Life is a Fatal Disease

This is the title of a poetry collection that caught by eye when browsing at the library. This is the kind of phrase that makes one think about its profundity but after sometime it becomes just another way of describing the mundaneness of being (a la Marvin the paranoid android).

A fatal disease is that leads to certain death. How, when and where the death may occur is what makes the difference. The person may try to prolong their life with medical aids but cannot prevent the inevitable. Likewise one may live like one wishes because in the end, when all ends, life too, ends.

Why does the above not make any sense at all?? Oh well, nevermind. Life is a fatal disease.

  1. Yup, like Tyler Durden says ‘This is your life and it is ending one minute at a time’ and like Ed Norton says from the same movie ‘On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.’

  2. Though what you say may seem similar, life as a fatal ‘disease’ causes discomfort even though it be ending one minute at a time.

  3. its simply how u wish to see exactly the same thing..for example ‘Tuesdays with Morris’ approaches the same subject ina much more positive vein.
