What do you want to do, before you kick the bucket?

    Inspired by the movie. Name some things on your bucket list (things you want to experience/do before you DIE).

    An interesting tidbit: Younger generations bucket lists tend to be "accomplishment orientated", according to the director.

    +1. Lets become Gods, together.

    Everyone already is. I know it doesn't look that way but we all are. That this is not understood is one of the truly tragic truths of our existence.

    Once we exist, we cannot not exist. Every experience, simply by the fact it is experienced, is absolute. Our consciousness experiences things in passing time, having a prior, current and imagined future. But passing time is only one of several dimensions of experience. The one beyond it, which we sometimes call 'eternity', encompasses all time. There is yet another beyond that, that encompasses all possibilities.

    The tragedy here is that if we truly understood this, not merely as a thought in our heads but as the way things actually are, everything about our lives would be different. We would not be driven by fear, for example but, hopefully, wonder. We would have completely different values and make completely different choices. Knowing this directly not as a thought but directly through apprehension is the meaning of 'enlightenment'. Absolute freedom.

    Aristoshark saidI'm pretty content, actually. I've done a lot, moved a lot, traveled a lot, met many many interesting people. I hope there's more of that to come, but I don't have any "must do" things on a list.


    This made me happy icon_smile.gif

    Experience true love with another man. I've lived my entire life as a straight man so I've never had the opportunity to experience what I know I was born to.

    I've wanted to do this at times -- only because some people annoy the heck out of me. Only I'd maybe want sparring gear and a cup; I guess that is not really fight club then.

    AardvarkPetter saidI'm sure I would still want to die by then. I just hope I die, not going to do anything drastic to make myself die. Heck, I wouldn't even mind if I died right now. Death has always been something that I have wanted to experience because it's so interesting. That fact that you just aren't alive anymore, so intriguing.

    Take 3 hits of DMT (Cf, this RJ thread) and you'll have this experience and be able to come back to tell the story. However, when the rush hits, trust me, you'll not believe you *are* coming back.

    Death is more an illusion than a reality anyway. But, then, most of what we think is real is an illusion, so, w/e.

    charlieiscoollike actually made a video about what you said and he made a real interesting point. yeah, if you die, your memory lives on through what you've done, ...

    No, that's not what I'm talking about. True, every day millions of people listen to the thoughts of other people long dead, but that isn't what I meant. I'm saying every experience you have exists outside of time. One way to think about it is like a circle: You begin at one point, birth, and continue on to the end point, death; at which point you're born again and the cycle goes on. But that is a metaphor. The actuality is more like everything is 'crystalized' or 'static' its just that we *experience* it from a pov of passing time. The reality is nothing ever ceases to exist. It's like when you're riding in a car and you look at a tree as you pass by, you see it from different perspectives as you go but the tree in itself was there before you showed up, is one single thing as you see it from different angles, and is still there after you've gone by.

    ... i'll never forget the time i was fucked up out of my mind in toronto off of some weed that probably could have been laced with who knows what... probably lsd or pcp. i don't know BUT whatever i smoked... it took my ass into another dimension literally where everything didn't make sense. it made me really question reality and humanity itself like..... once you lose the sense of self, identity, time, and space where you no longer know where you're at or who you are.... things begin to get really fucking scary. a lot of shit we live by for so long that once we lose that sight for a split second and can't come back to that shit right away...... icon_neutral.gif people freak out. the brain is really powerful like that. you push your mind out of what it's used to and you might end up going fucking nuts because they don't have that sense of self anymore. it's gone. a lot of crazy people are intelligent because they think out of the box and can see what the person who is used to same old shit can't see or doesn't think about.

    But your identity couldn't have been completely absent or your fear, specifically fear of 'loosing it' or w/e, wouldn't have been possible. Although I have 'been there and back' many times in my life, clearly such experiences aren't for everyone, especially the faint of heart, those who lack all imagination or those who have thin grasp of 'reality' to begin with. None of us see reality as it actually is. Our brains are conditioned to perceive things the way we do. It is a useful conditioning, one I wouldn't want to loose, but at the same time it is limited. If someone feels totally comfortable in that conditioned mind, then they shouldn't venture beyond it. But some of us *want* to know what else is out there, over the next perceptual event horizon. The trick is going there, coming back, and integrating what one's learned (if anything).

    Stop changing my "current address" so much, and travel leisurely whenever I can save up money to do it; is one.

    AardvarkPetter saidThere's a few random things that I would like to do before I die which include: Getting out of debt, traveling to another continent, going to New York, some how conquering my fear of falling and go sky diving, learning to surf, go to college, learning to cook better, get in better shape, buy a motorcyle, and to have another ferret eventually.

    I also want to die relatively young, like maybe before my late 40's.

    Yeah? We'll see what you think when you're, oh, 45 or so.



    I'm sure I would still want to die by then. I just hope I die, not going to do anything drastic to make myself die. Heck, I wouldn't even mind if I died right now.

    You are convinced that you will not be dead after you die? Those of us who are more rational than religious would say that you get to experience death once (if you are awake) and thereafter all knowledge of the experience is forever lost, as you will no longer exist.

    At your age, you can certainly still do all of these (except maybe conquer acrophobia, if that's what it is) since you just might be made that way.) Have at it.

    I'm really looking to getting to world travel a little once things get situated. I've always been interested in that sort of thing.

    About as far as I've gone is all across the east coast and a few places west. D:
