If we reject the karma-caste-reincarnation trilogy, reject heaven/hell and believe that when we die our body turns to dust and our soul-energy is reabsorbed to wherever it came from (and this is a mechanism of natural law, there is no reward / bliss / merging or personal identity left behind), then what happens to nasty, evil people in the end? To my mind, their body will turn to ash and their soul-energy will be reabsorbed like the rest of us, and technically we could be as nasty as we want and there are no cosmic consequences. We would lose the chance to be immersed in Naam in our one precious human life, but if that has no impact on any kind of after-life then it's just a feeling of peace which makes life easier here and now but has no other function. If an evil criminal has managed to avoid justice in this life, then it's his luck apparently. His evil actions are unable to catch up with him and he goes free without consequences. If he's a psychopath he probably lacks a regular conscience like the rest of us and probably doesn't even feel bad about what he did, so it's not like his conscience would punish him either. Thoughts?
