2-Memento Mori, Remember Death will come

Memento Mori, Remember Death will come.

For this weeks’ topic, let’s imagine how we’d like to “leave this
mortal coil,” to “make our exit,” or to “start pushing up the daisies.”
The chapter reading for this week gives us ample examples and
suggestions, a kind of blueprint, for how we could image this. These
range from the personally eccentric examples laid out in the “Going out
BIG” section, to the monumental markers on an architectural scale laid
out in the section on “Ego,” or would you prefer to be physically
preserved forever for all to see?

These are just some starting points to get you inspired- you don’t
have to answer these questions, they are meant to fire up some ideas
within your brainstorming.

  • Are there special items that you’d like to accompany your corpse?
    Maybe it’s that favorite light saber, lucky hat, wedding ring, your
    baseball card collection, an important religious object, or that 1967
    Chevy Camero with white leather interior?
  • Do you want to share your (cremated) remains among your loved ones?
    What should they do with them—put them in amulets on chains, in an urn
    on the mantle, or resting in more traditional place like a cemetery?
  • Or would you select a burial, in your favorite car perhaps, in a
    custom Kane Kwei-style coffin shaped like a chicken, or in a giant crypt
    with your favorite 60” television, with a full bar and a butler, or
    with any of the other things you need in the afterlife?
  • Do you want a ritualized celebration honor with fireworks, dancing, or the Pope, or any other religious figure’s, blessing?

These examples are all rooted in ancient traditions, the art of which
is covered in this chapter, that predate our contemporary traditions.
Keep in mind that these scenarios are imaginary, so be as creative as
