  myth> DEATH IS AN ORPHAN
        NO GODLY FIGURES CLAIMS TO BE
  THE PARENTS OF DEATH
  FORTUNATELY MERCY MADE DEATH INVISIBLE and
  ITS TOUCH IS FOR THE MOST PART INSENSIBLE
  DEATH WAS ALSO RENDERED
  OMNIPRESENT AND INEVITABLE
  note NO TEMPLES WERE BUILT FOR DEATH
       nor for THANATOS
  THANATOS is linked with HADES or
  the UNDERWORLD and the twins HYPNOS and THANATOS or
  MORS WHO STAND FOR SLEEP and DEATH
  therefore SLEEP and DEATH incorporate ideas of
  SOMNOLENCE  AMNESIA  OBLIVION  HYPNOSIS
  perhaps SLEEP IS A REVERSIBLE
  FORM OF OBLIVION in contrast to
  DEATH implying ETERNAL SLEEP as in
  " PUT TO SLEEP " by THANATOS
  also note how TO PUT TO DEATH or
  END or KILL often brings ideas of
  CANCEL  HALT  STOP  EXECUTE  LIQUIDATE

  THANATOS is often SHOWN AS A HEALER or
  REMOVER OF PAIN
  note DEATH CAN BE SEEN AS RELIEF FROM SUFFERING
       as when people "PUT TO SLEEP" THEIR DOGS

       FOCUS FOR AN OBSESSION or MANIA or PHOBIA
