You may consider this statement a bit obvious, but there is evidence to suggest that at some point our lives will end.


There are arguments to be made that we continue to exist in various forms or states of consciousness in perpetuity.

The three deaths focus on how we die, and perhaps more importantly, how we deal with death. 

The first type of death is the most obvious: Physical.

Our brain shuts down, our heart stops beating, and we cease to physically function. 

This death is the signal which most of our societies have agreed upon is the end of life.

The second type of death is less obvious: Mental

Dementia, Insanity, Brainwashing, Traumatic Brain Injury are just some of the causes of a mental death. 

These situations take our lives as easily and as quickly as our brain and heart stopping. 

If you have met someone who suffers from any of these issues, then you know that the life that they had before has ended. 

The third type of death is perhaps the trickiest to identify: Emotional 

When someone has given up on their lives it is sometimes difficult to see. Feelings of depression, uselessness, hopelessness, powerlessness, or the loss of any type of pleasure can result in emotional death. 

Perhaps the best way to describe this is to reference the classic image of a zombie. 

There is no future, no past; there is only getting through today. There is no joy, no pain; there is only the numb.

Emotional death is no less tragic than the others.

We of Iscantik hold that an Emotional Death is by far the most traumatic, and should concerns us at a far greater magnitude than the other two. It is with great hope that we will be able to give you the tools to combat an Emotional Death and to teach you how to assist others who may have already succumbed.
