  • IF you had the choice to become immortal, would you?


  • #2
    THIS IS FOR 36 years young and Above....35 and below will have a different Poll!

    If tomorrow you had to make a decision of having to become immortal, would you decide to become immortal and live forever, or carry on as is in your current life? Please post your age and do not just respond yes or no, but justify your answer, i.e. tell us why? Or this won't work

        Ben.


        Ahhhhh! Don't you think living forever would be a pretty big change in one's life? Not being able to die, has it pros and cons...This is why this is poll might be a little thought provoking....I know,I know, it requires people to think a little...

          I plan to become immortal when my life on earth is ended. Then I will trade in my mortal body for an immortal body, suited for the world of spirits. But I don't have a strong desire to continue living in this painful body of flesh forever. (current age, 65)

          And what does immortality have to do with being nude? I'm always nude -- just that sometimes it's inside my clothes.

            Given the chance at immortality I think that I would pass on that chance. In 80 years or so every one I currently know would be dead and gone. I would be alone in a world of strangers. A world that is constantly changing would require my physically and mentally running after it knowing that I can not win that race.
            Also immortality of my life would be worthless without immortality of my body. Can you just immagine having a two or three thousand year old body without body immortality to go along with your life immortality? After the first hundred year your would look like the "Cript Keeper" or worse!
            I have heard it said that to each person and thing there is a season, a time span for existance. Consider this, Live what time you have with honor, integrety and purpose so that you will not need to be immortal to leave your mark behind you when you too are gone. Age 61 Sawdust

              I cannot vote either way, I would not like to live forever, nor can I vote no because I do not particularly care for my life the way it is. Before anyone thinks I am suicidal, or suffering from depression, or anything along those lines, I have chronic fatique syndrome. To live forever with this is just not an option, when I have live the rest of this life to live with it.

                Don't forget about having to watch out for other immortals looking to cut your head off. What a pain that is. sheesh. (Does anyone else hear Queen playing in the background.)

                  I have enjoyed watching the technology and the world change throughout my 53 years. I would not wish to be immortal as I look forward to sharing time with my grandchildren (when I get them) telling the story of my life like my great-grandmother did prior to her death at 100. She loved watching things change and made me more aware of what I have taken for granted as I grew up. Being immortal would do nothing for me.

                    Nope. In the long run, that would be like watching "Seinfeld" reruns over and over and over again; since history tends to repeat itself.
                    As far as technological advances; do they really improve the quality of life? I think it would be saddening to stick around and witness all that.

                    Almost forgot...I'm 35.

                      I want to live forever, as I am having much fun here and now. I am enjoying the relationships with friends and I don't want it to stop by my dying, - even at my advanced age of over 70. I will attempt to live as long as I can, and immortality would be good indeed.

                        Yes I would take a drug or treatment to be immortal. While I believe strongly in God and the afterlife I enjoy life and would love the opportunity to do everything I could before some carwreck or asteroid made the drug unimportant.

                            If the body could be preserved as well then frog is right. Immortality does have its pros and cons. All of your friends and family would grow up and die without you. Would you want someone there to be with you? If so, how would you choose that person? Could you stay friends with someone for eternity?

                            Being off the wheel of life has its disadvantages. But if you could learn and continue to advance your life every day, maybe even advancing science, then that could be positive for everyone.

                            Although being the only immortal would make you lonely for companionship and will tend to turn one into a philosopher.

                              Bob, the oldest woman I ever met was in her late nineties and enjoying life and making new friends. Assuming good health and a degree of mobility, why not keep on living?

                              But you are right, the ancients tend to become philosophers.
