I think that's illegal, here. And it sure would hurt, I suppose..

Hmm, in eastern culture it's not that bad... We actually consider that a very wise answer. There are some facts in the world that seems sour and cold, but they are true: The only way to learn what happens after one dies, is to die yourself. Of course, the monk isn't encouraging one to try it, it's just an "artistic" way to state he cannot answer the question, and nobody can answer it. (Well, as you probably know, in China or Japan we usually imply more things than we say directly, so you sometimes would have great difficulties comprehending the actual meaning of our words if you only consider the literal meaning.)
Also, a small notification: I slightly modified my last reply.

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
