n.— «According to Mrs Wiigh-Masak’s method, which she has called “promession”—the promise to return to the earth what emerged from the earth—the dead body is frozen and dried, using liquid nitrogen. A mechanical vibration then causes the body to fall apart within 60 seconds before a vacuum removes the water.» —“Sweden’s new funeral rite—bodies freeze-dried, powdered and made into tree mulch” by Kate Connolly in Berlin Telegraph (U.K.) Sept. 28, 2005.
