If you try to accept that even the human species will go extinct in a short period of time, you may be confronted with uncertainty. How will extinction happen? Nobody of us has any experience with that. Uncertainty is hard to endure.
Do a thought experiment with me and find out what death – knocking on the door – wants to tell us.
Life is too short for later
I have heard an audio book: Alexandra Reinwarth „Life is too short for later“ (only in German available). She describes how she and her circle of friends is confronted with another friend getting a new cancer diagnosis. Everything that is important in life stands in a different light. She decides to make a self-experiment. She gives herself a fictitious date of death in about a year.
I have chosen a fictitious death date for me too. February, 7th 2020 is my last day.
In this episode I tell a little story about this date.
And I am talking about what’s most important in my life for me. I am curious what comes to your mind, if you try as if. Please write what’s most important for you. Comment here or in the contact form.
With this episode I am starting a series. We will hear some voices that will tell us about their imaginary last year.
