Would it disturb you much if, upon your death, your body were simply thrown into the woods and left to rot? Why?
Well… I’ll admit, the thought is slightly disturbing. But, if I’m being honest, it doesn’t really matter all that much to me. If I’m dead, I’m dead. What happens to my body doesn’t bother me for the same reason I’ve signed up to be an organ donor. I’m not using it anymore. What do I care what happens to it? My consciousness/soul/spirit will be in a much better place.
Would it bother you to be tossed away when you’re dead?
