I once briefly met a woman, a few years ago, who told me she had been brought up strict Roman Catholic, including being educated in a convent. She said to me that the nuns used to tell the children that they (humans) started to die the moment they were born (or possibly conceived, I'm not sure).

Personally, I thought that was stretching it a bit. But now that I'm nearly 60 years old, I think it might arguably be at least more applicable, to describe the underlying nature of my so far continuing existence. :)
