Murray Templeton was forty-five years old, in the prime of life, and with all parts of his body in perfect working order except for certain key portions of his coronary arteries, but that was enough.

The pain had come suddenly, had mounted to an unbearable peak, and had then ebbed steadily.  He could feel his breath slowing and a kind of gathering peace washing over him.

There is no pleasure like the absence of pain – immediately after pain.  Murray felt an almost giddy lightness as though he were lifting in the air and hovering.

He opened his eyes and noted with distant amusement that the others in the room were still agitated.  He had been in the laboratory when the pain had struck, quite without warning, and when he had staggered, he had heard surprised outcries from the others before everything vanished into overwhelming agony.

Now, with the pain gone, the others were still hovering, still anxious, still gathered about his fallen body –– Which, he suddenly realised, he was looking down on.

Life

by on Oct.03, 2010, under cool

The following fact has been in my mind lately, inspired by something I read on reddit a week or so ago In my body right now, biochemical reactions we call “life” are occurring. It’s cool that they’ve been going my whole life, my heart has done well over a billion beats at this point. That’s cool.But my life processes date back longer than that. My cells grew out of a egg and sperm that came from my mom and dad, and that process was continuous. In other words, they were living before, they came together, rearranged themselves, and kept on going. So in a very real sense, my life is a continuation of my dad’s life and my mom’s — admittedly for only two very lucky cells of theirs. Likewise, their life was the continuation of their progenitors, and so on.In that sense, as a living thing, I’ve been going strong for at least 3.5 billion years. Yes, I used to be simpler, and at various times I’ve narrowed down to just a couple of cells, but through thick and thin, I’ve managed.When I die, it’ll be the end of the line. But 3.5 billion years will have been a pretty good run.
