I posted this in Depression but I don't think it belonged there. Does anyone else have a fascination with death, even though you're not necessarily suicidal? It may seem to be a redundant question to ask in this kind of a forum but I'm curious. I feel strange being interested in how dying feels or the motivations of suicidal people. I'm afraid of death, so perhaps that's a motivator. Humans have always been preoccupied with their mortality, but I feel the modern world - at least the developed parts - are so detached from death that it's more taboo to discuss, much less take an interest in.
