I've listened to the ads, "don't be a burden on your loved ones" type of thing. A pre-arranged funeral would be just purrfect. Indeed, a plot bought and waiting for you is even better. All arranged by easy and weekly installment plan.
Does any of this make sense to you? Not me I'm afraid.
In fact I was thinking more along the lines of a plan that involves hiring a skip (see photo). Much cheaper than a funeral.
After all, what's the big deal? My body is just a vessel that facilitates my journey on this earth. My body is not the essence of who I am. My body has always been the physical limits of my possibilities. Hardly something to mourn is it?
If I was religious, I would consider death a metamorphosis, much like an insect shedding its cocoon.
On the other hand, being utilitarian by nature, I think I might donate my body to science, and give my organs to others and give life as a celebration of my death.
