Grave, no more.

Today I read something fascinating on the Internet. And it was not one of those stupid clickbait articles.

No More Coffins – These Organic Burial Pods Will Turn YOU Into A TREE When You Die.

What an idea!

“This unique burial method originated in Italy and is titled The Capsula Mundi project, created by designers Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel. The designers created an organic, biodegradable burial capsule that actually transforms the body of the deceased into a tree. As this occurs, the body would turn into nutrients for the tree that would allow it to grow.”

Imagine yourself becoming a tree after dying. Like a true rebirth. Some people may have an opinion that it is better to leave your organs to live after you die by donating them, instead of becoming a tree. Or you could do both.

Somewhere in the article they said that if this project does become legal, then there would be an entire memorial park of trees rather than tombstones. You can take care of the trees of your loved ones. How sweet.

But think about walking through such a forest. That will be so creepy. More horror ghost stories I foresee. Kabristan in a jungle. Woah. I have never been to a cemetery, only seen it in some old hindi movies. Oh there is one close to where somebody I know lives. I must take a walk through a cemetery some time. Haha.

Ok, no more goofing, goodnight!
