Excellent question stewiegriffin.
Yes, without a doubt, I would love to know when I am going to die. For me, that knowledge would fundamentally change the remaining time of my
existence. However long, or short, that may be.
Not knowing when I am going to depart forces me to live by a time line full of assumptions. For example: I currently believe that I will live, to at
the very least, approximately sixty years of age. It is based upon this expectation that I work towards my long term & short term goals. If I were to
find out, that I only had a year left to live, a complete reevaluation would have to happen. Things that I wish to accomplish within thirty-some
years, would not remain the same, if I only had one year of life. There would be no time to fritter away nor to hold myself back with. I would say,
do, & be whatever my soul wanted.
But most importantly, I could not comprehend a more perfect conclusion, than to slowly leave this life amongst the precious company of those that I
love & adore. If it were not possible to be in such company, than I would be most content to slip away, whilst doing something that filled my heart
with a certain sense of joy.
