I don't think I would want to know. I think most of us have hope normally, and knowing that we are going to die within a certain number of days would take hope away.

I'm not sure I would want to know the exact time of my death. On one hand you'd know when you're going so you can prepare accordingly, plan your life out without venturing too far into a future that will never happen. On the other, I'll be so anxious and rushed knowing what little time I'd have left - as it'd never be enough.

As for the matter of including the Final Notice option, I'm guessing the company came up with an idea that sells and very few businesses would consider the moral implications of selling that particular product.

I would not want to know. I don’t think we are supposed to know. It’s the way nature designed life.
