Here we're not discussing the theosophical concept of
the "second death", neither giving citations, putting
it in our own words, nor elaborating the idea with our
own speculations and extrapolations. Now we're taking
a different approach, playing free association with
the words "second death," seeing what the words bring
to mind, and much as we'd interpret a dream, seeing
what we come up with from our own unconscious. That's
fine, but it's inaccurate to say, when doing it, that
we're taking about what the theosophical idea of the
"second death" means. What we're doing is best described
as free association using the words "second death",
something quite different.
