Death - door or mirror, or both?
No - it is the end. Every single idea of something after death comes under the heading of anecdote.

You can, of course, believe whatever you wish, but by dwelling on wishfulthinking, you could be missing out on for instance, the song of a bird , the flight of another, the sounds of nature, the millions of real things, real people, real nature going on around you, both pleasant and the unpleasant. After sight loss, I quicly realised how much goes on in the periphery of sight and hearing that goes into your head even though you are not consciously aware of it. I use that area of vision all the time.
When you read, whether fiction or non-fiction, revel in how lucky we as humans are to have the ability to see and hear the words and thoughts of others, understand and learn more about how we humans have evolved and used the characteristics and traits we have evolved to have. Understand that when you are asleep, your brain carries on working in the areas it deals with during those periods of unconsciousness. Don't waste time trying to say that the experimental work which shows the subconscious part of our brains is a split second of full awareness of actions is not true 'because you know it isn't'!!
Most importantly of all, do not fear the end. We will have had lives and that's fantastic - being a part of the unbroken line of life since it began with all its variations and twists and turns.
We would all like our endings to be neat and tidy, but spending time worrying about that will not help. Just do all you can to remain as well in body and mind as you can.

We will be remembered, to various extents, by those who have met us during our lives, but unless we have done something extremely memorable, that too will fade.
But we will have had our part in it

Susan
