      Another interesting question Leigh, aka another complicated one!

      Emotionally, spiritually – no one knows! Science has not yet provided any insight into what may happen, and religon offers suggestions – but again nothing can be proven, and probably never can be!

      Many people have said they have experience things when they have been clinically brain dead, such as during surgery or heart attacks. Is it real or your mind playing tricks on you? An unsolved question still Im afraid, sorry Leigh!

      This is another tricky, very complex question! As Karen explains, no one really knows. Physically, people’s bodies can get worn out and eventually it stops working – all your cells at this point have reached equilibrium. The physical bits of you will decompose as all materials do over time. But some people think there is more to it. Your physical body may decompose, but spiritually there might be something afterwards. Some people believe that they will go to heaven, others believe in reincarnations… there are many theories but none have been tested as it is very hard to do so. Very philosophical and this chat could go on for days! Great questions from you Leigha!
