If freedom scares you, choice is a bad thing

If freedom is something you welcome, choice is a good thing.

I believe I will live forever... as me. There is no other way I can live forever, becoming someone else is the same as dying.

Hi Manored!

Good point! I agree. We can only perceive "ourselves" whilst we are "ourselves". But what if all of us are a sole universal manifestation of "Ourself". in all given locations?

Kind regards.

I would have to live forever in order to know if I want to live forever.
Since I can´t, I also can´t tell...can I ?

Would we as humans want to live forever? Even if we made the world perfect? Even if we got to the state of life being one giant orgasm of joy and love.

Personally I dont think so.

This would get boreing. And we would create games like this. Like life. With not quite perfectness. But a playing feild for beauty. And we would need death to kill our ego and start again. This way we will never get bored. This way there would be a reason for something to exist rather than nothing existing atall.

Are there any philosophers that have a similar view to this? basicly Buddhism but the goal not being to transition the ego but it having a purpose. Limiting us so we don't get bored. And always see beauty.


to live forever would be assume , think of how much you could learn , experience , you could travel the Universe

as long as I could keep my sanity , and had others that could and would in my ship , I'm in !!!!

I would like to live until I tired of life, not one minute more nor one minute less. I certainly would no want to exist after EVERYTHING else ceased to exist. In fact I think the actual "me" IS everything: Tat tvam asi .

@JLNobody,
Well JLN, we've been wondering about you too. I just happened to bumble into the philosophy forum and saw your post. Somehow, you seem to have taken the road less traveled.

Maybe try "forums" instead of "groups".

@glasstrees,
People always say, that everyone is here for a reason. If I could live pain free, I would sure like to spend forever meeting EVERYONE. I'd have a lot of questions. Other than that, give me a boat and a fishing pole, and my kids, and I would be happier than a pig in the mud, forever.
