VAT: Crying at bookends of life

At birth, the moment one becomes finite and no longer one with everything, newborns cry while everyone else is deaf to their cries and joyous. At death, the dying (who are about to become one with everything) die without a whimper while everyone about them cries. Maybe newborns and the dying, whom everyone views as understanding little at their stage of life, truly know something to which the rest of us are oblivious.
