    Default Thoughts of Impending Doom

    Does anyone ever have these? It's not like I consciously think about them, but they're always floating around in the back of my mind. Maybe it's because I had biblical prophecy preached to me all growing up. I will go extended periods of time without contemplating the end of the world, but then other times I get this feeling that another world war is so immenent which will destroy most of humanity or make the earth uninhabitable or miserable for the people who do survive. It kind of puts a damper on my optimism.

    This is what happens when you let people teach history to kids and then tell them its doomed to repeat itself. Then they get all kinds of fancy new ideas in their heads, what with the H-bombs and the fancy cameras and whatnot....

    See I often have dreams along these lines... I don't know if I'm just weird but in some ways it actually cheers me up... Because it puts everything into perspective... Know what I mean?
    ... couldn't drag me away

    The camera picture is a joke to lighten the mood of my otherwise depressing thread.

    Interesting. I don't really fear death as much as a potential afterlife.

    yeah, sometimes. Especially when I'm depressed. i just try to remember the world has been "ending" since the beginning and try not to worry about something i perceive to be highly probable.

    As much as I wish I did, I really have no control over the outcome and being overly preoccupied with such thoughts isn't going to change that. Like you said, it puts a damper in optimism, which is likely to put a damper my motivation to do what i actually AM capable of doing to help the condition of people right now.

    so for me it's just a matter of answering the question of how productive it is to expend the time and emotional energy into worrying about it? The answer is always "not at all".

    I have thought of this - much more when I was young though. Had one really exciting dream that I still remember parts of and it was a long time ago.

    There is no such thing as afterlife, people... One chance to get things done is this one life you're living, so don't waste it!
