Death and our understanding of death are absolutely empty. No clear image comes to mind. The concept of death has a use for the living. All we can say about death is that it is either real or it is not real. If it is real, then the end of one's life is a simple end. If it is not real, then the end of one's embodied life is not true death, but transference to another life. We are all equals when thinking about death, lost in the ignorance of our own limitations, death is a fact of life but a mystery of creation.

Night 1 (Feb 27th)
Death Wrapped in Creation – Death comes for other people, but never for me. We know that we are going to die, but as long as we keep living, death remains over the horizon—a future end. We know we will die. How does an expiration date augment how we live? Do we accept it? Is death a required piece of creation?
