Death

What makes death so eerie for some is the difficulty we seem to have remembering it.

Death

We’ve been here before.
As all the clairvoyant Deja Vu
and naturalistically vivid dreams
would suggest,
we’ve been here before.
We’ve been here after as well.
What makes death so eerie
for some
is the difficulty we seem to have
remembering it.
Like the unadulterated blackout of
a heavy night gone by,
we lie bewildered the morning after
confined to a universe of
ignorance and fear.
Every time the simulation reboots our
previous experiences get
deleted.
Not a complete delete though.
Dragged into the trash maybe.
The recycle bin.
Carefully encrypted
back into the depths of our memory.
They must be living there still,
hidden amongst the lines of code.
Somewhere.
They do seem to restore to the surface
in glimpses.
Glitches.
Time is ticking.
Or is it?
Be patient.
Wait for the next update.
We must be due an update soon.
The current OS is on it’s way out.
Obsolete.
When the new one gets released,

we will remember everything.
