Regarding mortal immortality

There are days that the idea of death frightens me. Other days, I don’t really care. There is this one person that to my eyes, gives me hope that you can span through generations and truly live long to the eyes of everyone else. To me, he seems to have been alive since forever: Mickey Rooney.

You see, cinematography started taking a shape of its own as a major industry at the late 1920s. The way I perceive 1920s, is like, a million years ago. But there was Mickey Rooney. Starring in movies from the 1920s, to his latest, “Night at the Museum”, just a few months ago! He went through the silent era, the technicolor era, the true-color era, the HD.

Mickey Rooney just gives me hope that the time we have in this planet, is actually a lot of time (at least, for most people). Enough time to experience the world transforming to something completely different.

Death itself doesn’t frighten me, it’s just the whole “dying” part.

It doesn’t frighten me too, but maybe it’s because I don’t have much to loose at the current state of my life. Or maybe not caring is just another mechanism to reduce my anxiety. I have kept this “Ok, if it comes, it will come and release me” attitude towards the idea of death and it feels so great..
