Remember You Must Die

I can be described as living because I continue to exist every minute that passes. I can be described as dying (which is to say, in the process of dying) because every minute that passes erodes the quantity of life remaining and brings me closer to my death. In other words I can with perfect accuracy be described as simultaneously living and dying. There's no semantic trickery here; it means what it suggests, that in the fullest sense living and dying are synonyms.
