    State of the world

    Post whatever makes you stop and consider ...

    such as, did you know that in most of the world (certainly the developed world) death from suicide exceeds death from violence? Makes you wonder what everybody is so scared of.

    My friend worked with late-stage alzheimers patients and they would sometimes 'wake up' when she played them music from their childhoods.

    On a similar note, caterpillars dissolve into mush inside cocoons. They digest themselves but still somehow retain certain key bits of information and know what to become.

    It's always interesting to think about how long the fundamental qualities of fragile things can last. Even if there's a total apocalypse, I think there will still be a lot of stuff happening for a very long time in all the mush and debris and dying cells.

    Old. Hair thining. Always hides behind a bad overly-restrictive suit to try to hide his actual frailty. Clearly insane. Turning around and stumpily waving at things because his clothing choice barely lets him raise his hands above his shoulders.
