My beliefs about death are not firm. I do not know what will happen to my consciousness when I die. But I do believe in the basic tenet that matter, and energy, can be neither created or destroyed, only transformed. 

Oddly what got me thinking about this topic, and therefore what inspired the painting was this scene in fight club that came up on my Tumblr: http://dodare.tumblr.com/post/142095888287


I wouldn't say my knowledge of death has freed me from fear though.
