But what is death?
Life is the subjective experience of a concious mind recognising change over time. Death, we can assume therefore, is the opposite of this. Or perhaps the absence? Death is the absence of change over time?
Then therefore, what is time? The moment variable in the equation? When we know that the planar heterotic superstring consists of a closed loop with two planes of vibration - Clockwise and counterclockwise - time, perhaps, can be considered the intersect of these two planes, the bidimensional delta plateau from which we integrate to yield the ghost shadows we call 'memory'... The residual data left from every fermion striking the surface of our transdimensional continuum. Time, I think, is the concept we have dreamt up to allow us to function with some degree of sanity - A kind of giant pile we sweep everything into so we don't get caught up experiencing past, present and future simultaneously. We will need to overcome this barrier if we ever wish to transcend reality.
The clockwise vibrations live in a ten-dimensional universe. The counterclockwise live in twenty-six dimensional space, and interact with fermions to produce a net entropic effect. Entropy, of course, being the measure of disorder in a closed system. Though in truth, our 'closed system' should really be considered the universe, we don't [i]really[/i] know just how closed our universe is - I often wonder if some of those images we're picking up, some of those radio signals and cosmic noise, are nothing more then reflected signals from ourselves a billion years ago, which spun out into the aether, struck the 'edge' of time and space and merely warped back upon themselves to come back the way they came... The universe, if it has a shape, will be a torus, or perhaps a kline bottle, being the only 'real' shape we can contemplate a metadimensional depth to... Of those twenty six dimensions we mentioned earlier, sixteen have been compacted to maintain a trans-dimensional equilibrium without inducing a massive resonant effect due to the asynchronous waveform. If you recall, Kaluza's original definition only included five dimensions which did provide a static pattern and a balance, but did not explain the force exerted by weakly interacting massive particles. So, our 'closed system' should be considered the empty spacetime held inside this twenty-six dimensional net, where the moebotic superstring covers every angstrom simultaneously - For until something strikes it - Until something observes it - That string is more like a sphere, in every possible iteration simultaneously.
Where was I going with this? oh, yes... Given that death is the absence of change over time, to integrate that change to get a static '0' answer would require a phenomonally fucked up curve... something on the magnitude of a gyroscope locked in three dimensions, forced to precess into time. Death is not the end of life. Death IS life, merely extrapolated into a dimension we cannot currently percieve in this eminently weak fleshforms.
