No matter who you are, how much money you have, or how many initials you have after your name, there is one unavoidable fact you have to face. You will die. But, paradoxically, how we deal with that fact has great impact on our lives. This series looks at the final curtain through several vantage points, including the range of beliefs in life after death held around the world, human creativity that stems from the inevitability of death, and the role of death in nature.
