- See main: Life terminology reform
The defunct term “die”, or “died” or “death”, in respect to terminology reform , has few historical alternative physico-chemically neutral term synonym usage employments; the following are known:
- Death → Atomic disaggregation (Leucippus, 460BC)
- Death → Separation of elements (Empedocles, 450BC; Anaxagoras, 455BC)
- Die → Cease to exist (Thomas Jefferson, 1775) 
- Dead → Inanimate (Nietzsche (1878); per Harvey (1908) translation)
- Death → Dissolution from other units (Johannes Barandun, 1910) 
- Death → Motion cessation (Johannes Barandun, 1910) 
- Die → Dis-integrate (Paul Aebersold, 1949)
The following are related quotes:
- “There is neither birth nor death for any mortal, but only a combination and separation of that which was combined, and this is what amongst laymen they call ‘birth’ and ‘death’. Only infants or short-sighted persons imagine any thing is ‘born’ which did not exist before, or that any thing can ‘die’ or parish totally.”
- “What good did it do Epicurus to maintain that there is no providence; or Empedocles to teach atheism (see: atheism professor); or Socrates to swear by the dog, and the goose, and the plane-tree, and Aesculapius struck by lightning, and the demons whom he invoked? And why did he willingly die? What reward, or of what kind, did he expect to receive after death?”

- “We all have to die [de-exist] sometime. We ‘become’, as Heraclitus famously said, we ‘unbecome’. Such is the nature of the ‘change’ of the dynamics of the universe.”

But, by the god that made me, I will cease to exist before I yield to a connection on such terms as the British Parliament propose; and in this, I think I speak the sentiments of America.” (29 Nov 1775) (Ѻ)
