If the cure for mortality is found within your lifetime, would you go for it and become immortal?
I think in this way: we are matter. Sometime, the inorganic matter became organic, and we evolved to what we are today. So, this life is an experience. It is the atoms that compose me feeling what life is. We are not certain if there is life again, so, given that this might be a unique experience, there is no reason for me to dispose of the experience of life. Of course, cultural meanings may have a strong position on the human being's life. I'm sorry if that is not related to the topic.

Is it a disease? I mean, everything comes to an end. Trees, virus, bacteria, humans. It seems to be a part of a cycle, the death. I believe it is part of the universe, that we someday die to all of our organic matter become, once again, inorganic matter. The immortality is no more than a concept made by the human being. As equally, trying to find a "sense" on everything, and hardly accepting that "sense" is no more than a human concept.

How can a human being overcome selfishness, the idea that one is separate from the rest of humanity?
Nice point about the astronaut. Sometimes I think in how small we are, and how we need the others to get somewhere. When I remember that we are on a gigantic ball, floating on the cosmos ocean, without knowing why or when or where we came from, I begin to see myself as a part of the whole Universe. A state of the matter that experiences life, like all the atoms wanted to experience life and I become what I am today. So, when I think about this, I found it so much beautiful and awesome, and I can't think of myself as something else than a part. A part of the whole Universe, just as you and everybody else are! And I despise selfishness when thinking this way.

Is it part of human nature to have a hierarchy?
I tend to think that political power is influence, in the purest way of speaking. He who knows a lot of people, and is diplomatic with this people, is surely the one they will think first when asking for a favor. So it's the power of persuasion, maybe.

The Internet: Has it made us more or less social?
I agree with you. I can see this happening a lot in Brazil. Everybody considers the internet an awesome environment to learn and to understand new ideas, but we've lost depth. At least here, people see what they want to see about some subject, without getting any further in how that works or these kinds of things. They understand the concepts, but they do not understand how it was developed to get there. They cannot explain things such as the previous generation could. And this happens with every subject you can imagine. There is the people who invest their times on submerging themselves into a whole new culture, just to be accepted by who likes it. Just to become part of a social identity. In other words, people need acceptance. It always happened. The way we dress, the tendences we follow, the kitten culture and stuff. I do not know if it is prejudicial, but I can see that most of Facebook users are really on a quest for attention. And I think this is kind of sad. If you stop to think, there isn't such thing as attention on the internet, I mean, there is the "like" you give to a certain person, but that does not really mean anything. When a person is talking to you on the Facebook chat, she is also doing a bunch of other things. Afterall, nobody gets the attention they want.
