Hm (Thoughtful Upward Glance, Furrowed Brow)

While editing Shmuley Boteach’s book, I came across this:

“An idea which might also have such unintended potential was proposed by Nobel laureate Francis Crick, who suggested that it may be necessary to redefine the concepts of ‘birth’ and ‘death.’ He suggested that the time of birth of an infant be redefined as two days after parturition so that there would be time to examine it. Crick has also proposed redefining death as occurring when a pre-determined age were achieved. At that time the person’s property would pass on to his heirs.”

This is… interesting.  I will research further and get back to y’all.
