That makes me think of an old hypothetical ... if you could know how you were going to die, before it happens, would you want to?

John Henry Holliday, DDS: 20 and all the world ahead
I did know. I was very distressed at the time. But later, I learned that it was a power, maybe, to be certain and never have to worry about dying. Then, I would never have had it any other way. Death became a friend. I would want to know, were it to happen again. What about yourself? Do you think you would wish to know?

I'd want to know. So I could warn people, and meet Death head on.

I don't know that I would wish to warn people, but I would certainly want to meet it head on. When I was dying I protected my family, for the most part - those I loved. I did not want them to mourn my peace and passing, further to mourning my life and pain. It would have been inconsiderate to burden them with that.

I don't feel especially afraid of death, but still I don't think I would want to know, because I think it could possibly prevent me from living my life to the fullest.

For instance, If I were to know that I was to die in a duel. Then perhaps I would take fewer chances, stand against other people less often and in the end wind up doing less good, then I might otherwise had.

Not to mention, it just seems like a heavy burden when to have to carry. People in general who know death is coming for them, often end up very depressed and downtrodden. I'm not sure that the knowledge of my own death would make me feel that way, but I wouldn't want to find out either.

Death. It was like an inspiration. I took more chances rather than fewer. My hand was more sure, with nothing to lose. As far as a burden goes, I did consider it would be so for my family and friends, and I kept it from them, at the end. But for myself, it was no longer a burden, but a fact and part of me. A need to eat, or the necessity miss half one's days in sleep could be considered a burden, but one does not think of it so. My disease with its pain, fever, dark thoughts and hideousness is worse than any mere thought, even anticipation of death.

“It is neccessary to have wished for death in order to know how good it is to live.”

I always keep that in mind.

John thinks about this for some time. Finally he answers, "When I have truly wished to die - and that was a long time ago, even without considering the intervening years - I was not capable of thinking that. Death seemed the answer to everything. And when living has been good, as it is now, I have not needed the reminder."

It is good to remember.

Transformative points are important. some doors can never be walked back through again - giving time to try that which could not be before.

"That is very much what it is like, my friend. Perhaps not 'trying' but 'experiencing' or 'learning'." John smiles.

It must be a weird feeling, looking back on something like that.

I'm glad you're here, John. I don't know how it happened and I don't think I ever will, but I'm lucky to know you, my friend.

I don't remember dying. I remember Gabriel taking my hand, and then... the twenty first century. But I am surely glad to be here as well. I have no doubt it is for some perfect plan. *winks*

Thank you very much for suggesting it, but it is perhaps a little late for a wake. *smiles* Welcome back, by the way. A pleasure to meet you.

Suit yourself. I don’t know if I could pass up the opportunity to hold such a morbid shindig.

I don’t think we’ve ever been properly introduced. Dr. Eugene Crimson-Meadows. Happy deathday.

Dr. John Henry Holliday. Thank you kindly. I expect I shall host a gathering on my birthday. It is more traditional, but there is nothing less in it for that. Tell me, of what are you a doctor? I myself am a dentist.
