Subject: My thoughts on immortality. . .
In reply to: Comicality 's message, "Dark Qustion For 7/4" on Sat July 04, 2009 08:05:37

I think many things would change for us, if we became immortal. That our lives would have the same meaning, I think would probably change; maybe not a lot, maybe only a little, or maybe completely, depending on the person themselves.

But I don't believe that it would cloud our appreciation for life; I think that it would simply be another way of seeing life. It would be a different point of view, and that in itself is something cherishable. But we would have to make it be so, just like we have to make it so as mortals. Nothing is cherishable if we don't make it so, right? I suppose it's something subjective to each one of us.

But then, what if in one thousand years you discover what life really means to you. . . and you are certain beyond doubt you have found the answer. Even if the answer fits only you. And what if in another thousand years you discover something else. . . and you realize for one thousand years you have been wrong. . . and you decide to wait another thousand years because this second time might be wrong also! I can just picture someone going insane from the idea of it. . .
