Marcus’s Material Mortality Meditation (Aurelius – Meditations 5:4)
Show Notes

Synopsis: In an effort to break my “podcaster’s block,” I’m going to attempt to make five episodes this week, and I’m going to do my best to make them closer to 10 minutes than to 20. We’ll begin by returning to where we left off in Meditations, with a meditation on death which pairs nicely with a Rambam in the Moreh ha’Nevuchim.

- Aurelius, Meditations 5:4
- Rambam, Moreh ha’Nevuchim 3:12
- Bereishis 2:7; 3:19
