The Paradox of Death by Ashley Marie Bergner Death – the dark destiny that awaits all mankind, a fate we cannot escape. Death – a specter clothed in black drifting between two dimensions always present but never seen. Death – a shadow stretching across the ages that has already claimed the past and will soon claim the present. Death – the final act of every life’s drama, both an ending and a beginning. Death – a corridor leading from one world to the next, a passageway to eternity. Death – the liberating paradox that frees us to live  life immortal.
