I'm not sure where the next step on this thought ladder is, though.


The next step is the acceptance of reality.
You will not be aware of "eternity."
This is because you will no longer exist except in the memories of those who know you.
Fearing death is very strange to me.
There is nothing there to fear.
When you go to sleep at night it's very like being dead (if you are not dreaming). You wake up and hours have passed but you don't recall any of them. But so peaceful! No worries. No pain. No sadness. No nothing.

Fearing death is also futile because we will ALL die. Every last one of us.

It's the actual dying part that is uncomfortable to me.
As Dorothy Parker once said, “I know this will come as a shock to you, Mr. Goldwyn, but in all history, which has held billions and billions of human beings, not a single one ever had a happy ending.”
