Would Life Be Meaningless Without Death?

The other day, I read several articles raging against the commonly repeated notion that ultimately it is death that gives our life meaning. Some of the articles were fairly good while others were mostly pseudo-philosphical nosense. None were anywhere near as succinct as the New U-Station from Borderlands 2.

If any idiot ever tells you that life would be meaningless without death, Hyperion recommends killing them.
