    From your perspective you'll probably feel like fainting/passing out. A lot of feel good chemicals are unleashed when the organism senses fatal damage, meaning that people die high.
    After that, it's anyone guess, but it seems like there's nothing. There's no perception of time, space or anything like that. Maybe by pure chance your energy is somehow recycled and makes its way into atoms, so at some point in time you might come back as an organic attack helicopter somewhere on Alpha Centauri.

    on a scientific level, my understanding is that energy does not cease to exist, it just transfers. because our bodies have a small amount of electric energy, brain synopsis and all that jazz.... that energy transfers into infinity since it is no longer harnessed or kept in one place.....

    Till we get to a theory of everything I think we just cease to exist. The light at the end of the tunnel is a very common near death experience, once you enter it, you pass into the nothing.

    Less likely thoughts I have are extra dimensions that can hold us, or there is some scientific basis to "being" or sprit that can float around for a while. Even less likely is extra dimensional beings or beings millions of years ahead of us could just archive us.

    We are probably only about 50-100 years from AI being strong enough to extend our lives significantly. Could be a lot of things, nano bots repairing genetic material, ability for molecular factories to pump out new cells indefinitely. Also, since reproducing there isn't an impetus to live as biological beings, could we evolve into writing genetic code that has error correction and self preservation as a goal.

    But maybe we all are one and the same, simultaneously, but with different experiences and memories.
    My son watches this awesome YouTube channel with all these animated science type videos and we recently watched one that was set to a story someone had written about that very same concept of every person really being just one person simultaneously living in past present and future.

    Bacterial spores: these are the closest thing to immortality I can think of. This may have implications for space colonization.

    Alive...after 250 million years (link to the scientific paper).

    I think the question is probably ill-posed, i.e., the question might be based on the illusion of an individual self that is separate from the universal consciousness. Yes, I have a sense of a self that has agency and that is unique and separate from others. But I suspect that sense of a unique self is an illusion in some profound sense. One could also ask what happens when all conscious life ends, or what happens when the universe dies, or what happened before time began. Ultimately, it's a mystery. But one thing that I think we can say with certainty: if I was kind to others, echos of that kindness will live on; if I was cruel, echos of that cruelty live on. Hopefully, when I die, the world will be a tiny bit better and not worse because of things that I did.
