Out of curiosity as we're doing this in english at the moment, if someone made something that could give your immortality, would you take it?
And i mean real immortality, not just slowing down the ageing process
The answer for me would be YES. I do want to be immortal, I do wish I can stay 16 forever or if I feel like it grow a bit older. Over the course of a 1000 years I may have several wives... which may sound wrong.
YEA But I really want to see, is our technology 50 yrs, 100 yrs, 1000 yrs, etc... from now and see how far we have advanced. Also I'ld like to see what would happen to our gas supply...
And then when the earth blows up... I swim to another planet.
And that's obviously what would happen.
Immortallity has a price.... plus it would be too boring...i want to see what's on the other side....but not too soon!
I would really like to say yes. Truely, I would. But immortality...it's just...you live. And live. And live. Actually, maybe someday I will be immortal, which is kinda weird to think about.
I don't know. *shrugs* I think I'd rather die and go to heaven. Then I';; be immortal.
also if you live forever and i big ass comet comes and blows up the earth, your just left floating about in a lonely eternity. now that WOULD suck, id rather die
Immortality is not good. At all. I mean, it sounds good that you live forever, you stay young forever, and all that jazz. But is it really that good? Heck no. It wouldn't be good to stuck somewhere for eternity. It would get boring and all. And if your friends aren't immortal, you would see them dying, and you would be alone... Meh, I can't really express myself.
Well, all I'm saying is that it wouldn't be good. So my answer is no.
I'd go for immortality. Think about how much you could achieve. It would be a great boon if the same great minds could think forever.
The only problem comes when we get criminal masterminds or serial killers living forever. We would have to take care of them indefinately.
And getting a life sentence would take on a whole new meaning.
the soul is "immortal". More precisely: sempeternal
I'd probably want to be immortal only to see how things turn out in the future and all the cool technological advances. But my ultimate answer is no. I don't believe that you would experience a full life without aging and gaining wisdom through all that life experience if you knew you were immortal. I'd probably be chased around by crazy scientists trying to figure out the secrets of immortality and then life would just suck.
I'd never want to be immortal. This life is too damn big for me. I wouldn't want to see losing all my loved once over time. Plus there's not that much things we can't finish in one life time (I think!).
