Today is the 8061st day of my life.
We live in a time in which the money someone has on his banking account diversifies by orders of magnitude – between billions and not even having a banking account or enough to live. Individuals can own absurdly more money than the average human has or needs. But when we think of an „account of life time“ there is not so much divergence anymore. As Chuck Palahniuk wrote wisely: “On a long enough time line, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.”
And the asymptote approximately is 42340 days (at the moment), but the average human never hits the 30000.
If the message isn’t clear yet, let me give you another quotation by Chuck Palahniuk:
“If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don’t you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can’t think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all that claim it? Do you read everything you’re supposed to read? Do you think every thing you’re supposed to think? Buy what you’re told to want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you’re alive. If you don’t claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned.“
