It is human nature to try survive as much as possible: as it is with other creatures however there is no point on living forever

Why would you live forever? You cant be playing chess for billions of years

We can play chess for billions of years, and there are a myriad of other interesting things to do, to learn, to see, to love

If you are scared, then seek more knowledge, different knowledge. Don't just accept what you think you know to be the way things are.

You call that knowledge?! Another strong sniff of the woo coming from you I'm afraid Richard.

No way man - it'd get boring. Eternity would be unbearable; regardless of the conditions IMO

and it's only boring, boring is perfectly bearable

boring is merely a measure of our creativity and imagination

Ever been in a holding cell? Sensory deprivation there....where nothing tickles you....once one becomes totally desensitised to all sensory input through over-exposure it would be very much like being in a holding cell....then again we're talking about eternity here; so it would be even worse than a holding cell.

And once you've imagined everything? Eternity :shock:

It’s very confusing, I wouldn’t want to die and just never be able to do anything ever again, but I also wouldn’t want to live eternally, because then after a long time, no matter what would happen, you’d have experienced everything and done everything and everything would be exactly the same, and even worse than death, so I guess reincarnation would be my heaven.
