    Quickly? Slowly?

    Knowingly? Unknowingly?

    Why?

    Quickly and unknowingly for me as I imagine that would be the pain free option

    Drowning, car crash where killed on impact, nuclear bomb, massive explosion, falling from a great height, quickly by sword; any of these.

    I wouldn't even have time to realise it.

    After my heart attack I lost consciousness in the hospital after a severe heart rate drop. It just happened. I just wasn't there all of a sudden. Didn't even have time to think something went wrong.

    If death takes me this way, I'm all set.

    Unknowingly. If knowingly, I'd like to have enough time to say my amends and be in nature with music and loved ones.

    Hmmm... You know, I don't think I care one way or the other. It won't be pleasant whatever way it happens, and if I see it coming I will face death swinging.

    I guess I would prefer that my brain is instantly destroyed, but that's not too likely. :D

    Quickly and unknowingly. If death takes it's time it'll be time enough for me to figure out how to cheat.

    Slowly, over a period of time in which I can reflect, and maybe write something that will be of comfort or interest to other people as they face their own passing.

    I don't really care. I kind of hope I have a chance to say goodbye, though.

    Slowly. So slowly I don't even notice, and over a period of several millenia.

    Go to sleep by the sea or in the woods and never wake up. That would be ideal. But we don't get to choose.

    Slowly with full awareness. (And when I'm 105 years old).

    In the day I know good and evil my time in samsara will end and my physical body will die and consciousness will awake in the midst of paradise with perfect faith.

    Slowly and knowingly so that I may meditate on Bhagavān like never before.

    I hope I die from living too long. Failing that a spectacular explosion would be cool. Might as well make the papers.
