The Possibility of a Perverse Universe

September 2, 1968, age 22

It seem logical to me that when people die, that is it.  They just cease.  But logic can be faulty.  In the light of new evidence, logicians, like scientists, may change their views.  There is no proof, at any rate, that the universe is logical.  It may be perverse.  It is almost as logical to suppose that there is life after death as to suppose there is not.  I would like to think (I think) that some part of us continues on because I don't like the idea of ceasing.  Yet, what if life after death is hell?  Wouldn't it then be better to just cease?
