This chapter discusses a further explanation of the topic found in the previous chapter and includes a more thorough discussion of the concept of the “termination thesis”. One of the most puzzling questions regarding death is whether it can be survived or not, or whether a person can continue to exist after he/she dies. Based on the discussions regarding the termination thesis, it is revealed that people can survive death and continue to exist long after their death. However, after death people will merely be corpses, and have no psychological experiences.

Keywords:   termination thesis, death, corpses, exist, psychological experiences
