To live meaningful lives we must die
Verbatim from the immortal Cylon 6 from the TV-Series Battlestar Galactica -
In our civil war, we've seen death. We watched our people die. Gone forever. As terrible as it was, beyond the reach of the Resurrection Ships, something began to change. We could feel a sense of time. As if each moment held its own significance. We began to realize that for our existence to hold any value it must end.
To live meaningful lives we must die, and not return. The one human flaw, that you spend your lifetimes distressing over - mortality - is the one thing...well, it's the one thing that makes you whole.
A superb insight -
Death gives purpose to our Life!
what separates man from machine ... a sense of time.
D says that the fact that each of us is different - unlike cylons - is a big difference as well .
. I agree .
