Death is always a possibility behind the stick of a fighter, however that likelihood can be overcome with superior skill and talent. The only death that is assured is that from the progress of time. My favorite analogy compares time to an unceasing hunting beast that you cannot escape.
It is this fact and the shock that time has been traversed that brings things into question. As an unwilling passenger forward through the months, this Timelight has somehow invested itself in me- and I believe it is killing me.
I shall endeavor to develop these new skills, powers and talents to overcome the beast.
