    Default Would you be an immortal?

    Would you accept the gift of immortality if it was offered to you?

    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.

    It would only be tempting if it didn't include aging, wouldn't want my body to age and still be immortal.

    No way.

    Would you get all excited over a million dollars if you could only buy a hamburger with it?

    Mortality gives life its meaning.

    I don't know if I am or not and I don't think I've got a choice.

    I disagree, living is what gives life it's meaning. Death is just something yet to be conquered.

    I don't know about "conquering" death. If that is achieved then it is by something larger and more powerful than my human abilities.

    I would say death is something to be experienced.

    Maybe, but a few hundred years or a thousand would suit me better.

    Yeah maybe. Life gets its juice from learning and experiencing. Engaging with life. Death doesn't give life it's meaning. I suppose it does in a "your on the clock" kind of way but that's not life. Not the core anyway.
