Death is a tricky thing to think about. On one level, I know objectively that some day I will die. I have done a lot of Buddhist meditation, and am familiar with the teaching that we all will grow old and die. Even though I’m an optimist about technology, I don’t believe we will “solve” death. Maybe we will figure out how to live a little bit longer, but we aren’t going to be living for 1,000 years any time soon. Still, even though I accept the surface-level facts about death, I still can’t quite wrap my head around it.
