heaven and earth

do people actually know whats going to happen after death approaches them?

people will die no matter what happens. perhaps death feels like how it was before birth when half of our genetic DNA was swimming around in the scrotum. who's to say we can only speculate what will happen. people will believe in heaven and hell we can only assume so much. who's to say what we think are not made up falsies. everything that we have discovered and made was emphasized by humans. we made communication possible, we made technology, and buildings etc. science explains most of life but it does not explain everything. it does not explain phenomena that happens around the world. we might end up in a dark abyss after we die all alone looking at nothing but the shade black.

When we first set the Dark Horse Project in motion, fulfillment was the last thing on our minds. We were hoping to uncover specific and possibly idiosyncratic study methods, learning techniques, and rehearsal regimes that dark horses used to attain excellence. Our training made us resistant to ambiguous variables that were difficult to quantify, and personal fulfillment seemed downright foggy. But our training also taught us never to ignore the evidence, no matter how much it violated our expectations.
