Death: The most certain thing in life

Updated on December 20, 2014

The human life and its various phases are simply just a reality of an existence, which evolves, as we grow older. The older we get we become more aware of certain things .In our life with our experiences we accumulate and gain confidence in our certainty with more experiences and make them a part of what we consider our reality. We begin to learn to reason, be knowledgeable of various aspects of life, which we weren’t perhaps few years before.

As we know that change is the only constant and through this change, which we experience over time, we gain into our personality and character certain nuances, which can further help us being more responsive to the life of this world. The only certainty in life according to me is death. There is no way one can deny death. There are various phases of life, which comes to the end of all, and that stage is death.

Death is known as the parting of one’s soul from ones body. The parting of soul from this world to another reality. Death to many is the scariest thing. As death does not depend on wealth, intellect, kindness, it just happens. One can’t deny that they won’t die because it's a reality which each has to come eye to eye sooner or later. Age however is not the primary factor of death.

As humans,we learn to use cognitive and motor skills and get educated. We are embraced by a family or make a support system and as one gets older his perception on things change and life evolves. There to live is to grow. The subject of biology deals with the study of life and it is in this study we learn about human life cycle, reproduction and various stages of human life from an infant to an adult.

  • Fear: Many associate the feeling of “fear” with death, as when death happens when is physically no longer a part of the world and fears to loose the loved ones and the materialistic possession. We all as humans at various points in our lives are certain of so many different things. We all are subject to so many different things and it would not be incorrect to say that we are constantly searching for something. As Humans we go through various stages of life and yet at times we are not convinced that we did things to our fullest. A person who lives his life and follows his goals and passion, no longer fears death because if one acquires what he wanted to attain there is no greater feeling than that. The only difference between a person living and dead is of having freewill.
  • Thanatology:The study of death and ding is known as Thanatology. At the end of the human life span, people face the issues of dieng and death (the permanent cessation of all life functions). Death is a depressingly inevitable consequence of life, but now scientists believe they may have found some light at the end of the tunnel. The largest ever-medical study into near-death and out-of-body experiences has discovered that some awareness may continue even after the brain has shut down completely. One man even recalled leaving his body entirely and watching his resuscitation from the corner of the room. Despite being unconscious and ‘dead’ for three minutes, the 57-year-old social worker from Southampton recounted the actions of the nursing staff in detail and described the sound of the machines.

We know the brain can’t function when the heart has stopped beating,” said Dr Sam Parnia, a former research fellow at Southampton University, now at the State University of New York, who led the study. But in this case, conscious awareness appears to have continued for up to three minutes into the period when the heart wasn’t beating, even though the brain typically shuts down within 20-30 seconds after the heart has stopped.

“The man described everything that had happened in the room, but importantly, he heard two bleeps from a machine that makes a noise at three minute intervals. So we could time how long the experienced lasted for.

“He seemed very credible and everything that he said had happened to him had actually happened.”

      lol but there countries like UAE and Saudi Arabia that are tax free. Also there ways people avoid taxes , so for taxes one could perhaps avoid or hide from it but with death it just happens.
