You are convinced that death is an unavoidable event decreed by some basic scientific principle. Religion and science have made you believe that death is a universal law coming from above and as such, impossible to change, so you cannot hope for anything better than dying. To pursue physical immortality you have to get rid of any knowledge coming from the outer world, including the hypnotic descriptions of your birth and death, and of the past and future, and rediscover within yourself the infinite, inexhaustible passion and commitment to the Eternal Now.
