Not a single star will be left in the night.
The night will not be left.
I will die and, with me,
the weight of intolerable universes.
I shall erase the pyramids, the medallions,
the continents and faces.
I shall erase the accumulate past.
I shall make dust of history, dust to dust.
I am looking on the final sunset.
I hear the last bird
I bequeath nothingness to no one.
-Jorge Luis Borges
Worry not, just an interesting segue into a fascinating radio program on Freakonomics on suicide, the power of influence (suicidal soft power?) and a lot of iconoclastic tidbits about the act. Like that the places with the highest rates of homicide have the lowest suicide rates, and that they highest percentage of people who commit the act are not teenagers but rather old white males in the West Coast.
