“Death gives meaning to our lives. It gives importance and value to time. Time would become meaningless if there were too much of it.”
Ray Kurzweil

“The purposeful destruction of information is the essence of intelligent work.”
Ray Kurzweil, The Age of Spiritual Machines: When Computers Exceed Human Intelligence

“Death is a great tragedy…a profound loss…I don’t accept it…I think people are kidding themselves when they say they are comfortable with death.”
Ray Kurzweil
