Life in reverse

It would make more sense if the life cycle was all backwards. Die first, and get death out of the way. Then you live in an old age home with pension. You get your PF and start working. You work 40 years, until you are young enough to enjoy retirement. You booze, party and get ready for high school. Then you become a kid, play, have no worries. Then you become a little baby, go back in to the womb and spend your last nine months floating, and finish off as a chromosome.

So said a forwarded message I received recently on my mobile.

Yet, I ask myself. Does it at all make a difference really? At the end of the day, so long you are no longer a human, does it matter if you were a ghost rather than a chromosome? Now, don’t tell me that the human beings would not be afraid of becoming a chromosome (as they are now afraid of death). Thinking about it, what eventually will happen is the whole statement about being a kid and having nothing to worry about will become false!

We both know that there are other ways of destroying a man, Tom – Albus Dumbledore.

Perhaps. Turn him into a chromosome.
