I find that very weird, immortality means constant survival which means constant experience. You'd be an apex being. I can't fathom why someone could desire non existence to existence. Oh well, carry on.


An eternity. After a time... All things will have been done, all stuff tried... All fun had. The Sun will die, Earth will burn, then freeze. A meteor will destroy earth. You are now floating through space for all of eternity. Alone, isolated, with no hope of ever meeting someone again in the vastness of space.

Doesn't sound very fun to me. I could see living... 200-300 years. Anything more than that would be torture.

Edit: Not to mention you could never love. Or you could... for the first 5 husbands/wives. I don't feel like loving after loosing 1. Time can only heal so many wounds before the scars stick forever.


lol if we make it to a type-2 civilization which could be in a couple thousand years, not even a supernova would kill off humanity. then comes the brain altering tech to do whatever we want

i dont get why ppl can think they know how an immortal would feel when statistics and graphs show that people suck at even looking a decade ahead. experience>predictions. them ppl be like i like cola flavored chips then they try it n be like nope, nvm

I would make sure I spent at least a year standing in one spot not moving... Just so I can say I did it.

Immortal life would be the worst curse that could be bestowed on someone.

You would watch the people you love, and your friends and family, get old and die. True, you could make new friends, and find new loves, but you would see them get old and die also.

Then there is the possibility of something happening that would kill off all of humanity, or worse, all living things, and you would be stuck here, the last man standing, all by yourself, possibly on a barren planet.

Could you see yourself living on a planet like Mars forever? Nothing living, no plants or animals, just you.

Truly immortal beings would probably only have one wish, to die.


Subjective right there.

Ones curse is anothers gift.

At some later point, I'd like to leave the planet and enter a dormant state until I find intelligent life.

Well, that is for you. I do believe I know myself pretty well. I know what I would like and what I wouldn't like. If I have already tried to off myself 4 times... I imagine an eternity would suck pretty hard. Least I am dying in 20 years so I don't have to worry about this shit!!

I would probably find a way to kill myself. I would not be happy knowing I can't die. If I still can't find a way, I guess I will start helping people.

I'd like to watch humanity grow.

Who am I kidding? When it's available.. VR all day, yo.

Not really you can easily accept that.

I mean i accept i will see my mother die for example sure it will be sad but that's how it is.

You got to keep on living for those who died :)


Yes it's easy to understand that because it's within our normal life span. Go past that and the feeling of being alone will slowly creep up.

I agree. For those who think they can do it without going mad after a few hundred years. Let's see them live on a deserted island for a years without befriending a coconut.

I've been immortal all this time and so far, nothing worth mentioning.

Depends i have always been and felt alone all my life.

There are not many of my kind of people (Aspergers) where i live and i only feel like i'm not some alien when i'm around people with Aspergers.


So as someone who has felt like an alien and alone all there life ......easy i can do it i prefer to be isolated then to be around people also

Complete isolation without anyone to talk to will drive anyone mad.

Well depending on if they have internet or not as that counts as a form of communication.

I would rather starve forever and sleep on the streets then die myself and honestly being isolated is something i want.

I hope to oneday work a job from home that makes me enough income that i can lock myself away indoors for the majority of my time and the year only going out for necessary things.

I live like that mostly already i spend 99% of my time inside and on the computer studying watching tv if i didn't have either i would just sit in the room with my thoughts.

The worst thing that could happen is the isolation causes you to make a second personality in which you can communicate and talk to and i can say for one thing talking to yourself and having a conversation with yourself can be quite entertaining and amazing
