Who Dies of Old Age?


i wonder how many people actually die of old age, in the world, and by country


vs whatever other terrible thing they die from


i would dare to say that most deaths are done in great suffering


what is dying of old age anyway


does it mean you simply depart in your sleep


i think that's the best way to go


and there is never a good or even biological reason that one's death should be untimely


imagine if society was such that every one got to announce when they die, and it wasn't something that you didn't know would happen


and everyone got to live to old age and simply by knowing they will be leaving soon, host a goodbye party


we really do hate each other


it's profoundly sad


because if we loved each other we would help each die other in a gentle and warm way


when it was time


but probably over 97% of deaths are premature, untimely, filled with pain and suffering and dread and all around misery for everyone connected


the measure of a sane and evolved society is the manner in which it allows people to leave


death really isn't so bad, and as terence said, has no sting in the final analysis


it's just we don't want to die in a somehow wrong, unintended, or painful way

I am nothing more than a passing ghost through the dream you call life.
