'While we talk, the sun is getting older. It will explode in 4.5 billion years.'
Jean François Lyotard, 'Can Thought Go on Without a Body?'

'living on can mean a reprieve or an afterlife, "life after life" or life after death, more life as more than life, and better; the state of suspension in which it's over - and over again'
Jacques Derrida, 'Living On: Borderlines'

'Whether my life had been before that sleep
The Heaven which I imagine, or a Hell
Like this harsh world in which I wake to weep,
I know not'
Percy Bysshe Shelley, 'The Triumph of Life'
