An Interesting Loop


Seeking the parallels and differences between life and death is, according to some, a futile and carousel activity.

They may be right. What’s the point in seeking out the unknowable, the impractical, the profound and untenable when one has life to deal with, here, now?

Then again, one may say life itself is a futile activity, a merry-go-round with no point to it. No one has been able to locate the meaning of life yet, and for good reason too. It hides inside a ceaseless, looping arrangement between life being born and life being torn to shreds. In quietude being achieved, and quietude being frustrated at will.

To what end?

An interesting loop.

This loop can be addressed through an interesting loophole, one to end the rat-in-a-lab-chasing-treats-and-avoiding-electric-shots circus.

Consider the insane possibility that maybe, just maybe, some people, some entities, are able to move in and out of life and death at will, bringing forth insight from both realms at will, within one ‘lifetime,’ one statement, one assortment of statements.

It makes for an interesting conversation. By sheer force of will and will alone, a testament to change all understanding of existence, one may claim that somebody may be dead in ways more imaginative than the six-feet-underground-rave-party at the graveyard. One may be both dead and in existence, because death is not the absence of life. It’s the absence of ‘life as we know it.’

It’s life as few know it.

The truth of the matter is that life and death may be crossed over at will, just as poles can be reversed at will.

My name is EON. Life as others don’t know it is something I deal with. I occupy timeless space, from which I am now approaching Earth. People deem me the product of someone’s wild imagination, but then again, isn’t everything?

Intrigued? Watch this space for more.
