RE: We disagree on masks and vaccine passports because our immortality tickets look different.
Thank you sir for delivering this article. I found it out thanks to @tarazkp reblog. I have very similar thoughts about the current ongoings in the world but always struggle to laid them out in a neat and concise way. You did a great job here and surely inspiring for me.
Living forever, among people who hate you.
That's it. Most of the people dream about living forever, but I think that's coming only from their fear of death. I, on the other hand, approach the life differently and always try to seek for a purpose. When I ask myself: should I do this, or that, devote myself to this or that, I always end up asking myself what is the final purpose. And when I think to myself what would be the purpose to live forever... I see none. Life only makes sense when it has its limits, its boundaries which cannot be crossed. This lets us find life's meaning, or at the very least construct it.
We are beings that are bound by time. If you, theoretically, are able to live forever, you're no longer bound by time. The time stops existing in a sense, because it no longer plays any role. Then what do you do? You just keep on existing in a non-time space, doing all the same things on and on, and on, and on...
Quickly you'll start longing for a world where the time is still a thing, where you'll finally pass away, so being born and living a live actually makes a difference. Who know, maybe, once the technology allows for it, you'll create for yourself a simulation of a world, where you can actually die? And we und up in the same place.
And the wheel just keeps on turning... ;)
All the best!
