I haven't come to terms with it and wish more people would view it as being completely unnecessary. We will be able to pull this off someday and it can happen far sooner if we spend more money towards the proper goals.

The idea is staying young, by the way, not living forever old. I am looking into having my body(possibly just the head) frozen. Hopefully I will be a cyborg in a sense before that happens.

and yes I am completely serious

the thing is you have to imagine never getting to 80 and staying as you are right now. You prefer a blank nothingness to that? Why don't you off yourself right now? That's the entire point. This will happen whether you like it or not, the question is just how soon.

If you were really living by your own mantra, you wouldn't even be thinking about how you were going to live out your 60s. It doesn't make sense to plan out your life that far in advance, a lot is going to happen in the intervening years and you're going to be a different person then. See how you want to live out your 60s when you're in your 60s, see what gives you the most enjoyment then and run with it.

Life is a roller coaster ride.

And when you're on a roller coaster, do you lament "damn, this ride will be over in a few minutes" for the whole duration of the ride? Of course not, you'll ruin your experience.

At least that's my take on the situation.

I know it is coming, and I do not fear it, because I believe there is nothing on the other side of death to fear, he writes in a journal entry titled "Go Gently into That Good Night." I hope to be spared as much pain as possible on the approach path. I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state. What I am grateful for is the gift of intelligence, and for life, love, wonder, and laughter. You can't say it wasn't interesting. My lifetime's memories are what I have brought home from the trip. I will require them for eternity no more than that little souvenir of the Eiffel Tower I brought home from Paris.

...

I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn't always know this, and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.

You didn't exist for most of existence and you will be gone for even longer.

Exactly death isn't this warm feeling of nothingness, it's flat out nothing, no comprehension no changes, no feeling of anything.

There's nothing acceptable about it other than the idea that we have a choice, like I said this may happen within our lifetimes. If you don't feel comfortable about death, it's not that you're wrong, you're absolutely right to feel that way. Anyone who says otherwise has some religion or is lying to themselves because the idea is too much for them to comprehend.

Donate to http://www.sens.org/, freeze your body when you die. If you want to avoid death these are really the only steps you can take right now.

Here is something I've been pondering.

We "exist" as nothing for all of time. When compared to the universe, our life is like a infinitesimally small period of time. Those of you who know calculus may see where I'm going with this. We are like the "dx", or the infinitesimal slice in an integral. Thus, the only bounds to this infinitesimally small dx are the beginning and end of our life. It is using these bounds that allows us to sum all of the time of the universe. Thus, what we do during that time period of "dx" (lets change it to "dt") is ultimately irrelevant.

Now we come to what I want to say. Fate is real. Control is false. Life is certain because the next bound (death) is right in front of us. Thus, by my argument (valid or not), your notion of choice is irrelevant.

I feel like I would get Golfe's approval on this post

It is right now, but the point is that someday it won't be, and with the proper funding that day can be sooner than later. Fate is by the way. We need to sustain life and colonize the universe, and learn cooperation instead of blowing each other up.

Immortality seems to be a pretty unrealistic goal from what I have read on it so let us for the sake of this thread ignore it as a scientific innovation. I am not saying it won't ever happen, but ignoring it will make the discussion more interesting.

That said, crumbaker, what now? Your life is finite. What will you think when the doctor gives you 6 months to live? What will you think on your death bed? What will you say to your family?
