Monday, November 20, 2006It caught you didn't it, the title I mean, Death, this might help you understand why there is so much of just that in the media, would any of you've read on if it said "how to dust your chair properly"?
Death, oh how it attracts humans' attention, we're like vultures lurking above looking for more of the dead.
Its an amazing thing, death, how it affects the human mind in so many different ways.
When you see a dead body you might be feeling in awe, utterly terrified and almost insanely intrigued at the same time.
I believe that one of the reasons many people actually feel intrigued by dead bodys is that it is so uncomprehendable to us humans that something might make us dissapear without anything left.
I'm not a christian or a buddhist or a muslim, and I've got no grudge towards them(or people who follow any other religious direction), their way of living, or their beliefs, I consider myself a mix of an atheist and an agnostic, since none of the religions contains something that I can connect to in unquestionable even doubtful belief.
But nevertheless, I can't help but wonder if death really is the end, is it really an utterly devastating phenomenom that erases every single part of your person in a matter of seconds ?
Is it so, that when you die, there is no more, you are no more?
One thing about death that makes it so scary is the uncertainty, "Do I continue living, or is this the end ?", which leaves the option to become a memorable person, so that one can live on through other humans.
Not literally "live on" but having once's actions redone by another person following your footsteps, or an opinion of yours being spread, these are just examples of what can happen after you have left your imprint on society.
Do you believe in afterlife ?
For myself, I don't know yet, and I don't know if I ever will be able to decide, before I leave this world to check the facts for myself.
I'll try to write some more on "The retired assasin" Series and my book now.
Warmest regards to all readers,
