Death has no duration. The deceased is not dead for a week or three months or 100 years until he returns. Death is an edge without thickness. It is a membrane of infinite fineness. It separates life from life and yet is not materially existent. The deceased returns at the moment of his death. The time of his return can be tomorrow or next week or in 100 years. Or 1000 years in the past. The time exists only in time and space. It exists only among the living. In death, everything is too equal. Therefore, in death there is no waiting. Every moment is the one moment there. Death itself is the moment that encompasses all time and space.
