No, we have to wait and see for ourselves. Won't be too long now for Susan and me!

However, nurses and doctors can tell lots about it. There are anecdotes (and this is not a dirty word) about things seen to leave a dying body, relatives who have shared beautiful visions with a smiling dying person.

My own sister told me that when our mother had died while she and her teenage son - of course - had been out of the hospital room for a short while, when they came back, they felt like a huge blessing, a wonderful feeling of love, in the room.
My sister's explanation was that our mum had blessed them with all she had or something like that, a concentrated whatever.

Hmm, maybe. Before that she was very, very scared of dying, my sister said. So, what happened, and how could the changed feeling hang around in a hospital room?

My sister was skeptical like Susan, always ready for this "there must be an explanation" thing, so she made up some fantastic stories, even more fantastic than the simple one that we are spirits in bodies. Kind of funny!

I think Susan's explanations of life and this weird survival wish from some unthinking entity that came from nothing is far more contrived than my idea of what we are.

Ah, well, whatever makes you happy!

GG.
