Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

Pretty fancy looking, huh? Too bad it ain’t gonna last. Moving images exist on either film which degrades over time or electronic mediums which are susceptible to magnetism or intense radiation (one good solar flare will wipe out everything). I’m a big fan of this new digital age, but we will need to supplement the ones and zeros with tangible items like photographs, paintings, sculptures, architecture and books if we want our stories to endure. Life or animation is just an illusion, there is no way to capture it for eternity, but it will exist for an eternity. These mediums subvert relativity by just sitting still. However, they are not full proof, relativity still gets its hits in. Remember this once looked something like this.
