Annihilate: destroy utterly; obliterate
Annihilation: from the Latin verb for "reduced to nothing"
Death: The end of the life of a person or organism; the destruction or permanent end of something
Are they the same? You tell me.
Don't mistake this for something more than it is. I just think often about reducing something or someone to nothing. Does death reduce you to nothing?
Can a person annihilate some part of themselves and live to rebuild that part? Or does annihilate suggest there is no return?
Can annihilation ever be a good thing?
