The Burning Library is a popular life extensionist analogy to compare the destruction of wisdom, knowledge and experiences such as the Great Library of Alexandria,[1] to that of the knowledge lost when a human being dies.

Every time a human being dies, a library burns. It's a horrible tragedy. - Anders Sandberg[2]
