is time really on our side?

    If we’re closer to death every day of our lives, is time really on our side?

    Of course time is not on our side.  But to live with this realisation on a daily basis would prevent the enjoyment of what little time we do have.  We look forward to things in the future, with no thought that the future is nearer to our deaths.  It would not be possible to function in any meaningful way if we were always aware of our mortality.

    You can look at it another way. That is that the past and the future do not really exist, (except as a concept in our minds); therefore all any of us have is this moment in time.
