funny looking heads? anal probes? no, i have no idea what you are talking about. liz, that was a very intelligent and thoughtful answer. but what is this "morally right" of which you speak? that is very subjective. as far as the metaphysical afterlife, i fluctuate between the view of "nothing, game over" and "you get what you deserve/what you think you deserve" - for nice people, it comforts me to think that if they believe they will get something nice afterwards, that they should. for really rotten people, it disturbs me to think they might get something nice, just because they think they should, and suffer no consequences of their rotten behavior, which seems most unjust. i have a mental picture of my afterlife, if i get such a thing, consisting of me sitting in a small room, mentally tearing myself to pieces for things i've done or said that i don't think were right, regardless of whether they are long forgotten (or ever even noticed) by those i feel i did wrong... no, wait, i do that now... if karma is a factor, i anticipate a lot of really large black widows, all lined up waiting for their turn to step on me... *shudder* as for seeing things in my head, i don't seem to be able to access as much data as i used to. which is a shame, i'm sure there are some things rattling around in there that would make me smile, i just can't remember them very well any more.
