“Death” is the state of “not being” after we have been alive.
We have no word describing the time before we were born. But in fact, the condition of our non-being is exactly the same.
Therefore, we can say, we have “experienced” the nothingness already; without being able “to know “.
“Death” will only be our return to nothingness.
Our angst, or fear, of death, results from us recognising the difference of being and not being.
Therefore, our fear of death is the proof of being alive!
What then is life?
It is but a break in eternity!
Time exist only for the living.
Being alive is standing on the crest of a wave, but inevitable the wave will fall back and unite with the ocean of eternity!
