Life in the future?
What is the next, and will we all be left in a lifeless state?
This is the question many people are asking.
There is no one right answer.
But the most common answer is that the end of the world is inevitable.
The Irish Times spoke to people who say they are still alive today and those who have died, but not yet reached the age of 100.
They said they are living the last 50 years with a different outlook.
Life in the past, they say, was more comfortable.
People had jobs, were able to enjoy their leisure time, and were well off.
They enjoyed a much more comfortable lifestyle, and so did their children.
The people who are living in the present are poorer and living on lower incomes, said Mr Tully.
Some are already in a state of chronic illness.
Others may be unable to work, or have no choice but to leave the workforce altogether.
Many of the people who have reached the end have been in a relationship with someone who has died, said Ms Mihir, who also said her parents are struggling financially.
“They feel that they are the only people left and that their life is the only one left,” she said.
“There are so many people who feel the same.
They are just going to have to live with it.”
There is also an emerging trend of people choosing to die earlier than most people think possible.
“It’s becoming a trend in the UK and it’s happening in the United States as well,” Ms Misko said.
The trend is driven by the idea that death will not occur until at least 100 years after the last person left the earth.
For some people, the question of life is not just a question of whether they live to see their 100th birthday, but whether they can ever make a proper decision.
“My favourite question is ‘what happens to me when I die’,” said Mr Gage, a retired teacher in North Carolina.
“If you’ve got a job, you know, you’re going to be around to look after the kids.
If you’ve had a bad day, you’ve been there a long time.
But what if you don’t have that option?
What if you’ve lost everything?”
So there is a question that’s very big to me.
