If you had the hypothetical opportunity to live 1000 years without aging, would you accept it? why or why not?

  1. Yeah, I think I would. It avoids the curse of living forever, seeing all of humanity die off, and living on a barren world for millions of years as the sun envelops the Earth to burn you for millions of years too before you float lifelessly in the void…tormented to never die.

    But seeing 1000 years of human history, that’s cool, I’d be down for that despite knowing I’d see my loved ones die.

  2. Absolutely. I want to see new technology, developments. Want to see and experience things. Do things. Anything. Anything is better than nothing. Death is nothing. I’ll always choose any length of something over eternal nothingness.

  3. No, I’m having trouble keeping up with new technology and I’m only 26! I can’t imagine how out of depth I’d feel after 100 years, let alone 1000. That and I’d keep having to watch loved ones die.

  4. I assume that it’d be like pausing the body so you wouldn’t get any new diseases or whatever, so yes. I’d like to see where humanity goes/does. I don’t have to worry about living forever and have a nice time stamp of when I’ll end, and since I know around how long I’ll live then I’d be able to plan accordingly and not have to worry about possible health issues in the future.

  5. Fuck yea I would.

    Get time to travel and experience time in all the countries, get to see what future tech holds, (think 100 years ago a computer or internet or TV was fantasy), see what countries die and others form, see whos goverment falls….

  6. Probably not. I like the cycle the way it is. Also, I already feel nostalgic about the early 2000’s. It would feel really lonely to have nobody to relate to.

  7. Yeah. If it just stops aging then I could always still off myself if I get sick of being alive. Though I wouldn’t look forward to seeing the changes to our climate during that time.

  8. Yes. There is so much I would like to see, to experience, and so much that I will miss. Our existence is so fleeting, even a thousand years is nothing. On a cosmic scale, humanity and all we accomplish will be forgotten in a blink of an eye. I’d like to see as much of that blink as possible.

  9. Depends if I’m stuck living the same life I have now, or if the longevity comes with other perks, like money, or invisibility, or superhuman strength. If there is none of that, then I’d just be going through the same bullshit I am now, but for a lot longer. Forget that.
