First of all - Steve - even though you don't like coffee, I really like to read you
. You make really great articles, thanks for them.
And now, about polarization, love, and fear.
I don't believe in something after death. I am who I am, and I think I am mainly my thoughts, which are heavily dependend on my brain, which is physicall and won't work very well after they bury my. But.. it does not mean I am afraid of my death. You may say it's some kind of lack of my intelligence not to care about my existance - I don't say it's not true but sure it's not true that love is on the other side. I don't fear my death (that will make me really dead, completly dead, dead forever), because I'm just a part of human beeing on the earth. Evolution is working, and after 1000 years they won't be really sorry for my absence.
And this may be called some kind of love, to other people. If you really care about other people, not just yourself, you care more about civilisation existance than just your existance. Especially when you know, that those young people (even if this is really hard to believe and accept) may be just smarter than you (not you exactly, but statistically). So, believing that my life will end some day for good, does not mean that I have to fear. It's also not against love.
Life with believe that some day you'll be gone just motivate to work harder, to leave something for the others. Work for some greater good. Without fear of death - because when it happens, I won't be there anyway.
PS. English is not my first language so I'm sorry for all mistakes.
