So, I recently cam across this. In particular this part:

Lying on my death bed, I probably won’t remember anything from the tens of thousands of hours I spent watching TV and surfing the internet during my life.


And got me to think about I've been wasting my life away doing stupid trivial things that don't matter. It's made me a bit depressed and now I'm thinking I need a life style change. Something that when I'm on my deathbed I can look back and admire and remember what I did. Any thoughts, Pit?

And yes, ironically, I'm posting about this on an internet forum. Lol

Once you die, all your thoughts you have inside your head will be forever lost. That's to say, if your mind is filled with anything worthwhile in the first place. A rather depressing thought I guess.

Pain cuts harder than joy. It's not about remembering the good things, it's about not having bad things to look back on and regret.

Very depressing indeed. The best way to avoid it could be to leave behind some kind of legacy, but not everyone does. I'd like to think it can be done through hard work, but I know there's a good deal of luck involved. I guess I'm just scared that I won't be able to leave one behind...

Who cares whether you leave a legacy or not behind. Unless you're one of those crazies who thinks there's an after life and you'll get to hear people talk all about your accomplishments while you sit on some cloud OR you think you'll be born as a different person and find a wikipedia article about your past self when you're 10 and be delighted to know it was you, you will be dead and you won't be able to know the joy of leaving a legacy behind.

What I figured out is that once you're dead you don't care. The end of a lifetime and all that is gone doesn't matter.

But there was an experiment where the doctor(s) measured the patients' weigh before and after the death on a calibrated bed. They lost 3/4 of an ounce after death.

What was that? Their soul? Spirit? Who knows.

I'm just making sure I write down a lot of my feelings and thoughts. Either in small quotes or novels, or songs. Just so that my thoughts are used in some way. Not that I really care about a legacy or so, but it would be nice to know that the thoughts that I had and my ideas and opinions are still there in the future. Not that they need to be attached to my as a part of who I am or so. I'm not about my ego.

But it would be sad if your ideas and thoughts just disappeared along with your body.

That was their bowels loosening, basically pinching a terminal death loaf... Sounds like grandma crapped a 21g-er.

EDIT: Jesus Christ... reading through this thread. Everybody; grow up. I feel like the mean adult telling the oldest joke in the world to a room full of kids for the first time..

ready?

Life sucks, and then you die.

This is exactly how I feel. And no I don't believe in after-life or reincarnation.

I don't plan on ever being on a death bed, let alone dying. If I do for some reason die though, it won't be from some boring ailment that will put me on a deathbed. I want to die in a forest or on the plains of Africa.

Doesn't a body get heavier after Death?

I've thought about this, but we cant all live our lives to the fullest every second. There's always gonna be some time that we may have wasted, its natural.

How much time you misuse, is up to you

A quick google search reveals it was only one doctor, the majority of the patients in the experiment died of tuberculosis, and the experiment hasn't been reproduced succesfully.

Nothing matters after you die. AT ALL. You stop thinking and everything you had ever done amounts to nothing, because you are nothing. You stopped existing.

Just do whatever makes you happy. It's better than having to think about sadness and pain when you're dying.

Pretty much this. I sincerely doubt you will be thinking much before you die, probably about how much pain you're in or how your body feels a little different than usual. Grow up people, this isn't elementary school anymore. All that "life flashing before your eyes" stuff is just a damn fairy tale that became widespread because people are afraid of death.

Personally I like to think that when we go, we go through a phase of a serene release into nothingness, and then we're born again and live out our lives in exactly the same way into infinity. So ya, I try to make it count.

Aw, yeah.

Anyway, who cares? You got one shot, try and make the most of it. If you don't, it doesn't matter cos you will ultimately die anyway.

Life is chock full of trivial things that don't matter. Don't feel bad simply because it's easy to kill time nowadays. If lazing doesn't appeal to you find something fulfilling and productive to do with your days. I'm sure you'll find a calling or whatever.

I read a quote once that went something like,

"This is your flash of life. You're born, you live, and then you die, and in a flash you enter an eternity of nothingness, a scary concept but it's reality. I believe not that we are physical beings having a spiritual experience, but spiritual beings having a physical experience. So what will you do with your flash of life?"
#35
Thanks for the link. I thought this part was also very good

"Lying on my death bed, I’ll be so glad I spent half my life being angry at the government, big corporations, my stupid neighbors, idiot drivers, my ungrateful family, the communists, the liberals, the illegal aliens, and everyone else who is ruining my life. I couldn’t do anything about any of it, but at least I died a bitter old unhappy man. That will show them."

It's the only thing that really makes sense to me.. What really sparked this theory was the fact that I pretty much experience deja-vu everyday, and sometimes can foresee my future in dreams through symbols and fractals in my dreams. Very difficult to translate but the clues are there nonetheless...

I try to not get too depressed about the idea of nothingness, i mean before i was born i didn't care cus i wasn't here. I do often wonder about any 'afterlife' of any kind , but it's all just gonna be speculation untill i die and somehow am still around or not, we'll see.

I don't wanna think too much about being on my deathbed, i hope i'm with the people who matter to me at the time if i do end up going that way.
