No one knows anything about what lies ahead. It makes no difference since the same fate comes to the righteous and the wicked, to those who do good and the bad, to those who are religious and those who are not, to those who offer sacrifice and those who do not.
A good person is no better off than a bad person. One who takes an oath is no better off than one who does not. One fate comes to all alike, and this is as wrong as anything that happens in this world.
As long as people live, their minds are full of evil and madness, and suddenly they die. However, anyone who is alive in the world of the living has some hope; a live dog is better off than a dead lion.
Yes, living know they are going to die, but the dead know nothing. They have no further reward; they are completely forgotten. Their loves, their hates, their passions, all die with them. They will never again take part in anything that happens in this world.
I envy those who are dead and gone; they are better off than those who are still alive. But better off than either those who have never seen the injustice that goes on in this world.
