I don't think so. Unless we won't be able to reproduce until we're 600 years old, the earth will be a horrible place to live without death, and leaving space/resources for others who are born after us.
Not to mention, when animal rights activists will jump in and say, "why don't all living things have the right to longevity, if we have the technology?"
well, as long as my life is happy i would.
Yes, I definitely would... you would have time to experience so many things and learn so many things i would have time to do all the things I want to do in this life and I could gain so much wisdom.
for sure! life is fantastic! i would live longer than that if possible! think of all the knowledge, the love , the sex you could have in such a life; the things you could achieve...MAN that would be something!
It's been mentioned already but the world population at least in industrialized countries would explode. I believe countries like the United States would have institute a strict immigration policy, if it's bad now with illegal immigration can you imagine if people started living longer, what our borders would become.<br />
Now if it was me and a select few others that had the 1000 year old gene it probably be kinda cool to celebrate new centuries. Could you imagine the lecture tour for these Granturians (would that be a word to describe 1000 year olds). In the year 2569, a person could be guest speaker to talk about what they were doing when Apollo 11 landed on the moon 500 years earlier. Could be around for the United States Tricentennial, I remember all the hoopla involving the Bicentennial in 1976. <br />
I guess as long as I was healthy where I would be able to participate in physical activities and be able to support myself financially to say I'm 975 years old, heck why not live to be 1000.
Yep sure would.
Absolutely. Live long enough to be a problem for your childre... your children's children...
that is a lie because there is no way to stop the degeneration of cells because if they were even close to a breakthrough in that area, they would have cured many fatal diseases by now or at least cured something that also causes death or brain death which is caused by the degeneration of cells.
if i didn,t have to worry about a place to live and food and money then yes i would but being poor no thank you.
Yes but only if I could stay like 22 years old. I would want to live that long and be old
Wow, you hit a home run with this question. My answer is the same as many of the others.<br />
1: if I could be relatively youthfull for a good portion of it.<br />
2: quality of life would have to be there<br />
The short version: Hell yes!
well, how should i say this... YEAH!!!
If I had a lot of money to live on every year, why not.
For sure. There is just so much to do and accomplish.
no,not in this world
Mm. Probably not. Unless they come up with a cure for poverty, tiredness, and boredom. I don't know...I might not mind living to 200 or so, if quality of life were there and my loved ones could live a long time too. It would be BAD to be the only person to be that longlived. <br />
Shoot....i'm relatively healthy, only 43, and sometimes I'm already tired of living. But, in all fairness, maybe that's just things breaking down already.
I think it would be cool if I could develop a lifelong habit of positive thinking! As it is, the longer I live and the more I get to know of people, the more pessimistic and jaded I get. By the time I hit 200, whoa Nelly! LOL
And the download'll probably be full of viruses created by matrix people! Ack! :)
I don;t think I would. Unless I knew the world was going to change for the better over that time.
I do not want to live forever.
would I want to see 1000 years of other ppl's behavior.... Would I want to live that long and be mostly made of plastic, metal and rubber? Never mind that. I agree with LeelaLafont. We're over-crowded as it is. The planet's resources only take us so far before they are all gone.
then again ppl's instinct is to live on... so who knows
