The Gravediggers relate to time as the ultimate equivocator. Time humbles all men because they end up in the same place. The gravediggers say that whether one is a king or a beggar they end up in the dirt. Time even things out. If you fallow their food chain logic a king sooner or later may go through the digestive system of a beggar. (Worm eats dead king- fish eats worm-beggar catches fish....) This actually really inspires hamlet when he talks about Alexander the Great becoming a cork!
