      Please afterlife which I don't believe in, reveal yourself when I die and make me immortal and once again ignorant. Because I'd die if I ever had to stop existing. If this all makes sense Just hope I die without knowing I'm dying, that way I'll never die, because when I exist I will still be alive, but the moment I die I will no longer exist, so I will never die. Immortality achieved! (No, I'm not drunk, just trying to reason through this concept of non-existence)
      I have always thought that! Mind blown...

I really like this point, because essentially not knowing the meaning of life is just as bad as there being no meaning of life.
      Meaning and purpose aren't the same thing imo, but I understand what you're saying. I'd just hate to know folks were out there offing themselves because they couldn't find meaning on an individual lvl whereas their purpose on a collective lvl is plenty.

      More afraid of pain before death than anything. Perhaps the afterlife is filled with lucid dreams and candy. Yea, that'd be real nice...

      In a very nonsensical way, yes and no. I'm scared of the world around me disappearing and losing everything. I'm scared of never seeing the sun rise again or laughing with my friends again, someone hurting that I could have prevented or not just trying to help the world. But there's a little voice in me that doesn't really mind it. It almost likes it, honestly. I'm not religious in the least, but death seems so quiet and peaceful after a chaotic world that could easily pass as a Hell. And careless. Sorta like getting drunk in a lucid dream of darkness without consciousness? lol
      That doesn't mean I would deny a pill that makes me eternally immortal, though.

      I'm scared of being alive after dying, I mean, still having a conciousness but not a physical/spiritual/whatever world to be in, so you would be stuck in a limbo forever as time wouldn't either exist. Bad hours to think I guess.
      I like destruction and reality, and one invariably leads to the other.
