Gould: Η Ζωή Μετά

"I have had all my life a tremendously strong sense that, indeed, there is a hereafter. […] On the other hand, I don’t have any objective images to build around my notion of a hereafter, and I recognize that it’s a great temptation to formulate a comforting theory of eternal life, so as to reconcile one’s self to the inevitability of death. But I’d like to think that’s not what I’m doing; I’d like to think that I’m not employing it as a deliberate self-reassuring process. For me, it intuitively seems right; I’ve never had to work at convincing myself about the likelihood of a life hereafter. It is simply something that appears to me infinitely more plausible than its opposite, which would be oblivion.”
