“Man’s very insides – his self – are foreign to him. He doesn’t know ..why he was born, what he is doing on the planet, ..what he can expect.

– The Denial of Death (1973)

His own existence is incomprehensible to him, a miracle just like the rest of creation, closer to him, right near his pounding heart, but for that reason all the more strange.”

— Ernest Becker, ibid.
