    Define "worth". Seeing as how eternity is forever, you may as well see how much life you can take and see it through to the end.

    when the above is positive life is positively inclined and such thoughts are unthinkable, when the above is negative life is negative and such thoughts are thought about. its a stress response to the environment, social and internal system as a balance to the way you experience situational life. the mind body connection.

    Exactly, yes!

    That depends, if you think your life is worth living then I guess it is.

    It would be presumptuous to believe that all lives are worth living.

    Too bad a priori logic doesn't always hold much value in the real world. Ti

    Descartes was definitely onto something though, and he probably got a lot more done than Camus. However, I don't think Descartes fucked quite as many women...
