Imagine there's an algorithm and/or mechanism that could accurately predict when you'll expire. Clearly, there would be massive ramifications for the insurance/reinsurance industry, as well as the wealth managers, credit lenders, government entitlements, etc etc etc. The effect would be huge. It's interesting that we know the time/place of every appointment in life, except the one with death.
So there's a few basic assumptions:
-- The prediction would tell you the exact date, with 100% accuracy.
-- It is the day you "would've died anyways". Car accident in a week? It would tell you.
-- This information would ONLY be known by you, and cannot/will not be shared.
-- Nothing you can do will change/prolong your life. (i.e. you cannot change your actions, it's destiny).
I know this seems all a bit farfetched, but humor me here.
