A life without years…

Imagine how would be our world if we didn’t measure our life by years. We would just live. Freely. Without making rules for our life according to time. Without associating events to years. Without feeling young. Without feeling old. Off course! If there is no measurement of time, what really is young and what really is old?

Major Advantages

1) The greatest advantage of it would be lesser evocation of feeling “Time’s running faster than before”. Let me explain why do we feel this more and more as we age. When you were in school, you felt the year was much much bigger than it is now. Reason being, if you were 9 years old and spent one year in school, then it would be equal to spending worth of 10% of your life in an year. But when you turn 24 years old and spend an year in a┬áboring job, then you are spending only 4% of your life in an year. So in direct comparison, you feel that time is moving much much faster than it was in your childhood.

If there was no measurement of years, I surmise that the feeling will be less depressing. There is no doubt, that the time would still appear to be warped, but slightly lesser than it is now.

2) Lesser depression. People wold not be able to do direct comparison with the peers of exactly their age. I am 28 years old and I am earning only this much and he is 28 years old and he is earning that much. No bullshit like this.

3) No Marriage vs Education. 25 is too late for enrolling into graduate school, I would better drop the idea and get married. Or else I will turn 27 till I graduate and then who would marry me? Seriously, when you become 80 years old, will it matter if you married at 27 or 25? And do you think you will be too old after two years. Yes you are right, drop the idea, you are already old.

4) Extension of above point: You should hurry, next year you will turn 30 and then it will become extremely difficult to find someone for you. Slow claps! How much difference a 29.99 and 30.01 make? You should worry more about your health, not numbers.

5) You are under 35 and you have blood pressure. How on the earth can this be true! They said blood pressure arises after 35 age.

Seriously, what magic does 35 do? Again, leave the numbers and look where humanity is going. The amount of depression and anger present in today’s youth, it can’t match with any other earlier generation. The air you breathe is toxic. And you still believe in 35?

6) I am 40 years old and it’s too late to follow my real passion and leave behind my regular job. Man, you didn’t come to this earth to do stuff you don’t like. It’s never too late, whether it is 40, 60 or 80.

The list will in-exhaustive. And if you really learn to do things in life without considering how old you’re, you will always be on the brighter side, and more importantly, you will be a happy person, if not something else.

The choice is yours. Cheers!

Coherence is overrated. Randomness is underrated. You will probably be dead tomorrow.

If I ask people in general, “what are your thoughts about death? What do you think it would feel after being dead? Would you like to be dead?”, I am sure most of them would frown, and turn down the question as strange or silly one. There could be many reasons, some of them I can think of are…

1. People don’t like to think about death

2. People assume they are not going to die anytime soon

3. People don’t think there is something after death

4. People mistake death with pain, and they don’t even want to give it a thought

Why human brain is not evolved enough for your not so clever arguments, and how to argue well without ruining relations.

Imagine you are gearing up for a really long road trip. You have spent past one month planning the trip. You have distributed some planning work among your friends. Planning is really a crucial job. You are Monica. Today is the day when you set for the journey with your friends. You arrive at the railway station. Your train is scheduled to depart in half an hour from now. You have told one of your friends to carry the print out of the tickets (tickets are not booked online). You are waiting for that one friend to arrive while your other friends are already here. You see your friend coming. She is right in front of you. You hug her. You are really excited about the trip.

You see the expressions on your friend’s face changing from happy to tense in a flash.
