Eternity, either in absolute happiness and fulfillment with God in Heaven, or in absolute horror and anguish in Hell, whichever we have freely chosen during our short stay on Earth.

Nobody knows. Those that claim they do know are out right liars. Claiming there is some sort of after life requires proof and evidence to support that claim. Claims without proof and evidence are just claims. Nothing more. And they can be dismissed as such. Don't assert it.... DEMONSTRATE it.

Perfection (and purification, if necessary).
The eternal rewards. Some will be more enjoyable than others.

That's like asking where a river goes when it stops flowing, or where the wind goes when it stops blowing.

That is an excellent question that many people have thought about over the years.
Notice what the Bible teaches about the condition of the dead.
What happens at death is no mystery to Jehovah, the Creator of the brain. He knows the truth, and in his Word, the Bible, he explains the condition of the dead. Its clear teaching is this: When a person dies, he ceases to exist. Death is the opposite of life. The dead do not see or hear or think. Not even one part of us survives the death of the body. We do not possess an immortal soul or spirit. After Solomon observed that the living know that they will die, he wrote: “But the dead know nothing at all.” He then enlarged on that basic truth by saying that the dead can neither love nor hate and that “there is no work nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom in the Grave.” Ecclesiastes 9:5,6,10 Similarly, Psalm 146:4 says that when a man dies, “his thoughts perish.” We are mortal and do not survive the death of our body. The life we enjoy is like the flame of a candle. When the flame is put out, it does not go anywhere. It is simply gone.
WHAT JESUS SAID ABOUT DEATH
Jesus Christ spoke about the condition of the dead. He did so with regard to Lazarus, a man whom he knew well and who had died. Jesus told his disciples: “Lazarus our friend has fallen asleep.” The disciples thought that Jesus meant that Lazarus was resting in sleep, recovering from an illness. They were wrong. Jesus explained: “Lazarus has died.” John 11:11-14 Notice that Jesus compared death to sleep. Lazarus was neither in heaven nor in a burning hell. He was not meeting angels or ancestors. Lazarus was not being reborn as another human. He was at rest in death, as though in a deep sleep without dreams. Other scriptures also compare death to sleep. For example, when the disciple Stephen was stoned to death, the Bible says that he “fell asleep.” (Acts 7:60) Similarly, the apostle Paul wrote about some in his day who had “fallen asleep in death.”—1 Corinthians 15:6.
What the Bible teaches about the condition of the dead is comforting. As we have seen, the dead do not suffer pain or heartache. There is no reason to be afraid of them, for they cannot harm us. They do not need our help, and they cannot help us. We cannot speak with them, and they cannot speak with us.
Long ago, the righteous man Job raised this question: “If a man dies, can he live again?” (Job 14:14) Can a lifeless person who is sleeping in death be brought back to life? What the Bible teaches about this is deeply comforting. Please follow this link by copying and pasting in your web browser.

According to the giver of life to humans, the physical body rots in the grave while the immaterial part of the person experiences another dimension. This is explained in the Bible book of Ecclesiastes: "and the spirit returns to God who gave it" to then account to God for how life was lived in the body (chapter 12). Then, at a future time, God will start the Day of Resurrection and Judgment, when new resurrection bodies will be created to 'clothe' the spirits of the deceased, so that they can stand for judgment. Then their eternal state will be decided.
Jesus gave details of the interim period, before the Day of Resurrection, in Luke chapter 16 (second half) where he speaks of one man dying then finding himself in torments in hell, while another man dies and finds himself in bliss in what Jews called "the bosom of Abraham". Jesus also promised a repentant thief dying next to Him that he would be with Him in paradise that day, confirming Luke 16. As Jesus was the giver of life at the start of creation (John 1:1-14), He ought to know, telling us that He is The Way, The Truth, and The Life.
