What do you see yourselves doing on your millionth birthday ?
Bearing in mind that you will have no corporeal body, all the pleasures of this world such as food, drink, conversation, singing hymns, will not exist. So how will you celebrate being 1,000,000 ?

Probably have a lie in.
Err - age will not be a concept
Do you think there is life after Death? have you ever been somewhere either in the UK or abroad & thinking I have been here before, in my day's of Driving I have been to many places within the UK & the place was very familiar.

Because you delivered there the previous Month TWR?
i won't bother trying to blow the candles out

With MASSIVE set of lungs to be able to blow out all those million candles. !
I doubt we will have candles then .. the world will be a place with a total ban on greenhouse gases.
You will more than likely have some LED setup with a switch.

Will just have to wait and see ?
We'll have to go for a bracing dip in the River Lethe each morning no matter how cold it is. Then we'll spend the rest of the day in awe struck wonder at the grandeur of our new surroundings.
I`d come back and haunt AB.
What a strange question. Surely there are no days as there is no more experience of Earth orbiting a sun. And a deathday, if there were days, may be more important than a birthday. And who says that pleasures of a corporeal existence holds any interest when in a spiritual realm ? Who is to say that time is even experienced as it is here ?
Stephen Fry says:

What happens after you die?
Lots of things, but none of them involve you any more.

That said, when I'm 1,000,000 I think I'd like to go for a ghostly run on the beach ... just to show that I've still got it in me!
People will probably look at me blankly ;-)
Just hang out
For those with an interest in choral singingations:
"And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation...And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever." (Rev 5). You will probably want to change some of the words and certainly the arrangement every million years of so.
And thee will be reality TV too. Here's one of the early Christian Fathers peering into the Big Brother house:
“At that greatest of all spectacles, that last and eternal judgment how shall I admire, how laugh, how rejoice, how exult, when I behold so many proud monarchs groaning in the lowest abyss of darkness; so many magistrates liquefying in fiercer flames than they ever kindled against the Christians; so many sages philosophers blushing in red-hot fires with their deluded pupils; so many tragedians more tuneful in the expression of their own sufferings; so many dancers tripping more nimbly from anguish then ever before from applause." (Tertullian)
I see considerably more literary talent in Tertullian than I do in Hilary Mantell. (But what's that got to do with anything, VE?)
If I believed it would be with the hope that I'd then be trippin' to the Moody Blues

I expect that eternity in paradise will become a bit of a drag after a while.

We are a species of small mammals occupying an insignificant ball of rock, orbiting an insignificant yellow dwarf star residing in one of the outer spiral arms of a generic galaxy. We live, on average, about 60 years. We speak about thousands of years as if it's nothing. We casually discuss millions of years as if we have a grasp and a concept of such vast timescales - we don't. We think we can because the words themselves are easy to say and it's easy to conceptualise the changes in rock morphology and tectonic plate shifts. We've become accustomed to time-lapse video; we can all easily picture the continents of the world moving, splitting apart and crashing into one another like some Hollywood movie special effect.

But I don't believe that any one of us can even begin to comprehend just how long actually living for a million years would feel. How about ten million years? Or hundred million years? A billion? An eternity? The numbers roll easily off the tongue and quickly become meaningless.

I don't think that people advocating such an existence have really thought through what "eternity" truly means.
Yes birdie - but all you say is from a human's conception and understanding .

Who says our conciousness of life after death will have any relation to how we think about our present existence on this side

Who says there will be such a concept of a million years in the after life ?
"The first 500 million years were the worst. The second 500 million years were also the worst. After that I went into a slow decline.".
"but all you say is from a human's conception and understanding ."
What other might we have, Bazile?
