I find it intriguing.

I don't know. In the end, existing always comes with this feeling of intrigue and/or fear. It's just part of the uselessness of living.


Oh shit, i laughed way too hard at this.

Hate is still the proper word to summarise my feelings toward death. It robs people of both their potential and their loved ones, it slows human progress by stripping the world of its skilled tradesmen and researchers, it's so psychologically scarred our species that many believe their lives would be meaningless if death were taken away, and any ecological benefits it may provide could be offset by a sufficiently advanced resource conservation/recycling regimen and stellar travel.

Of course, I realise things are more complicated than that. For example, there are those who are in terrible pain and have no prospect of recovery from some condition that might choose to die, and I want them to have the right to make that choice for themselves. But if I could I'd at least want to make death a completely voluntary matter, and ideally we'd eventually work out better alternatives for those put in such a tough position.
