Hello the book LIFE LESSONS WITH TIM KREIDER In We Learn Nothing by Tim Kreider, many large themes of life are explored. Throughhis essays, Kreider blends his own experiences with commentary from other sources to develop aphilosophy on issues as diverse as heartbreak, laziness, death, haters and being true to yourself.
For this paper, you will need to identify one of the life lessons from Kreider’s text and
blend it with another source of your choice to develop your own philosophy on one of the bigissues. This is a synthesis paper so I am not looking for you to simply summarize or parrot
Kreider’s ideas on your life lesson but use his ideas as a jumping off point to bolster your own.
In fact, if you do not agree with Kreider, feel free to use him as a negative example to bolsteryour point of view.
It can be helpful to interpret synthesis as a conversation. Imagine you, Kreider and the
author of your other source are sitting down to talk about one of these life lessons. Each personshould have his or her viewpoint expressed and understood but ultimately the conversation willlead to a new understanding of the topic.
Make sure your essay has a thesis and features the organizational conventions of a synthesisessay that we will discuss in class.
The final essay should be 3-4 pages in APA format with an abstract and reference page.

Life Lessons



Life lesson bolster basing on the book ‘We learn nothing’ by Tim Kreider
In the book ‘We learn Nothing’ by Tim Kreider, many large themes of life are explored.
Kreider decides to turn his funny, brutally honest eye to the dark truths of the human condition
and asking big questions about human-sized problems. Death is one of the life experience he
focuses on when he asks, ‘What if you survive a brush with death and it doesn’t change?’ He
tries to deeply share personal experiences and readily confessing on his vices. In his life, he was
once stabbed in the throat but survived death and after the unsuccessful murder he confesses not
to be happy for an entire year (Kreider, 2013).
It is a life lesson experience that most of us have gone through sometime in our lives. I
believe no matter what the nature of the experience, it alters some people’s lives. For example,
according to the article by P.M.H. Atwater about ‘People are Dramatically Changed by NearDeath Experiences’ she also believes that experience of whatever nature changes lives such
alcoholics finding themselves unable to imbide and hardened criminals opt for a life of helping
others. Unsuccessful death experiences gives us some new life experiences. Kreider tries to make
us comprehend when he gives the old Ray Bradbury story where a man finds a supernatural
machine that empowered him to experience his own vicious demise again and again the same
number of times as he would have loved, for example, in detonating rockets, train impacts, and
race auto accidents. The man experienced all this situations until when he emerged flayed of all
his free-floating guilt and unconscious longing for death, forgiven and free, finally alive. This
story is a good example to show that the near death experiences dramatically changes people’s
The near-death experience is sometimes a hard phenomenon to define. This is because
near-death victims may report vivid experiences with some becoming altruistic, less



materialistic, and more loving. In 1975, a book ‘Life after Life’ was published by Raymond
Moody mainly focusing on the near-death experiences. According to his gathering, he also
believes near death experiences persons have some changes on people’s lives and this are when
he says that “people who have experienced the phenomenon of near-death-experience” act fairly
naïve allowing their openness which people abuse their trust”.
Life for such individuals can be considered to be sometimes towards a negative change.
For example, still in the book by Raymond moody, reports have shown that individuals with
near-death-experience have high divorce rates and problems. Most of this individuals always
deny the existence of aftereffects and the ones who admit only report to have had a brief
encounter regardless the situation they experienced as they believe it had little or no impact on
them. For example, Kreider claims not to be euphoric the whole time after his incidence but in
some way still admits and confesses that he was bothered by the happenings but did not want to
get down so much into it as he justifies to himself that it had already happened and alive again. It
can be seen to have had a dramatic impact in his life though not open t admitting that after the
experience his life went off the hook for a while.
There are other various personality changes people who have undergone near-deathexperiences face. For example, such people have the ability to live in the present rather than just
living in the past and the future. They believe the present is all we have because anything can
happen that makes us not sure about our tomorrow. Comparing this to Kreiders’ case, he believes
he was about to die a situation he wouldn’t want to relive. He says the moment of being stabbed
was not the worst but the experience of that he was about to die giving us a life lesson of living
on the present. It is an abiding sense of deep confidence. With untransformed self-due to some
experiences, our lives may be inherently be insecure and destabilizedbut with a near-death-



experience we have strong and lasting confidence. The sense of lasting confidence also gives a
strong sense of life’s purpose and the fact that life has a purpose. Life is connected to everything
including death that can also occur at any time when least expect. Near-death-experiences give
the sense that life as a whole and every happening around it has an inherent value with the
connectedness of things (Carter, 2010). What happens to people after a near-death-experience is
based on consciousness with the occurrence of change being in their psychological and
physiological makeup. There is life after near-death but with a dramatic change of the afterlife.
The largest percent of people with the experience of a near-death claim for having changes in
their lives after the happenings. The change cannot only be considered to just have a renewed
zest for life and a more spiritual outlook, the evidence in them can be considered to be
