Being dead is like being stupid. You have no idea you are and it’s only painful for the people around you.


My dad solved this for me when I was a kid…he asked me if I remember being born, I said no. He asked if I remembered before I was born, I also said no. So, he said, it’s just like that, you just aren’t. There’s nothing there to be afraid of, nothing to experience.


I grew up catholic and honestly the idea of eternity used to give me panic attacks. I, like you, sometimes get bummed around the thoughts of cessation of consciousness, but then I think about an eternity in heaven or hell which sounds worse, and then permanent unconsciousness doesn’t seem bad at all 😅


It’s better than the alternative. Eternity is hell – no matter how you look at it.


“I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it” – Mark Twain. Maybe you’ve heard this quote before, but I find it to tackle this issue in an interesting way. We weren’t around in the distant past when humanity was first emerging. And Unfortunately, we won’t be around to see what incredible feats humanity achieves in the distant future, either. But we are here now. And we are just in time – to love, to explore, to discover, and to soak up as much of life as we can possibly muster. So live your best life for the here and now – and for as long as you can! Embrace new opportunities, reach out to others, and leave a good mark on the world we call home. Live life to the fullest and cherish every moment. When looking back, don’t regret that it’s over – be glad that it happened. “We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born”. – Richard Dawkins
