See, now i think the opposite is true. I think it depends on the individual and their environment. I am a nobody so to have a perspective of an eternity makes life worth while. If i thought that there was nothing after this I think I would be a manic depressant.

Breaking News: Real Life Fallen Angel Has Fallen From the Sky in London

A human like “Angel” has fallen out of the skies over London. The extremely human like creature with what seems to be “angel” wings as arms appears to have fallen from the sky at around 1:50pm this afternoon.

The ‘Angel’ like creature was quickly rushed away by what seemed to be undercover police officers dressed in suits and sunglasses, resembling the characters in the hit movie Men in Black.

It comes just hours before NASA announced finding ‘Earth 2.0′ the most habitable planet ever discovered.

All a little freaky if you ask me.

And it ain't even April 1st.

You are no more a nobody than anybody else, Ralph! Where did you get that strange idea?

But why? Aren't you enjoying life?

By that I mean that I am just your average Joe. I am only a somebody to you because we have exchanged views and opinion on a debating forum, so I exist to you, somewhere in the world. I would be a nobody to you, if not for that. You would never know who I am or even if I existed. Nothing about me would ever tell you that i exist. I am not rich, talented, famous or a sports giant. You will never know me for my exploits. I am a nobody.  When you have an eternal perspective it gives you something to look forward to. It becomes a raison d'etre.

I am living it and enduring it. I enjoy somethings and dislike other things but I could enjoy it a lot more.

Ah, now I understand, but you are terribly mistaken, Ralph. The people that you consider 'somebody' are only so because of the gene pool that all the nobody's have contributed to. Without our contributions they would be just another 'average Joe', because their genes are just a lucky mix of the pool that all the nobody's have built up. It is fine for us to recognise outstanding examples of humanity, but remember that they are what they are because of us.

So you think you are going to be 'important' in eternity, and not just an 'average Joe', like the millions of souls you believe are there?

In other words, your life is just like that of the rest of us, so you consider that as 'enduring'.

Perhaps, Ralph, you are being a tad egotistical in wanting more than you've got.
