We are already dead.
When our end comes – and it will come – we will either die in agony or by surprise.
It will probably involve a loss of dignity and bedpans. Even if science is somehow able to press the snooze button on life, it’s still finite.
What is there to fear? You know that you’re going to meet a grim and unfortunate ending.
Why stay in bed? Why worry about approbation?
We are already dead. As we postpone death with life, let’s not do it in a fearful way.
The worst case scenario is a certainty. It’s a virtual guarantee. All we can do is live with passion and dignity.
