The Book of Immortality, Adam Goffner


Every single day around 175K people die worldwide. It can happen at anytime, and yet exposure to death profoundly bothers our mind precisely because we can’t understand it. Spiritual immortality is a narrative of numberless incarnations, from eternal santification to damnation to reincarnation. Goffner travels the world to interview those whose lives are shaped by a belief in immortality. Longevity science, genetics, symbolic representation, the nature of belief, and how the stories we have and tell about immortality corresponds with the meaning of death.
