What is death?

Why do we fear death when we don't even know what it is?
Typically death is when a living organism is no longer functioning, decays and is recycled back into his basic components. Yet we still hear stories of people coming back from the dead and describing places and things that they should not be able to. We also hear people recount past lives and yet we still insist on allowing religious and scientific dogma to get away with not really answering the question. Is death the end, and if so how is anyone able to come back and describe places they've never been, people they've never met, and conversations that they should not have been able to hear? Science conveniently explains it away as latent electrical activity or just reflexes and religion refuses to even take up the question, yet Christ supposedly rose from the dead. Is it possible that were all just holograms in a computer simulation? A computer program explain a great deal of what is experienced in death? Rising from the dead would be simply resurrecting a character like in a videogame. Wouldn't it be nice to know that nobody ever really dies, but instead is saved into memory for another game in another world? Is it possible that science doesn't spend a great deal of time on the subject because it has no way of reaching an ethereal reality composed of computer programs or do they simply fear ridicule from religion for once again playing God? Maybe it is not a matter of playing God, but simply figuring out how to place a phone call to the creator of the game? 

"Could you please return my friends and family to the game, so we can continue to play the game?" "I miss them dearly."
