What can a person do about something inevitable?

Make use of your time here instead of spending much of it praying to go somewhere else after death?

Well if I were you I'd probably not over think that. I've tried over thinking it a few times. Every time I felt depressed and worthless afterwards. So yeah... Even if I was atheist I'd probably focus on anything but that.

Funny how people live all their lives trying not to think of death. Then again, it's useless to live all your life thinking and dreading death.

death comes. can be 20 year can be tomorrow.
all time you waste about thinking of it. you could do something fun or interesting.
just have fun during your live and don't think to far ahead.
a few year ahead is good but 20/30 year (or longer) is just to much. (and useless)

You just...deal. It's inevitable, so there's not point in being consumed by it in my opinion.

"Momma always said Death was a part of Life,"

-Forrest Gump.

Sums it all up. Ah well. I don't plan on dying soon, and none of us should. There's just too much out there to live, to experience, to even consider dying.

I die. Everybody dies. Chances are, due to my preferable career path, I will make others die. Chances are they will make me die. There isn't a point in fearing what's coming to us all. Death is the final rest. No more fear, no more pain, no more guilt. On the flip side, no more adrenaline, no more females, and no more fun.

Death will be the best thing that will ever happen to me, and the worst thing that will ever happen to me.

Well, none of the answers so far have been super compelling reading. They seem... like they need to be an answer rather than a discussion. Maybe it's just me. It feels like no one's seriously taken on the challenge of human mortality and grappled with it in a deep way. All the answers have been more shallow than I would like... I want to see someone take death seriously and THEN post a way of dealing with it.

I like this thread, though. I'm complaining because I believe in it. I like the chillingly simple OP. I'd like more complex answers, though.

Well, that being said and true enough, allow me to answer the titular question: I don't. I'm sad all the time.

How do you deal with the knowledge that your experience on Earth will end?

Think of the possibility that the house you live in, the places you've been will not last forever and will be forgotten, eventually.
The possibility that the Universe as we know it will cease to exist. The possibility that even your best efforts, your experiences, your influence and effect on future generations will cease to have all meaning when the Universe is nothing but atoms that have an infinitesimally small probability of interaction? The possibility that Newton, Shakespeare, Beethoven, and Picasso will have no meaning because there will be no one?

You do your best at what you're doing and when it comes down to it, they can't say you didn't try. Even if it's fighting against the Universe. Do what you do. **** all else. Why do you do anything at all?
