Death By Dying

(audio available for paid subscribers)

I am not afraid of death,
I just don't want to be there when it happens.

Death and dying are two unrelated states representing opposite poles of the dramatic spectrum. Dying represents peak drama and being dead represents a total absence of drama. Dying is scary and dark and sad. Being dead, you just kind of lie there and rot.

     There is nothing which at once affects a
     man so much and so little as his own death.
     -Samuel Butler
