Traditionally, These Have Been Religious In Character, Such As The Belief In Everlasting Life After Death, In The West, And The Belief In Reincarnation, In The East. However, Today, It Is Money That Provides The Primary Immortality Symbol. It Is Our Obsession For Money That Is Driving Humanity To Extinction. For When We Do Not Face Our Fears With Full Consciousness And Intelligence, These Fears Will Eventually Come Along To Haunt Us.]
