When a baby is born, it is delivered into the world in a bag of life, the placenta. From the moment the placenta is separated from the fetus’ body, the amniotic sac, which is the outer layer of the
placenta, represents this bag of life and will also be the bag the newborn will use in the future. Until that moment, the bag is preserved in the amniotic sac safe (ASS), waiting for the owner to reunite with it and design it to its personal preference. The bag is mortal, as well as its owner. To prolong its life expectancy, it has to be placed and treated as an extension of the body.
