A belief about death


Folks,

Do you have a belief about death?

After decades of reading philosophy and theology books I've had a stab at clearing my mind on the subject. This is it:

'There are no words, written or spoken, that can enlighten us to the passage from this world'.

I can't justify this belief, but it is genuinely what I believe on the subject.

What's yours?

D.

Similar sentiments go back at least as far as Plutarch.

You're curious about what happens after you die, right? Guess what, I know. You're going to find out first hand before I finish explaining it, though, so I won't bother. Here's a hint: you're gonna want to pack as much living as you can into the next couple of minutes.
