    Not the Lana Del Ray song. I mean assuming life starts at the moment of conception every second after that is one second closer to death. Therefore we technically are not living but are dying. Discuss. Also we're all gonna die one day. Sad times ;(

    Yes, death is inevitable. But **** son, there's more to life than the end of it o.O

    That's like saying that we only watch movies for the credits...

    Not really, technically we are living because we are not dead.

    'Living' and 'dying' are not a dichotomy; one can be simultaneously living and dying (as we all are, presupposing our existence, until we complete the process of living/dying and in fact die).

    Dying is only a state of mind. Death is only the point at the end of life.

    life is a song and dance, it is all about the process
    like the purpose of a song is the song itself, not the end of it, otherwise the best composers would be the ones to finish the fastest

    so it's about living (and then dying after it all)

    I personally think we are because we can't have tigers as pets which is totally what lana is trying to say in her song...

    But are we born to die? I think not.

    Life is what you make it. Be that full of work or boredom or sleep.

    Yes, this is why I am nihilistic and I believe that life is basically pointless as we all die eventually.
    But since we are here we might as well have a little 'fun' (And all the other sh*t that comes with it)

    Ok. But every second after that one second is also another second lived. Technically you are right, we are dying. What is else to discuss. You have just pointed out two things. So yeah it's interesting to think about it that way but what more apart from acknowledgement of your points do you want. Ask me a real question for a discussion.

    One inevitable fact of life, we will all die.

    We all have the same beginning and the same end.

    Its what we do with the time in between that counts.

    You could say it is sad but life really is very short if you have faith in God and believe in an eternity.

    No, we're born to procreate.

    And then die.
