Death is an enlightening start (of course don't try to pinpoint start with a time point), instead of a frightening end.
Here is the proof.
Death in medical term is brain dead. When your brain dies, your consciousness vanishes along with the "self". Self creates the illusion of "I" your identity which makes you think that you are not part of the universe. At sub-atomic level everything is built upon electrons, up and down quarks (matter = energy). So, when the mind shuts down, and the self is gone.. you are back to your roots, i.e., you are truly part of the universe - back home.. Getting back home is always exciting isn't it? So, how can it be frightening?

Would you be happier if you spent more time discussing the state of the world and the meaning of life — and less time talking about the weather?
