||And I started feeling sick Sunday night, so it looks like Phase I takes 4 days. Right now I'm at the stage where you feel three-fourths of the way back to normal and can start getting some work done again. You think everything is going to be fine -- unless you have a true grasp of the big picture.
Based on the known facts, we can conclude that this "think you're going to be fine" stage lasts about one week, at which point the wicked Phase III kicks in. What is Phase III? Death. Yes, this is most definitely a deadly disease with no cure. Typically, your doctor will try to make up some happy prognosis that you will be fine in a few days, which is half-true. He just won't be able to bring himself to reveal the entire horrific truth: you will eventually die, no matter what.
So, the best thing to do is forget about meaningless Earthbound questions and concentrate on more trancendant truths, things that you will need to take with you into eternity. Such as that there is nothing at all after death but an utter void, and that the sum total of your life, and every other life that has ever been is zero. Accept that is is all less than a joke, it is simply nothingness, and in the face of the numbingly vast infinity of time and space that obliterates our absurd tiny spark of life, no meaning is possible. There's basically nothing there, so how can nothing mean anything?
So. You have ten or fifteen days to live, and then it will all be over, gone, and forgotten. Let me know if you need me to go over this in more detail.
I do, I do, I do
