This last Friday I flew to Victoria, B.C. to attend a memorial service
for my grandmother who died suddenly last week. The Anglican minister
delivered an impassioned eulogy, yet his words gave me little comfort.
I really wish I could believe that she has gone on to join my grandfather
in a better world, but I have travelled too far down the Virian path to
be able to delude myself, even for a short while. How can a hardcore
materialist deal with the loss of loved ones? I don't think Virus can
be a viable religion until it satisfactorily addresses this issue.
