My essay aims to focus on the limit of death in the time of digital technologies from the well-established relationship between autobiography and the end of life. The juxtaposition of two literary examples of «archives of the non-archived» and the use of so¬cial networks allows, first, for the modernization of the idea that every life becomes a whole only through death. Second, however, the particular timelessness of the online dimension (eterniday) brings about a consequential transcendence of the limit of death, which modifies our atavistic relationship with memory, immortality and immutability. The essay aims, the¬refore, to highlight the dialectic between the limit and the limitless generated by digital tech¬nologies in reference to our relationship with mortality and the particular coincidence between memory and a past that never ceases to remain present.

Keywords: Digital death, digital memories, eternity, immortality, digital aesthetics
