Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

Asclepius – Hermes Trismegistus

We must talk now about the immortal and the mortal, for anticipation and fear of death torture the many who do not know the true account of it.  Death results from the disintegration of a body worn out with work, after the time has passed when the body's members fit into a single mechanism with vital functions.  The body dies in fact, when it can no longer support a person's vital processes.  This is death then, the body's disintegration and the extinction of bodily consciousness.

Worrying about it is pointless.

The source of the experience
