Fresh fruit is at the peak of decay. What is ripe fruit? it’s dying. We eat something that’s at the peak of death.
So are we. You can revel in the negative side of rot but having done gardening, what’s rotten is the most productive. Decaying matter is food and nutrition.
So is life. Anybody over the age of 7 knows at some level that we’re always dying. Big deal. We’re also constantly recycling within ourselves and recreating.
So unique? Special? Yes.
Snowflake? No. A snowflake is a drop of pretty water shattered to bits.
