Stevan S. Posted over 1 year ago If the cure for mortality is found within your lifetime, would you go for it and become immortal? Gerald, Like the intro argumentation, well rounded, really pleasant stuff to read. How would being immortal affect an individual's psyche? NOT being confounded by the frames of time would, perhaps, wither one's will to accomplish life-long goals. It might be more important to get the timings right than to forever be aware that "things can wait". I guess an immortal would have to have some Highlander-like goals to justify himself, to himself. Ending an immortal lifespan would always have to be horribly unnatural and sad thing, since I disagree with quote OP "Dying at age 80 is no more a "natural" death than being eaten alive by a bear or killed by malaria. In fact, "old age" is probably the most unnatural cause of death, statistically." /quote. Humane medical sciences would back me up here. Though, I admit, it would be pretty fascinating to find out how would the "injection" work, scientifically.
