Indeed.
Multiply the "Days" answer by 24 and then by 60 to know how many minutes you have been alive ... then think about how many you have wasted.

Only this one shows you how many seconds you have left before you die; a good mindfulness of death exercise.

We're doomed. We're all going to die!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

This OP reminds me my earlier post. “What is unique in human compare to animals?”
To be born as a human is such a rare chance we should make the most of it before the next birth. (attain Niravana)
We also should protect precious human life.

Hopefully it's telling you that you've attained the deathless! :lol:
