If it was possible, would you actually want to live forever?

  • I would want it BUT ONLY if that meant I would Also be completely feeling absolutely no more pain and no more suffering, and does not require me to perform maintenance of such immortality such as drinking someone's blood, or absorbing someone else's life force or soul which are examples of "maintaining" conditions for immortality, although I usually would expect them to require some kind of maintenance as a drawback.

    If I got a totally painless and impossible to suffer kind of way to live forever I would presume that I can't feel boredom or pleasure either as a side-effect, thus meaning I can't really feel anything, but I suppose it's a fair penalty and trade off, and I'd be willing to pay, but in the end I find that I should and wold only serve the purpose of finding out and recording down and documenting everything and saving all records and information pertaining to all of Earth and humanity's history should the human species ever became extinct after a few thousand years or million years later.

    The Last thing I would want is to be buried alive and fucking trapped somewhere for all eternity, as that would be fucking torturous. If I don't feel anything, well I guess I would be stuck there for a long time at least until someone or something finds me and gets me out of there or that the planet is destroyed by a supernova or something.

    If pain and suffering was still possible that meant a person living forever then I figured that meant that kind of immortal can potentially be captured, enslaved and tortured repeatedly, hence why I rather be feeling absolutely nothing if I were going to be living forever, even if I were immortal and captured no harm can be inflicted upon me, regardless.

  • I saw a documentary about this and if there was a procedure that could make people immortal it would be so expensive that only the richest people could afford it and if the rich never die they never stop making money and therefore the rich would get richer and the poor would get poorer, it would impact the global economy in a really bad way unless you were a billionaire... It's s good concept but but it would be a really bad thing if it was real. I can't remember what the documentary was called but it was pretty interesting

  • Not for ever but let's say until I wish to day u know when I feel I've done everything. Living for ever would be more of curse than a blessing a few thousand years would do for me.

  • No because the mind wants to let go after some time. The body can last but our minds probably wouldn't want to

    • Imagine how meaningless this moment would be or tomorrow morning would be if you had eternity

      Might as well sleep for 10 million years and wake up but you can't cause your a human

    • Very true.

    • Depends on what drives the person.

  • no way in hell, if it was possible i want to be dead right now.

  • I believe that there is some kind of afterlife or something but im not sure. personally I dont like living right now but im sure some people like living enough that they would want to live forever. Im wondering what "life" is like after we die.

  • Yes but there isn't really forever, right?

    It's going to be pretty terrifying witnessing the heat death of the universe, billions of years from now. I'm brave enough to try, but that's quite a lot of time.
