My question though is this:
What reason do we have to think that there is anything after 'death' that needs to be feared?
It is an unknown region.
No communication comes back from there.
We have no idea what color the walls are, or what they serve for supper.
Where does the fear stem from?
Are we 'surviving'?
Or are we being forced to stay here?
