Implied Mortality?

Posted in Philosophy with tags on July 9, 2008 by impliedmortality

“What’s implied mortality mean?”

Well I’ll tell you.  It’s the notion that one’s mortality is only implied and not, as most would presume, guaranteed.  That is until you’re dead…

Of course once you die it seems obvious that your mortality was there all along.  But what if you don’t die?  What if you waste all sorts of time and energy trying to avoid what isn’t there? 

That would be tragic.  Almost as tragic as death itself.

It’s a fine line we must walk between protecting this seemingly fragile and intolerably short life and actually enjoying what little time we have.
