@hamilton,
...when we learn enough to get to be the "other"...then we can let go...we are safe.

@Fil Albuquerque,
so what makes you think that, though?
(another way of asking "why?")

@hamilton,
...because without the "other" you were never yourself...
...we are "travellers"...dying is travelling into the "other"...
(besides round and round we go and we will end up repeating anyway)

@hamilton,
Has anyone shown concern about your utter fascination with death? Do you happen to be a person of the uberangst-filled and depressed emo persuasion (which to be fair is really really redundant if you ask me)?

@hamilton,
No...you will end up the "other" for real...a rock an apple a tree...not "you" any more !
..."you" will statistically repeat, but you won´t remember it, "you" will be the "other" even then ...and yet the entire Universe will statistically repeat...

@tsarstepan,
That pampered kitten has nothing to be depressed about, it's tough to be a man kitty.

@Fil Albuquerque,
...old wise people spend most of the day playing the "other" in their minds...with children, with nature, with a leave in their hands...
...around that age they stop judging, and eventually, they stop being (the "I") and die !...

@hamilton,
When the kidnappers demand you eat the brussel sprouts.

There is no set point for most. What there is for some (many?) is reaching a time of acceptance that life can end at any time and that to some degree that's okay. Sure there'll be things in the future which won't be experienced; but, hey, it's all good because there are so many things which were experienced just by having had the brief encounter with this thing called life.

@edgarblythe,
I saw a wonderful documentary on the career of Woody Allen. At one point he was asked in a formal setting his views on mortality and death. His answer was that he continues to be opposed to it.
