One of my favorite quotes:

'Where do we go when we die?' said Billy.

'I don't know', the old man said, 'Where are we now?'

Think about it please...

To me it is more logical that there is just a nothingness, a void.....but here we are....and our little brains cannot begin to understand why..... really why....not just all the knowledge that we know, big bang, universe, all that.... but really why and where are we? why are we aware?

Thinking about it is fine. Making up stories to explain it is not. The answer to your question may never be known.

Yes, I don't think we will ever be able to understand it.

KEV will now jump in and dismiss all of this as nonsense, but he cannot explain it either.... it's more than chemicals and shutting off a car engine. ...and I don't believe in a personal God... and it's NOT about wishful thinking or faith.... but just think, really think about it.

As I said, go ahead and think about it. But right now, at our current stage of development, it is not "... more than chemicals and shutting off a car engine." We certainly want it to be more, but we have no evidence that it is.

Can you move Mount Everest by yourself? How much time will you devote to contemplating such an action? What you are trying to do is greater than moving Everest.

I don't think the suggestion is to "think about it" for the purposes of answering the question, but more likely to contemplate how much we don't know and put some perspective on what we think we know.

Correct, Morris.

It's not about moving Everest, as much as understanding how big Everest really is.
