Memento Mori, Remember Death will come.

For this 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
