Depend on how you look at immortality...
I believe that the soul never dies. However, thinking of immortality as my-body-and-I-will-stay-and-wander-on-earth-forever, no thanks...
I'm totally all with you, Noemagoesa, absolutely!! Have you ever seen a really strange movie starring Goldie Han <sp?> called 'When Death Becomes Her'? There is no way I want to 'live' on this earth like a peice of petrified wood , a fossil, a coral without a stone or water.
Everyone, well perhaps not everyone, at some point in their life must think about death=partic. when the going gets tough, it's something that can happen suddenly, why not live for the now and enjoy life, there is soooo much one person can do in a lifetime, yet some of us aren't given that chance!
I will think about death come the time-if i ever know that is-i could be gone by the end of the week!-who knows-it happens, live each day like it's your last-it does get you through things and gives you a diff. perspective on life-i wish everyone thought this way-the world would be a much happier place!
Rather than people moaning and whinging about this, that and the other...can you tell i can't wait to get away from it all! lol!
... roll on october!
I just think about how valuable time is
The topic of death seems to keep popping up on this site. Does anyone crave immortality? Or are you just prepared to lay down quietly when your time comes?
I've had plenty of discussions about life and death in the last 16 months since my step-dad died.
I have friends that crave immortality. They are so curious about how the world is going to be in the future and are scared of missing out on something.
Me, on the other hand, have willed death to come to me at certain times in my life. Now life is good and although I don't want to live forever I'm not so eager to die. Sad to talk about but it's the truth.
My mum, now expecting to live the rest of her life on her own, claims she has nothing to live for anymore. Before my step-dad passed away you would never had heard that sort of thing from her but her entire perspective on life has changed - and not necessarily for the better from my point of view. When some people experience the loss of their partner they go through the "life's too short" thing, making a point of doing the things they wished they'd done. But my mum seems content, at this point in time anyway, to just live the days away - and she's only 53.
