Research

Studies have found that people living in awareness of their own mortality live more vibrant lives. Regardless of how much time is left, and however very contradictory this might feel, death brings aliveness; life becomes more visible, suddenly filled with sensations and beauty somehow missed before.
 
NoEnds rest its approach in ancient philosophy, perhaps most well represented by the symbol of yin and yang ( Chinese: 陰陽 yīnyáng, lit. “bright-black”, “positive-negative”). NoEnds unites this what seemingly ununited and most contradictory and allows for the powerful and complementary combination of life and death to exists next to each other. In that sense, NoEnds is in equal measures about dying as it is about living. On one side we provide the means to leave one’s legacy for generations to come and on the other, we aim to support our users in living a more purpose-driven life, however much time there is left.
