Could it simply not be?
Imagine if you will, that life on Earth is a single organism that has existed for millions of years and we are a part of it.
The Internet, to give an example, is now a part of our biology, facilitating the sending and receiving of chemical signals to each other. The time lag, inconsequential to the organism.
From that viewpoint, could it be said that we even ever die? Or were really ever born?
