Immortality

It was Susan Ertz who once said that “millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.” Suppose something came down from the sky and magically gave us immortality...what of it? We would surely be overjoyed at the prospect of such a thing...wouldn’t we?...if we were optimists we would think of all the great things that we would see in the future...the inventions, the ‘betterment’ of life...if we were not optimists, maybe we wouldn’t want to live forever...surely the life we know would be drastically different...the world would be destroyed perhaps...maybe we would be the soul survivor...would we want something like that?...and from a practical standpoint, what about you?...seeing your friends and loved ones grow old and die...again and again...would you want that?...you would just go on living day after day...what would be the point?...maybe it is death that gives life its meaning...without death, there might be no meaning...maybe all of us will have immortality...some doctors and scientists have theorized about the achievement of immortality regarding the human body... with some even suggesting that human immortality may not be all that far away...in fact, they claim it may be achievable in the first few decades of the 21st century.
