edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Afterlife:
  • Expand the lead section to a full 3 or 4 paragraphs
  • Pinpoint areas to work on
  • Separate fraudulent experiments and research on this subject from that which is considered legitimate, i.e., that which is accepted as valid by the scientific community. The two categories (exposed fraud and legitimate science) should be listed in different sections under different titles. Lumping fraudulent research together with valid research may give the impression that all legitimate scientists reject the existence of life after death or, even worse, consider the very question absurd. If there is a consensus among scientists that the question of life after death is absurd, then research demonstrating the validity of this assertion should be offered. However, it seems obvious to this writer that no such consensus exists or can exist. 184.100.227.172 (talk) 00:11, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 29 March 2016[edit]

Under the "other" category, would it be possible to add a section on the Mayan beliefs of the afterlife? The research that could be added to this article presently resides in the "Maya Death Rituals" article. G.L. Ashworth (talk) 18:36, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Scientific afterlife through resurrection?[edit]

From a scientific uniformitarian/non-essentialist viewpoint, a person's consciousness and their perception of its continuity are physical, non-location-bound phenomena and therefore should be perfectly (though not necessarily easily) reproducible. There's nothing to prevent a sufficiently advanced intelligent agent (future humans/AIs/aliens with nothing better to do) from resurrecting a random person of choice. Further, if the universe/multiverse is expansive enough, specific conscious states and associated memories are likely to re-appear at different instances of time and space through mere coincidence. 2A02:1810:4D34:DC00:18F9:98D9:AD10:42FA (talk) 03:48, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
