Why Do We Have To Die?

Bernadette Roberts
"Perhaps the best explanation for death is summed up in the words “See God and die”, which means the sheer brilliance of God overwhelms the capacity to see and be in this world anymore. If earthly and heavenly life were identical there would be no reason or explanation for death, certainly it would be a loss and not a gain for man. The only purpose for death, then, is because heaven (Beatific Vision) is incompatible with life in this world."
