During an interview, this is what the famous scientist Stephen Hawking had to say about death.
I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years. I'm not afraid of death, but I'm in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first. I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.
Although what he claims makes perfect sense when you think about it logically, I do not think that I have the courage yet to be fully convinced that it could really be true. Still, my gut feeling makes me feel kind of sorry for this poor guy actually believing in such a bleak existence. But it could very well be true.
