Life and death have been subjects for analysis and reflection. Many studies and beliefs have tried to explain what those simple words mean, for us as individuals, and for people as a social construction that holds our lives. Those words…the most basic subjects within our consciousness, and we cannot yet explain them. Isn’t it true that one of the qualities that makes us humans is the possibility of acknowledging our own mortality? And what is mortality if not the dance between life and death? Who is the first person or what is the first situation that reveals to us our mortal condition? Would it be possible for us to not be conscious of death if we were born away from society? Then…is the acknowledgement of mortality a human condition or a social condition? Is it the same?
I guess the complexity of life and death is not in experience them, but in trying to explain them.
