As the title reads, would you live forever if you could? Why? Why not? :confused:

Croft, Lara
07-08-09, 14:18
No. You may live forever but the people around you don't. You'd be surrounded by constant loss. And what about when man dies out? You'd just be lonely forever.

Catracoth
07-08-09, 14:19
Croft, Lara pretty much summed up my opinion.

Okay, after the first, say, few hundred years, everything's still fine and well. You've seen a few generations of people live and die, and had this happen to your family. Oh well, they were likely douches you could live without anyway at some points. Companionship is companionship, or so you think.
Not so fast: You know how when you were younger (by human terms, a child), an hour seemed like forever to you? As people grow, their brain starts to perceive time differently. An hour feels like less time. Now extend that logic to a year, or a decade, or a century. This means that eventually, you will be completely unable to form relationships with human beings because their lives and deaths will flash past you like a tape on fast-forward.


Let's keep going into the future, since you're a sociopathic recluse and think you're still okay with this whole immortality thing. There are so many things that could go wrong with the planet, an asteroid strike, nuclear war, the LHC, but let's assume the planet somehow makes it through all that without being reduced to dust.
Five billion years from now or so, the Sun expands into a red giant. You survive the first roasting, but nothing else does. The Sun eventually rips planet Earth into rubble with gravity. So now there you are floating in outer space, drifting along, or getting a *****ing tan at the heart of the Sun so you can pick up some killer alien chicks in the Andromeda galaxy if you ever get there (you won't).


Either way, a few trillion years later, the universe starts to really show its entropy. Every where is the same. No stars, no planets, no black holes, just an empty, cold mass of subatomic particles that can never come together again. And you, floating along in the void. Forever.
Quoted from cracked.

so pretty much, I say no to immortality because I want to have friends and celebrate a fruitful life.

Depends really. If you could choose to die at anytime and were indestructible at the same time? Hell yes. :D Otherwise, no.

No. What is the point of living when everyone you love and respect dies, and everything you live for surpasses it's time?

07-08-09, 14:22
Why would anyone want to live forever, you see you friends die, and maybe your kids (if you have any) and whats left is just you, yeah you could make new friends and make a new family, but its just a circle it keeps coming back to the same thing

Indestructable and Immortal are two different things.

Immortal simply means you don't die with the passage of time - you won't die of old age. You can be killed, injured etc.

Indestructable is exactly that - nothing can harm you - but you may still die of old age.

That said........ hmmmmmm.................. I could handle the immortality thing.

50-60 years of life is more than enough. Hoping to kick the bucket before I get too old and sick anyways.

Catapharact
07-08-09, 14:36
Offcourse your average mindset would say that immortality means little to them since they really have nothing much to live for in this world then living out their life and have little to no goals for their community or for the world.

Some one who has the power to invoke change on a local or even global scale would want the power of immortality which would allow them to fulfill their given task that might require time that spans beyond just one life time.

Its easy to say that one doesn't want to be immortal if one doesn't have anyone else to live for but him/her self.

It's a difficult question to honestly answer. If given the chance, I'd have to think about it.

In the end, I'd say yes. I want to watch human civilization grow and evolve, I'm very interested in seeing where we are heading as a species and as a civilization. However, I would take it on the stipulation that if I will be able to do by my own choosing if and when I decide to.

07-08-09, 15:39
It's very tempting. To think of all you could see and learn. Future civilisations, how communities all over the world change, it certainly is very tempting. Of course the downside is that everyone you love will die which is sad but then death shouldn't be a way out of suffering from other people dying. Anyway, I'd have to think about it. I'd probably not - although if I had the option to end my immortality whenever I wanted...

i would never want to be immortal. maybe if it was to live 100 years older, then yes. i would love to see what the world is like in 100 years; like the technology, the government, are there any aliens, etc. thats why ive always wanted to be cryogenically frozen, but not until scientists have figured out how to revive the person, but i digress.

i wouldnt want to live forever, because in the end, we all want to see what the afterlife is like, and you cant see the afterlife, if you will never die.

If we're talking about immortality solely as in not being crippled by the passing of time - then yes, definitely. Think of all the things you can do and achieve if you had so much time!

But if we're talking about immortality in the sense of totally incapable of dying at all, then I'd probably pass.

Example: if climate change really is happening, what kind of disasters would we witness in the future? If a huge number of species becomes extinct, if a nuclear war happens, etc. etc. etc. Hell, a Terminator or 1984 or Mad Max scenario could happen. :p


What if all of that happens, and then THIS happens (just take the setting into mind only) :

I would yes, I long to see what will happen...

And can't think of any reason at this moment in time, which would cause me to say no.

Offcourse your average mindset would say that immortality means little to them since they really have nothing much to live for in this world then living out their life and have little to no goals for their community or for the world.

Some one who has the power to invoke change on a local or even global scale would want the power of immortality which would allow them to fulfill their given task that might require time that spans beyond just one life time.

Its easy to say that one doesn't want to be immortal if one doesn't have anyone else to live for but him/her self.

I agree. Imagine the change you could make. Your personal experiences could shape the future through warning and admonision. Your wisdom can lead nations toward peace and prosperity.

OK smart asses. I obviously didn't mean "getting worst than the wonderful world we had 200 years ago". I meant, getting worst than what it is now. It might happen and it would be horrible to witness it. Example: if climate change really is happening, what kind of disasters would we witness in the future? If a huge number of species becomes extinct, if a nuclear war happens, etc. etc. etc. Hell, a Terminator or 1984 or Mad Max scenario could happen. :p

Who says we don't already? I hope the camera doesn't see me in the angle:pi:

Yes, I'm pessimist. :wve:

:yah: Great! :hug:

If I also had the chance of ending it then yes. I think I'd like to see how the world looks like in 100 years. Would life become better, or are we actually killing ourselves?
What happens after death is also appealing to know.

Hmm, the whole "constantly losing loved ones" sounds bad. What if me and a lover were both immortal? Then it'd never be lonely.

I would like to be immortal.

There's so much I want to do & learn in this world, maybe I could have a chance to create/improve something in the future :)

But you'd probably get sick of your lover after such a long time! :o

I've actually been thinking about it ever since I've seen documents about slowing down the aging and perhaps even reaching the so called immortality (no aging, no diseases).. but what kind of chaos would that bring? Most likely fights between religions and science as a whole. Terrorist leaders/mad men wanting it first and let their minions sacrifice themselves for their new Gods (immortal leaders) and most likely later only lead for rich people having it (and I mean truly rich) who can enjoy their immortality by doing nothing else than spending money and laughing at the mortals.

Then comes to problem of overpopulating the whole earth since there is no death anymore.. Find a way to live on some other planet (since you're already immortal) and then maybe, just maybe I would consider it. Hard since I still have faith in God and I can already foresee the chaos in the future..

If none of that chaos were to happen and people would live peacefully together, then sure I suppose. If it were just for me, no. I couldn't handle losing the ones I love, falling in love again, losing them, falling in love, repeat.

I wouldn't take it because I would miss all the loved ones in my life. However if I could be a ghost or spirit and haunt rock concerts and cinemas I'd have the time of my life!

I dont know, its hard. Because lonely, but I have a SUPER fear of death, so its kinda hard for me.

I wouldn't take immortality if it were offered to me, because one lifetime of stress is plenty enough for me! Plus I can't imagine outliving everyone and everything I knew while growing up.

I'd want an extended lifespan. Like 250 years or so. Life is just too short. But I wouldn't want to live forever. I'd want to be reuinited with my friends and family eventually. Plus I'd want the total human experience, be it good or bad. Besides living forever would be a lifetime of loss. A thousand lifetimes of it. So no thanks. You can add another 100 yrs to mine, but that's it.
