"What should we think about death?" Narrated by Stephen Fry - That's Humanism!


This is a good one. 


Thinking about life is kind of nice, especially when it is without the magical thinking. Life end and there is no afterlife or soul.


That's comforting as we don't really want to go and on. We don't survive brain dead. We are not going to turn into zombie or angel. 


We just died and the body without a functioning brain would rot.  


I like to think about death to a tired life. People who are obsess with continue an imaginary life after death that they forgot to live a little, to love a little, to let people the freedom to be who they are inside. 


Life is painful and wonderful and have good and bad surprises. Why not?
