What’s in store for us beyond this life? Is it another grander destination, or will it be a state of nonexistence just like the one before we were born? These questions have haunted human beings since the dawn of our species, leading to many attempts at answering them, which includes philosophy, religion, myths, etc. But as we all now know, if there ever is any chance of an objective and conclusive answer to the problem, it would come from modern day science. Your brain does not shut down as quickly as the rest of your body when you die it’s still working. New studies have found that your brain can enter a “hyper state of perceptual neural activity” at the time of death. Essentially your brain is still projecting imagery.
