You will never be aware of the fact that you have died

If you get complete amnesia, did you die? If you are braindead, are you alive?

Are you your body or a collection of memories that inform a consciousness? Are you more than both or something else entirely? A soul perhaps that like dark matter is yet to be detected but has been calculated by the collective experiences the majority of humans throughout our history? Like a radio signal propagating reality your body just happened to be tuned to.

I don't know, maybe I was something before I became a human and maybe I have a journey ahead of me after this life. Who knows.... reality is all very bizarre. I hope I never forget myself but maybe it would be a relief.
