You're going to die!
    #4201112 - 05/20/05 09:05 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

That's right. Some day, your breath will leave you, your heart will stop pumping blood, and your brain will shut down. All that you have achieved and worked for in this life will be gone forever. Anything you never tried in this life, you'll never get a chance to try. There will be no new opportunities in this world. What are you going to do about it?

Talk to you of course. :thumbup: :mushroom2:

Everyone is doing what they are capable of. If they were capable of more in this moment they would do it.

I have had a terminal condition for quite some time. Death is my constant companion.

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

There is no point, it just seems better than being sad all the time.

What are you going to do about it? Does it matter?

You could try to push against time, but that is a wall crushing us slowly that nothing can stop. Rather than waste my energy pushing against it, I'd rather just relax and let it guide me until it crushes my bones.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

what makes you think you're really alive now? You have no proof- this might be a hallucination caused by your currently shutting down brain, as your real self dies.




Mushman, fun? If you need fun, go get it. But don't assume fun is the answer.

From what I gather it seems likely that the land of the 'afterlife' will probably prove to be much more interesting in many ways compared to this relatively dense consensus reality most of us have long grown accustomed with.. so to some degree I think I am curiously kind of looking forward to it.

I would be like "Oh, not again! Well wait...I guess this isn't so bad" and just hope for another life with more productive circumstances then this one. The idea of death as been a complete end is ridiculous to me and flies in the face of everything we know about the universe.

What can i do about it? Im gonna live! Knowing that i will die makes every moment i breathe that much more important. As i grow, i realize how much the decisions i make effect my life and those around me. What else is there to do?

You're going to die!

Not me! I'm having my head frozen. I bought one of those do-it-yourself kits Jiggy recommended.  :thumbup:

Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.
