I just don't see time as a determining factor to what I accomplish. I do what I want and work to achieve the goals I set, so immortal or not I'd probably just continue on as I do now. I might set higher and more long term goals but most likely I'd set much the same ones I do now.

Keep in mind, some very significant historical figures lives very short lives.

I would study AI systems...like a fiend. ...because in the long run everyone you know is going to die around you. The older you get the faster time will fly past you. Unless you can find a way to create a long term companion you will be lonely a lot. I have abandonment issues lol.

My ideal form of immortality would require an AI to implement and manage.

Purely biological body has too many limitations, and an imprisonment/burial scenario is a statistical certainty given sufficient time. Placing the seat of my consciousness in a computer sidesteps that issue.

I would not want to alter my consciousness to the point where I am the AI, so I would need an AI to manage the computer for me. It could either construct and manage a full scale simulation to my specifications or handle all the messy details of letting me live in a biological body while keeping my computer back-up in sync. The biological body would be fully mortal and no more durable than anyone else. If need be I, or the AI, could pull the plug, either returning me to my simulation or constructing a new body.

As a side benefit, I could extend the technology to another individual or even have the AI design a companion with the perfect complementary personality. I could even have the AI alter my memories to forget the companion was designed to be my match/rival.

I would most likely just roam the universe for ever and watch as humanity advances through the universe and finding new species, but i would most likely want to live for when they have Virtual reality and then id just do that forever, SAO to the max.
