I'm only trying to remove their fear of death.

Serious question: Why do you assume that anyone who doesn't believe in a holographic universe or god, for that matter, fears death? I do not understand.

My SIL died of a brain tumor (6.5 days from diagnosis to death) at age 45. She was so terrified of death that my brother told the docs to keep her sedated even though it meant he didn't have the opportunity to say goodbye because he didn't have the heart to tell her she was dying. Very sad.

I, OTOH, can't seem to muster any fear of dying. Now, it's possible I could change my mind if I'm aware of my imminent demise but, at the moment, the thought of dying holds no threat and I am fully aware that I have far more yesterdays than tomorrows on this earth. Five of six elders (parents, 3 grandparents) died within a 4 1/2 year period during my early-20s. Maybe arranging or helping arrange all those funerals made me more accepting.
