Reversing the order of the "ca" in scared is an insight worth expanding. Sacred is the resulting remnant of our religious past. Imagine a world where religious sensibilities were universally acknowledged as a heuristic of sorts, fictive imaging with lessons of virtue transmitted in acts of historicity. Destined for the dustbin is an anticipated futurity and exercise in Nothingness. Speaking of Heidegger, historicity is more or less circular reasoning, o sepi to poli. Digressing towards the mean is an end in itself and I want to assert that the only logical next teleology is a progressive and purposeful interpretation of death for what it is and what it is not.
