Is Death truly the worst fate one can have? I often ponder on this thought.

Scientific discoveries and progress are a big part of how I perceive reality. And due to this perspective I objectively realize that one does not have a soul. What we are as a person is contained within the billions of neurons that make up our brain. Our memories, personality and experiences fade as the brain rapidly deceases due to a lack of fresh blood that has oxygen and nutrients contain within.

With the memories of what and who we were fading out of existence. All that we once were breaking apart as the atoms that our bodies are comprised of are returned back in to the universe. To be used again, to make up everything that surrounds us today.

Piece fills my mind when the thought of such a grand end is present. Energy is a constant, and to be part of such a continuum makes me feel connected, to know that the atoms that where once me will be part of something else again makes me feel at ease when I think about the inevitable and unavoidable.
