The Final Frontier

 

            There are no… “Final Frontiers”, for a frontier is the boundary between the known and the unknown. We shall never “know” it all in this life. “Final” is, therefore, an inappropriate adjective. No “dead-end” can ever be a “frontier”, therefore death is not a boundary through which we may someday pass & then return with a wealth of information, but rather one at which we must stop. It is a limit – a… “boundary” across which is known but through which we may not pass.
