Extra notes: Life is finite. Against eternity, each second, each moment becomes infinite in value.

The chances that you'll ignore that fact is more than 99.9999 percent certain. It's too frightening not to. It's too damning not to. Almost every moment of your life is an excuse not to.

Our society is based on ignoring it, and punishes those who don't. In fact, it does its level best to kill you if you don't. Most of the time it succeeds.

The thing is, though--the only true happiness you can experience can occur only when you refuse to ignore that simple fact and live your infinitely precious moments accordingly. And it's my belief that it's the only way you can get to Heaven.

So, finite life reading this: What are you going to do about that fact, hmm?
