    Oh, I don’t mean I know what would happen after death. Not at all. Death is most probably just nothing beyond death. Nothing. Purposeless. Just like this life: transient, short, the loops make us think & feel like being alive between non-existence and other non-existence. Purposeless. Enjoy it. Happily. Passionately! Purposefully! And celebrate our short-time living without regret :).
    Be true to yourself without afraid of death, of life, of anything.

    Possibly everyone has once felt afraid to give a presentation in public. For me, those experiences were always frightening. Even now I always feel uncomfortable before the presentation. I understand what people often say: presentations are more frightening than death.
    But then I must provide presentations so often: in academic circles, in both formal and informal fora, in the office, both planned and impromptu.
    What happens then: Death is no longer scary. I felt only sad when other persons die. But afraid? Never.
    Hmm. From time to time I still miss my dad. I imagine that one day I could meet him again. As soon as possible.

    Something reminds me of discussions about death some years ago at Parahyangan University. The professor kept referring to near-death experience phenomena (NDE), and extrapolated them. I still think that NDE is no more than NDE — nor a real death experience. At most, it is only a physical gateway. Asking about death to those who experienced NDE is similar to asking about London to those who have visited Jakarta Airport.
