So the who-who’s of the business world are apparently investing in the invention of stuff that can get you to be immortal.
I am not a biologist, so I am not really knowing or understanding all the details, but that raises a lot of my scepticism. (These days, everything does. So, not sure if that says much.) I mean, biology doesn’t work that way, does it? People at Google’s financial department can’t be that stupid, or having so much capital at their disposal that they shooting blind at this point could they? (If they do, can I have some too? I keep it a secret. Trust me.)
That is a totally different thing than what I want to talk about today, but let’s pin it up for future reference as stuff I want to take a swing at. Facebook too is investing, so, eye on them as well.
What I want to talk about today is the big ‘I’ of immortality. Something that almost every person who is not depressed, suicidal, or suffering insomnia, sleep paralysis, anxiety disorder, etc. wants. Unless you are like me and just want to see the world burn. In which case, welcome to the family.*wink*
Immortality, to me, sounds like a very annoying and useless thing. I thought that when I first read about vampires and my view has not changed since. What are you going to do the entire time?
Brains take in only so much information, so it definitely can’t be to pursue knowledge. Everything starts to look the same at the some point, so travelling is like a blur. (Trust me, I know.) Finding meaning of life is more pointless than watching ants go in and out of their colony’s nest the entire year. Find God? Like God would care about something as insignificant as the most arrogant parasite on planet Earth. We are probably on his list of ‘things not to repeat at all costs’.
But let’s say that, people who don’t even know what to watch on Netflix to spend quarantine without going crazy actually find a reason to live forever. This planet is going to be inhabitable after 30 years.
So unless you are Elon Musk (with the fleet of spaceships carrying endless supplies of imperishable food or eco-friendly with a functioning automatic cryogenic chamber) you are not going to Alpha Centauri star system, 4.37 light years away from earth.
You can, of course, stay on this planet, but neither Fresh Water Wars I or World War III will be pretty. Just saying. Probably the entire Earth would be blasted off in WWIII, in which case, I hope it comes before FWWI. People in the USA have to just re-elect Trump for that.
Petr Skrabnek was correct in saying, “Life is universally fatal sexually transmitted disease.”
