“Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”

Do you mean physically, psychologically, biologically, something else?

Not death. Unless you have seen Andy Warhol's Frankenstein. Then, to "understand death" you "have to fuck life in the gallbladder...."

Why do newbies always post this question? Is this a test? I haven't studied for a test since my last blood test.
