    If this ever happens, I'll get back to you. Until then, I do not know. I mean, I don't really have any positive hopes for what this world will be like 1000+ years on. And if I were immortal, eventually I'd get fried by the sun blowing up. If I weren't frozen, drowned, or crushed before then. But I'm assuming immortal means immortal like Lord of the Rings elves (ie. living forever but can be killed physically or by grief), not immortal like a god (and yet, even gods can die...).

    i would definitely accept. i would study everything i wanted to do.
    And i hope with the immortality would come with 20/20 vision, etc etc.

    But on one condition. i can choose to die whenever. i dont think if i can't kill myself ever.. that would be despair. i like living but not for that long.

    On second thoughts I think it might not be so great. I remembered the story of the student asking the Zen monk the secret to happiness.
    His answer was Father dies, son dies, grandson dies...If your family, generation after generation, disappears in the order I have described, it will be the natural course of life. This is true happiness and prosperity.

    Full story.

    Definitely not. While I wouldn't mind my lifespan increasing by a millennia, true immortality is what I might consider to be a curse.

    I would accept immortality for the sake of avoiding my biggest fear: Death. I am afraid to die because I don't want my life to have been a waste. Humans, in comparison to the things which have been around in one single life for hundreds of years [I'm talking like..plants here, ok? ], have a very insignificant amount of time to live. It frightens me to know I won't be here anymore. Of course, my belief in reincarnation ought to curb the fear a little, but only just. I don't want to be brought back as a cockroach or something, vile little creatures :steam:

    However, immortality offered to everybody could very well result in a massive increase of overpopulation. So the stipulations being that this is something only offered to a choice few-- yes, I would take-- and that this gift could be returned once I am satisfied with my accomplishments..yes, I would take it-- and you know, staying young or at least an acceptably young enough age [let's go with 25-30 years? or current age?] works for me, too.

    [then again, I suppose the short duration of a human life is incentive to make the most of it while you can? Even so, not everybody is able to reach their highest goals even with hard work and determination...a conundrum..]

    I didn't read the rest of the posts since there can be no reasonable argument countering my 'HELL YEA'.

    LOL

    So long as you're satisfied by this argument, then who are the rest of us to judge?

    I would love to be immortal as long as I could learn and explore hobbies. I wouldn't want to be an immortal in a coma tose state- I am interested in everything- being immortal would actually give me an endless opportunity to learn, try and see all my hearts desire!

    I honestly think I would, I have always asked myself this question and my answer has always been a constant yes. I have heard people reply that they would eventually be saddened by all the death of loved ones that would come with it, but I believe I would still accept it and take the chance to see if I could handle that kind of constant loss.

    I just feel like the time we have is so short and limited, so much to do, so much to learn. I mean doesn't that just amaze you at times? just how many things there are to learn and damn it not enough time to learn it, see it, experience it all? It blows my mind sometimes.

    I'm gutted I am going to miss out on so much, so yes if I had a way of becoming immortal I would take it.....unless of course it involved someone else needing to lose their life, then I would do the honourable thing.
    Yes, but not in an unsatisfactory state of being. Hell
