I don't think there's an answer for what happens when "we" as a species die. Some of us seem to hang around Earth for a long time but other people go to Heaven or Hell(or think they do, I'm on the fence about NDEs since they can conflict with each other) so it probably depends on what you think happens to you, but I think we all keep on ticking after the batteries are dead.

Staceyboo;
Lets look at all the peoples and cultures that history can tell us about.Or that you can conceive of.
How many cultures can you say do not believe in an after life.
I would say that I cannot think of 1 except in the modern age of industrialism.

Why would industrialism not want to believe in the after life?
It wants all your focus on producing here and now so the capitalists can continue to make great gains.
Greed says: "get it now because this is all there is."
So your statement "find it hard to believe we just die" is a good one and a good start.

Just MY OPINION.

As a Hindu I believe in reincarnation, with our births being governed by our karma from all past lives. Between this life and the next birth, we have beliefs in a sort of Purgatory. Some may stay there for a while, some may reincarnate immediately. Svarga is the heaven version, Naraka is the less-than-heavenly version, but it is not hell, nor are either permanent. They're just stopovers between births.

But as much as I want to believe that, and despite the ancient and worldwide cultural traditions that assert an afterlife, I know of nothing to suggest that it is more than wishful thinking."

He believed in a God as a Universal Force

What do you think of his statement?

Just a statement and his 'own' belief.

Taken with a grain of salt.

What is a human being? If a human being is just a physical body and consciousness somehow originates within the brain then physical death means the end of consciousness and the end of existence. If a human being is consciousness incarnated in a physical body then consciousness vacates the body at death and continues to exist, either remaining on the physical plane or moving to another plane of existence.

Perhaps this family member has tried to make contact but no-one is able to see or hear him/her. Or perhaps after dying they realised that their time on the physical plane was over and they moved on.

The answers to the mysteries of death will be revealed to us after we die, and that is one thing we can all look forward to. But there are plenty of hints available to us now if we are willing to investigate.

The heaven and hell which are taught by religions are said to be realms on the astral plane which may seem real to their inhabitants, but are in fact temporary stages in the after-death journey. So the average Christian may go to their idea of heaven where they are surrounded by similar others. And those of very low vibrations may find themselves in an astral hell, again surrounded by similar others. How long we stay in these heaven or hell places depends on us. Maybe we reach a point where we yearn for something better, and then the person in an astral hell is open to higher assistance, while the person in an astral heaven is ready to explore what might lie beyond.

There is so much information on these subjects available - we just have to start reading. Even better, try to find out the answers through first-hand knowledge, perhaps through out-of-body experiences.

Peace.

What do you think of his statement?

Did Carl Sagan ever bother to truly investigate this with an open mind? Or was he imprisoned by his own concepts.

Peace.
