What 慶功(’67) just wrote about the deaths of people close to him has moved me deeply, as I read it after a trip after Easter (which, of course, is the Christian answer to Death). So I feel a need to express some thoughts on this “eternal” subject, immature though they are.
Death is a debt that everyone repays, eventually. One common way to “QE” the debt is stoicism; another is religion. I subscribe to neither, but, in recent years, have developed some preliminary ideas of the “scientific” way to face Death.
