Science fails to recognize the single most potent element of human existance, letting te reighns go to the unfolding is faith. - System of a down from the song "Science"

One body, togetherness, I am just one part of a whole.
I am separated from my body and sent into isolation.
I can feel my body around me, but I am no longer a part of it.
It is torture.
Still in my solitude and torment I am banished to a freezing wasteland.
Slowly, I lose all sanity as I can no longer even feel my body around me.
I have never felt so alone.
Hollow, I am nothing but a shell.
When I think I can take it no longer I am pulled from this frozen wasteland and removed from my chamber of isolation and again reunited with the rest of my body, but I cannot feel it.
Everything around me is dead.
Slowly something trickles over me and I feel life begin to return, and my body begins to awaken.
Ten, I am crushed by something that crunches my entire being and I cease to be.
But sadly, this was just another day in the life of an ice cube.

Ever contemplated the life of inanimate objects? What if the simplest things were sentient?
