That's right! Imagine billions of people, many of them useless eaters, who are so selfish even in death they must be pumped full nasty chemicals and
sealed inside a metal box so that there's no chance of them giving back to the earth or their peers in death.
Then you have this word "revolution" being thrown around by endless millions of people, yet when the overwhelming majority of them die they'll be
pumped full of embalming fluid, painted with oil derivative makeups, dressed in a fancy new polyester suit/dress, packed into a metal box, and sealed
in with jewelry and other useful materials. Velvet line that casket: they can't even feel it's comfort!
You have people like Ray Kurzweil talk about the "computer revolution" when computers become smarter than humans and therefore dominate us, yet, a
revolution is things going in a circle: a pattern that returns to an original state. The cycle of life!
The Cycle of Life is what makes the world go round, until we humans get involved, consume endless resources, and then in fear of worms turning us into
compost we obsess over being embalmed.
Grow food from me!
Save the seeds!
Till me into a huge garden plot, and savor every bite of that produce. Save the seeds. Don't let my nutrients spoil in waste.
Or just bury me 6' under, just without all that embalming casket BS. Take taproot perennials that I have growing in containers in my garden, and
plant them over me. Get berries and fruit every year. If that's more digestible then so be it, all I know is don't let me go to waste. I'm
not that selfish, don't make me haunt you when I don't believe in ghosts.
We use stainless steel and aluminum to make caskets. Imagine the world without either resource. 100 years ago aluminum had about the same value as
GOLD: but until then they didn't know how to utilize the most abundant metal on earth. When they realized how the price dropped. In modern days,
stainless steel has become one of the biggest game changers in the human experience. Yet when I die I'm to suck up those resources while being
embalmed to ensure there's no hope of me ever returning even a small fragment of everything I consumed my whole life?
Forget a casket, let my taproot Goji Berries be planted over me. Forget a tombstone, picking me every year is true appreciation. Forget flowers, just
make sure I get enough water when it's dry for long periods.
I challenge any and all religious folks, show me where humans didn't come from the earth, and then how we're not supposed to return to it for the
next cycle of life.
