Thanatology - Deepstash

Thanatology

the study of death—delves into matters as diverse as the cultural anthropology of the notion of soul, the burial rites and practices of early civilizations, the location of cemeteries in the Middle Ages, and the conceptual difficulties involved in defining death in an individual whose brain is irreversibly dead but whose respiration and heartbeat are kept going by artificial means. It encompasses the biological study of programmed cell death, the understanding care of the dying.

Woodstock - the most famous rock festival

The Woodstock Music and Art Fair of 1969 was organized by inexperienced promoters who still managed to get performers like Jimi Hendrix, Santana, and Joe Cocker.

There were problems from the start: both Woodstock and Wallkill would not stage it. Then farmer Max Yasgur made his land available for the festival. Only a few tickets were sold, but over 400,000 showed up and mostly entered without paying. It rained, but the audience bonded - probably because they consumed marijuana and psychedelics.

Stoicism

Stoicism, a school of thought that flourished in Greek and Roman antiquity. It was one of the loftiest and most sublime philosophies in the record of Western civilization. In urging participation in human affairs, Stoics have always believed that the goal of all inquiry is to provide a mode of conduct characterized by tranquillity of mind and certainty of moral worth.
