Polar Opposites


Death is not just the absence of life. It’s also a case of two polar opposites, much like the north and south of the magnetic sphere. They exist as part of the same continuum, enabling the continuum. They validate each other, making one another possible, yet cannot for one instant overlap. They’re incompatible. North is always north and south is always south, not terrestrially but spatially, ontologically. When one pole reverses, the other follows suit. A pole is a pole is a pole, with its counterpart standing across it, enabling the flow between them. Poles exist to give rise to the field, and the field gives rise to the poles, and polar these poles are, and must remain as such, for any kind of forcefield to manifest.

Such is life and death. Polar opposites. Always connected and communicating, but ultimately incommunicado.

Naturally incompatible.

This makes any kind of transition between the two spheres impossible and meaningless. Unless one takes into account something more imaginative than medieval superstition, something superposited, there is no afterlife. Only life and its absence.
