You know when you're young you think that you are immortal. I was in bed a few days ago and I got reminded that I would die one day. I got so scared because it had been years since I thought of death. I don't want to forget that death is reality so that I can cherish every moment of my life. I gain confidence from this approach and now I like to live life remembering this whenever I can. I also believe that there is deeper meaning within reproduction . We were made to reproduce. I feel that this is the single thing in life we can be sure of that has purpose. I would not like to die and not have a child because I feel like I would have missed out on a key aspect of life. I honestly am frightened of death, but I know that being scared will not change a thing. I'm gradually learning to accept death as a natural occurrence.

Death is the one thing mankind is guaranteed. For sure every soul shall taste death though none know the exact time or place of death. Death and the thought of death brings about end to pleasure. It puts a lot into perspective.

Ugh, no. That's so primitive.

Many societies accept death as a natural part of life by building a culture around it. Where mourning is more elaborate, or funerals last for days, for example in some parts of Lebanon the death of a close one is a time to make amends with any enemies or forgive those who deceived you. When societies come together in support death is accepted as a part of life rather than simply a dark and tragic affair. I sometimes like to walk through graveyards and read people's gravestones, simply muse on their lives and pay respects. It makes me leave feeling like i am really alive.

The biggest misconception many have about death is that it is an end.

But it's true but it's also not our only goal. Why else would we be made like this?
Every living entity to have ever existed did so via reproduction. It would be impossible for us to be 'made' otherwise. it's really not that deep. That doesn't mean reproduction is a necessary personal ends.

I feel like there's something more than just producing another human. I just get the feeling that there is more to it. Like it's a continuity of yourself.
Meh, I hazard it is whatever you make it. it's not something I have an immediate interest in so it's not a goal I have.

Also can I ask you something. What do you think happens after death? I'm just asking this because I want to see other people's views on it. I'm not the type of guy to try to "prove" that other people's views are wrong. I just accept that they have them.

by that I mean like why else would we have a reproductive system. I feel like that I was given that to reproduce. I'm not like homophobic it's just I feel that reproduction has more purpose...I don't really know how to word this. I'm truly sorry if I offended you

For how long could we ignore blessings? It doesn't take much observation of one's own self. Also, observation of that which is around us. Do you think we were created in the best of structures?

Not all people want kids, though. Including straight people. How do you explain that?

Ye that's true but most people do want sex and that's driven by the body's desire to reproduce but maybe not the mind's desire for many. I don't know if you'll get this but say if a guy ejaculates the body does that with the purpose of reproducing whereas the guy himself may not even want to reproduce. So I feel there is greater meaning in it because our bodies desire it. Once again I have no idea how to explain this properly

i believe the reference is an overall gratitude, ability to breathe, ability to see nature, the ability to sleep in a bed and actually feel coziness and comfort. the blessing of having food everyday and stuff like that

How do you know? Maybe it's just "the body's desire" for pleasure.
