Beauty and Death

The reservation of land, space and matter to the memory and sake of the dead is an ancient human tradition. From the pyramids at Gaza and the catacombs of Rome and Paris, to the ancient burial mounds of Ireland, N. and S. America, and Russia - it is a worldwide phenomenon. To respect the dead and to give them a place to stay may not serve a practical function beyond some psychological comfort to the living that perhaps they won't be forgotten either. But it does serve to create beautiful objects and spaces. Allegheny Cemetary in Pittsburgh is a beautiful space to walk in, and to share it with thousands of corpses in boxes is very peaceful to some.

Would you prefer a more commercial use of the land next to your houes? Perhaps a mall or megaplex? Or perhaps something more 'Mav' like a neon be-decked stripper themed roller derby with a shooting range out back and a roller coaster in front? I bet we could make a killer water slide down the steps at Ankgor Wat too.
