From time immemorial mankind is intrigued with the thought about what happens after death but the question is still unanswered. To answer it one has to die and come back to tell but it is not possible because the ticket is one way. But suppose we know scientifically about this. What then? How will our lives change, how will religions, cultures, and societies will get impacted? We dwell on this aspect in this paper. The paradox of learning about the mystery of death without actually dying will manifest one day as did the revelation of the mystery of the brain with brain researching brain. We either outlive death or we don’t. Both scenarios are considered while discussing the changes our lifestyles will undergo when we know in scientific terms about what happens after we die.
