Energy may not be able to be destroyed

but that doesn't mean you live forever. Just like the matter in a hog isn't destroyed when it goes through a sausage maker, but the hog knows the difference.

Your mind is an electrochemical pattern sustained in a physical matrix. Your brain. The energy doesn't get destroyed when you die but 'you' most certainly do. Just like when you put a disk drive in a trash compactor. The program is done. END OF LINE.

If there's an afterlife it is of divine origin, or something so advanced it appears divine. The answer isn't in QM. QM isn't even particularly settled.
