when you die you lose brain function, your primary and only tool in perceiving time, and existing. without it, what's to stop time from ending the universe?

time isn't linear; nobody perceives time exactly as someone else does. and that's even more-so with other animals.

so when we die we can no longer perceive time at all, because all 'time' is, is something our brains translated for us to make a little sense out of reality. Without it, could the universe end?

Color is merely an interpretation of the brain.

Some people are color blind.

Do color blind people end color?

Time is subject to the flow of energy. If everything in the universe stopped all at once, which theoretically can happen if the universe was sucked into a black hole for example, time in that universe would stop. It is not subject to how our minds perceive it.

I blame Brian Green for this statement. So many people just regurgitate a sentence they heard from a popular physicist without understanding why it was said. And as a result, they use it wrong.

Granted, people like Brian Green are often misleading in order to make their work sound more interesting to the masses. Not to say that it isn't interesting, it's just that most people want to hear some little statement instead of going through the time to learn the full concept.

slightly different to dying...

But colour exists in the universe, and if the universe exists; so does colour. so The only way to end colour would be to end the universe, which potentially happens when you die.

So blind people are only losing the ability to distinguish colours

Your perception of time would cease as would your perception of all things, your specific brand of time would no longer be perceived but I think it would still exist as a hypothetical thing, because time passes everywhere (I think, IDK) whether it is observed or not (Once again, I think IDK)

All that aside I think a persons linear passage through time as they observed it would continue after death.

TS is a fag.

And to answer the question, yes, it does end. But only when I die, not anyone else, because I'm that awesome.

He's a semi-famous theoretical physicist.

And no. The universe does not end when you die. Are you some ego-centric 7 year old?

The earth will keep spinning around the sun which is orbiting in our galaxy which is smack dab in the soup that is our universe. Suns will keep burning and 7 billion people will keep on living not knowing that you died or even existed

Do you mean that the universe could end anytime after you die and you would be unable to "observe" it? (Yes) or that the universe ends for you? (Yes)

It's wibbly-woobly, timey-wimey... Trust me, I'm the Doctor

Time continues physically, yes. Metaphorically, your time is over, therefore your consciousness ends its turn perceiving time. All of your particles continue existing within and being affected by time and the universe, but as for your consciousness, time is over, because your consciousness is a result of those aforementioned particles in their exact right place.

So, wibbly-woobly, timey-wimey.

While that is true, we all, including animals, still percieve time one way or another, therefore after we die there is still going to be something alive that percieves time.

If you are talking about the deaths of every living thing, then we must look at what was happening before life existed for the answer. As far as we know, the universe existed for a very long time before life did, after all, you need a universe to exist first so that life has something to exist in, so if we consider that the universe existed for all that time without the existence of life, then there's no reason to think that all life ending would also cause the universe to end.

Obviously it does. They have no conscious any more. Everything ends for them.

Quote by Trowzaa

It is actualy possible to present an argument against that.

If we consider life as basicaly consisting of two things, a physical presence and a conscious presence, then we can also consider that although the conscious presence ends at the point of death, the physical presence continues for a while and goes through natural changes during decomposition, so, in that sense, "everything" doesn't "end" for them at the point of death, it just ends for their conscious presence.

the problem with questions like this is you haven't specifically defined the extremely heavy words used in question. to get an answer to a question, the answer will be in as much detail as the question. another problem with this question is it relies heavily upon personal perceptions. there is no answer to this question for this reason, just speculation that leads to learning about specific terms and perceptions. if you told me the world you cannot see right now does not exist, that is an equally 'acceptable philosophical perception' as the idea that even things we do not see exists, just like holding the idea that the universe ends when we die is an equally 'acceptable philosophical perception' as the idea that we are just eyes that pick up the real world for an amount of time until we rot, and after we rot things are still there even if we can't see them, just like the idea that nature flows was equally acceptable to the idea that nature is one..

so instead of asking these philosophical questions and expecting an answer, you have to ask them and expect a lot of speculation ending with an understanding to not only the credibility of all the different perceptions, but an understanding of the unspecific and deafening nature of the question you asked.

this may be bullshit because it's a scrambled thought, but i encourage people to challenge my belief. please note this isn't a resentful rant, i've thought about questions like these for a very large portion of the last 3 or so years, and conclusions like these are what i come to.

No, of course the universe doesn't end, you jumped up dingus. You die, you get buried in a hole to be eaten by worms and the everything carries on. Probably a lot happier because of it, too.
