The Art Of Drowning

This is art. All the flimsy mental constructs we create to show our significance in everything we do; from our incredibly intricate religious dogmas, through our self serving justifications for our crumby actions, all the way down to our pleasing cliches (your life flashes before you at the moment of drowning). And, in the end, reality rolls over us with an indifference that seems...well, indifferent. It kind of reminds me of the nature show I saw of a bug being eaten by a praying mantis. Yum; lunch.
