. If you're an organ donor, the needed parts are used to save lives. These are answers that I know.

This is what happens - you appear in a black void and the only thing you see is a giant sign that says "RESPAWN IN..." plus a countdown. When it gets to zero you reincarnate as a random human/animal/whatever. If you're lucky you'll be the child of someone wealthy. If not you might just end up as a banana.

I believe we end up in a coffin when we're dead, and if we have a soul/memory-based existential form of energy thriving within us, it'll either return to the force of nature, or manifest as a newborn, or just fade away like our rotting carcass.

It's very simple actually.

You spend 9 months in a womb and you have no recollection. You can be in a coma for 3 years and it feels like a short nap.
If your brain is not working, you cannot experience the time passing by. It's just black emptiness. You don't care that you are dead, because you physically can't. You're not angry, happy, scared..etc

Your body stays where it is. That is your physical appearance, and it will be discarded however you or your family chooses.

Your brain stops functioning when you die. Your personality, your feelings, your ability to touch, see, and feel... all begin to deteriorate rapidly. If there was such a thing as hell, you wouldn't even know you were there.

The human brain is one amazing fucking beast.

Well, your point was driven by logic and biology. So I'm just curious as to where you think our consciousness is located in our amazing fucking brain.

The entirety of the human brain is there to support its on life.

In your example of "where does the voice come from" I'm going to assume the voice you have when you're thinking or reading. When reading "in your head" there are actually a multitude of sensory systems involved. The part of your auditory cortex that usually responds to speech also processes written words as if they were spoken. In other words, your brain is actually "hearing" your own voice when you're thinking.

I was explaining death, not the consciousness of life.

I think my explanation was clear, you may want to elaborate on the parts you didn't understand.

As for consciousness itself, scientists have not yet fully understood how the brain works, and this is one of the major questions left without an answer. On a purely technical level, what we know is thoughts are electrochemical patterns in your brain.

One idea I've always thought was rather interesting is the Buddhist belief of rebirth. Buddhists also believe in anatman (or, 'not-self') i.e. the idea that there is no permanent self or that our 'selves' are mere delusions. This idea seems to directly contradict the idea of rebirth (if there is no such thing as a self, then what is it that will be reborn?); but if you do some research into rebirth itself, you'll find that these ideas do seem like they can co-exist with another.

I'm an Omnist and I believe that faith dictates outcome.
If you believe that something will happen after you die, that's what happens.
If you believed you would rot in the ground, you will.

For agnostics, I believe that the outcome of their soul is dictated after death, but they don't have most of their human memories to guide them at all. Often, these individuals are reincarnated. Just as frequently, they're snatched by some god or demon.

phsically, a grave, no shit.

mentally, it's like being passed out, with no memory or thoughts or senses for a short while. except it lastsforever.
