Would you rather know how or when you die?
 | 
France daniel19 
Question in title. I think people who live in peaceful societies would rather know when as the main causes of death would be age or illness. Do you think these two dimensions can be detached, for exemple if you see a painful death coming, would you be scared about dying young, or dying in pain. It's tough to put words on these concepts. What's your opinion?

Now if I told you, you would die from drowning, would you stop going to the sea or something like that ?
2020-02-19 15:48
i am confident swimmer but probably would still avoid fast flowing rivers or wild seas tbh, but death by drowning is pretty painless so that doesnt even hurt to know

France daniel19 
Oh I thought it was painful but anyway that wasn't rly my point, would you maximize the chance of avoiding the cause of death ? Would you change your habits ?
2020-02-19 15:51
if u think about it u have to die by that thing, yes id probably be more carefully but not like i wouldnt go for a swim in swimming pool/river/lake/sea in summer
2020-02-19 15:53
Drowning hurts also imagine that you are still conscious trying to breathe yet u cant its terrifying as fuk. Only insta death like shoot in da brain breaking spine cord etc doesnt hurt

Neither. Then you just start waiting for your death and become depressed.

Not even how? You don't really wait it if you don't know when it will happen
2020-02-19 15:49
But if you know that you will for example die in a car crash, you start avoiding cars and stuff like that. Maybe you dont want to even leave your house after that.

definitely when and it's not even up for debate, mostly because i'd find it easier to deal with the worst possible outcome in terms of when, but not how. if someone told me i'd be buried alive or that it'd drown to death in the arctic ocean i'd have a hard time ever being happy again. however if someone told me i'm going to die in 5 years i think i could handle it and live life to the fullest until then

But imagine you know you die in 5 years, and you realize after 5 years you will die from being buried alive. wouldn't you rather know how and get prepared kinda?
2020-02-19 15:55
#24
friberg | 
Sweden günT 
i'd imagine in this hypothetical scenario that you can't prepare, otherwise i'd simply never set my foot on a boat or plane. and imagine if i know that i'm going to be buried alive and it happens in 5 years either way.

Imagine getting prepared to die in 5 years and you realize you will suffer, I think I would rather know how just at this thought, but if asked I would pick when and hope the cause of death isn't that bad

imo picking how is high risk/high reward. we can flip my reasoning upside down and instead imagine that my heart would just stop beating in my sleep, which would be great tbh. i think that would be very easy to deal with, but as i said it'd be ever more horrifying to find out that you're going to die from a terrible cause of death. if you choose when, i guess it'd be sad to find out you're going to die in 5 years, but when you've come to terms with it, you might begin to live. if i found that out, i'd drop everything in life and just live. drop out of uni, cash out my savings, travel, and do stuff i actually enjoy. perhaps i'll only get to live 5 years, but perhaps during those 5 years i'd also be able to live more than i currently will during an entire lifetime at this rate

Just thought about a thing tho, if you know you will die soon, it is more likely that your death will be brutal because it excludes aging and illness (except fatal)

I keep switching between how and when lmao, I think i'm going for how atm

friberg | 
Sweden günT 
now i don't understand why you'd pick anything other than how. if you die in the upcoming future it will likely either depressing or brutal, whether it's cancer or a plane crash, so if you pick when and it's not when you're 70+, you can likely deduce the cause of death. if you go with how there's really no way of knowing when you're going to die. but then again, maybe that's not good to make it more complex, if you knew when you were going to die, wouldn't you want to know how, and vice versa. because now i'm starting to think that if i know i'm going to die in 5 years i'd also like to know how
2020-02-19 16:22

but you can only pick one question sadly ;) I can imagine one learning both how and when and instantly regretting to know would you even want to know one of these answers ? wouldn't it spoil life ?

friberg | 
Sweden günT 
that's the thing tho, you really, really don't want to know either, it would really fuck you up. but perhaps when you find out one, you need to know the other as well. i don't believe anyone would be cruel enough to deny someone the info of when they're going to die when they've just told them their cause of death

How can they tell you "yo, you will die at 60/70/80 years" when u can just kys and change it? Date is never known, you can change him rn If you want to...soo they'd either have to lie some ppl or not tell them at all.

France daniel19 
So what would be your call ;)
2020-02-19 16:04
Probably how, because there is a relatively high chance it will be a natural death and I would be less worried about it. But on the other hand, if I knew when and it was elderly like 70, 80 I would be "oh ok whatever". So imo there are pros and cons in both cases regarding the outcome.
2020-02-19 16:08

France daniel19 
I think how is scarier but I would rather know when. Agree with you
2020-02-19 16:10
I would rather know I will die from cancer (at 50 yo for example) than knowing I will die at 50 years old (from cancer). I'm 22 and I would be depressed for the next 28 years.

If i knew how i'd die Will it change the future or is it 100% no matter what?
2020-02-19 16:05

France daniel19 
Let's say 100% otherwise there is no point in knowing and even thinking about it then
2020-02-19 16:09
Then i'd rather know when So i can say goodbye to all my friends family do the things that i always wanted to repair all mistaked etc. Knowing whats gonna kill me and no chance to avoid that would Just give me mega depression aniexy and all the bad shit i would be probably scared to leave my house

France daniel19 
Yup agree but again: - the early the death, the more likely your death will be brutal (excludes illness and age) - upon facing its death cause, one may regret not knowing, especially if the death cause is scary
2020-02-19 16:14
Not really because u might be sick (lets say lung or any cancer low change but it is possible) the death is painful but not brutal also meds might give a relieve with pain. Sorry but the second argument is stupid it is better not to know that ur death might be scary. As u said the death is 100% which might give u a life knowing that u Will hurt plus many other problems like depression aniexy etc

I was really into the when because causes of death nowadays are mostly fine to deal with, for exemple pear of anguish isnt a thing anymore lol but knowing when really is disturbing i think, it spoils life kinda, so maybe I would pick how... or would I even pick one

I don't give a f**k, I'll die when I'll die, simple as
2020-02-19 16:17
I'd like to know every detail, it makes it easier for me knowing in certainty. So i'd know not to waste every second of me still being here. I had a convo with my mates also. What if every person has lifebar on the top of their head along with a timer of their remaining lifetime then would people act differently towards one another, even strangers.
2020-02-19 16:20

 | 
France daniel19 
So you would go for how. Interesting but yeah I think people would act very very different, they would feel sorry and be particularly nice towards people near death I think
2020-02-19 16:21
Yeah i guess i'd go for how, knowing when i die might stresses me out now that i think about it. We had that conversation in freshman year of high school and it made me a much nicer person after that, and became less bitter about the world.
2020-02-19 16:45

 | 
France daniel19 
I think the people who act the nicest are the most afraid about death, like why would you be nicer to someone just because he would die tomorrow, should we be scared of death or scared of dying?
2020-02-19 16:48
No I don't think we should be afraid of death, because it will definitely happen one way or another. Of course it's not obligatory to be nice to someone before they die, it's just i'd like to think that it might comfort them in those situations. I'm not afraid of death btw, i was even suicidal at one point in time lol.

if death is certain, why even think about suicide tho
2020-02-19 16:58
You know for sure when and how if you committed suicide. All you know for death is that it's certain You could suffer your entire life and by the time you hit 80, death still hasn't knock your door. How about not wasting all that time suffering and commit suicide when you're still 20. My god this topic is depressing.

Don't be depressed, It is just interesting
2020-02-19 17:16
Oh no no i don't mean that, i mean this topic got a bit morbid lol. Also what compelled me to keep being nice to people is a friend i knew from middle school who'd almost gave up on everything, she got shunned and bullied a lot and my dumbass couldn't do much for her back then which has a toll on my mentality to this day.
