I love the idea of a symbol to stimulate individual existential exploration and collective engagement surrounding death. That said, I worry that death taps into such differing and deeply held belief structures that agreement upon a universally embraced symbol to represent "death" itself may be hard to achieve. It seems it would require an accompanying narrative that bridges ideological divides.

One consideration would be to slightly reframe the effort to generating a universal symbol that represents human connection and compassion around our shared ending.
