That’s a great perspective and really taking this one to the next level. I just wanted to stop with “death unites us” in this case because that’s also where Seneca’s letter stopped and there was already a lot to explore here leading up to it. Coming full circle would’ve blown this article out of proportion.

Also, I feel like most articles talking about the topic do touch on that, so I thought it might be refreshing to stop at our final, shared destination for once :)

But I agree with you, whatever perspective you develop on it should empower you, not make you depressed or sad!
