, kind of got me thinking.
The weird question was, 'are you afraid of dying/death'.
Well obviously, hell # yes! Scared out of my mind of it!
Now, I read the multiple post, of 'oh it's useless to be afraid of it'. And the other BS replies.
I'm not in denial, I'm going to die, and that's going to be a very crappy day in my book!
Then I started thinking about it a little more, and life, is like a party, but your sorry # is going home early, real freakin early.
Party starts at 10, and you know you're leaving somewhere around 10:30...
But life, is a little different, you'll never hear the story of when paul puked on john, and the cops broke in, and everything went to crap, and
you've got to bail someone out.
That's not there, you'll never know, you'll never see, you for the most part, and the worst part, Won't Experience.
It just seems scary, the things we, everyone reading this, YOU, will miss.
The things you work for in your life, you have a very good chance of not seeing the end product.
I mean, most likely in opposition to ATS as a whole, we'll never see the end of the world, now, this may be a good thing, but we fascinate and
romanticize the idea of something.... that we'll never experience. How bad does that suck!
It'd be like knowing the Lightbulb was going to be invented, but knowing at the same time, you'll never see it's greatness, you'll never
experience it, you'll never see one, and better yet, you have no idea really what it'd be.
The things, that we'll miss, are astronomical.
You can't help but see, the past, and stand in awe. At what they've missed.
200 hundred years ago, you'd look up at the moon, and say, one day, we will walk on it. Knowing, you will never walk on it, you'll never hear about
it, you won't see it.
All you can do is know something big is going to happen, and know that, you won't be when it comes.
Knowing you're best friend is getting married in 6 months, and knowing, you'll be dead in 5.
Knowing you're sister is pregnant, and will give birth in 8 months, you'll be dead in 5.
Again, on a larger scale. We may find the cure for cancer (conspiracy aside) and hundreds of years from now, they'll look back in awe, thinking, how
many lives could of been saved, if we'd of figured this out earlier, how many tears wouldn't of been shed, had we known.
Here's the bring you down of the day.
As far as I see it, we're all watching a movie, and will never see the ending, and the worst part is, we know we won't.
No climax, no pinnacle, no anything.
The worst part is, the myopic view of everyone on earth, in the incredible ignorant view of the earth.
Look at any youtube video, honestly pick anyone of them.
Millions of people, bitching about their race, their gay status, their political views.
All the time, NASA can't 'afford' to watch for earth destroying 'asteroids'....
But people feel they have a ton of energy, to combat bull #.
Maybe, it's just cause lately, everyone around me is dying, or recently #ed out of time.
But I can't stop thinking of my death, peril, personal apocalypse.
I know of those, that can stop thinking of it, and I wonder how, how you can mentally avoid the inevitable.
What sickens me the most of it, is they say to me, that it's going to happen, no need to fret over it.
Well then this is what you've got, and why the hell aren't you living it like your last day then, does life mean that little to you, to have your
one chance and blow it.
Also inspired by another thread, about doing 10 compliments to strangers. Great thread by the way.
So here we go, on to the main topic after the long and almost estranged intro.
When we die, granted we have 20-60 years, straining for the young members.
What will we miss out on?
