Live together, die alone

Is how the saying goes, right? Its part of what makes everybody so afraid of death. The loneliness on the other side.
But what if it were not so....?If all the people you love, people who have been important to your life (and you to theirs) can just agree to sit down together, and move on. To the next stage. Then it would be so scary now would it? It would be like that vacation to Rishikesh, a long train journey through the countryside... No, it would then be something you looked at like a trip you know you have to undertake in the distance. The creators of the massively appreciated TV show Lost try to convince us that this can be the case, death need not be faced alone. They do make a convincing argument.

But at the back of your mind, you know this isnt true. Jack was right all along, even though Lost conspires to give us a happy ending that a TV series must have.
