For some reason people seem to dislike death. It’s quite strange actually. I’ve heard hundreds, possibly thousands of living people complain about how hard being alive is – and how stressful it is to exist. Yet, I’ve never heard of a dead person complain about being dead. Stress, suffering, pain – these come as a result of having consciousness. Without consciousness these feelings do not exist. Death is the end of consciousness, and thus is the end of pain. And yet people say death is a bad thing.
