Notes

  • Epigraph: Yesterday a drop of semen, tomorrow a handful of spices and ashes...In the life of a man, his time is but a moment, his being an incessant flux, his senses a dim rushlight, his body a prey of worms, his soul an unquiet eddy, his fortune dark and his fame doubtful. - Marcus Aurelius, Emperor of Rome, 161-180 AD
