First thing I thought of when waking up this morning was: Everything alive on this earth is dying. Life begets life.. and on and on.. but each generation is weaker than the last. Each generation benefits from less minerals, less oxygen, more corruption, pollution, contamination and erosion. dysfunction, mutation, deviation, derision.. increasingly aggressive and deadly, evolving pathogens. Poisonous "medicines", stress, population bloat, societal "ideals". We spend our entire lives carving out a sliver of time in which to enjoy life.. and by that time, we're climbing into the grave. In the end, everything that lives succumbs to corruption.. be it organic, societal or financial. If it relates to humans.. all three. I thought of all that... and then I went back to sleep.
