    Depends.

    Am I going to live those hundreds of years as an elderly? Then no thanks.

    That could be really amazing! Talk about getting a chance to experience so much of what life has to offer. all the different places you could live, people you could love, activities you could try, losses you would deal with, changes you could witness.

    Yeah, I would.


    On the condition that I'm the only one that lives for a 1,000 years.

    I would do it, but I would also prefer that I am not elderly for most of that time.

    Yes. I'd like if my species reached sexual maturity at the same rate as humans, but have adulthood extended so that I spend the bulk of the 1000 years with the health and body of a 25-year-old. I'd like the last 50 years to age like a human.

    if it truly came to be, i suppose the concept of what is and looks young and old would be redefined.
    with gay men on forums drooling over double chins and sagging nipples.

    I read last year about some experience in Japan where they managed to stop aging processes in rats. The interesting consequence was the rats stopped reproducing.
    So a hypothesis was made that life makes us go old and die to ensure we reproduce.
    Therefore , why AREN'T GAY MEN YOUNG FOREVER ???????? >:-

    Nope, the world would probably run out of resources before I reach 1,000

    Yes. Since I was young I've always been afraid of death and what that means, so would love to extend this life for a while longer.

    My first reaction is to say "hell yes." But remembering what it was like when I was going thru that ungodly medically-induced depression during my cancer therapy, I realize that I could be in a condition where I wouldnt want to be alive because I couldnt experience pleasure. I quit my therapy and told them just let me die cuz I couldnt take it anymore and that was only after 6 months of not being able to suck any pleasure out of life. If I were going to be like that for another 942 year, then no, I wouldnt want to live to be 1000. But otherwise, I see no advantage to being dead.

    If I could stay moderately young and attractive, the long term investment possibilities would be tempting.icon_lol.gif

    I subscribe to some "singularity" beliefs. http://singularity.com/

    Actually, I find the notion of downloading consciousness into a machine to be extremely appealing.

    There is a lot I want to try and get good at. If I could reinvent myself every 50 years or so, I might enjoy it, especially the chance to see how things develop. If I'm stuck with what I have now...while life is good at the moment, I know I would get tired of it after 1000 years!
