The Human Condition

Other animals spend their lives living, whereas humans spend their lives creating elaborate rituals in the hope of avoiding death.


About Kevin_Fraleigh

I am a novelist, and much of my writing is predicated on the concept that within each of us is a hole. For some of us, the hole is a divot, shallow and insignificant. But for many of us the hole is a cavern, deep and expansive. We try to fill it with sex or drugs or religion, but the cavern has an insatiable appetite. This is where the dark things live―the things that fill our nightmares. The things that claw at our minds. The things that inspire the stories of horror, madness, and twisted realities. From the depths of that cavern come the seeds of my stories. Won’t you join me in the dark edges of reality? Learn more about me from my blog at You can find my novels at,, and most eBook retailers.

    Only humans can choose Life Eternal. And it is often a ritual which leads them to this knowledge.
    Because of this, no other animal form, besides the human being, can live in perfect contentment and peace while on earth. This is the true Life which never dies.

    It does seem peculiar. So much time and resources are consecrated to ‘hereafter insurance’. Often do I envy other life forms, seemingly able to go through their existence with out ever lending a thought to human concerns.
