If you could live forever, would you? If not, how long would you want to live?

I figure if trees can live for hundreds of years and coral for thousands of years, it can't be that bad given the right set of circumstances

    Only if my mental faculties are suited to living that long without going senile or crazy and I get to be a hot anime girl with massive breasts.

      Yeah probably.
      But like I want to be able to get all the cool "post/transhuman" stuff like big anime breasts.

        It's the only thing that matters. Living forever as a big titty anime girl is significantly different from living forever in a shitty ass geriatric body

    Its literally a type of hell.

    Watching the trainwreck of humanity at a thousand frames a second while the world wont believe trains exist until after the crash, then blame you because they feel stupid for not noticing.

    Reminds me of the movie Death Becomes Her, or The Green Mile, the Twilight Zone episode "Long Live Walter Jameson". If you live for thousands or even hundreds of years everyone you know will eventually die. Everyone will grow old around you and you stay the same age. If I had great physical and mental health I would do it. Look how much the world has changed since 1924. Now imagine it in another 100 years from today. I want to witness all the frickery this shit society will spew.

      Depends on when exactly I'd stop "aging". Living forever as a shriveled up senile grandpa doesn't sound like a good time.
      Also I guess the first century or two would be incredibly rough on your mental health, once you outlive your first few generations of loved ones and friends.

      Wouldn't you just retire after 60-70 years and then live the rest of your life off government bucks?

        governments change all the time and inflation fricks everyone who's not growing their wealth actively

        if you're rich enough that your assets are accumulating, yeah

    How do you know you don't live forever? You don't know anything about death? It may just be a phase(a step).

    Depends on if I could just take a nap in a remote canyon and wake up a thousand years later. Working every day for eternity would be hell. Let me wander the Earth like a ghost.

    >forever
    No. Absolutely not. I'd go insane, the concept of eternity mortifies me in all variations.
    >much longer than you likely will now
    Yes. 60 good years of health if you take great care of yourself is fricking dogshit and anyone saying otherwise is an idiot. At least 300 years would be a solid lifespan.

      300 doesn't sound so bad to me either. That's about the lifespan of some trees. I figure it may be doable. If we take the aging process and stretch it out over three centuries, so basically the first century would be childhood to early adulthood, the second century would be maybe early adulthood to middle age, and the third century would be closer to elderly, I don't think it would be so bad.

    Sure, obviously you'd need the option to check our before heat death but might as well so long as your health doesn't go to shit.

    Absolutely not. Floating in empty space for eternity after everything is gone sounds worse than hell.

      slavery is a major issue for blacks, because only african countries still have slaves
      so it is a real issue for blacks, but it is caused by other blacks
      but you are right that crying about it in western countries which have long moved on is moronic, because if you you really cared about slaves you would try to help modern slaves

    some jellies go through a phase of aging regression, and are said to live a biologically eternal life
    some say the key to eternal youth is found in mental keys/focus and thought

    Would be interesting to have the ability to terminate your immortality. Like at what point would this be enough for you.

      it's never enough
      you realize you are the moment eternal
      and you will always be here
      you will never lose your thirst for life as long as you have it
      and that's a fact

      If you lived in a Utopia (all needs met, people aren't terrible, etc) I'd say there are an infinite number of problems to solve, an infinite amount of new stuff coming out, and (again, Utopia setting) an infinite amount of new people to meet.

      In other words, if you could live in Star Trek (TNG) and be eternally young/healthy I don't think you'd necessarily ever want to stop living.
      You might end up in a very different place, maybe a very different person, from where you started but I don't think you'd ever grow tired of living.

    I don't know. It might be fascinating, but also depressing.

    >seeing your loved ones/GFs/wives die over and over again
    >seeing humans derail into civilisation collapse on repeat
    >seeing the same mistakes, same bullshit
    >being discovered and treated as a pariah

    Unless you can shield yourself form these, you will have a hard time. But then hopefully you learn enough over the years to adapt easily. But then "forever" has even bigger problems, which you can not even fathom what it really means:

    >watching earth ecosystem to evolve into something very different
    >watching humanity transcend you in abilities
    >watching earth go extinct
    >seeing earth being destroyed by the sun
    >assuming you have ship of some sort, you will spend eternity in blackness
    >possibly see other systems most of it being dead and barren
    >and if you thought eternity before was a long time, wait for the heat death of the universe, for 10^106 years

    Question is, at which of these points would you want to turn off the lights? Because forever probably not something you want.

    What is one to think of this extreme recoil by some on the right. But I refuse to buy into this belief that dirt cheap age reversal for the masses that would let you choose how long you live is luciferian or satanic in nature, some overt expression of hedonism that runs against God. What God would think people shouldn't have this? This is about more life. Simple as. I just don't believe some of these people who say they will willingly choose to die. It makes me cry.

    There are many kinds of death.
    Crying is a gateway to one of them.
