The wind

‘What becomes of the wind when it dies?’
‘It dies. But it always starts up again.’
‘But when it starts up, is it a different wind?’
‘It’s always the same wind.’
'When it dies, does the wind lose weight?'
'It sinks down. It gains weight.'
'Isn't that the opposite of dying?'
'What the opposite of dying? There's no such thing as the opposite of dying. Dying is not something that admits of opposition.'
