Today, of Death

Monday, 2 September 2002

today i talk about death. logically people should have no fear of death. illogically we try various and sundry forms to prolong our lives and use terminology such as escape, cheat, and avoid in reference to death. News flash. no one can escape, cheat or avoid death. period. life and death are dichotomous and cannot exist apart from their opposite. if there is no death, there can be no viable idea of life if it has no point of reference, no finitude. perhaps that is why infinity is so hard to comprehend, since we are infinitely finite. this holds true for all dichotomies.

there is also the null set, indifference, lack of either life/​death, love/​hate, sacred/​profane. where all is void. unexplainable by me.
