Decomposition Is a Law of Nature

I can understand people getting themselves frozen, that kind of preservation makes sense even though it doesn't work....yet. But embalmed? Why do people like having thier bodies and those of thier loved ones pumped full of so many toxins they may never decompose? We're going to eventually run out of room to bury the dead the way we're going. If you want to be burried, there is the option of a natural burial but that's not available everywhere, and you can't just burry a body anywhere. Cremation is a very old way of dealing with the dead that helps make sure the soul is released. I don't feel like sticking around here very long after I'm gone. The sooner this body is destroyed the better severed is my connection to it and the sooner I can get on with my existance
