There comes a time when you realize your existence on this planet can end at any time. You may have lived thirty to forty years and come to the conclusion that your life according to averages is about half over. Some individuals may look at "cycle" and see a sea monster, something scary. Other people when looking at "cycle" observe beautiful colours and flowing lines. There are those of us who view death as something to avoid at all costs. Death in reality is a sharing of life. "Cycle" was meant to be a celebration of that sharing. Nature will enforce this action for our own good as a species. There are after all only so many berths on the good ship earth.
