the infinite

“Working with numbers was another way of approaching the infinite. I think of that work as the precursor for what we have been talking about: kings, God and immortality. Elgaland-Vargaland has abolished death, something that used to be the monopoly of religion. Just think of what a success religion has been! I want to be a part of something that makes death a smaller problem than what it is, so that it will not constrain our lives as much. A promise. It's very much the opposite position to that of the monk, who abolishes death by living on the other side from the very beginning. I find that so destructive. You should not give up your worldly existence, you should let it flower. Life is not payment against a debt.” – Leif Elggren
