While it might be tempting to say you want to live
"forever"...especially if you have no belief in God or an
afterlife...unless you were able to keep it stimulating, I don't
see how you could not become bored after a time. This of
course implies that you don't have to be working all this time,
which leads to the fact that you would have to have an
unlimited supply of cash.
So if we are going to live forever, that would have to mean
total immunity from disease or injury. We would have to be
'invulnerable' like Superman. This might make things more fun
right off the bat, as we could not only save money by not having
health insurance or doctor visits, but we could also travel in
the world freely without the danger of falling victim to thugs,
terrorists, or the effects of war.
This leads me to my belief that human cruelty on other humans
is one of the most shameful aspects of our world today. The earth
is such a beautiful place, and it would be so awesome to be able
to go anywhere in the world, and visit different cultures, and
experience different customs without worrying about the danger
from deviant and insane human beings.
You could spend a huge amount of time traveling, and I don't
know that forever would even be enough time to see it all.
"Forever" would probably mean as long as the earth is in
existence, which could reasonably be as long as the Sun is
stable...say, at least a few billion more years, or until humans
destroy the planet. Believing in God as I do, I would only be
willing to have a very long life span if I could spend the time
doing what I want to do, and have my family and friends stay
alive with me.
But in the end, I would hope that I could go to an even better
life when I eventually die. When you think about it, though, being
in heaven would be much the same thing, only better...because
now you have a whole infinite UNIVERSE to explore, in the
company of all your beloved friends and family. And what better
tour guide can there be but God?
Peace be with you.
