If you were offered immortality with youth, would you take it?



  • We might think we've had enough of this dumb world with all it's stupid problems. But if you were given a choice, would you rather age and die, or would you stay young for a looong time (any time period you want) and work on some master plan you may be having.
    What you can keep in mind:
    -You'll have lived a long time and will have lots of experience and wisdom.
    -You can amass wealth in abundance.

    Some(like me) may think like this: they might want to live on and try to make this world a better place with all the resources we can have in all this time.

    Others may have some shady reasons to want to live long.

    So yeah, would you take immortality with youth, and why?



  • @ChaosKing said in If you were offered immortality with youth, would you take it?:

    @Kana Who will not take immortality with youth? I definitely would!
    I wanna know, know everything. It will give me enough time to study bout the universe and know new and cool stuff. I will be able to see every advancement in tech!
    Live will be so much amazing!

    That's the fun part.
    You'll also see loads of misery. Your loved ones will die and as time passes, with all the wars and hate this world isn't exactly going to be the best place to live on 😛

    Imagine for a moment that you were human? 😂

    @Kana It fully depends on if the one I care about will have that same chance to be young forever too, if not then Ill pass and age and die with them

    If they could be with you, would you take it then?
    And how would you spend the time?



  • @Kana

    You are on the roll lately with this topics, nice choice of problematics!
    It really depends tho... Would I be the only one living like that? Or others like me would exist?

    Can you imagine getting attached to someone, see them age, get sick, get older and die? Like live with them, by their side, see them wither with time while they see you young, fit and energetic? Must be rather painful if you ask me. Would that be te price of immortality or a lonely life devoted to "humanity" more then yourself?
    If there was a community, even if small, I think I could find ppl to share my life with that had the same "powers" as me, if I was alone, then I rather be "human"!

    @ChaosKing dude, you wouldn't really want to know e v e r y t h i n g. Trust me, it's not worth it at all..... Plus lemme tell y'all something: If you don't find any reason to live, you're already dead~ So if you really wanna live as an immortal, you should have an immortal reason to live as well (which means the reason would, I mean should not die as well). Immortality may be a boon or a curse, solely depending on your thoughts.

    Peace! :))



  • @Kana “immortality,” umm.. somehow I just know I'm gonna have the feeling that I’d discover it’s not the sort of immortality I’d want. (Perhaps I’ve watched too many Marvel and AI movies)
    What if there’s a mass extinction event.. am I gonna be alone forever? I certainly don’t want to fall into this trap of being a million physical years old xD



  • @pe7erpark3r said in If you were offered immortality with youth, would you take it?:

    As I wrote it would be tempting, but if I am completely honest, it would be wrong. I don't know wether I could resist the temptation, but I sure believe I should. The reason for that is the following:

    For everything we do, we should look to the past. Think of the people that have had the greatest influence and have done the greatest good. Names like Ghandi come to mind, or Mother Theresa. Did they have more time than moste of us? Did they have money, good looks, or youth?

    And yet they let the most meaningful lives you can imagine. Would I settle for a less meaningful youthful and long (but not eternal) life? Maybe. But I shouldn't. None of us should. We all should choose the most meaningful life we can think of (and change our idea about whats meaningful as we progress).

    It's up to us to make our life meaningful. Don't think that the standards previously set can not be overcome. We are capable of so much good, with or without a long life, or wealth, or youth.
    But do you care enough to follow that path to good, that is the question.

    And if we talk about the most influential person who ever lived on the planet: he only lived for about 33 years. Yes, no matter if you like it or not, Jesus has influenced more people than anybody else who ever lived. I'm just talking facts and numbers, nothing else. In the end he sacrificed his life for those he loved (that's what he believed so much is for sure). He did the most meaningful thing imaginable, something a true mother and a true father would always do for their children. Even if he hadn't influenced so many people, his sacrifice would have not been any less meaningful.

    Anyways what I am trying to say is: Real love is not a thing you feel or believe in, real love is something you do and that costs you, maybe even your life. And if you cannot give your life anymore – cause you are immortal – you have already lost the most precious thing you could ever give to somebody.

    Tbh i disagree with you here. Speaking relevant to the modern world, we don't need to give our lives to prove our love.
    What would work for the betterment of this world is a smart brain with a good heart, and not a life sacrificed.
    What we pay with here, is hardwork and dedication. If not, you're doomed to eternal misery in a wasteful long life if you did choose immortality.

    well, in that case, i would take it, cuz, being young enough, it's really fine i think



  • @Kana Good question Ms K.
    After the answer I gave on your other topic , I have been starting to think that maybe I am immortal . 😂
    But , no no .... for me a short well lived existance is prefrable to me.
    I feel that is this life were to go on and on , regardless of the wealth or the wisdom, it would become boring and shallow.

    Becoming immortal means your death would be meaningless, Anyway @Kana~

    You'll have lived a long time and will have lots of experience and wisdom.

    which implies,

    You can amass wealth in abundance.

    so that

    live on and try to make this world a better place with all the resources we can have in all this time.

    Is this really worth the (infinite) time?

    Leave alone immortality, take 300 years; do you really think our species would've achieved world peace by then?

    Peace! :))



  • @Kakashi said in If you were offered immortality with youth, would you take it?:

    We wouldn't die. Unless we chose to.

    Anyway @Kana~

    You'll have lived a long time and will have lots of experience and wisdom.

    so that

    live on and try to make this world a better place with all the resources we can have in all this time.

    Is that your action plan or are you telling me mine?

    Is this really worth the (infinite) time?

    Yes I like the feeling when i set something right, however small 🙂

    Leave alone immortality, take 300 years; do you really think our species would've achieved world peace by then?

    I don't believe it's impossible. I hadn't thought of world peace. Just want to make right what i can. And with all that time, who knows what we may achieve?



  • @ChaosKing said in If you were offered immortality with youth, would you take it?:

    @Kana I don't care! I'll be prayed like a god, people will worship me. I'll have the best brain anyone could possibly have.

    You sure they wouldn't try to disect you, torture you, keep you locked away in some cage because they want to figure out your secret?



  • If I was immortal, then I would've procrastinated to eternity. so no Immortality for me



  • @JessicaGrant

    that is stupid , if you were immortal you would eventually go crazy and try to die in every single way but it wouldn't succeed , leading to infinite suffering

    We can die when we choose to. Immortality doesn't have to be a sad existence. We can make our life better.



  • @Rendezvous

    Yea ofc lol, what stupid person wouldn’t?

    Read below to know if you wish. The reasons definitely aren't stupid for declining the offer. You may notice something you did not think of before answering.

    P.S. now my Mr. Grinch tag makes sense 😂



  • @pe7erpark3r

    You are right, you don't have to necessarily give your life to love, as long as what you give costs you.

    If it does not cost you, then it might be betterment for the world, but can it really be called love? And if you are forced to decide, and you would decide to not give your life, how great is your love...

    Why does it sound like you mean love cannot be without sacrifice. That's sentimental talk imo.
    How i see it: you care; you work for betterment. We don't need big sacrifices here do we?

    And let me ask you this: what has more worth: A mother who spends her youthful years with her child, or an immortal being who does the same. The mother's youth won't return. Her time will have been a present to her child. The immortal might not get the same time/moments back, but there is always more.

    I think it's joyful that the mother can stay with her child forever if they both wish for that.

    I think immortality definitely makes life less meaningful.

    Depends on what we choose to make of our time. It has infinite potential for growth and also for detriment.
