Jobs, like Walt Disney, was a hero, for heroes triumph over gratuitousness: whether dying or not, a hero is a hero for fulfilling a task, for "connecting the dots".
Heroes don't beat death, but its definitiveness.
The transcendence of heroism is to render gratuitousness worse
than death :
to show that if death is not
the worst of all things,
it cannot be final.
Heroism is the simultaneous assertion of eternity and meaningfulness.
