Another great link from Christian Sinclair. I love this video for its simple honesty. It reminds me of this article from Scientific American that talked about consciousness after death.
Many of us ponder death in a way that assumes we will have thoughts and sensations after it happens, but when it comes, both the article and the video say, we will simply stop, and we will not have consciousness to be aware that we have stopped. Therefore, there is no reason to fear our end.
In his post on the video, Sinclair compares its tone to that of a children's book. I could not have said it better myself. There is a simple, instructive narrative. A heartwarming feel, despite the hard subject. The narrator sounds like he wants to take care of us. To walk us gently through this harsh truth.
Give it a watch. I'm curious to know what other people think. Also, nothing really happens until the 40-second mark, so if you're a techy-generation, impatient sort, you'll want to zoom ahead.
