I beg to differ. It is not the end but rather the end of us as individual conscious beings. Our constituent parts, our dna, our compressed energy if you like become a part of the whole again and "return to the mother".

> Oh, sure, death is THE end, there's no doubt about it! I've never said that one's life would continue after one's death.
