We’re just part of the world, breaking down, or being torn down
Maybe this is the most horrifying idea of all, although admittedly it’s not cinematic. We aren’t fragile creatures, shattered instantly under the wrong conditions. We’re just part of the world, breaking down, or being torn down, no faster or slower than anything else.
(Emphasis mine.) This beautifully poetic description of death comes from Five Ways You Probably Wouldn’t Die In a Vacuum, and One Way You Probably Would at io9.
