Well, that's it, then. There is nothing more to life than what is plainly obvious. We are born, we live, and then we die.
No need to guess about what death is. You cease to exist. THEN THERE IS NO LONGER A "YOU" TO EVER HAVE LIVED IN THE FIRST PLACE.

The implications of this simple, obvious reality are staggering. It means that your life means absolutely nothing. Even scientific facts are completely meaningless. So the universe is 13.7 billion years old. WTF? Like that means jack shit. Like your consciousness is an emergent property of neuronal organization. Big fucking deal.
It does not matter what you think, believe, feel, or say. There is nothing to figure out, no necessary conclusions that need to be reached, no "bucket list" of things you need to do before you die.

So have a nice life. Or don't - I certainly don't care, and I don't care whether you do or not.

Life is sooooo scary.........
