Welcome to another Tuesday with TED. Today we have philosopher Stephen Cave, author of the book Immortality, who asks a dark but compelling question: when did you first realize you were going to die? And even more interestingly: Why do we humans so often resist the inevitability of death?
In this fascinating talk, Cave explores four narratives — common across civilizations — that we tell ourselves “in order to help us manage the terror of death.” A thought provoking discussion you won’t want to miss.
What did you think of this talk, and which of the four stories do you tell yourself? Share your answers below.
Until next time,
