ABSTRACT
States that metabolism is a continued reclaiming of life, ever reasserting the value of being against its lapse into nothingness. The possibility of death is the burden with which life struggles; Death's necessity is life's blessing; Even the sickest of us wants to go on living, but thinking and sensing, not merely digesting.
