Recently I got two email messages from someone who said he shared my fear of death and non-existence.
The fearful feelings were bothering him. He felt like no one else understood what he was going through. He wondered if he was going crazy. He asked me how I dealt with this fear, and if I wanted to live forever.
Here's the reply I sent to him tonight.
