    I chose be immortal, but most people who chose it don't realize that being immortal is not a gift, it's a curse. The law of large numbers puts the probability of EVERYTHING to 100% if you are immortal.

      But since immortality is fictional, probability doesn't exist. In this case, you would only die if you were killed.

      you wouldn't die though, so it wouldn't matter, also if you live long enough humans would develop ways to cure cancer etc.. so being immortal is the best choice

      Sorry Jonneh, infinite sets don't necessarily contain all possible values... set of all even numbers doesn't contain every number, for example, but is still infinite. That said, you'll certainly end up going insane after the Sun dies and you're left floating in space, but until then you can do some really great things. Maybe even find away around the whole 'Sun dying' thing...

      The probability of dying 100% x 0% due to immortality = 0%. But the law states otherwise... Hmm...

    Although I would have to deal with the pain of watching my friends, family, lover, children and any future generations from my seed die, I choose immortality. Every few decades I'd have to swap my identity and change homes. If I was the last human living, floating around space after Earth was destroyed(most likely a gamma burst), I'd probably regret my choice a slight bit, but not if an alien race found me. I'd be able to tell the alien race of the event's in earth and keep humans living in history.

      With the rate technology is advancing and the time we have we probably will be able to go to a different galexy by then so I wouldn't really worry about that personally I choose this option because I'm to afraid of death

      Do you think that ist good to be immortal, to see everything you love suffer away into death and pain, untill only you are left. Do you think its good to see the univerze slowely die and crummble, see cities be destroyed and countries make wars that destroy thousands of lives, see people destroy the wonders of nature and as last see the end of time and then after the end of time you will be still there forever and ever and ever.

      Yes that would be nice... until everything in the universe is dead. the math is you would spend (WAY less than) 0.000001% of your life know anything else, and the rest of your life floating in space alone... waiting for the universe to re-create itself (if it ever does) plus death is a portal to a new world

    Who would want to live forever? Think about it. You have to watch everyone around you die. You can't leave. You watch your lover die. Your children. Your parents. Your friends. You continue watching the Earth and humanity destroy itself until there is nothing left but ashes. And then you're alone. And you still have years and years to go.

      I don't like most humans, and also think about it, you have infinite time to get over the deaths of the people you care about, I'm the youngest so I will have to see them all die anyway, also there are very few people I care about so it wouldn't be that bad.

      Years and years to go? You don't anything "to go". You will never cease to live. There is one permanent condition which cannot stop. Think of the greatest amount of time you can possibly come up with. Even after that has passed, nothing has changed and you are no nearer to anything.

      Eh, no... The option here was to die right now so you do in fact not ave years and years to go. But otherwise your point is valid. I would however find it interesting enough to explore my perception of time as the years pass by. Surely staying alive and having to get to know new people every 50 years isn't worse than dying right now. As long as I can avoid misery I should be fine.

      Being immortal only means that you don't die of old age, what you're thinking of is invincibility. You could still die of accidents, murdering, diseases, etc. but you would not be able to die of old age.

      But this is only one corner in one country in one continent in one planet that's a corner of a galaxy that is a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond. And there is so much, SO MUCH, to see. That's right. Our lives would never remain the same. They can't.

    Living forever would suck. You exist and eventually hate life, but cannot just die! Plus, you have no clue in what state your body is in. If you get only 2 major injuries in your life, multiply that by infinity. Plus, humans will change and adapt, you would eventually be an oddity and a freak.

    Sure with immortality you can do whatever you want,you can go see the world, find the love of your life, accomplish your life's dream. But what happens when 50 years pass? Or 100? Or 1,000? The world will just keep on going and you'll struggle to advance with civilization, current events will overwhelm you and changes to the world will be sudden. You are literally out of place. It would be terrible, that and everyone you know would die right before your eyes.

    just because you are immortal, doesn't mean you can't feel pain. After millions of years when the sun explodes and everyone else dies, you will be alone floating through space not being able to escape the pain or loneliness.
