Can creativity beat death? New study suggests creatives worry less about dying — ScienceDaily

I find this encouraging, especially at a time when, it seems to me, the forces of destruction are in ascendance.  Those of us who seek to build:  families, buildings, songs… anything; we fear death less.  My view has always been, when we have made the best contribution we can, then we can let go and relax.  Satisfied with my work.  Clearly, I’m not Bob Dylan, but I am happy to achieve.

What about you, are you happy with your achievements?

Creative people, such as newly-announced Nobel Prize for Literature winner Bob Dylan, are often thought to be motivated by the desire to leave an enduring cultural legacy. Through their creative work, creatives such as Leonard Cohen and David Bowie continue to live on in our culture even after passing away.
