If you had the choice between living forever or dieing, what would you choose and why? What are your thoughts on immortality and mortality? If somehow scientists came up with a way to make us live forever, would you take that option or choose death? I thought I'd start this thread as I found it rather interesting after a small discussion in the 'not happy' thread and thought that maybe we could keep the discussion going in its own thread. Personally I don't want to live forever. If we could, what would the consequences be? We wouldn't be able to have more children, we would have to stop the ageing process as well. Would there be set a time frame in which they allow us to live for? 100-1000 years? Quite frankly, I want my children to grow up and age and want to age myself. I would rather age gracefully and know one day I am going to die than be stuck the same forever. I want to be a grandmother and great grandmother before I die, but not at the extent of living forever. I like the natural order of live and death (as painful and unfair the death part seems sometimes).
