|... I would travel. Everywhere. At once.
I would send my eyes to Tibet via whatever happens to be the slowest mail-carrying mammal on the route. An exercise in patience, if you will. My feet, I think, could go to the ruins of the ancient civilizations of South America. They probably couldn't tell that they're in pretty bad shape by now. They'd just feel the hard stone, and be glad they don't have a heart to remove in a human sacrifice ritual. My hands should go to Australia, maybe pick up a few things from the aboriginals there, image-wise. I would send my torso to the amazon rain forests, just to feel the moisture and to fill my lungs with the air. My nose should go there, too.
My ears could experience the desert. Freeze at the night. Listen to the scorpions.
My skull, I think, might look good in someone's bookshelf. As for my brain, I think it'd be best stored away in the bedrock with the nuclear waste. It only brings me trouble, anyhow.
