The online Los Angeles Times  yesterday —

June 11, 2015 

Robert Chartoff, an Oscar-winning Hollywood producer
who got a tantalizing peek into show business in the Catskills
and went on to make six "Rocky" films, "Raging Bull,"
"The Right Stuff" and nearly two dozen other movies,
has died at his home in Santa Monica. He was 81.

Chartoff, who died Wednesday, had been diagnosed with
pancreatic cancer two years ago, his son William said.

A fiction quoted here on the reported date of Chartoff's death —

“What… what happened?” you asked. “Where am I?”

“You died,” I said, matter-of-factly. No point in mincing words.

Update of 9 PM:

The book that "The Martian" is based on is by Andy Weir.
A somewhat Hindu (or Socratic) religious meditation from
Weir's earlier story "The Egg" —

“Your soul is more magnificent, beautiful, and gigantic
than you can possibly imagine."
