Death: The process of dying. It is an active force, not one of dwindling, and is spun with the force of living, which is known as life. Death cannot be removed from life. Life cannot be removed from death. They are one force. Dying and living happen at the same time, in tension with each other. Humans, and other creatures, exist at this point of creative tension. If death, or life, were removed they would be neither creatures nor human.
I was so embarrassed I just died.
