See, I already KNOW I'm going to die... Possibly soon... so what I'm doing now is what I'd be doing.

Living my life.. doing the things I love.

I think there's a passage in the Code Of The Samurai about how freeing it is, when one realizes that one is, in fact, already dead.


Seems a pointless waste, to me, to live your life any other way....

"Spread thy seed"
I think it was Schopenhauer who said (And was echoed by David Benatar) something to the effect, "The best of all possible gifts is the gift of having never been born."

Donate as much spunk as I can. Both internally and in things to be frozen.
Go kill some bad pimps and drug dealers and rapists.
Give a little prep talk to schools about morality and death!
Find worthy people to give my gear to.
Max my visa by getting a Darth Vader suit.

Can you explain that? I don't understand what it's implying?

I think I would tell all my friends how much they matter to me, find wonderful homes for my two cats, my beloved guitars, my two cars. Then I would probably take some serious action against some 'anti-humanity' types/organizations (which shall remain nameless) that I despise. If you're goin' out, you might as well go out BIG!

Rent the movie "Ghost Dog"... It 'shows' you what it means better than words on a CRT could ever explain...

There is definitely something to that. In a previous life experience, we were told "you're already dead, but it's up to you to determine how and where you meet it".

Live life like everyday is your last, let those who matter know they matter.

I HOPE you're not talking about a "past-life" reincarnation thing...

What a load of bullflop!

But I do have superpowers! Anyway, I guess I am doing it, I live my life on my terms and I went thru an incredible yet trying experience that most wouldn't even consider, just so I could be me, it was that or death and I had been close to death on a few occasions. I live for the day, or more likely, the weekend. The future is now, don't wait until the kids are grown, or you retire, or the house is paid for, etc. Just get out there and do it!

Ain't nobody gonna stop me now!

How do you know? Where's your evidence?

The atheist has no more hard proof than the theist. That's why I remain a devout agnostic.

If you expect me to change my mind I would demand the same as I would from that pesky Witness who wakes me up on weekend mornings.

Wow, guess I should have phrased that one differently, I was referring to a previous line of work that had a much higher risk factor involved in it than what I do now.

I've seen enough in my life and buried enough friends to beleive that a person needs to live each day like it's the last. You don't have to buy into it. Different strokes for different folks.

That's your choice and you're welcome to it.

There is enough evidence like leading questions and 'planted' memories that call ALL so-called "evidence" in support of "Past Lives" into more than enough question

cry
have the most fun i can have with the people i love
stop taking things for granted

Nothing different than I'm doing now. Hang out with friends, play music.
Not that I want to die, but I know where I'm going when I do, and I can't wait to meet the big JC.:food-smiley-004:

You goal is to meet John Carpenter? I mean sure, he's made some good movies, but he's not the end all and be all.
