For me, it depends on exactly what I'm surviving from.
In many instances, I may not want to survive. If it were something catastrophic that
affected the entire continent, I don't know I would want to spend the rest of my life "surviving". I wouldn't want to survive a large scale nuclear
attack. I wouldn't want to survive a meteor blast that caused a new ice age. And most of all, I wouldn't want to survive another Obama term.
On a more serious note, and I'm being dead serious here, people seem to fear death far too much. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy life, but personally I
think it's overrated. People get so wrapped up in "things", like material goods, going places, entertainment, anything that soothes the ego (in this
sense, I refer to the ego as the survival mechanism we all have. Virtually everything we do, whether we realize it or not, is in some way, a means of
survival, and that is a function of the ego). Once we understand that life is just one big illusion, then "surviving" is just another illusion. I
don't believe "death" is the "end" of anything; it is simply another phase of our eternal existence. So, for me, I'd rather move on to the next phase
than suffer endlessly in this one we call life.
