I'd want it for myself, but for everyone in the world **** no. The planet is already overpopulated. And generations dying and being replaced is necessary for social progress. Imagine if every segregation era white person was still alive today. We wouldn't have President Obama. Or if every Baby Boomer was still alive. Classic rock would be popular ****ing ew.

I'd like it, just to see where humanity goes when normally I'd be gone. Would not enjoy everyone I care about dying around me though.

I'd like it. Or at least I'd like to stop physically aging at 25-30, **** getting old.
#16
Immortality is literally the worst thing I can think of. I would never get anything done because I'd just think, "Meh, I have the rest of forever to do that."
#17
Immortality I'm not sure about. Living very long? Sure

I'm reading Heinlein's Time enough for love at the moment, and it's about some really old dude and about people rejuvenating and stuff. It sounds pretty cool.

Classic rock being popular would be a bad thing...? Come ooooon.

Anyways, yeah it would be cool to be immortal but either it would turn into an arena-pit free for all or there would be a severe limit on people having children.

Now that I think about it that actually sounds cool so I'm actually okay with it ha ha ha.

Why? If we were immortal, overpopulation wouldn't be an issue, because we could just live in the ocean, or underground, or in space on any planet we wanted. And the universe is infinitely expanding, so there would constantly be more room for us to occupy.

Ooohhh THAT kind of immortality. I was just thinking they meant aging wouldn't be a cause of death. Not the Superman kind.

TBH I'm not sure what the standard definition of immortality is. I guess we would have to ask OP to clarify.

I'm talking about immortality that's actually within the realm of possibility, when our cells are replaced by nanobots that can slow, halt or even reverse the aging process. We could still die from unnatural causes duh.

Depends.

Would I be exempt from any diseases or conditions that would leave me completely debilitated but technically still alive? Being alive but in a vegetative state or living in unending agony does not sound desirable at all. If so, maybe or definitely if the effects of aging don't affect me.

Telomerase research hopes to achieve this soon. You'd only die from being killed. Or disease.

Some scientists believe that the reason people age is because as we get older our cells divide slower, because we run out of telomeres on our DNA. Every time a cell divides, it loses a little bit more. Lose too much, and it cuts into your DNA. So it's rationed.

If we never lost our telomeres, our skin wouldn't sag and wrinkle, our muscles wouldn't waste away, etc.

Your wish may very well come true.

Even the idea of surviving your own death is frightening. Imagine, like, the 40 millionth year in heaven. Think about that. You'd be so out of shit to do.

It'd be a lot more hellish if your memory was wiped clean in specified intervals of time, only to be left with remnants of your previous memory surrounding you. Little reminders and clues as to who you were and how you ended up in your current state, with no readily available myth to tie it all together for you. An eternal affair full of absurdities and amnesia. Yeesh...

In a nutshell, that's what you're currently experiencing. Remove all the superficial distractions and you'll find that humanity is one persistent genomic sequence that continuously recreates this scenario. A person can rant and rave all they want about their own unique individuality, but at the end of the day, you're just an extension of the same undulating electrochemical mass (your species) reliving itself in an environment that its vestigial members left before it.

Folks are making a giant hubbub about eternal life... they don't realize this has been going on ever since the world began. They don't want eternal life, they want eternal "I".
#37
immortality, no. same with afterlife would rather not.

age slowly and live for several hundred years, maybe. on one hand it'd be depressing but then I can be around for more shit.

if we're talking the type of immortality where nothing can ever kill you, I always wonder what the **** you do when the sun swallows the earth. or wtf do you do after the heat death of the universe? just chill in nothingness forever? assuming humans don't get advanced enough to prevent this.

But anyway, the real question is not whether you want to be immortal, it's whether you want to be a jellyfish.
