Death ultimately, and irreversibly, separates the dead from the living. It is the
definitive "parting of the ways." Where the analogy breaks down, of course, is that
, unlike the brave knight or soldier who goes off to face the enemy alone, a
person who dies, in point of logic, cannot "come through the encounter
unscathed" and be joyfully reunited with those he left behind. Unlike a knight or
soldier in battle, who may hope to see his loved ones again, a person who has
died no longer exists.

Why is death so scary? Maybe it's just the thought of being dead that scary. It's
that lifeless, end of the road feeling. Knowing it's the end of YOUR road, the big
one way, toe tag mania. Ah, to go peacefully in my sleep, to the great beyond like
my grandfather, not screaming like his passengers. Beyond what, a better place?
I already have a happy place I retreat to, is it better than that? What's being dead
as a doornail? Was a doornail ever not dead? Dead wrong, I always thought
wrong ...

Traditionally, as Bazelmans, Fowler and Thomas all note, the body ofthe dead
hasbeen assumedto indexthe single living individual whose remains are
examined. Treatment ofthe dead body by apast society washeld to be analogous
tothe treatment accorded tothat individual in life, and to represent the “fossilized
terminal status” (Peebles 1971:69) of an individual. For this reason, the work of
all authors in this section is of Part 1: Bodies, Selves and Individuals Introduction

exactly considered a compliment. In fact, if I was in the Stockman's Club bar in
Pinedale, Wyoming, I would hit you for calling me that. And you would
understand why, and I would be right. I am not now and I have never been an
intellectual. What I am is an avid front-row attendee at the best entertainment

It set me to thinking when Jerry died. It set a lot of us to thinking, even those who
normally don't, and even a few who no longer can. I saw some of my Deadhead
friends who hadn't had a thought in years suddenly entertain one, handling ideas
like those gorillas handled that Samsonite luggage on the old TV commercial (
poor Samson, after Delilah and that haircut, and the jawbone and all those
Philistines, now he's reduced to a proper adjective for ugly plastic luggage, but I
digress1).

... suspicion of metaphysics and representational thinking, even though some
postmodernists might view Zen as an example of eastern logocentri- cism.
Derrida, for instance, calls metaphysics "white mythology," a kind of Indo-
European variety, because it reflects western culture and the impossibility of such
an endeavor. Tragically, from the perspective of Derrida, "white mythology" is like
a metaphor that embodies its own demise: Metaphor, then always carries its
death within itself.

When thinking impregnates the mind, thoughts are born and ideas are formed.
Man's soul now finds a medium to express itself through various arts. Whatever
art form man chooses as the outlet for his thinking, it is his choice. The realization
of his artistry will be the tangible proof that he is in fact thinking. For his artistry to
be manifested into reality, he first has to be thinking. A man who is not thinking is
dead. A dead man creates neither thoughts nor tangible objects. Truly, there are
a lot ...
