Haunted by the vastness of eternity

Reality has it so that our lives have a definitive beginning and end, starting with our birth and ending with or death. How can we transcend such limits? How can we remain after our bodies are gone? Immortality lies in memory. You can live as long as you are remembered. Memory, though, does not lie in the realm of reality, but in fantasy. It is personal and unique; no two people can share identical recollections. The secret to survival lies in fantasy.

"Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we are gone, and wonder who we were, how bravely we fought, how fiercely we loved? "
