Death: It’s inevitable, it’s hurtful and sometimes it’s desired. The notion of death that we all nurture is one in which our breathing chokes and our heart stops beating. However, with the progress of science in today’s day and age, the very concept of death has been redefined. Doctors no longer associate death with the cessation of breath and failure of the heart. Death is now anything that prevents you from feeling alive. More particularly, it is associated with the destruction of the brain stem.
