Since life began we have been trying to understand death. What happens at death? Is there a life afterwards? Is death programmed into what we are? In her upcoming book and accompanying documentary, Death Makes Life Possible, this week’s guest, Marilyn Schlitz, of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, uses her decades of research on the mysteries of consciousness to explore the many cosmologies of death, dying and the afterlife. In this show, host Philip Mereton and Marilyn talk about not only whether understanding death makes for a fuller life, but also whether death is really inevitable.
