What is premature death Weegy:
Hi Third P.
You ask a very interesting question.
I personally know one person like that, and his mother was like that also. [ In addition, in my line of work, I have come across people like that.
Someone who has complete apathy truly is suffering a living death. To have no interests whatsoever, to not care about anything one way or another makes for a life that does seem already dead. As a matter of fact, many people like this do eventually become suicidal.They, themselves often see the emptiness of their lives.
It is a strange feeling to know a person who has complete apathy. They have no interests, no point of view on anything in life, don't care what happens in any area of life. It truly is as if they are not alive, except for the basic physical ways of living. They are, indeed, in a premature death.
I, myself, cannot imagine living like this. I am now bedridden from disabling illness for the past 3 years. Yet I have a full life, friends, interests, things that matter to me, people I care about, a life with quality. The person I mentioned earlier who has complete apathy cannot imagine living as I do. To him, he would then truly have no use for this life. As a matter of fact, his sister is the same way. I spoke to her the other day, the first time in about 9 years. Her attitude towards me was that it was I who had a premature death, She even alluded to the fact that mine was not a life worth living. When I assured her that it was the opposite, that I had a full, rich life, she asked, "how could you." She said this with almost anger in her voice. She said, "how can there be any quality to your life?"
Of course a person whose apathy has put them into a premature death could never perceive how a physically debilitated person could have a life of quality. That's because THEY do not have a life of quality.
However, getting back to what you ask — what is the use of prolonging their lives? We should definitely prolong their lives, just as my life should be prolonged. Actually my life, as physically limited as it is, seems far more valuable to prolong. ] Auto answered|Score 1
