    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    You know, usual life things.

    I think death appeals to me because it's not really an end. There's a deep desire in me for my mind and self to just disappear into that void, and just be subsumed in something greater. I want my body to be part of a tree or grass eaten by horses or a star or a hummingbird's wing. There's nothing so grand in life that it ultimately is worth more than the misery of it. The beauty that causes you wonder will fade. The things you love will ultimately disappear. And the fulfillment we derive from that which we strive in the hopes of defining purpose or meaning will always remain just out of reach. All life is suffering, as the Buddhist would put it.

    Fundamentally, I equate death with freedom. I'll make the most of my time while I'm here, but I look forward just as much to clocking out.

    As Epicurus said: "As long as we are, death isn't; and as soon as death is, we aren't."

    Therefore, there is no reason to fear death, because death cannot confront us.

    Sometimes. But then I fear most everything (my enneagram type is Six).

    Do you fear what lay after death? The abyss, heaven, hell, paradise, reincarnation?
    No, I'm cool about that--looking forward to a higher-plane life that makes this earthly world look incredibly dark and dreary in comparison.

    Or do you fear leaving this place behind, not being able to watch the grand show play out?
    What grand show? I've grown used to this world, so it'll probably be hard to let go of my attachments. Other than that, farewell to this warring planet. Maybe I'll be back, maybe not.

    Or do you welcome it, awaiting the great beyond to finally understand?
    Why should I understand any better just because I've translated to another plane? I'm working on my understanding right now. Waiting seems foolish.


    I'm more concerned about practical earthly matters than death itself. For instance, I've always acted as if I'm going to live forever, so I've made no will, nor any arrangements for disposal of my body. I also have very little in the way of human and financial resources to take care of me if it gets to where I can't take care of myself. I hope that when my time comes I can go quickly without much suffering or being a burden to anyone. But I haven't done a thing about it. I just hope.

    Yeah, but what did reason ever have to do with fear?
