There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time. “Sum” David Eagleman
is one of the craziest books I’ve ever read. It describes in 40 different non-religious and non-scientific stories what the afterlife could look like. It simply a collection of crazy stories.
The third death in the quote above is something that often motivates me to be creative: to write, to sketch, or to create music. The creative work is what in the end can postpone the moment when your name will be spoken for the very last time.
