Cool, I was wondering who would say this. I disagree. As long as there
is continuation of consciousness, to me that's better than death, no
matter how great the pain. I'll still have my memories. I'll still have
my fantasies. I might even still be able to interact with my
surroundings to some extent and learn about them. In fact, as long as
I'm alive, there is always a wildcard; the possibility that I'll figure
out some way to improve the situation. So, when I was a kid, shortly
after I stopped fearing hell (for reasons of its nonexistance, of
course) I started wishing there would be some kind of afterlife, hell
or not. Anything to me would be better than just an abrupt end.
