    Don't think I'd want to live forever.

    Dying somewhere around 120 or 130, as it may be realistic to believe so, would be just fine for me.

    Yep! So I guess I agree with pretty much everybody so far. But to answer the question about learning being finite... I don't think it is, but I think I'd sense enough trends that I'd just get sick of humanity in general after a while. Which is when I'd leave this earthly plane...

    The idea is definitely intriguing. Everyone has to make choices in life. We give things up we would like to do all the time. If I lived forever I would have the chance to experience many more things and learn so much more. It would be very hard to pass up...

    People I know keep dying. I've had this problem for hundreds of years.

    This is a common question, and it has a common answer by most people who have thought about it for even a few moments.

    No.

    The reasons are obvious.

    it reminds me of 'death becomes her'.
    i don't want it.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    Under the right conditions, absolutely. There is so much to learn, explore, create...I think the possibilities are infinite.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    No, and I think this Zen story illustrates it quite well. The natural course of life.

    A rich man asked a Zen master to write something down that could encourage the prosperity of his family for years to come. It would be something that the family could cherish for generations. On a large piece of paper, the master wrote, "Father dies, son dies, grandson dies."

    The rich man became angry when he saw the master's work. "I asked you to write something down that could bring happiness and prosperity to my family. Why do you give me something depressing like this?"

    "If your son should die before you," the master answered, "this would bring unbearable grief to your family. If your grandson should die before your son, this also would bring great sorrow. 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."
