Tycoon;3569737But would you want to live forever? That is the big question. Eventually, you'd get extremely bored, and (even with all this technology) you'd probably die of boredom.

There's a bit about the question of immortality in Swift's Gulliver's Travels. I believe it's in the third section, A Voyage to Laputa. Gulliver is given the opportunity to escape death forever and become immortal, but then he sees some of the people who have chosen it. They just keep aging, beyond the point where normal people die. They become continually more weak and frail. Gulliver decided a life like that is not worth living, even if it could go on forever. He opts out of immortality.

I suppose there's a moral there. What do we really have to gain from immortality? Most things we want to accomplish in life, we end up doing before we die. What would make going on infinitely worth it?

:confused: I must have missed where we were rude to you. There is strong strong evidence...fact that after we die there is a conversion of large energies of some sort. I don't see much edivence of heaven but as a relgious man I keep my faith.

It would be worse if only you were given immortality, to watch your relatives and friends die. And then your children, your children's children, your children's children's children... But eventually, everything would blur into the same. There would be nothing worth doing, because no matter what, you have done it before.

i think that when you die the experience is no different then it was before your birth. Do you remember anything before you were born? do you remember existing before you were born?no, because you didntt exist, and when you die you no longer exist,just like before you were born, and when your dead you wont even know you knowyour dead.

This is actually such a simple yet great point. I cannot believe i haven't brought this up in an argument before. :bows:

People do not exist before they are born, and they do not exist after they die.

well, their bodies still exist, but not what they are. However, i think that what you are exists in other people, like memories of you, things like that. In that way, you dont truly die.
