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.

Moral of the story.......... You need to actually know the darn story

well not everyone is going to feel the same way as me and some will request to die.

Doesn't make people like me who would rather feel pain then not feel at all go away ;)

Honestly it's the fact that i prefer pain over death that i am still alive to this day and didn't die oh so long ago when most people would have killed themselves.

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.




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


Well if that is truly how you think being immortal would be like then that's that.

It's how i feel and most autistic people feel haha.

Nothing like living a life of eternal loneliness and pain i mean compared to the alternative.

I'm just saying grouping everyone into the same group and saying no one would like immortality it's a curse and terrible is a very shortsighted and naive way to think.

An eternity of loneliness. I think people would even begin to hate you because they are not immortal and you are. Seems like nothing good will come from being immortal.

No one in particular just wanted to make a point that it isn't since most people think that it is.

Honestly i seem to have forgotten my reason for even making that point
