I have seen someone's post on here that had the same idea as I have. His belief was, when you die, the universe dies with you.
Now this is a controversial position because there are people who believe the universe is physical and there are some people who believe the universe is all in your mind, but my belief isn't about that per se. I understand perception stops once a person dies so there's really no way to tell, however let's pretend that there was a way to see the universe after death. Most people do believe that time is a matter of perception.
For instance, after someone goes under for surgery, when that person wakes up they have no idea how long it took. It could have taken 5 minutes. It could have taken 2 hours or it could have been days. So I take that into consideration when thinking about death. My belief is that when we die, IF we were able to open our eyes in death and see the world, not being brought back to life but in the midst of death, the universe would no longer exist for that person and that person only. Basically living beings have to live by the second since perception is a factor but not for the dead since time goes by (if perceivable) in a blink of an eye.
Shouldn't that mean the universe dies inside the dead, but it continues on for the living?
