First pass guess: because it captures the essential beauty of the inevitable destiny of every living body?


It’s funny, I just this afternoon started reading Lud-in-the-Mist, which features a character who is freaked out by everyday reminders of decay and the passage of time.

I hate to be that person, but that tomato is drying, not rotting.


It’s probably the soothing soundtrack that sounds like How It’s Made.
