A fallen tree, completely detached from its truck;
Alive, dying or dead?
The fallen branch appears to be exactly as the truck, regardless of the detachment.
So how can any body, know for sure which one is actually alive.
One, instantly becomes apart of the whole, while one is pinned to a form that is also part of the whole.
Is the fallen tree closer to life, detached from its trunk or is it further away?
