    Why is there this craving to persist as a ego after death? That seems hellacious to me.

    Oblivion. It's provable, and it doesn't fuck up my morals. I don't do fuck all for the promise of a reward in the sweet by and by.

    Behaving ethically is richly rewarding on its own. It allows people to love you, trust you, respect you.

    I think it comes from a notion of identity.

    If I can assert with all certainty that I exist and that my identity did not change despite all the changes that occurred with me, how can that identity perish with my body?

    I'm here, it's now, I'm having a great time and find humor everywhere.

    You cannot take it away because it's me. People are drawn to me, though I'm not a leader. I'm the head out alone guy. Hmmm could Jesus have been the same ?
