Pantsing the Naked Singularity

“How do you plan on killing death, then?”

“Have you heard of a ‘naked singularity’?”

“Umm, no. Do I want to?”

“Yes. It’s a black hole that’s built up so much hydrogen around it that it nullifies the whole ‘sucking everything into it that passes the event horizon’ thing, you know, like that bad Disney movie… only this stops it.”

“What does that have to do with killing Death?”

“You’re not very bright sometimes, Jeron. We have to do two things. First, we find Death. No small feat, but I think I know where to start. I got this book from an old Chinese guy… but that’s a different story. Second, we throw so much life at Death that we basically nullify him and turn him into a naked singularity.”

“I get it. This is why you don’t have any friends, Kyle. You’re basically saying we’re going to go on a murderous rampage, sacrificing all manner of flora and fauna into Death’s gaping maw – and you’re being completely serious.”

“Yep. What can go wrong? It’s foolproof!”
