Death is merely a part of life, as we all return to our elements; being earth, plant, water and spirit, of which we are made. All things gain sustenance from the good earth. The substance of the earth is passed into plants with the aid of water, and from thence into animals, and from both plant and animals upon which we feed, and so into man. His spirit, born of pure energy of the ethers that surround us, sustains his core which is his spirit, which is, yet it cannot be found. Such energies live forever as they have always done, and cannot be destroyed; neither can they die. So the follower of reason has no fear of death.
