When we die, the weight of our ashes will roughly equates to how much we weighed when were were brought into this world. It’s funny because after the ashes are scattered and we become a part of nature as fertilizer, we’re back to being basically nothing in this big big world. Physically anyway. A full circle?
http://www.rukfuneralhome.com/qa/cremationfaqs –> Average weight of ashes (without urn) = 4-5 pounds http://www.childrenshospital.org/az/Site1281/mainpageS1281P0.html –> Average weight of newborn= ~7 pounds

” A full circle ” well said!
Haha was definitely inspired by the other post I was reading 😛 But I mean, it’s kind of sad, but also quite beautiful imo
That’s an interesting thing, about the equal weights. I think of it as a peak and then tapering back off, rather than a full circle. Cos in our last years sometimes we go back to being dependent upon others.
Ahh interesting way to look at it!
A full circle indeed. Kind of like wearing diapers as a baby and then again when you’re old. I guess needing someone to chew your food as well.
Ahh yes, definitely the diaper part. LOL yeah I’ll just blend my food in a food processor. Yeah yeah, I know that’s what you actually meant.
