[A] Death is inevitable and destroys life
See also Death.
[B] Aim of life lies at its end, i.e. death or beyond
(Or you can reach the aim of life only at/after death.)
- A or Death
- Make sure you understand definitions: Purpose vs. goal
- Any rational activity assumes a goal/aspiration justifying the activity (see Importance of the end)
- The goal or result of any rational activity lies after its end
(see The end of life)
- See also Death: practical #18 & #19.
[C] Anything beyond life belongs to belief
See more in The end of life and belief.
Sheer void as a belief?
[D] The aim of the entire (rational) life has something to do with beliefs
[E] Life without beliefs is irrational
Life without a goal is irrational. But the goal lies at the end/death that cannot be understood except via beliefs. Therefore, life without belief is irrational too.
Yet another way of showing it:
So Death is the logico-empirical link between Belief and Goal of Life.
And one more way to see it:
- Goal => Rationality (see [B])
- Rational Life => Goal of Life => (After) Death => Belief (see [B], [C], and [D])
