In this world death and afterlife still remains to be a mystery. Many people believe that they will go to either heaven or hell. It can be true, but until this present day, still there is no scientific explanation that can support the arguments. The word death can be defined scientifically or through spiritual belief. Base on scientific explanation, the word death can be describe as the permanent cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism. Phenomena that commonly bring about death include biological aging, predation, malnutrition, disease, suicide, murder, and accidents or trauma resulting in terminal injury.
On the other hand, through spiritual belief the word death is described as the next journey of our life. Till this present day the nature of death still become the greatest concerns of world’s religious traditions and philosophical inquiry. Not even the greatest philosopher can answer the question that has been around in human societies for millennia. When it goes to the discussion of afterlife every religion has their own stand. Based on Buddhism and Hinduism, the moment when a person past away it means that they start a brand new life; this is known as resurrection or reincarnation.
Whereas in Catholic, Christian, and Muslim they believe that they will go either to heaven or hell in their afterlife. In human societies the question “What is the meaning of life? ” is often asked, but the question “ What is the meaning of death? ” is rarely asked. As we progress in life soon or later we answer the question “What is the meaning of life? ” by itself. However when it goes to the question “What is the meaning of death? ” still there no proper answer for it, this is because no one can break or unfold the mystical of death.
To those that have soul and spirit, such question will always flow in and out from their mind. Why there is death, what is the meaning of death to those that is alive? Is it true that death is that narrow? Death is something that people always keep in mind. Death is something that man fears the most among all other issues. It is obvious that people always try to survive and sustain their life, no matter what it take. In fact, no matter how hard a person tries to prevent him or herself from entering death, still when the day has come their soul will be taken away.
Knowing the psychology of death is crucial because this is what that will enhance our mind towards meaning of death. This eventually will take away our fear and anxiety towards death. People greatest fear is towards death this occurs because they have no idea what will happen next in the afterlife. In this infinite universe nobody know exactly who and where they are. If we see our solar system from trillion miles away, we can see enormous number of system. Despite their shape and size, every system has their own uniqueness just like a specialized cell.
Through this it can be emphasize that our solar system actually is only a single cell. Based on science human is a multi-cellular, but if wee see from this perspective human actually is a single cell organism. These apply because human unique ability for carrying specific task clearly shown that they are just likes the specialized cell in the spinal cords and brain. What am I trying to say is that, in this universe it seems that we are a cell living within a cell. There is a possibility that there is a living organism live within our red blood cell.
However, with the current technology such exploration still cannot be done. Through this example it can be seen that death actually is not a mystery, but a part of cell cycle. We as people should know that death is part of life cycle Try to see our surrounding, is there any living organism that can live permanently. Try to see earth, a planet that has live for billion of years. It seems that earth can live permanently just like the immortal. However, when the time has come earth actually will die too just like the human being. The difference is only in the life expectancy.
There is several ways that can be done to confront our anxiety and fear towards death. As an individual we should determine which religion to follow. Through this we can follow their belief and get a brief view of what will happen in the afterlife. Towards death, there is nothing to worry about because this is something that man will not be able to escape, no matter how hard they try. Being in stress condition due to the anxiety towards death is a very bad idea. When a person is facing a stress usually such factors like increase in blood pressure and deplete in immune system would appear.
This eventually will cause the person to get sick easily and automatically shorten their life (if such deep stress occur continuously). Worrying and having anxiety towards death is such a waste of time. As they are worrying the death clock will always ticking, bringing closer that person’s life to an end. A person that know the precise answer for “What is the meaning of life? ” would totally do something different. They will do something that can change this corrupted world into a better place, leaving a legacy and footprints that can be use to inspire the your generations to follow.
