Is death even real?

Is death even real?

Since time immemorial.

A concept of life and death in flux, life preceeding death, death preceeding life has permeated the deepest depths of the (animal or human) soul.

It is a concept shared to variable extents across innummerable human cultures (perhaps even invariably).

Excepting, of course,our own modern concept of a culture.

I once used to ponder deeply, and sometimes worry about death. Now I don't.
I - the individual - may die, but I am part of It. And It goes on, with or without the individual I.
So, in a way, death is more a case of N/A.

the boys were out playing
and running about
laughing gaily all day
when suddenly a hush
fell dark on the group
shiv'ring cold in their boots
the specter of death
so cold and so grim
then caused the sun to dim
He said to them: "Bring me
the louse, the man of the
house, and tell him swiftly."
the man came fast running
fearful in mourning
"Is it at last my time?"
the specter, now grinning
said "Be not afraid:
I come in love, not rage."
the specter then reached out
his hand - laughing, the
man grasped him: "Tag! You're It!"
