Yom Kippur Meditation

Here's (what I am told is) a Yom Kippur meditation I just stumbled across:

If some messenger were to come to us with the offer that death should be overturned, but with the one inseparable condition, that birth should also cease; if the existing generation were given the chance to live forever, but on the clear understanding that never again would there be a child, or a youth, or first love, never again new persons with new hopes, new ideas, new achievements; ourselves for always and never any others—could the answer be in doubt?
  No. I'd say no doubt.

To quote the Crank's late beautiful girlfriend, her take on the matter was, "Nobody's getting out of here alive."
