You really don't have much choice. I mean we're all going to die, so you might as well resign yourself to the fact. It doesn't mean you chuck it all in if you're fortunate to still have your health. I mean Jimmy Carter's 93 and he's still active as Hell.

I don't know what happens when you die. My gut feeling is there is no afterlife either, reincarnation maybe, or even Nietzsche's theory that you're condemned to repeat the same life over and over again, but whatever happens, you're going to lose all memory anyway.

Anyhow, a friend of mine has an old saying. Life sucks then you die. That pretty much sums it all up.

I was speaking purely from a view of cynicism but in most cases I've seen personally, the older people I know can talk about the concept of death with no fear or misconception and they still all have alot going for them

Nietzsche's thought is more about how if time were infinite, everything would happen again at some point and this infinitely many times. He doesn't propose some form of continuity of consciousness.

I hope they make a sitcom where Occulthawk adopts The Batlord, and they both try to out cynic each other in between life lessons.

I'm not sure how I'll feel when I'm old or if I'll even make it that far, but I have a lot of **** that I wanna do. With that said, and I know the OP said that this wasn't a suicide thread, but I think Martin Manley makes a good case for leaving on your own terms while you're still on top of your own ****.

Nietzsche just said that it makes sense to live your life as if that were the case. He didnít actually believe that kind of fairy tale ****.
