What is a dead man?
Is a dead man a man who is dead? Is a dead man a man who became dead? Perhaps he was once considered alive, but is no longer considered that way, and the absence of life is death? Is a dead man not a man, but simply dead? What would make the dead men, such that we could describe the dead as men and the dead who are men are dead men? Or is it that there are no dead men, for there is only the dead, and to be a man is to not be dead? Perhaps then it follows that to be a man is to be alive, as such that there is an absence of death around that man, and thus the question of dead men is ironic, sarcastic or otherwise a paradox? Or is a dead man something other than either the dead or a man, but another concept that follows the ideas embodied in both men and the dead?

What makes a man dead?
Does the absence of all life in every cell of a man's body make that man dead? Does the lack of pumping blood in his veins make him dead? Or the still heart, or the clot in his blood? Perhaps what makes a man dead is the failure of his organs, the poison in his veins or the electricity that still hums through his nerves? What if it was the thorn in his side, the knife in his back or the lead that sits still in the roof of his mouth? Maybe instead what makes a man dead is the dullness in his eyes, the lack of emotions on his face, and the stillness of his body? Does it make a man dead when he does not lift his own fingers, when he does not breath, or when he doesn't speak? Does the refusal to eat, drink or willingly sustain himself make a man dead? Is a man who has no reason to live made dead? If he has no desire to live, is he made dead, or is it no desire at all? Is what makes a man dead when he sees no life in his future, or when he sees nothing at all in his future? If nothing lies ahead of the man and he is dead, then does it make a man dead when nothing lies before him? Or is it that everything lies behind a dead man?

Either way, it matters not to the dead man

Dead and Man are simply two words that society has given meaning. Its a way to describe a concept to another person with physical or logistical clarity. A dead man. A dead woman. A dead cat. A dead dog. Etc. Assigning any further word play to it isnt philosophical or deep, its just pretentious. A pretentious, rambling opinion.
