Those who say there's nothing after death, aren't you a little bit puzzled by what happens to your perception of nothing? You suddenly cease to exist, how's that going to be? It's paradoxical. How can you experience non-existence? Or how can you not experience existence?
I think that paradox is the basis for any belief in a life after death.
How is it paradoxical? I don't expect to be experiencing anything. Is it paradoxical that you experienced nothing before your birth?
