Imagine that your mind and control over your body have been everything that defines you as a person, your whole life.
And then imagine when one day you start losing your control and also your mind.
The independence. The freedom.
I can only guess that it can be damn scary.
I do not think I would be as brave.
Oh well. That's how things go. That's how the wind blows.
In the end, we all have to face Terminus - the God of Boundaries.
