Alexis Arquette passed away September 11th following a tragic AIDS-related stroke, but Radar has discovered several eerie videos that proves that he had long since prepared himself for death.

In one home video that was filmed in 2008 and obtained exclusively by Radar, the late 47-year-old transgender rights activist goes into eerie detail about his own death and what awaits in the afterlife.

"Why try to figure out something that you are never gonna know? It's futile," Aruqette, then presenting as a female, said to friend Sham Ibrahim. "Anybody who spends their time on this... even those who write books, and philosophers and religious people are wasting my time and yours. It is just making up stories. What if it's that? What if it's this. Great. You don't know until you are dead."

When asked by Ibrahim if there is life after death, Arquette said, "I think if there is life beyond life it is whatever you expected it to be. If I was a gamble lady and I wanted to make a bet on what life would be like after death, it is sort of like a tear in the ocean. They say that energy never goes away. I've had things happen after people die. You know, weird things happen. Would I like to think that there is some other realm where we can come back and have an effect on the living? That sounds really arduous. I don't see myself being a ghost in the limbo trying to get the limbo to try and get the living to see us or hear us."

One year later, in a 2009 Youtube video entitled "Transsexual Reflections," Arquette is seen discussing the many physical and emotional complexities of his transgender status, seemingly fully aware that his death may be forthcoming.

"If this ends up killing me, at least I'll be doing what I want," he explained. "I'd rather die on a hospital table than never do this. I don't think people understand that."

He also spoke about some "health problems" that could eventually interfere with his transition. "Whether I have the surgery or not, eventually, if I have health problems, I can't do it for whatever reason, I'll always be a transsexual... I'm not a woman, I'm a transsexual."

As Radar has reported, Arquette was indeed plagued with health problems, including an HIV diagnosis in the 90's. The sickness caused his body to deteriorate over the years, and he ultimately did not go through with all of the surgeries that he had once looked forward to.
