Perhaps the biggest mystery of all is what happens when we die. Do we just cease to be and our consciousness dies with our bodies?
This has been the central question of all religions for millennia. I certainly do not have the answers. On a logical level we are only conscious because of our brains and synapses. As far as I know, no-one has explained why we are conscious beings.
And yet, there is so much we do not know. One thing is certain. This is the ultimate question.
