I started this thread because Death is the one thing no one wants to ever talk about because everyone "knows" (guesses) they are going to die. It's the one constant and the one thing everyone has in common. No one can agree if we "exist", what being conscious is, if reality is "real" or an "illusion", if "God" exists, what morals are, if aliens exist, if we are subjective or objective, if evolution is true, if science is legit, is time real, etc, etc, etc.
But if there is one thing everyone does "know", it's they will die, even if they don't believe it. We know death and we know we can't escape death, no matter how many ideas we come up with to try and find an alternate solution.
We will always know our own mortality, so we base our lives and do what we do, knowing we won't be doing it forever. We feel emotion because we know we won't feel emotion forever. We find love as fast as we can and spend our lives striving for it, knowing one day, we won't know that feeling. We do "crazy" and "exciting" things because we know that the feeling won't last forever. We settle down knowing life is too short to be doing "crazy" things. I can keep going on, but I won't.
Death is the absolute constant of a human. It's known even if it doesn't want to be know. How can that not be the motivation of our lives?
