I have said that I am not afraid of the idea of Death, hoping only that I encounter it without pain.
I am not a believer in a conscious afterlife. I expect that the best to be hoped for is that what physical elements that remain will blend into the earth and fertilize the future, but the non-material essence that was me, will become the nothing it was before I was conceived.
Nothing is a difficult concept to conceive. Except for moments of sleep, we do not experience it. An inability to understand nothingness is the womb of gods.
