Future Past Paradox

I was thinking along these lines this morning, and had a couple of thoughts that you may find useful. 

  1. Right now you are as young as you’ll ever be. In the timeline of your life, you are literally as far away from your death as you will ever be. That doesn’t matter if you die tomorrow, right now is still the furthest you’ll ever be from it.
  2. Everyone is as young as they will ever be. It’s not just you.  Even your grandmother. Her distance [on her life timeline] is as far away from her death at this moment as it will ever be in the rest of her life.
  3. Also, right now we are all as old as we have ever been. More time is in our past than has ever been in our past before. And as we get older, we will continue to be our very oldest at every single moment.

Therefore, you have more experiences now than you’ve ever had, and you’re as young now as you’ll ever be. So make today count. You’re not getting any younger.
