    Tangent, but I may agree.

    I've seen enough family go to know that I will be forgotten fairly quickly, and that's ok. I was here, then I wasn't, and that's good enough. . I just want somone to play "Mama I'm Coming Home" after I'm gone for me

    I would rather be forgotten. But if I must be remembered... Bury me in a lonely sepulchre on a hill next to a gnarly old oak and have it light up ominously when lightning splits the sky. I haven't actually done anything of note, but because my grave is some melodramatic bullshit, it inspires the neighborhood kids to come up with some wacky urban legends.

    Don't get me wrong, I adore Leonardo's work, but the experience of the Mona Lisa in the Louvre is just... I dunno. You see the painting from far away, surrounded by a huge crowd taking photos with their phones.

    It's quite alienating. Perhaps it's better on a Tuesday morning in November ;)

    Simply put, the good and not the bad. At the core I'm about promoting love and positivity the best I can and I can only hope it's a trend I helped to continue when I'm gone and not the opposite. We all try our very best and are only human though.

    But most importantly, whatever helps the person move on with their lives and not dwell on my absence. Especially at my gravestone as I am no longer there nor would I want to be if there is any after-life. Just move on, and remember the good times. Always.

    That I helped pave the way for the next cultural revolution for the kids of tomorrow who will be dealing massive population shifts, robots doing their jobs, changes in food and housing due to climate change, etc. I want to be remembered as the obscure shadow who spoke to how to live and think in the wild 21st century or later.

    I want to be not remembered after a couple of generations.

    I'd like to be the wind in the trees and the clouds on the mountain tops.
    I'd like some of the things that I have been and done to have mattered for good - choices made and people influenced that cascade down the centuries. Nothing big and grand, just little things that make the world different forever in some ways to what it would have been if I had never existed.

    I don't really want my memory to be explicit though - I certainly don't want to be forced into extraversion after I have passed on lol.

    My achievements. Although I try not to focus too much on the being remembered bit of that.

    I guess I don't care much, although i'd prefer it if my friends didn't think of me as an asshole.

    Anyways, I believe we should do the right things in life because they're right, not for some legacy. That's just egotism.
