Is there a rational response to the idea that my death is the ultimate evil? I'm asking just because I can't think of useful response, assuming my death is necessary -- inescapable, and most philosophers would I think agree that all men are mortal. Perhaps just a lack of imagination, but I'd like to know if anyone answers this question.
By "ultimate evil" I mean something that cannot be mitigated, made less evil, through life or religion or some combination of them. However, I don't think my death is irredeemable, the "ultimate evil", so I'd be interested in any philosopher who claims it is.
I'm interested in an answer from any robust moral standpoint except relativism, but especially atheist ones, whether or not I'm agnostic.
