I've kinda got this theory about it all which no one else seems to get but I'm happy with it:|
We know time prior to your birth passed instantly relative to your existence now, since you didn't exist to experience its passing.
When you die, time will equally pass instantly relative to your now non-existence.
The possibility of "you" experiencing an existence in some form at any given point in time is near infinitely small.
But since time passes instantly when "you" have no conscience to experience it, the probability of you coming in to existence effectively approaches absolute certainty since a potential infinite amount of time and hence probabilities can occur instantly relative to your conscience.
So in effect, the moment you die, you will be reborn.
What you're reborn as is an entirely different question.

It gave me 11 years, which is one longer than I was planning.

I accidentally ("accidentally") watched the video of Tommy Cooper dying on stage. I've seen people dying on video before, but usually in quite extreme circumstances. To watch a man sort of deflate and slowly die is quite horrific.
I watched the last lap of Ayrton Senna with his onboard cam and it was quite chilling. In that last second it was like I felt something frightening, supernatural.
Then I watched it again, and there was nothing left of that.
Makes me wonder, how much of it all is just "stupid" emotions and how much is just cynical meaning-nothing-at-all?

Meh. For all anyone knows, you never actually die; your consciousness simply continues along the timeline where you stay alive! Or the closer you get to death, the more time slows, until life becomes an unending dream, caught in the moment before expiring.

Perhaps if the 'multiverse' theory is true then perhaps you never die. Your consciousness always skips to the event that allows you to live on. Like water always flows down the easiest route. Though at some point all variables would lead to an end. It'd just mean we would live until we're 100.
Maybe we should first clarify what life is then, and consciousness in particular, before jumping to conclusions about what happens in its last moments or why it would choose different mulitiversal paths. But I warn you, thoroughly understanding consciousness will take hours of EG discussion.
