Beyond metaphysics though, my and your destination are the same: death. Allow me to prefer the journey to its destination, in this case.
And what misunderstanding was that?
Quote:Not that I mind answering that, but to give a meaningful answer I'd have to explain about the years of experiences that lead up to it and that would take more time than we both are willing to spend.And what misunderstanding was that?
But the Cliff notes version is that I was once convinced that the destination was much like a continuation of life here. That depressed me so much that I wanted very badly to die in hopes that atheists were right and death was final. To get any nuance of that situation, keep in mind that my life here in 'normal' terms has been wonderful. I've gotten literally everything I wanted and more.
I wrote about it in a thread called "What it feels like at the last moments, before you die?". Sorry, I don't know the page it was on but I only made one post there. Edit: it's on last page, I made 2 posts, not 1.
"In heaven all the interesting people are missing." (Nietzsche)
Yeah, but Nietzsche's idea of heaven sucked. Mine did too for a while there, but fortunately I found out otherwise.
