I heard a saying the other day that everyone dies two times.
You die the first time when you body dies.
You die the second time when the last person who remembers you dies.
Do you believe in two lifetimes or do you think we only die once?
Are you only your body and merely a memory in others?
Is the human need to be remembered in death what drives people to create buildings — giant headstones in the form of monuments — and to create physical things beyond children that will be preserved and protected by those who never knew the person but appreciate the aftereffects of the written work of Art, the musical composition or the stone sculpture?
If memory isn’t everlasting and is bound by the body, is the easiest way to achieve immortality through the Arts and architecture?
