You Can’t Make This Up
title I was at a funeral this weekend.
I had no idea the service was a sham.
It was packed with dead bodies and the pall was so thick that it made me nauseous.
The people were just crying, I thought.
The dead bodies looked so empty and sad.
The man sitting next to me said he wanted to see his daughter.
He was not a medical professional and I didn’t think he had the slightest clue what a corpse is supposed to look like.
But it made him feel like he was on the cusp of understanding something profound.
The next day, he asked me to come and give him a lecture on how to properly care for a corpse.
We discussed the importance of the dead and the importance to preserve the body.
Then, I had to ask him about a subject that would make anyone want to cry: What if someone could be revived and still have the same personality?
I told him I would never do it.
He laughed, said, “I know, but it’s what you do with a corpse.”
I think the man who did it is the reason why people are still trying to understand why a corpse can still function in a healthy way after death.
A corpse is a part of you.
A corpse is what you are, and what you want to be.
You can make a mistake and it will never make you happy.
It’s your body, after all.
A body is just a part.
As for what you should do with the bodies, I think we can all agree that it’s up to you to figure that out.
And we’re all capable of doing that, too.
If you don’t want to do it, then I don’t see why you should.
