Disney Heroism

    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.
