2/5/15 Section H01 Group 3
In our group discussion today, we continued talking about the fear of death, dying, and oblivion. We came to a general consensus that the act of dying is more fearful than actually dying, and that eternity is more scary than dying is. We then drifted into a brief conversation about what types of death are more scary and what types are more peaceful (such as being set on fire, which sounds horrifying and excruciating, as opposed to drowning, which is actually peaceful). We talked about the Egg Theory, which is that everyone has the same soul. When you die, you are reincarnated repeatedly until every person that has ever lived has had a turn, of sorts. In short, everyone is the same soul. We changed topics then and talked about free will, and how much of what we do is a conscious choice, as opposed to a subconscious choice.
