Deceased getting turned into diamonds

Deceased getting turned into diamonds

Swiss company Algordanza takes cremated human remains and — under high heat and pressure that mimic conditions deep within the Earth — compresses them into diamonds.

Rinaldo Willy, the company's founder and CEO, says he came up with the idea a decade ago. Since then, his customer base has expanded to 24 countries.

Each year, the remains of between 800 and 900 people enter the facility. About three months later, they exit as diamonds, to be kept in a box or turned into jewelry.

Reliable, elegant and memorable probably indicates Swiss invention.

Great idea! What a space-saver.
Worthless in life, but marginally less-so in death.
Wow.

Squawk!

better yet, you can turn yourself into ammunitions.

Even in death you can continue to kill someone :)

Diamonds are overrated crap as jewelery. But one good way to use diamonds is for record player needles. And I guess that would be a fitting ending for someone who's been crazy about music all his life. But I'd hate to meet someone who turned their dead lover into a diamond ring or something. As if people weren't materialistic and shallow enough yet.

while we're about diamonds, what about soul diamonds?

The Ten Innermost Jewels


    Four entrustments:

        Entrusting one's mind and thoughts to the attainment of enlightenment.

        Entrusting one's life to life as a beggar.

        - Accepting poverty.

        Entrusting one's life to life as a beggar to death

        - Not holding any hopes and dreams of success.

        Entrusting one's life to a barren cave.

        - Accepting that society regards you as an enemy, and will make no place for you.


    Three diamond-like convictions:

        To be stalwart towards hindrances caused by friends and relatives.

        To disregard the opinion of worldly people.

        - No matter whether they call you a madman or a saint.

        To firmly guard one's practice.


    Three changes in one's living status:

        Expulsion from the ranks of men.

        Finding oneself among the ranks of dogs.

        Attaining divine ranks.''

And so very true. Who has such courage, not to mention such conviction?

Wait till you see what he has to say about women!

crow if you are not familiar with Kevin Solway you should check that link out, the man shares a lot with you.

Our corpses are not ours to desecrate. Bury and forget. Return them to the earth instead of turning them into more product.

Interesting link. Read a bit of it, reads like a more martial Nietzsche. Going to read more later.

Hey, I found a youtube channel of his. Awesome, more material to mull over - he's pretty intriguing.

No.

Having reviewed the thread, baby Jesus is most definitely weeping at this point.

I suggest that instead of God being Truth (as Christians proclaim), Truth is God - and that the Truth has many names.


On christianity:
Quote
When a religion is small and newly formed we call it a madcap cult; though when it becomes established it qualifies as a bona fide religion. What then are religions if not large and dangerous cults?

Christianity is a monster madcap cult, made up of desperately selfish people. Their "compassion" is a crudely disguised form of self-love, and their "peace" involves an intense hatred of whatever threatens it.
