really liked it

An accessible set of philosophical reflections on the meaning of death and whether or not it would be preferable to be immortal - with all the unforeseen and unthought-through consequences that would attend that state. His contention is that the contingency that in some way undermines the meaning of our lives since there is no right time to die if we remain engaged with projects of any sort also gives these same projects an urgency and vitality they would lack if we were immortal and could always do things later, or again, or with someone else.
