Funny how we as a human love to live so much that we’ve forgotten that we are going to die someday. This is not true, I was just typing random words that sounds correct. I think the fact is that we think about death all the time. Probably, we think about death as much as we think about sex. Agree? Disagree?
For me, death is my destiny.
Everybody will die one day. But why do we die? We die because as a species, we can’t regenerate our broken cells forever. We get mutation on every cell division that eventually they lose the ability to split farther. After that, our organs start to break down because the cells started to die away. And eventually, our heart stop beating and we drift into oblivion.
There is something interesting about death, though. It’s mysterious and alluring. We know that we will die one day but we don’t know how it will happen. We don’t know when or where. We don’t even know how much time we have so we can start planning to do things that can fit in this lifespan of us. And some people just can’t wait to find out for himself, and some are too attached to this world that they don’t want to die.
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” – Mahatma Gandhi
