It's called Sam.

I believe that when I die I shall rot, and nothing of my ego will
survive.  I am not young, and I love life.  But I should scorn to
shiver with terror at the thought of annihilation.  Happiness is none
the less true happiness because it must come to an end, nor do thought
and love lose their value because they are not everlasting.
