Towers of Silence - and the important principle behind them

2009/8/17 roryyoung15

What is the most environmentally friendly way to dispose of the dead? I think towers of silence are a wonderful concept and crazy though it may sound think I miht go ahead and build one even if I do end up being the only person to use it!


Dear Rory
This depends on where in the world you are located. It is not the towers of silence that are sacred to Zoroastrians but the principle of how to dispose of the corpses (recycle them) without filthying the earth, the water or the fire. There are proposals for Zoroastrian coyote farms in North America since there are no vultures there (and hardly any left in India either). Personally I like the idea of disposing of the dead in a limited ground area and then let worms do what vultures do in India. This is actually the practice that is most common in Iran today and I would like to introduce the same practice in Scandinavia since it would work well here (we have neither vultures nor coyotes). But most of all I like the Zoroastrian idea that a corpse is just a corpse and NOT a human being. That is what is so great compared to the Abrahamic faiths and their almost idiotic obsession with corpses. What's the big deal with a corpse? After all, it is dead!!!

… ARMY OF LOVERS’ CLONES are as French résistance. French communist Michael romances with positive lad from positive French Gestapo. Local stripper Sarah is busy worker. Female Polizei is in jealousy. Unhonest Owner of Milk Factory is only one negative person. There is no blood and horrors in the story that is the result of mobilistic philosophy. Do you want Whole Clip script, Alex? And what about the Romanovs and The communists who live in complete peace or BWO, VACCUUM and ARMY OF LOVERS members as heroes of fancy tales?




…What are scientists Children of the knowledge Primal seed of cosmical machine Schemes and terms from sky laboratories Investigation‘s brought by Creator‘s wit
