The one reality that we all face is not one people enjoy considering.
I encourage you to sit down and think about it though.
You may find it puts a number of other things in perspective.
For what would we be without this time and space?
Whatever you do, do not fall prey to this mirage of “limitless time.”
It’s a lie.
Death is impossible for us to fathom: it is so immense, so frightening, that we will do almost anything to avoid thinking about it. Society is organized to make death invisible, to keep it several steps removed. That distance may seem necessary for our comfort, but it comes with a terrible price: the illusion of limitless time, and a consequent lack of seriousness about daily life. We are running away from the one reality that faces us all.
