You live in a constant state of decay. Every day your body is working against you and your mind starts to deteriorate. Declining memory function is thought to begin as early as age 30 and is often evident after 50 years of age. This means that time is against you and the clock is constantly ticking.   The fact that death is creeping at our backdoor and could end everything at any given moment is no secret.
