Your brain decomposes (unless you freeze it to slow down chemical reactions because their rate is governed by the equation exp(-E/kT)), so protein molecules holding in their shape information (= your memory) quickly disintegrate into amino acids and then into simple more stable molecules like CO2, water, NH3, CH4 and some others. If you are lucky, your brain may be eaten by worms BEFORE it totally decomposes and thus you afterlife still exists in form of those worms. However, I doubt that those worms get any smarter eating "smart" brain versus worms eating "dumb" one.

What do you think, does information about shape (and about mutual arrangement of many molecules) survive when a complex molecule(s) decomposes?
