Illusions of Immortality: Tales from the Shadows
Immortality? It’s a joke, in this world you’ll save yourself a lot of time and money if you just ditch the idea. Just stop believing in it. Live fast, big and die young. You can’t take it with you and when you’re about to die you won’t care if it’s comfortable, you’ll still die. Of all the marvels of science to make you faster, bigger, stronger it all comes crashing down when you realize it all cuts down your lifespan. Less meat in the ‘me’ and more metal doesn’t mean you live longer. It means you’ve already throwing the ‘you’ away, pieces are being stripped away. I’m not even going to get started on magic… I have enough nightmares about the ‘normal’ things I’ve seen. So burn as bright as you can for as long as you can. But not too bright… you’ll be seen running in those shadows.
