what's your opinion of death?
scary? not scary?
what are your thoughts about it?

@hamilton,
It appears to be a rather humbling experience, at least physically.
I sometimes think I'd rather be dead than dying, but then, aren't we all, dying?
So I guess, when the dying becomes unbearable, then I'd rather be dead.

Sudden death soon is something I want to avoid while I get my worldly goods and various thoughts in order, re dispersal to family and friends.

A lingering painful dying is very unappealing, besides being expensive, and I can imagine then wishing for death to be coming soon. I can also envision not feeling that way, wanting to keep on going, seeing the preciousness of life all around me.

I've a preference for knowing, for at least a bit, so I can deal with it mentally, emotionally.
Or, at least I think I do.

I'd rather there be an exception made in my case.

@djjd62,
Sorry to repeat myself, but dying we will do, but there will be no death for us. After dying there will be no one who is in a state of death (neither subject nor predicate). I have no fear of the situation after my dying. Before birth was no problem; after life should be no more problematical.

I think death sucks but if nobody can live forever how ya gonna stop them? As jl says, once we are dead, we will simply not exist. So, I don't mind so much, if it will only give me time to finish wearing out this body, and not make me suffer overmuch when my time comes.

@hamilton,
What's the worse he can do, kill me?

He's death, that's what he does.

Plus I have found in life you get respect for standing your ground, maybe it's the same in death.

@hamilton,
DISCLAIMER: im not suicidal

I have no fear of death. If my life ended tomorrowis be fine with it. I feel like I've done what needs doing here anyway. Its a part of life, and we all die some day. It all comes from fear. We fear death because it means this **** is over, and who knows what's on the other side. And I guess you could think about all the things you may have potentially missed out on. Well imagine what we could be missing out on by being alive?
