Here was a man who now for the first time found himself looking into the eyes of death--who was passing through one of those rare moments of experience when we feel the truth of a commonplace, which is as different from what we call knowing it, as the vision of waters upon the earth is different from the delirious vision of the water which cannot be had to cool the burning tongue. When the commonplace 'We must all die' transforms itself suddenly into the acute consciousness 'I must die--and soon,' then death grapples us, and his fingers are cruel; afterwards, he may come to fold us in his arms as our mother did, and our last moment of dim earthly discerning may be like the first.

Those who think about death, carrying with them their existing ideas and emotions, usually assume that they will have, during their last hours, ideas and emotions of like vividness. but they do not fully recognize the implication that the feeling faculty, too, is almost gone. The imagine the state to be one in which they can have emotions such as they now have on contemplating the cessation of life. But at the last all the mental powers simultaneously ebb, as do the bodily powers, and with them goes the capacity for emotion in general. It is, indeed, possible that in its last stages consciousness is occupied by a not displeasurable sense of rest.

    No Fear Shakespeare puts Shakespeare''s language side-by-side with a facing-page translation into modern English—the kind of English people actually speak today.

    A man dies. only a few circles in the water prove that he was ever there. And even they quickly disappear. And when they're gone, he's forgotten, without a trace, as if he'd never even existed. And that's all.

    Of all the events which constitute a person's biography, there is scarcely one. to which the world so easily reconciles itself as to his death.

    I was aware of my own mortality at an early age. I didn t grow up in the best environment, to put it nicely. I dont think I fear death, pain and disability would bother me more. I m 47 and I have diabetes. What bothers me the most about that is the many complications of diabetes rather than death. I m alone and will probably be for the rest of my life and I dont want to go blind, lose a limb or a kidney, or suffer nerve damage. I must stay as strong as I can, as long as I can. In the meantime, I enjoy life by being silly and helping others.

    Sheryl Sandberg lost her husband, Dave Goldberg, 30 days ago in a tragic treadmill accident while on vacation in Mexico.

    In the month since Goldberg''''s death, Sandberg has learned about love, life, and how to cope with extreme grief. She wrote all these lessons down in a Facebook essay so that others who face tragedy can learn from her experience.

    For lost and fretful white men, unwilling to accept the terms of a new America, Congress is the last barricade against practical and inevitable change. But there, too, the demographic inevitabilities are all in play. All the gerrymandering in this world won’t make those other Americans, those different Americans, go away. And the tyranny of minority and lack of compromise that you employ to thwart progress now will likely breed an equal contempt when the demographics do indeed provide supermajorities.

    It’s a little funny how, with all the information available these days, there are still people who haven’t the slightest idea of how their own planet works, yet feel even remotely qualified to combat well known natural facts, usually by hatefully spouting off scripture from some ancient, very out-of-date religion, as if man’s word has any influence on the workings of the known universe.

    Granting the perils of the world, it is potentially a very costly indulgence to fear indiscriminately, and to try to stimulate fear in others, just for the excitement of it, or because to do so channels anxiety or loneliness or prejudice or resentment into an emotion that can seem to those who indulge it like shrewdness or courage or patriotism.

    life after death does not fall under the jurisdiction of science, as science is concerned only with classification and analysis of sense data. Moreover, man has been busy with scientific inquiries and research, in the modern sense of the term, only for the last few centuries, while he has been familiar with the concept of life after death since time immemorial. The afterlife (also: life after death and hereafter) is the proposed continued existence of the soul, spirit or mind of a being after physical death. The major views on the afterlife derive from religion, esotericism and metaphysics. In many popular views, this continued existence often takes place in a spiritual or immaterial realm. Deceased persons are usually believed to go to a specific realm or plane of existence after death, usually determined by their actions during life. By contrast, the term reincarnation refers to an afterlife that is a continuation of physical life in this world. Those who are skeptical of the existence of the afterlife may believe that it is absolutely impossible, such as the materialist-reductionists, who state that the topic is supernatural, and therefore either does not exist or is unknowable. Types of views on the afterlife There are two fundamentally different types of views on the afterlife: empirical views based on observation and religious views based on faith. * The first type of claims are based on observations made by humans or instruments (for example a radio or a voice recorder, which are used in electronic voice phenomena, or EVP). These observations are made from reincarnation research, near death experiences, out-of-body experiences, astral projection, EVP, mediumship, various forms of photography etcetera. Academic inquiry into such phenomena can be broken down roughly into two categories: psychical research generally focuses on case studies, interviews, and field reports, while scientific parapsychology relates to strictly laboratory research. * The second type are based on a form of faith, usually faith in the stories that are told by ancestors or faith in religious books like the Bible, the Qur an, the Talmud, the Vedas, the Tripitaka et cetera. This article is mainly about this second type.
