Death is only perceived as an end by the fractured consciousness of the separated point of view of the assemblage point (or its steward, the ego).
In truth, death and creation are as much part of the same eternal consciousness as the light and the burning are part of the flame. The flame is only possible if it is ending and starting in the same movement. There is no separation between the beginning and the end in the continuous self-consuming dance of the flame.
So it is for the Nahual resolved the dichotomy of life and death. They have both become simply part of the eternal moment.
The Nahual has already died, and exists beyond life and death.
