Death, is a series of changes through which an individual passes.

Hinduism believes in the rebirth and reincarnation of souls. The souls are immortal and imperishable. Each Life experience on earth and each incarnation of soul offers the jiva an opportunity to learn and overcome its inconsistencies.

The soul therefore needs to be born again and again till it overcomes its state of dillusion and realizes its completeness.

Ancient sanskrit texts reveal
yaṁ yaṁ vāpi smaran bhāvaṁ
tyajaty ante kalevaram
taṁ tam evaiti kaunteya
sadā tad-bhāva-bhāvitaḥ

that whatever state of being one remember at the time of death, that state he will attain in the next life. The understanding is that whatever you do in this life will determine what you remember at the time of death. That is why many ancient cultures, like the Egyptians for example, seemed obsessed with death, because they understood that if they want to attain a particular destination in the next life, that they have to live in a certain way now and observe certain behavior.

Regarding the next destination, it is also stated
jātasya hi dhruvo mṛtyur
dhruvaṁ janma mṛtasya ca

that "One who has taken his birth is sure to die, and after death one is sure to take birth again".

this is called samsar. the cycle of birth and death, in many traditions, including Buddhism, Hinduism, Vaishavism and a number of others. The same them comes up everywhere.

The cycle can be stopped by spiritual process, but that's a bit off topic.

The point is that there are a number of destinations that you can attain, depending on your consciousness at the time of death.
Every action of every person is either an act of love, or a cry for love

We are eternal spiritual beings made for love and possess an infinite capacity to love. Every moment is an opportunity to learn how to love.

There is no need whatsoever to be automatically catapulted back into physical life on this planet.
There is much learning and service in the next world. If or when or where we 'return' is absolutely up to us.

I hope we go somewhere but the evidence suggests nothing. We still await the definitive white crow.

In quantum physics, String Theory suggests the existence of multiple dimensions, if consciousness/thought creates reality (again supported by The Observer Effect in quantum physics), and the nature of our reality is tied to our individual belief system, then after death, with our consciousness still coherent, it is logical to infer that whatever we hold true in this life will accompany us into the next one.

If one for instance sees Jesus or God welcoming them(or whatever experiences have been documented from people who have had NDE's) then surely it is valid to conclude that being with Jesus/God/heaven/loved ones who have gone before, the devil/hell, or any other deity that is tied up to their belief system will be their next experience of reality after they pass on.

I believe it follows that whatever we believe in, in this life will follow us and be a major part of our experience beyond it. Multiple dimensions are possible, according to the String Theory, and we will create them, according to the Observer Effect, and they will be tied to our individual beliefs.

Perhaps it behoves us to understand, while we live and study, the truth about our being, our conscious reality, and what we are empowered to do to create the reality we desire to live in, in this life and the next, for it seems that whatever we hold true in this life will accompany us into the next one.

We can deduce from quantum science that the place we go to after death will be of our own making.
