Transcendental override causes us as humans to have a lack of common sense, human compassion, and evidence of one's self senses are all gone because of the belief that everything is the command of god and you must obey the commands to reach the afterlife divinity. In a section of The Meaning of Life entitled "Death" the Pythons hammer a nail right through this traditional idea of a transcendental soul that travels after death a transcendental place for eternal bliss. They depict Heaven a Vegas-style dinner-theater where "it's nice and warm and everyone looks smart and wears a tie." With this, the Pythons suggest that the strive and struggle for a transcendental death is ridiculous and hardly worth striving for. As the Buddha argues repeatedly, belief in a soul or a God or anything eternal and otherworldly actually interferes with our more immediate and pressing responsibilities to each other as human beings.
