even if there is a life force inside of us that can transcend to a parallel universe when your body ceases to support it, logically you would still not experience life after death. all of your memories, your genetic code for your personality, and everything you have ever identified with would be gone. you simply would not be you anymore. it is like taking a battery out of a phone. that battery is not the phone, it is nothing like the phone. and if you could fit it in another device, it would still never be that phone. that phone would be dead until another battery was put in. and unfortunately there is not extra battery for our bodies. but this is beautiful because it makes our fleeting existence that much more fragile and precious.

This is nonsensical philosophical babbling. Changing cells so the sky appears red? Mmhmm, except that cones in your eyes respond to different wavelengths of light, corresponding to the actual colour you see. As long as your cones and rods are functioning correctly you see the same colour every time. If they are not functioning correctly it doesn't mean you see red where blue should be, just that you are colourblind and see a similar shade for multiple colours.

Recipe for Death Denial: Squeeze science for the juice and discard the rest. Add a heap of wishful thinking. Add a chilled lump of fear of the unknown. Mix until unrecognizable. Remove marbles from one brain and marinate in the above mixture until senseless babble rises to the top.
