INQUISITION 7: Death


Everyone dies.

We accept it calmly.

Despite some popular entertainment vehicles, our species knows that it is not possible to survive death as a computer file.

[see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind_uploading_in_fiction#Literature for a list of works]

Occasionally someone make an attempt like Russian Dmitry Itskov to outlive his mortal body. [Article here: http://www.popsci.com/technology/article/2012-03/achieving-immortality-russian-mogul-wants-begin-putting-human-brains-robots-and-soon]

There is in nature an acceptance of the inevitable. A rabbit which is wounded and about to be decapitated does not struggle. It accepts fate. Even insects will stop their struggle when death is unavoidable.

"How small a part of the boundless and unfathomable time is assigned to every man? For it is very soon swallowed up in the eternal. And how small a part of the whole substance? And how small a part of the universal soul? And on what a small clod of the whole earth thou creepest? Reflecting on all this consider nothing to be great, except to act as thy nature leads thee and to endure that which the common nature brings."

― Marcus Aurelius Mediations, Book Twelve, 32
