God tells us in his inspired Word, the Bible, that death is the opposite of life. The terminology "could be" is nothing more than personal opinion aka speculations. But since that seems to work for you, go for it.

So is the Bible, it is no different than any other written book it was transcribed by human interpretations of events of history. The bible didn't exist before humans, it wasn't discovered by humans centuries after creation, it was derived from events that transcended human interpretation at the time of said event. So the terminology "bible" could also be interpreted as opinion. Nothing is absolute when it is open to interpretation.

I don't recall quoting any scriptures dealing with death in my previous post.
But you did. You claimed "According to the Bible, the dead are unconscious and know absolutely nothing." which is a reference to Eclessiastes 9:4-6 which is also open to interpretation and not an absolute. Most theologists would say that scripture represents the separation of soul and body, we leave behind what we were for what we are to become, again a human interpretation.
