Question: If you knew things weren’t going to end after you die. Would you still fear death?
Answer: It depends how painful death is. We would still fear the pain as we fear everything that is unpleasant to us.
Fear has many permutations. We could reach a unique fear – knowing that physical is not the end – when we fear that we won’t acquire that special new perception, consciousness that can sense the dimension of existence beyond physical life and death.
And the purest fear is when we fear not sensing, accomplishing that “beyond” as by that failure we blemish the perfection of Nature’s evolutionary system, we fail to justify is perfection.
