Virus

I got smacked upside the head this morning by the worst possible virus. I thought I had severe vertigo, I couldn't stand. Throwing up helped to reset my life force somehow. So unfortunately I'm totally laid low. By a lifeform only a few microns long.

Viruses are good examples of how life relies like all objects on contradictoriness at a deep level. I virus is like a Henkin sentence that tells your genome to look it up in its inventory. While you're busy doing that you're inadvertently copying the virus.

Your body becomes a photocopier for a document called "I cannot be copied on this copy machine." When the number of copies reaches a certain threshold, death is imminent.
