In this brief summary, the author discusses the paradoxes in a suicide note & what religious discourse & suicide notes have in common. For example, if one believes in the sacredness of nature, an object belongs to our world & to the other at the same time, immanence & transcendency coexist in the same place. For those who read a suicide note, it is a piece of paper covered with material signs, but it is also a message from someone speaking beyond death. (GW)
