We live to die. Seduced by death into incarnation. We are born from decay as maggots. We govern the agreement of that which is taken cannot be retrieved, but may sustain new life. Death is literally the end of life as we know it, so in this way, the word does not necessarily indicate the physical end of a life, but rather, a change beyond our context of what is currently known. We live only to die within days of being born. Our momentary existence embodies the dissolution all organisms undergo on this planet. We live to die.
