Self-parody department: "Consider the Chandrasekhar Limit as a jurisprudence"

The Albany Law Review publishes what looks to be a remarkable satire of leftist law review articles, but for the resume of the author that indicates that, no, this is actually the thought process of a tenured law professor. (h/t A.S.):

Consider the Chandrasekhar Limit as a jurisprudence: Death appears as a peculiar shadow, a one-way surface, an event horizon. There is no exit, just a dearly-departed-shaped nothing. Some things are worse than death. How dark can it be? What is the blackness of blackness? The black hole of science and of the fiction of science has a one-way surface, an event horizon, into which objects can fall, but out of which nothing comes, not even light. Is death like this? And what could be worse? Is there a death that is more--and therefore worse--than death? Primitive accumulation is mass murder beyond the limit.
