If we did not grow old and eventually die, it would be a lot easier to let go of time limits. If I tell you "You can have your new car, but it will take 2000 years" that is exactly the same as telling you "you can't have your new car". Even on a lower level, if I tell you "You can have a cell phone but it will take so long to get it that by the time you do, it will no longer mean anything to you because people will no longer be using cell phones and it will just be a useless relic" or "You can graduate but by the time you do, you will be too old to work in the field." Without time limits, don't things lose their meaning and desires lose their energy? Don't we ALWAYS have a time limit attached to our desires?

As long as there is death, time will be of the present.The reason we measure it; besides the obvious use of keeping things on schedule and timely, is to measure life thus death in a chronological sense.This said the ultimate marker of time is the heart beat are ticker as some call it, when it stops so does the physical sense of "when". So if you choose to ignore the time of departure then you can disregard your biological clock and "not care about when".
