Quote of the Day (Ludwig Wittgenstein)

Quote of the Day (Ludwig Wittgenstein) June 2, 2012

“Death is not an event in life: we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present. Our life has no end in the way in which our visual field has no limits.”

— Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, 6.4311

[Quoted in Stephen Cave, Immortality: The Quest to Live Forever and How It Drives Civilization, p.275, where he adds, “…we can never be aware of [life] having an end – we can never know anything but life”]
