“We’re all gonna die one day of course,” Tyson told his guest of the day who happened to be therapist Sean McFarland, who specializes in trauma and addiction
“Then, when I look in the mirror, I see those little spots on my face, I say, ‘Wow. That means my expiration date is coming close, really soon.”

He also reflected on how he had come to detach from the love of money, saying he knew it did not necessarily translate to love and happiness.

“Money don’t mean s**t to me," he said in the podcast.
"I always tell people: they think money’s gonna make them happy, they’ve never had money before — when you have a lot of money, you can’t expect nobody to love you.
"How am I gonna confess my love to you when you have $500 billion?
"You believe nothing can happen. You don’t believe the banks could collapse. You believe that you’re invincible when you have a lot of money, which isn’t true.
"That’s why I always say money is a false sense of security.”

According to Tyson, money will not prevent anyone from the inevitable tragedies of life.
