Death ! The word itself brings a weird feeling of emptiness in our heart. If we recall the first instance when we learned about death, in our early childhood or teenage, we may start remembering the trauma we may have felt, or the questions we may have asked to our parents or guardians. I as a kid remember the very moment, when I first released the power of death, I started crying , I was scared I knew I will loose my Mother, Father & Brother, my grandmother consoled me as my parents were out for some work. When they came back I was at ease, my mother sat with me and made me understand. Still for many coming days I was uneasy with this notion and my helplessness to overcome it. As we grow this painful knowledge (This Disrupts our Brains Prime Motive of Survival)is repressed by the censor function in our Brain, even most of the time we just don’t remember it consciously. Which helps us to move ahead in life and accept it in more positive manner keeping the negativity at the bay. That is how smartly our unconscious mind functions, as it know we may not have the resources to deal with such information.
Why do we have to Die? Why everything has to perish? Who told us that we were to die eventually? This are all questions which pushes us to “The Existential Thoughts” Why am I Here?, this is a different take form what we have here at hand so will not go in depth with this. My point is to show, Death and its origins are untraceable except in Religions Doctrines against that in Scientific Justifications. There are many religious doctrine which may give us the reasons and the origin of Death. Read in the links attached
This articles I came across which gives a good brief of various belief on how various religions deals with Death and gives us logic, why death is inevitable. Non of the religious doctrine teaches us to be immortal in this physical form. Which I find to be very interesting. All mankind is taught to die as if we are being programmed in such a way from ancient times. My Question is simple, Is this Knowledge of Death really creating a psychological and physiological phenomenon of death?
Can Death Be a choice?
If we refer to the verse in Bible (WEB) Genesis 1: (26) God Said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the sky, and over the livestock’s, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth”. Genesis 2: (16) Yahweh God commanded the man saying, “You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; (17) but you shall not eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil; for in the day that you eat of it, you will surely die”. This suggest that man in its sinless form was immortal, because he was devoid of any knowledge as if he was just his own “Self” or the state of “Enlightenment” away from all worldly worries and reasoning or emotions,only the Tree of worldly knowledge brought death in this world. Even, Lord Buddha due to awareness of death, was made to go in search for truth and found Death is inevitable for who is bound with this worldly desires and ways.
All this suggest that we need to some how unlearn this worldly knowledge which we have inherited in our brain, body, whatever way from the tree of knowledge from Garden of Eden. Our bodies are more than capable of passing the information through Genes which we have now discovered. This information has been passed on through first Man to us and it will go on. Even our nature constantly suggests us with notion of Death, through trees, animals and others. Our brains are constantly reminded of Death. So what it takes to be Immortals ? Can we find a way to stop the exchange of this information to our brains, which may enhance ours life or even make us immortals. Where Death would be choice of ours. Only if Man would not have originally sinned we would have been living this life of immortality.
