Eutrepismus (eu-tre-pis’-mus): Numbering and ordering the parts under consideration. A figure of division, and of ordering.
There are supposedly two stages to an organism’s existence: 1. Living. 2. Dying. Nevertheless, living is dying and dying is living. There is a third term that addresses the apparent contradiction: Waiting.
