If given the chance to see other peoples lifespans with the power such as the Shinigami eyes, what would you do? For example, you notice someone young but their number is about to hit zero due to some bizarre accident, would you try to save that person or just let the clock hit 0? Also your lifespan would not be cut in half or anything like that by having this power. I was just trying to think of an alternative way this could be used. In Death Note they use it to end peoples lives, but what if it was used to expand the life of others? Anyway, let me know your thoughts.

Well if you're going by Death Note, you'd die if you did that.



Wouldnt wanna cut my lifespan in half, forget



It's too big a power to give to humans. We'd abuse it and probably monetize it somehow, and then off that make it some widespread global economy or something. That's just what we do....

Completely blow out all the rules made by Death Note. This is just if you had the eyes with no strings attached. You're free to use them how you'd like.

So in that case yeah I'd want them. But I'd also wanna see more about a person. Like if they like or dislike you, how much they like you. Stuff like that.

Win over everyone.

I guess it would depend on the person. Like the whole idea of Light being 'Kira' 'God' was to save the world and make it a peaceful place. So I mean you could save the people that are innocent and let the ones who's guilty run out of time.

sure, if there are no consequences why not save a few people? I'd be a hero.

Arguably, if someone were to be granted this kind of power, they may have been put in that position to avert fates; however, I don't have much of a taste for screwing around with timelines/fates, so I'd more than likely bite my lip and do nothing. I'm leery of potential ramifications, and whether or not it's even possible to alter people's deaths (example; the means may possibly change, but they still die, or someone else is forced to die in their place).

*Remembers the movie "The Creation of Lying" where the guy tells the chick to sleep with him or the world would end*

Hmm.....use it as an excuse to get laid....nah, I'm not that type of guy.

So what you're seeing is the lifespan without your intervention? So when you save them it just, like, jumps up to a higher number?

I don't think i'd want such a power. It would essentially make it so that you are constantly aware of death and mortality. Literally, every person you see would bring thoughts about death. I think that would be too psychologically damaging for me personally.

However, if I did choose to take the ability, i'm honestly not sure if I would use it to save people. I mean, I might try, but again ~ being surrounded by death so much would probably overwhelm me to the point where I would think "There's just too much". I might try to save a few people. Like if I see someone at a cafe or something, I might try to have a chat with them and maybe alter what they would do that day. I don't think i'd follow them around and try to save them though.

Might be scary as well if you're in a restaurant or a bank or something and all of a sudden you see a large group of people with the exact same short lifespans.

Just seems too depressing considering the limited power you have as a person to really do anything.

See the lifespan of others and then become a fortune teller to truly disturb people when all my "predictions" come true.

And make a lot of money while doing so.
