Death — the final stupidity?


Death is the final stupidity. Death is the only enemy of life.

Within 5 or 10 years if we gave the emotional, political and economic backing, our scientists would wipe out death.

Are you ready for that?

The interesting thing is that a lot of people want to die. And i you tell them they don’t have to die, they get mad. They say: “you can’t say that, death is what life’s all about!”.

Yeh that’s what they told you in the old Bibles. If you want to die, go ahead. But the option is there if you don’t want to. You don’t have to walk blind-folded and backward into the future that judeo-christian religion gives you of death.

You can live as long as you want, in these bodies.

– Timothy O’Leary


Quite a contrast from Alan Watts view of Life and Death.
