I wish that I did know when I was going to die. Since I am going to have surgery to remove cancer from my body next week, it would be helpful to know whether I am going to die or not. If I am, I can plan on being strressed because I feel I need to invest that time in my family, preparing them for what is going to happen.
If there is not going to be an end at that point, I would continue to live life as best as I can, like I typically do. Making sure I balance expectations of close family, expectations of those I supposedly work with ( long story), and my (presently non-existent) hopes .

I have always heard the saying, "ignorance is bliss." I think that saying defines exactly how I feel. There is no way I would want to know when I was going to die nor how I would perish. I think that if a person knew when they were going to die they couldn't fully live their life. They would be too cautious in some situations and a daredevil in others. I just believe knowing when your going to die goes against everything about living.

In case you already knows when you are going to die , you will loose the zeel and pleasure of life in presence , and actually you will die daily in worry of actually KNOWN death time..

I would not want to know exactly when I am going to die. I have terrible anxiety, and knowing this would make me feel like I am constantly wasting time (more than I already do).
I think this technology might make some people more reckless, if they have a short amount less, which might not be good for society as a whole.
