"Would Art live longer and be able to eat more over his remaining lifetime IF HE CONTROLLED HIS EATING HABITS, or if he didn't bother?" - Seattle Pioneer
-------------------------------------


Probably so but that's not the motivation. It's not being dead or when I die that scares me so much as "how I get there." Diabetes doesn't sound like a particularly attractive way to go. It's a long drawn out death with amputations, blindness, or kidney failure and dialysis.

See I have people who care and love me. I got family and friends and a wife and so I don't live for just myself. It has to do with that "life review" that so many near death experiencers talk about. Because of the connectedness and oneness feelings on the other side you feel all the pain and grief you caused others while you were here. During the life review you become the other person and feel what they felt while they interacted with you. People who try and commit suicide feel the grief of their loved ones.

excerpt from "the life review" on the near-death.com website,
"Instantly becoming everyone you came in contact with in your entire life (feeling their emotions, thinking their thoughts, living their experiences, learning their motives behind their actions)."
