This chapter examines Karl Jaspers' assertions about the eternal aspect of one's Existenz in terms of non-temporal duration within the framework of the existential interpretation of deathlessness. It analyses Jaspers' concept of eternity as non-temporality/timelessness by utilising a metaphor that is similar to Plotinus's, Boethius's and Saint Augustine's. The chapter argues that Jaspers' claim about regarding the eternal dimension of the human being can be coherently formulated in a non-theological framework.
