"Death", as with all things capable of being understood, is a product of the intellect. Were they not a product of the intellect, you would not have the ability to even recognize them, let alone understand them. Thus, anything you can think about is capable of being understood by the intellect, and nothing else.
Whether these notions are the reality experienced, is a different story.
>>16939947 Life isn't the opposite of death. Birth is the opposite of death. Life is eternal.
Could you understand birth using only the intellect? What do you mean by 'understand'? You can intellectualise any experience, run it as a chain of thoughts and ideas which all might be entirely logical, and yet strip away the essence of the event. We can't understand feelings, or states of consciousness, with words and thoughts. They are different currencies, apples and oranges.
The only way to truly understand death is to die and come back to the land of the living. For this, drowning works best in my opinion. Also to stay on subject, logic then ceases to be applicable. Everything you previously thought about death becomes null and void. So no. You cannot use logic to understand death, especially if you have never died and come back.
