Ethereal Void

Ebert's getting philosophical lately. Shakespeare, SETI, existentialism, Herzog, Google, Prospero, Socrates, fractals, yikes.

and this, in the comments:


"With my own life ending, I've come to terms. Chaz only told me last October that when I had that unexpected bleeding some days after my first surgery in 2006, I was actually thought to be dead in the ER. It happened while I was still in the hospital, and cold-headed surgeons brought me back and saved me. So I have to look at it this way: Unlike most people, I have been dead, and here I am back again, but if I weren't, that would have been, from my own point of view, and in terms of my own consciousness of self, a non-event. I'm very happy to be alive, yes indeed, but in terms of your question, I can only quote "Gates of Heaven," where the owner of a dead pet says: "Death is for the living and not for the dead so much."


EBERT WAS DEAD.
