    If death didn't exist, would we recognize life? Why or why not?

        I do think that we wouldn't define it or appreciate it so much either.

      Do we recognize life as it is?

      I don't think so. What do you think?

        I think it makes as much sense as the thread title.

      If life didn't exist, then death would not be defined, nor would anyone be talking about it.

        So, you can't have one without the other?

          Why do you play games like this?

          Yes. You can have life without death, providing science/medical finds a cure for aging and all other diseases, which cause death.

            How could you comprehend how valuable life is if you didn't comprehend death? I don't think life could be comprehended if there was no comprehension of death. Why do you think I am playing a game all the time? Don't get angry. It's not logical.

                If there were no death ; how long do you suppose it would take before there was standing room only? If this were to happen then people would be wishing that they could commit suicide.
                Unless of course people stopped bringing new life into the world.

              Why does life have to have a value? The only value a person has for their life, is the meaning or purpose, for which creates value.

              Death isn't to be understood, beyond the fact that it ends life.

                lol You say death isn't meant to be understood? Then why do we have science to invent medicine to prevent sickness and death?

                  You're individual concept of death is sad. As is your understanding of words simply written.

                  Why do we have science to invent medicine to prevent sickness and death? Because, we know death ends life. Why else? Duh!

                  Man, you need to seriously slow down and read posts, and not read things into them. Then you wouldn't come out with statement, like this post.

                    lol, Are you serious? You say that we don't need to understand death, then why do we find ways to prevent death? That is part of understanding death. I think you are the lost one.

    Since death is the cessation of life, I don't see how.

    If there were no death, we would probably consider life and sickness as contrasting ideas. Healthy life would be the 'norm' and illness would be the opposite.

    If I may offer an explanation...

    This age is the product or communion of two opposites natures. These natures we all know and experience every single day. These are light and darkness, truth and lies, knowledge and ignorance, good and evil, positive and negative,  day and night, existence and nonexistence, life and death Etc etc.

    When the two natures abide in their true self, you would notice that one would be forever growing or eternal, and this nature have the positive attributes eg life, truth,good, etc etc..

    But the nature with the negative attributes will eventually fold in upon it self and ceases to exist ( or more correctly ceases to affect the opposite nature or reality ) 

    Eg. When negatives are multiplied they become positive or ceases to be negative.

    Now this age is suspended in time because it is temporary for each nature will eventually return to its pure state.

    Therefore to exist in it's present state, There must be continue communion of The two opposite natures.
    To achieve this end, laws are then devised and initiated in order to regulate the communion of good and evil.

    We see men forming organisation most with good intention but because none involved have not banished the evil within themselves they of necessity must regulate their  communion of good and evil with laws.

    Religion with their bible and Koran and other "holy scripts" are all perpetuating this  ungodly communion for their scripts are merely knowledge of Good and evil and their law.

    So we see for anyone to be on the positive side or in the kingdom of God, they must cleanse their heart ( the womb of every desires) from everything unclean or evil  or negative by seeking and observing truth ( Christ ) within.

    And God ( all good things ) is with then for their hearts are pure.

      Very interesting comments you stated. I am still thinking about the first half. I disagree when you add the bible at the end and absolute belief. Nevertheless, Great comment. Thank You.

        I believe you read quickly and you misunderstood the comment for I believe we already settled that issue a while aback.

        Or maybe I an not reading you correctly this time?

          marinealways24posted 8 years agoin reply to this

          Yes, I'm sorry, I misread. Very well written. What do you mean our age is suspended and will return to it's pure state? I would think of a pure state with no laws and actually chaos. However, maybe pure would equal chaos if there were no laws or government. Are you saying it is designed chaos or designed to prevent chaos?

          1. kess profile image61
            kessposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Purity of state means all the negative are grouped together which is actually total impurity and chaos and apart from all the positives which are also grouped as one which is total perfection.

    Life and Death are both Illusions that allow us to remain or depart this nasty physical existence so we can accomplish our goals,what ever those may be.
    consider this,Atoms are 99 percent space,Nothing.We are made of Atoms,this fact begs the question:How much of us is Here in the first place?...

        imagine if we know that we are not going to die, we will have sex without protections, we wont be scared of AIDS etc, we will be more adventurous and we will maybe jump from the sky without protection, but maybe we will still on the search for powerful nuclear boimbs etc to kill or inflict pain to others? can we experience pain then???we will be continously testing our limits
