Conscious Death

When we are to die, and if we consider the afterlife as a conscious state, whose job is it to tell us that we are dead? Who will tell us to move on? Is it the angel of death? is it ourselves, our own subconscious? Can we only move on when we are at peace with our own death? Is that what life is; a constant fight against the idea of our own death?

Aren't these great questions?
