“Only a man who lives not in time but in the present is happy. For life in the present there is no death. Death is not an event in life. It is not a fact of the world. If by eternity is understood not infinite temporal duration but non-temporality, then it can be said that a man lives eternally if he lives in the present.”
Zat, this is beautiful and so well-written and was a joy to read, and I especially love the quotes you pull from Wittgenstein and those who knew him. Thanks!
