One day, nobody will ever remember you existed. In that sense, it's almost like you never existed at all, amirite?

It's like a second death.

@Sex_With_A_Snail It's like a second death.

Wow, that's a really good way of putting it. I like that a lot.

I can't remember which famous person said it, but it's too much effort to Google it.

Well I plan on living long enough to live forever, but I get your point.

That movie is the biggest trip you can get without dropping acid, I swear.

I've never seen the movie, I just know what the Butterfly Effect is.

@Emyleigh Butterfly effect...

Ah, I see.
You should watch the movie, it's really good.

:/ I thought about something like that this April. It was exactly 2 years after my boyfriend left me, and I had known him for 2 years. It was almost as if it cancelled itself out and we never really mattered. It was really depressing knowing that I'd most likely been long forgotten.

Just cuz someone doesn't know you doesn't mean you never existed.

@Frank_n_Furter Just cuz someone doesn't know you doesn't mean you never existed.

In the specific sense put forth by the OP, it is. It's just a simile, a figure of speech; it's not designed to serve as a literal interpretation.
It is, by definition, a simple comparison TO that of not existing.

It's not almost LIKE you never existed. You either exist or you don't, there's no in between.

Sounds like 1984.

But you influence people every day, and that alters the way they influence people in the future, and so on and so forth. Even a forgotten person's existence is still felt in the world.

How do we know that we really exist in the first place?
