Hans Schwantz Posted 4 months ago If the cure for mortality is found within your lifetime, would you go for it and become immortal? Remember, before you read my comments, they are my personal views for me only. I am not converting anyone to these views. I do not wish to argue anyone about the views just chime in what another person feels about the conversation material content only. The hospitals and doctors offices are always full of people seeking to get better from whatever health ailment is plaguing them. The various religions that teach an eternal life after this mortal life are usually full of believers generation after generation. The stories you hear how grateful people are that survive cancer, other health issues, disasters such as tornadoes, earthquakes, etc. 81% of surveyed Americans believe in life after death. What is the point of these comments I have written above? The point being that most of us do not want sickness, death or ageing in our lives. We simply do not need or want these to happen to us. Most of us no matter how worn out and tired we are of life would still choose to live instead of die. We still do not know despite all the great scientific, theistic and philosophic theories and purported answers to the basic questions of why and how life and the universe exists, exactly why and how the universe and life exists to our complete satisfaction. This leaves open the possibility that just maybe there could be an answer out in outer space somewhere that will tell us whether immortality is for real when we leave this body. I was never given a choice whether I wanted to die (which I do not want to, ever) and as a result feel cheated that this choice was never on the table sort of speak as an option for me to choose from. It simply is a given that I will die sometime and this is not acceptable to me. Outer Space is so big that it could easily accommodate all the people that ever lived or died whether we colonize it by human technology or there is a super natural way to do it. I would gladly take the immortal cure simply because I want to exist forever.
