The Love of Souls by Jean Delville (1867-1953). Via decadenthandbook
On the one hand, the evidence for continuity of personality is, in my opinion, very strong; thousands of mediumistic communications attest to it, and I find many of these communications persuasive. On the other hand, who wants to survive as a bundle of quirks and worries and petty grudges? Wouldn't it be hell to be trapped with your chattering "ego-mind" forever? Sweet oblivion would be preferable.
From the wheat and the chaff, an excellent blog post from Michael Prescott.
