Why? What difference does it make? If I lie down and die will I be any different than that supermodel or whomever the fuck, who's on the cover of all the magazines for a couple of years, and then gets forgotten immediately?
Billions and billions of souls have died before you on this piece of rock. All with their own fates, problems, hopes, and so on. And you know what?
NONE of them fucking mattered. Nobody knows or cares about some dipshit landworker from the middle ages.
And every single person who's remembered (kings, nobles and so on) was born into their position.
Completely arbitrary and random. Nothing that you could've influenced or changed in ANY way. If you weren't born at the top, why bother at all?
Moreover, there have been much, MUCH more history going on, on the planet than we know of. Aztec kings can go fuck themselves. Nobody cares. The information we have about them is largely theoretical and guesswork.
Just like them, the cogs of time will ground you to dust and nothingness, just the same. And nobody will care or remember.
