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.

I would take the injection as I would love to live forever doing what I love to do now. It does not matter to me whether I would ever experience boredom or not as the alternative, not existing forever, is not a choice I want. I would continue working and learning as I do now as well as helping better my fellow eternal beings as I do now. Eternity would not make me lazy as I am the type that no matter what situation I am in now, I try to find something productive to do anyway even if this is just reading a technical book on my computer. One proof that most people favor living as opposed to death, is the filled hospital and doctors offices on a daily basis. If death was so welcome and needed why are most sick people looking to doctors to try and save themselves? Most of us would be very happy living forever.

Can God be defined?
I was raised Catholic, then became Christian and now I feel I am simply a truth seeker. I feel a creator could exist but would be some form of energy that we simply do not understand. So at this point "God" would be undefined. We simply do not understand enough about the universe to truly define a God or God's. No one has ever traveled out into the far reaches of space to see for themselves what exists out there and why it is there. I appreciate the atheists and theists views, but really we have no absolute truth as of yet what it all means and why. We have logic, assumptions, science, theories, etc, but still it leaves one wondering what is really out there and why? Personally I feel God would have to be defined as an energy source of immense power. However this is just my speculation.

Is capitalism sustainable?
The Venus Project (Google it) shows an idea of what society could be like without capitalism. Eventually humanity will realize for its own sake that something like the Venus project will be needed if we are to survive as a race. Yes capitalism is fully entrenched at this moment especially in the western world, but with much effort it could be changed if humanity had enough desire to do so. We forget nothing on this earth is lasting or etched in stone as the be all system or thing. However humans resist change and with limited time facing so many people just trying to survive, change would be very hard at this point. Still, The Venus project gives us all a glimpse of what is so far the closest vision so far that seems workable for all.
