collaging

followed through on what I had wanted to try yesterday: art. I collaged a lot while listening to music… Now I just have to be able to explain them to D when I see him… not sure I want him to see them all, but will try to show at least one. I showed my wife a “safe” one that, while still hitting very close to how I feel right now, was on stuff that’s easier to talk about…
If I remember, I may post one here… though I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you…


“Erasing Death”

The Today Show had a piece just now on death,  the afterlife,  and a doctor who feels that we are on the cusp of figuring out how to reverse death.  My mom commented that those people who have supposedly had a near-death experience seem to not fear death.  Though I have never had one, I do not fear death.  I also would not want to be brought back from death… while I do not believe in the catholic version of the heaven,  I do believe that we must transcend this life to get to the next (more closely aligned with the Hindu idea of reincarnation,  but not quite that either). I believe that we live non-linear in time outside of this life.  Our souls (for lack of a better term) drift along the lines and select a life to live out.  we gain experiences, then move on to the next one.  We remember snippets of this learning in this life,  but overall I think it is mostly reserved for our understanding outside of corporeal existence.  so if I’m moving back to that state,  please leave me to do it… don’t bring me back from death.  I’m done here…
This has no real bearing on the suicide issue other than if I’m dead, leave me be. Whatever the reason or path to death, once it is achieved,  don’t try to “save” me.  My beliefs mean that death is another step in evolution… please respect that.
