  1. Regarding quality of life: however very unfortunate it may be to mostly despise one’s own corporeal existence, for many of us the greatest gift life offers is that someday we get to die.

    I believe that Sigmund Freud postulated that due to the general stressful nature of human existence, i.e. anxiety (“stimuli”, I believe he called it), the ultimate aim/goal of our brain/mind is blissful death.

    Indeed, the Sigmund Freud character in the 2011 film A Dangerous Method, muttered upon having a near-death-experience heart attack, “How sweet it must be to die.”

    Or, to quote the closing passages of a poem/prose I once penned:


    Each second that passes, I should not have to repeat and suffer again … /

    Give me a real purpose, I cry out, and it’s not enough simply to live / nor

    that it’s a beautiful sunny day with colorful fragrant flowers! // I’m

    tormented hourly by my desire for emotional, material and creative gain /

    that ultimately matters naught, I explain. My own mind brutalizes me like

    it has a sadistic mind of its own. I must have a progressive reason for this

    harsh endurance! // Could there be people who immensely suffer yet

    convince themselves they sincerely want to live when in fact they don’t

    want to die, so greatly they fear Death’s unknown? //

    Nay, leave me be to embrace and engage the dying of my blight!
