description: Death is the cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism. Phenomena which commonly bring about death include biological aging, predation, malnutrition, disease, suicide, murder, and accidents or trauma resulting in terminal injury. Out of all these manners of death, which are acceptable and which are not? Besides physical death, what other forms of death are there? And what emotions do you associate with death: sadness, loss, fear or maybe it's relief, hope, and promise? Whatever feelings you experience in relation to death probably depend a lot on what you think happens after death. Currently, there is no convincing scientific evidence that suggests consciousness survives the death of an organism but there are numerous and varying religious and philosophical beliefs that purport an afterlife, rebirths, or eternal oblivion. It's time to adventure within our beliefs about death and what happens after death because these beliefs largely inform how we live today. How ready are you for death?
