There are different types of deaths, and death is one. A person dies as a child, even before he is born; stillborn. So, he dies before he is born. What is the wisdom? leave young; happy with his full physical and psychological strength; Passing without permission like a flash of lightning. he may be old, his head is gray; Diseases eat him relentlessly, he looks forward to death, and then does not die; Except after a long time, life wants him to remain suspended between the jaws of death for eternity.

Also, there are those who refuse to wait until the end of their monotonous appointment with death, they may find it distant and difficult. At that time, he decides to shorten the path and presents the fate of his death to spite death and life together. He chooses what sociologists call voluntary death or suicide, whose interpretation among philosophers differed, between those who considered it courage and a heroic stance, while a second class called it cowardice and its owner a coward.

Death is one. However, the levels of its impact and the degrees of impact of its shock vary, according to its inclusion of the element of surprise and suddenness, or it is manifested as a mere incident that came according to a system of temporal structure governed by the sequences of social time positions. Why is the crowd so surprised, and so horrified, at the death of a young man as compared to an old one? The ringing of surprise increases, if that young man dies without a monotonous explanation, as a result of a fatal accident by way of acting. Here, the reason for astonishment is multiplied because the deceased is in the prime of his life, meaning that we do not assume his death at the present time, as long as he should respect the chapters and scenes of life in full, so that death seems normal and palatable, and then he did not comply within the context of this emergency with the law of news and media, meaning the necessity of an introduction to this death, According to the societal estimation, it requires a period of preparatory time in order for the departure to be domesticated by the circle of neighborhoods surrounding the deceased.

Accidental death is more merciful to its owner compared to that monotonous, because the latter, or typical death, implicitly regurgitates all the burden of life’s troubles, its whims, failures, and setbacks.

So, in order for the strangeness of death not to increase in a particular context, two conditions should be taken into account:

First: its forced compliance with the process of the laws of time represented in the transition through the sequence of life stages, here death takes perhaps a continuous link, perhaps not provoking much compared to early death: Why did this child die? What is the fault of this young man or woman who left us early? The context of death contrasts completely with the juvenile stage and has to take a direct direction towards old age and middle age.

Secondly, the necessity of presenting death with initial signs, so that the effects of departure become familiar.

a person dies, people provoke secondary questions in comparison with a subsequent question; It remains lurking among the mysteries of what is going on and reflects the reality of the essence of the various incomings. Frequently asked by the living in light of the disappearance of the deceased: When did he die? How old was he when he died? The cause of his death? The effects of his death on his family? Controversies that constitute only an introduction, an exclusion or an interpretation of all existential problems focused on the critical question: Why does death occur? People begin to ask: What are the reasons for our death? What is life compared to its second face? Despite this, the questions dissolve and fade as soon as the deceased is buried, and the wonderers are again immersed in the vortex of life according to its minor questions, and a sample of questions about what death is will not be raised again. Even if momentarily, except when a new departure date strikes.


Accidental death is more merciful to its owner compared to that monotonous, because the latter, or typical death, implicitly regurgitates all the burden of life’s troubles, its whims, failures, and setbacks. On the other hand, he shows all the cruelty to the psyche of the family of the deceased and those who knew him, then the horror of what happened increases, if the deceased drew an exceptional life for the short period of his passage over this earth, crystallizing his identity with momentum, as if he had been whispering to himself daily: “We do not live life twice, Therefore, one life is not enough for me, and I must enrich it every moment.”

The shorter the life period, the greater the enormity of the loss of death, so that its context seems completely inconsistent and involves a lot of injustice and imbalance. A person should not die young, while the greater the age, the death became, according to the first impressions, a palatable matter that did not bring great injustice.

The essence of death, contingent and mysterious in all respects. Science is still, a goal now, marked by shortcomings before the moment of death, and then after death, compared to the achievements it has achieved with regard to the various aspects of birth, according to which human intervention has become clear in an effective manner on several levels, so the data is far from chance.

The same quest was not achieved, when turning to the destination of deciphering life after death, but we do not really know what will end up within this scope in the future of scientific developments. The more the scope of humanitarian interventions expands, and then the authority to possess the causes of knowledge becomes more and more entrenched, the more vague indicators recede.

In general, whether a person is defeated in the face of an accidental death or another to some extent monotonous, his fate will eventually experience a completely different direction, within which it is impossible to bet on direct projections between the first and the second world, as long as the links are non-existent, and the only known / unknown link that can be built lies in this The game between existence and nothingness, as embodied by death.

An endless game of struggle between life and death, each of them wants to monopolize as much space as possible at the expense of the other. There are victories for life that are met by defeats for death, or vice versa, without the possibility of adopting the situation as a final nature, because the second party is ready to regain its prestige in the event of defeat, or to consolidate its authority when it is victorious.

In general, as a result of all the details that death sends, as a result of it being an emergency or monotonous event, the meaning of the event will not depart from the context of a ready wait for a meeting without an appointment, as you may have to wait; Because you have to wait, and the essence of this appointment lies in surprise.

Let’s imagine, then, the value of irony, when a person realizes that the meaning of his entire life lies in his anticipation of a surprise called death, present in absence and absent in presence.
