My Life On Postcards

Eternal Life

Dear Aiyana, The other morning, after almost surfacing into consciousness I got stuck in a dream where I was forced to choose between eternal life and instant death. Naturally I spontaneously picked instant death, even if it was only to end this obscure dream. Later that day I reconsidered my choice and tried to imagine how attractive an everlasting life would be. But contemplating infinity from a finite point of view, left me with nothing more than a strange urge to set an instant end to this thought.
