Hey guys, I am experiencing this horrible sense of doom when I began to realize that one day I am going to die and my existence will just end. What do I do?
>I began to realize that one day I am going to die and my existence will just end
Everyone realizes that, even four year old children. What are you talking about? Just the fact that you've begun to feel bad about it doesn't make the realization more true -- it is still a platitude.
that's exactly why spiritualism and religion is a thing. find a belief that helps you and guides you, anon.
this is something that atheist horseshit can't help you with because it's worthless.
Erwin Schrodinger believed that consciousness pervaded throughout the universe. Even an Anthropocene extinction event wiping out all of humanity won't stop "you," somewhere, from existing.
Yes, almost everyone recognizes that they will die, but for some reason, I feel so disturbed by this concept that everything that about my existence will just become nothing, just like it did before I was born, and just like it will be for the next hundreds of billion years.
It probably doesn't help that if it weren't for modern medicine I would have died a few months ago from blood loss just because of a protruding blood vessel in the stomach.
>What do I do?
get over it. you are guaranteed to die someday and in 100+ years nobody will even remember you, there is literally nothing you can do to stop this so there is no point in even worrying about it. you're in the same boat as 99.99% of the population.
>so concerned with death he forgot to live
every time you have one of these thoughts, do a favor for another person. volunteer somewhere, do chores for someone, do anything that is helpful to anyone.
you won't do it, but if you did, you'd find it really works.
Man up nigger. You wated 13.7 billion years to exist. Don't waste it shitposting and deathfearing.
switch to phenomenology and embrace the dhamma, the sole doctrine which explicitly offers a user manual to establish equanimity in daily life and has systemized the departure from hedonism.
