Life and death are the beginning and end of all living organisms. As human beings, we are also a part of the nature and a part of the ecological circle. In this case, no matter how far human beings have developed and how far science has advanced, I think people should still follow the laws of nature. It's not about having a funeral in a more luxurious way or making the person who passed away more dignified and more sophisticated. There is an old saying: Falling leaves return to the roots. As is the case with all living things, no one can escape death, and since death is equivalent to returning to nature and providing a new cycle of birth, the natural burial is still the best way, where the dead lose their lives and provide a ladder to new life. No matter what kind of funeral, as long as the contribution to the natural environment is reasonable and worthy of respect. Funerals shouldn't have privileges in between. I envision a world where all people respect natural laws, where people accept natural burials and where there are policies to support them.I respect all new life and those who have died. I also believe that "returning to the roots" is the end of life's journey and the way that all life respects nature. Humans should not have privilege in this rule. At the same time, rewilding is also a relatively important step, because it can provide some restoration for nature. Too many modern cities and projects have seriously affected the natural environment. Rewilding is not only a kind of respect for life and nature, but also a kind of redemption for nature in modern society.

I agree with this post! You have a really interesting and poignant view of death and life. I think if we can accept the fears of death and move forward by confronting it maturely, we can approach it like this.
You write so well, and your title makes perfect sense. We are part of the natural ecology, and a natural burial is a great way to return to our roots. Rewilding is also a way for humans to remedy the situation and make it more sustainable.
