Well it can make people depressed and have anxiety of some sort.

Not much. It's something I can't possibly change, so I don't give it much thought.

I guess you could say - if this is what you're asking - that the fact our time is limited encourages me to live life to the fullest (hence why I'm posting here on TSR)? I also think, though, that people who look too deeply to this tend to develop a rather unhealthy obsession with living a 'full' life - while this is, in itself, not a bad thing, the neurotic fear of failure that comes with it is rather the kicker for me.

I see what you mean, but I mean is what do you think of the fact that you're always getting closer to death rather than escaping away from it

I tend to obsess over the powers of youth, youth transformation, age regression, weight loss often does it, any sort of 'fat to fit', anything where people get better and become more-so some sort of creation obsession to challenge the death anxiety? Ironically though I generally get **** all done.

We don't know that. Time could be flipping direction 'all the time' and we'd never be able to notice.

Comment please.
If this wasn't the case we would never progress(if we just stayed young we would never have ended up doing anything) and do anything as we get older we get wiser,learn more and are able to do more(as kids we weren't able to understand as complicated concepts).The problem is when you get really old and start to deteriorate and possibly lose your mind.

Yeah so what? You're dying from the moment you're born and the only thing certain about is death. The only difference is some people take the fast track.
