No rebirth - what happens next?

Yes, most of us are Buddhists here so we know the advantages of being content with what we have and a simple life.

Yes, while most people are not Buddhists, they don’t see the advantages of a simple life and being content with what they have, so they constantly pursue pleasures; unless one has some view of some type of afterlife, be it heaven, hell, purgatory, rebirth, etc.

I believe it was Bhante Gunaratana in one of his books, where he described it as a movie reel, where one tries to pursue one pleasure after another and then as the reel turns, giving the illusion of a continual happiness. But as we know, this is not how it ends up being a real happiness.
