This is what I was trying to say the other day when I had a few too many glasses of cheap red.
The "end of the world" naturally would more than likely be an incredibly, imperceptibly slow process. Not a giant asteroid impact, not a huge nuclear
war, not a space-death-ray or alien invasion.
A slow, soft death, nearly noiseless, but far from painless.
The thing is that the world doesn't "end" (at least right now), it just goes on, bruised... and then recovers, then something else happens, then
recovers, and so on, until the inevitable fizzle eventually kicks in.
And by the world, I'm mostly talking about the life on the surface of the planet. Everything cycles. Even the sun, everything.
I love the movie and book "The Stand" and that intro always stuck with me.
The thing that amazes me the most about this event is how much of a memento mori it is. Life is resilient, but suffering is inevitable on this planet.
So long as there is life, there is pain. But to many, the pain is worth it...
And life goes on.
Dang... that got kinda deep.
