Silence, space, nothing
You know, it's interesting we dismiss space and silence as foreign, yet they’re more intrinsic to our being than matter and sound. Just as space dominates the external, so too are we more space than anything else. Therefore, to acknowledge ourselves wholly, we must be aware of this; to see ourselves within the abyss, and the abyss within us. As a result, the understanding of death will alter, as death is an expression of silence and space, and therefore, you are alive in those two fundamental forces. I know my loved ones who have died are right here with me, in silence, in nothingness, internally and externally between the stars.
