That's just arguing semantics, since you need death in order to fear death, then the sentence, "Death makes life interesting" has many meanings. It could mean that Death itself(as in the death of others) makes life interesting. It could mean that the idea of death is interesting. Maybe that thinking about death and it's effects on others is interesting. So forth and so on. Therefore he wasn't wrong, you were both right.

I second that.

i like number three, reminds me of that book by anne rice (damnit can't remember what it was called ) would it be possible if u encountered someone who was also astral projecting and u laid a construct on them that kept them out of their body for awhile could u then enter it?

It's doubtful, because from what I've heard, when you astral project it's not your entire soul leaving your body, just an astral energy version of you that is still linked to you body.
