soon everyone you have ever known and loved will be dead.
they will not exist, and not care about the news or twitter.
not only will you be dead, but your children will soon die.
their children will die, and your name will be forgotten or resurface in school projects.
the alternative is hell, an eternal life, without sense of the passage of time
everyone's descendants and ascendants alive
struggling to relate to generations of family members.
trying to conduct those relationships in unique and stable ways. 
unable to grow or change, static beings, a hell, but there is death.
