A blessed moment, 2019
Life is uncertain. It is a series of choices and you can not control everything you want. Not even my birth is made up of my own choices. But there is only one certainty. It is death. We have the certainty that we will die from the blessed moment we are born. It is ironic. Humans are afraid of death. This is because the afterlife is an unknown world.
So human beings in history have tried to escape mortality. For example, Mummification and Cryonics. Their bodies remain. So, are they successful? Many great men remain with us in history after death. Can this be said to be transcending mortality?
