YOLO is a pop-culture reference made famous in a song by a rapper named Drake, it stands for “You only live once”. I thought it’d be a clever way to title this talk which will examine eastern and western philosophy in regard to death. One of the major departure points between both sides is the concept of reincarnation and whether one’s soul experiences multiple lives.
