Immortality and me

My first Pingback

The question is ‘at what age did you realise you were not immortal?’.

My answer is that I never have. I feel immortal, and am terrified of events happening that could prove me wrong about that belief. In fact, from a philosophical point of view, we are immortal every second of every day of our lives, except for one. But if we realised how fragile we really are, we’d hide under rocks and never do anything. We need a little delusion here and there to push us to be better.

On another note, I got two hours sleep last night… perhaps that’s related to my thought processes today somehow.

So to answer your Question… nearly 32 and counting!!!
