Questions

I’m feeling philosophical and perhaps a bit morbid, but here are a couple of questions I’m currently musing on.

1.  Say you have a young child and his or her mother.  Which is worse, the death of the child or the death of the mother?  You would probably pick the death of the child, but isn’t it more cruel to have a child grieve over the death of the mother than the mother grieve over the child?  After all, the mother is an adult, and arguably better able to handle emotional issues.  However, the child has more potential years.  And the person who dies isn’t going to care–after all, they’re dead.  The grief and horror of death falls on the survivors.

2.  If you knew the world would end in five generations, what would you do?  For example, you could still have children, but you would have to know that somewhere down the line they would suffer.  (After thinking about that one, I decided I would found a company to build a self-sustaining spaceship–maybe in five generations we could figure it out).

And it’s such a pretty day outside!

I write about life, people, and the things that interest in me. Which often includes death, sex, friendship, and the future of humanity. I hope for the best in people and I prepare for the worst. But no matter what happens, change is constant and everything will be ok.
