And to add, even with invincible immortality I can see myself at a point where you'd just have to stop thinking at all to end yourself. It can count as death in a way (thanks Jojo).

So, are you referring to that you want to earn your immortality by doing something like collecting all Dragon balls?

I would probably learn and catalog a lot of different things for myself, but later on start to come to face that dilemma everyone saw coming, wishing that I could die. Because if you live long enough to see all of your friends and loved ones pass away, and be alone forever, well it must be awful.

But if you had the ability to give you and your friends/family immortality then what would you do?

Do all the drugs and drink all the alcohol.

Remember, you'll still feel the effects of the drugs/alcohol even if you're a immortal. So in other words you'll feel like s**t. Do you still want to do drugs as a immortal?

I already know. So, yes.

Actually....if I don't die and my body can heal (if my tissues can die, I am not immortal after all), then I would.

You may not die by it.... But you'll still feel the pain.

There's no pain from drinking and drugs unless you do WAY TOO MUCH. And at that point it's not even enjoyable anymore. Being immortal just allows a person to indulge frequently without worry that their body will degenerate and their organs will fail more quickly.

Only if I could not have children. Think on why.

I would try and discover a way to kill myself, so that I or someone else can end my existence when I eventually go insane. In the meantime, I'd try and lay low or go into hiding, quietly existing. I don't want to be a lab rat.

Ahem, live forever as *an immortal, not "a immortal." Sorry, the grammar was bothering me.

For the sake of discussion, it might be good to clarify the conditions of immortality one is talking about: From OP, one does not and cannot die, and cannot be killed by any means. To make it more interesting, one should probably also say that one's body and mind never deteriorate, accumulate effects of disease or injury, and that if one could even be wounded or diseased at all, these would all heal completely in a timely fashion automatically without residual effect. (Example: C.C. from Code Geass)

Even with this, one isn't invincible or necessarily even all that powerful. Immortality is but one of God's attributes. Even if one couldn't be harmed, one could still be overpowered, immobilized , imprisoned (e.g. sealed away like nuclear waste), or otherwise neutralized. No super powers are included other than immortality itself. Also, while one would have all the time in the universe to observe, study and learn, one's natural intelligence isn't necessarily enhanced, and one could still forget things or be misled (just like any of us do now, even those of us in the prime of youth-- arguably not me anymore!).

Even so, I'm inclined to think immortality like this might not be too bad at all. While finite, just the earth itself and humanity itself are seemingly infinite in their complexity and diversity. If one can delight in the significance of even small things, there's a whole world out there to discover, and as time passes ever onward, new stories are taking place all the time. If the rest of the universe is ever opened to real detailed exploration, how much more will there be to learn! True, loved ones will pass, and that will be sad, but one will meet others and still others. Something I don't know at all how it would affect me, though, is that I'd be a witness to a seemingly endless trail of tragedy. Along with beauty, there's also death, cruelty, and all sorts of other ugliness in this world as well. Would I take it in stride, or be overwhelmed by it all, I don't know.
