>Why did Gilgamesh think that eternal life would erase the memories of death
>and make him happy?
Belittled in death, my story retold for many years retells the tale of
those who retold without understanding. Awestruck by creation, seeing clearly
deaths door inviting challenges to our meaning in life. The beauty of Uruk
proves The King of Uruk knew "meaning makes motivation". Utnapishtim
taught me of fruit from the tree of life, a gift of freedom from his God's
magnificent creation. In vain and vanity, I wanted this for my people.
They would not have it. For the twenty-first century, I return to
explain this "freedom", the eighth wonder of the world. Freedom
to choose, freedom to think, freedom to live, again. I cannot erase
the memory of death in this world. This fruit from the tree of life is freedom
so awesome, look forward in awe and wonder to how magnificently we
are made and live forever.
