A new theory based on quantum physics says there's life after death - Ideapod. What if the Stoics were right; but, there is an explanation for the basic truth that everything external to us is beyond our control; but, that the reason is that we control our perceptions? What if our world is a construct of our minds? Unlike the Matrix, it isn't a construct created by machines or computers; but, in fact, something our consciousness creates? Biocentrism is a theory that postulates that, when we die, we are merely pausing our current perception, and moving to another; one of an infinite number of possible realities. Physical death is just a passage from one reality to another. Call it Heaven, or call it God, we are our own Creators, and our reality is our own creation. Now, your brain can explode.
