I wouldn't want to live forever. Seems depressing. The only reason we do something with our lives is because we know that sooner or later, we can't anymore. Plus, I wouldn't want to see everyone just dying around me.
Once you're dead you're donzo. nothing more to see, just blackness unless you believe in a heaven or hell in which case you're stuck in the same scenario of eternal mundane exisistence. either way it's going to be permanent so given a choice between being able to still experience and see many many futures or float around without consciousness or spend it in oblivion for all of eternity I would choose the former hands down.
Well said.. straight to the point and thoughtful... i tip my hat off to you. ( I tip alot of people i guess)
