    Default Would you like to live forever?

    Reactionary thread to Gromit's

    If you had the chance to live forever (never die) would you?

    Let's assume you wouldn't get older either. You reach physical maturity (20s) and stop there.

    Why or why not?

    Yeah, as long as it didnt involve any freaky shit like in the Book of Skulls.

    Yes, so long as there were the option of suicide if I ever got sick of it. The attraction would be the endless time to explore and learn the things that interest me.

    So learning/interest is finite in your opinion?

    Not in a body. If I could be a spirit with the same consciousness, I'd be happy to live forever. Even a 20 year old body is a lot of trouble, especially if it's female. But I do hate the idea that I won't know how it all turns out because I'll die before the world ends (probably).

    I don't think there would be an end of things to learn about, but other aspects of life could possibly wear on you after awhile and override the desire to keep going, like monotonous type stuff or say, 200 years of Dark Age conditions where your ability to explore and learn are constrained by force. It would still be hard to turn down though, even if you knew that was coming, because I'd be like "I can handle 200 years of despotism."

    As long as the option of suicide remains, absolutely. Being able to change identity once in a while would be handy though as refusing to die would raise suspiction at some point.

    Imagine the things you can learn and master, the things you would see and experience!
