Would you rather die happy in five years or die unhappy in sixty years? I think I'd prefer to live longer without any happiness in my life. What do you think?

Cash or credit?

Probably die happy. It depends on how unhappy I would be for those sixty years. I have no problem with committing suicide if things get really bad though.

Being 20 and only having another 5 years would suck because someone who was 40 has already had so many more experiences and has an advantage in the situation.

And of course without hindsight of what you've proposed, in a natural situation you always have the potential to be happy with time so suicide wouldn't be a great option realistically, so don't be thinking I'm promoting it for all you sabois and sadgurls.

Depends entirely on the conditions of the unhappiness.

Your inquiry is based on one having the knowledge that they will be unhappy in 60 years correct?

Because if one has that kind of knowledge of the future then surely they would know what it was that made them unhappy and have a chance to correct that.

Personally I'm looking forward to being a grumpy old man

Nah the cruelty of being happy and having to give that up would suck. Live unhappy, as most of us do, in the hopes of being happy.

This question interested me and I have given it a small amount of thought, so: if it's the 'innate' brand of chronic depression, I'm gounna go ahead and say those five glorious years. Though the life instinct kicks in fairly sharpish, I would imagine, so really it's going to be a coin flip due to broken reason.

If it's your standard brand of misery, or just mild chronic depression or better yet simply the odd bout of acute depression then I say the sixty years. The only condition I would add to that is that those sixty years only count if the time spent working is either in some way fulfilling or if not does not take a 'disproportionate' amount of your life spent trying to sustain whatever comforts keep you from the more serious forms of depression. If those conditions are not met, then revert to the five years - living to work is not in my view living in any existentially worthwhile sense unless one gains from it.

That said, why are we happy? Surely there's a chemical imbalance, situational change or denial of reality that's happening to make it happy? If it's the latter then I revert to the sixty years.

Live "unhappily" for 60 years. Happiness is mental, no matter what happens to me or other people you can't force "unhappiness" on me. I could become an absurdist and be content with everything "bad" that is happening to me. I can even try to maintain a positive attitude and try to turn my life around (is that allowed in that 2nd option?).
It is likely you'll be miserable, it is likely you'll suffer emotional and/or physical pain, but there is a chance you can endure it and find something else to put your mind into to try and make your life (and maybe the world) better.

If you die, you dead bro, can't do anything of the sort.

No point in me living if I can't be happy. Might as well have one grand spectacle of happiness before going out.

I mean it's a pretty big deal if you can't even find joy in doing something simple like watching a comedy for the next 60 years.

i like to think of life and death as the same event
like imagine we are all living in the same time / moment
people who died "thousands of years ago" are still with us in this "moment"
and when we die we are still in this moment, only not aware...

so i'd choose one happy life

If I lived happily for 5 years then I'd be unhappy cus I'd die in such a short time. If I lived unhappily 60 years then I'd still be unhappy. So fuck it.
