I view it from this side. After, I'll view it from the other side if there is such a thing.

@blueveinedthrobber,
The husband of one of my best friends in California called me today to tell me his wife died in her sleep last night. She died the way I would want to die---in my sleep with no suffering.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
SAME! or at least as a martyr. that would be a great if not painful way to die.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
We should keep in mind that even when our dying is painful, once "death" is achieved the pain ends and as well as all memory of it. With absolute peace what's to fear? (see my signature line).

@blueveinedthrobber,
I understand. I'd like to be prepared, in practical terms (settling my affairs), but I suspect that seconds after it happens there'll no memory of it.

I see death for life as vital as sleep is for wakefulness.
I imagine it as necessary as a shower a day.

I heard when you die, your pupils will dialate. (Which means get super big)
And that you see light for 10 seconds.
But...thats what I heard.

@Polished,
so that's where the term "dont go toward the light!" comes from. they want you to close your eyes.

Everybody dies but not everyone lives so we gotta live to the fullest and not fear what is completely inevitable that's how I see it

@Whitmofomonkysmugla2,
I like to rephrase Socrates: The unlived life is not worth examining.

@JLNobody,
Ahh Socrates the man who once said "Death may be the greatest of all human blessings." how is death a blessing though unless you go to a better place like per say heaven?

@hamilton,
death is the big silent guy hanging out over in the corner.

some nights I hear him breathing.

and some days he disappears for a while.

he smirks a lot as I try to get ahead...
