Yesterday, a friend of mine recounted a two-part question that his philosophy professor had long ago posed to his class: (1) If you could know now exactly when you would die, would you want to know? (2) And if you would, then would you also want to know the cause of your death?

Would you like to think about this for yourself for a moment? Go ahead. I’ll put my own speculations (yet to be written) in the post below.
