Immortality

How would you live if you knew you would live 400 years or even forever? Would your mindset change from what it is now?

Interesting article on the subject: http://www.surrenderworks.com/librar.../immortal.html

Don't make any non-immortal friends, they'll die long before you do.

Really interesting, the belief work in ageing process, could have their appliance but lack in the explanation of how its model "subconsciouss" works upon changing the cells that really are programmed to die and the DNA to ageing.

Anyways been physical immortal don't protect you from harm, so it will be fact you will die, but not ageing but by an accident.
Keep this in mind the long you live with your same style of living, routine, expose to the city or open field, the most probabilities you will die by an accident by chance alteration in the "normal" enviorment you use to be on.

An interesting prediction I've seen is that due to the rate of advancing medical science, my generation has the possibility of living around 200 years.

I would be a more patient person and would not be worried of time constraints.

The thought of physical immortality has me considering that hobbies and art might consume more of my time. And thinking on that, I've decided to live like I am immortal and begin devoting much more time to the arts starting now.

You must have a dream, a vision, for it to happen. You must call it by name. If there is no name to it or a description, its not there. It’s nonexistent. So this one thing you always have to do. You have to see it, visualize it, call it, name it, make it happen.

Not just wish for it.

Oh no. Make it happen.
Pretty accurate. In my opinion. Although it does strike me as addressing 2 slightly different issues - rejuvenation (staying young) and immortality (living forever).

Using DMILS to play with your own telomares might just do the first. Remote Invluencing yourSelf... seems pretty ethical. Did post about a seminar about that a while back...

I don't believe in "death" as most perceive it. However, if I do cease to exist at some point, I will be very angry for not making better use of my time. That being said, I'd probably spend much more time hacking on my computer and composing music, as well as using psionics to assure my immortality.

I'm glad that I'm a mere mortal. Wouldn't want to live forever... Perhaps I will as I am Christian. I believe in afterlife in Heaven... and don't want to think about the other place....

I would continue living the same way and my mindset would not change.
