Once upon … way back in different place..
When we still knew, when we still were aware that we don’t ‘’ die’’= decease expire when the body stops functioning than we simply thought when leaving the body that ‘’we vaporize’’ this meant for us that the things we were connected to no longer existed and we, the self, we become nothing or we no longer wanted to continue, gotten bored and thought: Hell with all these crap, I will go vapor!
It seems even than we associated, identified self with things, but we knew when we ‘’vaporized’’ that we still were, we still existed but without being tied-secured to things.
I like this expression: hehehe, see you guys I am going to vapor! J
