"Better than Viagra"

Regret.


Regret is a heartrending emotion.


To me, regret represents the inability to return and change your life, to correct your mistakes. Think about all those missed opportunities. Or, consider all the things you regret not saying, or worse, the things that you did say and later wished you never did.


What about regretting your entire life?


What about regretting your entire life when you know you are dying?


In Judaism, hell is not about demons, fire, and pits. It is the feeling of regret. To be more precise, your soul will be tormented when it realizes how many opportunities you missed during your earthly existence. Your soul will see clearly, how you wasted your life. The regret you felt while you were alive will be nothing compared to what you will experience in hell.


This topic has been an interest of mine since 1999.


That's the year when Planescape: Torment was published. It is one of the most captivating games and a distinguished classic. It is all about dying and regret. The protagonist is tormented because of feelings of grief and regret.

It's a game that genuinely changed my life. It has so much philosophy. It makes you think about your life long after you finished the game. Here are some of the many brilliant sentences in it:


"I may be bested in battle, but I shall never be defeated."


Or:


"Time is not your enemy. Forever is."


Why am I so morbid?


Am I dying?


And how is all of this related to Viagra?


Technically yes, I am dying. Every day brings me closer to that point. Despite popular belief, even vegans eventually die. But I am not dying prematurely, nor do I think about the end of my life.


I was thinking about death and regret two days ago, while I was hiking naked in the forest. I started clothed, then removed my clothes in this order: Shirt, shorts, and finally, my jocks. It felt great hiking naked, even though I was cold.
