Questions from the audience #3

In today's stats i found this question from someone in Houston, Texas:

explain the meaning of death

Well, there are several options. One could argue death has no meaning, but one could also argue death is the meaning of life (the universe and everything). So, in effect, the question is unanswerable. Moreover, even if death has a specific meaning, there is no way in knowing this meaning, since the observer - the person who has experienced death - is death.
Does death in general have meaning? Does it serve a purpose of plan? Well, considering the extreme variability of causes, it is harldy possible to find order in death. One can die in a car accident, in a plane, on the battlefield, in the house, outside of the house, in the hospital, etc. etc. Death seems to be random and chaotic. No, it has no meaning.
