That's exactly how you'll feel in 2112.
I remember the year 1974 like I will remember the year 2074

I'm not so sure about that. With the advances in medicine there is a strong possibility that you will still be around and with all your faculties at the age of 99.

Unless your are saying that you have memories from your mother's womb?

Realistically spoken, I’ll think I'll never reach 2070...

Only if you masterbate while thinking of killing someone.

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.

Me too.
In my twenties I always thought I would have drunk myself into oblivion by the time I was 30.
In my thirties I always thought I would have drunk myself into oblivion by the time I was 40.
But then I thought... if I reached my objective, how would I know?

In my forties I always thought I would have drunk myself into oblivion by the time I was 50.

But now I am quite impressed with my hepatoprotective stack of milk thistle, resveratrol, curcumin, NAC, and SAM-e. Liver enzymes keep coming back lower mid-range every quarter whether I'm sober, hung over, or drunk.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Is it normal to be fascinated with death?
Yeah, I think it's normal. But being obsessed with it is not normal at all IMO.

I've always thought that death is the reason religions exist because humans want and need (?) to know what happens to us when we die:

People like or want to believe that we go somewhere else and that we will meet again.
Most people don't like the idea that when we die, that's it. We had no idea of absolutely nothing before we were born and we'll have no idea of nothing after we die.

Some believe they will come back as cows, some as another human beings, some others will be in heaven, with virgins, etc. etc. etc... the final reward for believers is
some kind of "eternal life". So in order to answer all those doubts religions exist and are needed for many people who won't accept our own mortality.

Instead of being fascinated with death we should be fascinated with life.

DISCLAIMER: If you find a message from me offensive, inappropriate, or disruptive, please ignore it.
If you don't know how to ignore a message, complain to me and I will be happy to demonstrate.
