    I don't want to die -- but I don't want to live forever, either. So I guess I'd rather die, than not die.

    (That question -- plus, reading "Interview with the Vampire" when I was pretty young -- is why I would never want to be immortal.)

    I dont want to loose my being, so my idea of immortal is unaging and disease free and possible enhanced regeneration. Not being completely unkillable.

    The most impervious immortal I'd probably dare to be is 'the face of Bo' aka Harkness from doctor who.

    Seriously man...living forever = hell. There's only so much human stupidity I can bare to witness.
    Haha true but on the other hand, it'd be a shame not to witness the great inventions or discoveries of the future. But the point is, creativity is partly due to the prospect of certain death (imo). So with immortality, no deadlines, perhaps there will be no more desire to achieve something significant for humanity...

    @xisnotx What do you think about transhumanism ?

    Even if that means giving up experiencing death...

    Then, I'd do it.

    I just don't want to die. Ever.

    Maybe I'm weird...but man, this is awesome! Life!

    And the fact that I won't be here to see all its awesomeness..

    Just sucks.

    Is that so wrong?
    Sounds normal to me. I'm the same way. Life just seems way too short to experience what I want to experience and learn what I want to learn. But immortality also seems unsettling. What if I got bored and there was no way out? I think that would be a very, very long time before I reached that state, far longer than what the normal human life span is. So I think what I really want is a greatly increased human life span with the option to 'opt out' of life.

    I sometimes wonder if my attitude of not wanting to die is a selfish one. If we were all immortal, there would be a serious overpopulation and crowding problem, eventually there wouldn't be reproduction by natural means because we would grow too old. It's like, I don't want to leave this planet to make room for new life.

    I don't think there is. It's only natural to fear death. Many of us would undergo that phase/thinking at some point, so you're not alone at all. We're not gifted with eternal life, but that shouldn't matter as long as we try our very best to live truthfully and happily. Just enjoy it Everyone shares the same fate.
