  1. IF you really conciously thought about out, and understood its reality at a fundamental level, you would scream uncontrollably.

    -The Death of Ivan Ilyich
  2. i found this out first hand after a bad trip on unmentionables. oh, how so true it is.
  3. Man I dont really understand this thread but I can relate to the bad trip on unmentionables :(
  4. Imagine watching your death in television decades ahead of time. How creepy would it be? Puts on a whole new perspective.
  5. imo the only thing that thinking about death before it comes accomplishes is wasting a little bit of life. lol

    i mean, we're inevitably all gonna think about it. it is natural afterall, and currently unavoidable. but you can only go so far with thinking about it philosophically before it becomes a fundamentally worthless endeavor.

    Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn't actually get you anywhere.
    -Frank Zappa
  6. LOL everything you do is a waste of life.....your just racing to your grave no matter what you do.
  7. i realize this. but i personally would rather spend my time on certain things than others.
  8. Death really isn't such a bad thing though.

    I just hope to die peacefully.
