Life is another form of death. Together, they form an eternal cycle but for a majority of the past century, life and death have been seen as opposites and many have chosen to ignore the topic of death. In our unwillingness to address the topic, the Western burial practice that emerged out of the late 19th and early 20th centuries remained unquestioned for decades. It was not until recent years, with closer examination, Westerners began to realise some of these practices are environmentally unfavourable. For this and other reasons, many people have begun searching for alternative burial methods. This paper serves is a search for an alternative burial method. This research is centred on the Ouroboros, the eternal cycle of life and death and humans place within that cycle.
