I would be interested and appreciate your views on death, the questions it brings into our life, the way it changes our world.

How does it affect the idea of our own mortality?

How does it alter our priorities and values in life?

The impact on our spirituality, for those who hold beliefs?

how does it affect our own "personal" identity?

Funny how that works..

by maecuff In reply to Really makes the other "s ...

The older you get, the less you want. I really do not care about collecting a bunch of stuff. (Shoes and handbags aside).

My husband and I bought a table at a yard sale 10 years ago for $5 and it's still our dining room table, along with mismatched chairs we've collected over the years. I keep looking around at our furniture (nothing matches) and wondering when we're going to get grown up things. I've pretty much decided the answer to that is, NEVER. I'd rather spend the money DOING something than HAVING something.

When I die

by M_a_r_k In reply to Death

I'm going to heaven. I'll be waving at you all heathens down here on earth still paying taxes.
Since I'm going to heaven, I'm not worried at all about dying. I'm more worried about what I leave behind. Like my dogs. Who's gonna take care of them? And what will happen to my TR account?

Death of a loved one doesn't affect my spirituality. When it's your time to go, you're gonna go. A person's death may be tragic to the people left behind. But if you believe in such things, the person will be going to heaven if he or she believes also. So his or her death is a great thing for him or her. We cry when someone dies because we'll miss that person and maybe we're selfish. We want the person to stay here with us in this living **** known as earth rather than going to eternal bliss in heaven.

Your TR account

by DMambo In reply to When I die

It'll be a slow decline out of the top 100. Each passing day you will drop until one sad day, there's just a single bar in the graphic and you're just another unused account. It's too sad to even contemplate.

Fare thee well, MARK. You will be missed.

A long slow death

by M_a_r_k In reply to Your TR account

I'd rather go out quickly. In a blaze of glory. Or die in my sleep. I don't want to wither away. Same goes for my TR account. I'm going to plant a logic bomb in my TR account that is set to go off on as soon as I keel over. I'm taking as many people with me as I can. haha I plan on living another 60 or 70 years, though. I wonder if TR will still be around then.

But you aren't..

by maecuff In reply to A long slow death

going out in a blaze of glory. You're already dying a long slow death. Isn't that what we all do the moment we're born.

I'm just a f*cking ray of sunshine...

What if I decide to strap myself to a rocket tomorrow and propel myself to the sun? In that case, I'll either die a slow death (from cold, lack of oxygen or nuclear radiation) or die in a blaze of glory if my rocket explodes.
