The act of dying; the state of being dead; termination or extinction. Ceasing to exist. Opposite to life. The act or the process of ceasing to live.
Also, a personification of the destroyer of life, represented as a skeleton holding a scythe.
Dying, the halting of all life functions, is the great unknown that neither science nor religion has ever been able to penetrate.
Because it is both unknown and inescapable, death has always been an object of fascination and fear. Death is evaded, ignored, and denied by our modern, youth-worshipping, progress-oriented society. It is almost as if we have taken on death as just another disease to be defeated. But the fact is that death is inevitable. We will all die; it is only a matter of time. Death is as much part of human existence, of human growth and development, as being born. It is one of the few things in life we can count on; that we can be assured will occur. It is not an enemy to be conquered or a prison to be escaped. It is an integral part of our lives, giving meaning to our existence.

Occultopedia is the genuine article, the original and the best internet index of the extraordinary and uncanny, shamelessly copied by many, but never equaled. Online since 1995 — at first in a free web space provider (Tripod.com), and in 1997 finally with its own domain name and hosting — Occultopedia still is the principal online resource for those looking for the unexplained, the curious and the unusual.
