nightspore - do you think anyone would like to live forever? personally i can't think of anything more depressing than that.

Aaah. Ok. Well, yes, I would. Everyone always lives in the now, and if you asked one of the people who say they wouldn't like to live forever, "OK, would you like to die now, they would reply with alarm "of course not!". I think people are scared of large numbers: the idea of, for example, a trillion of anything terrifies them. But those people live through a trillion picoseconds every second, so what's the problem? I find the idea of infinity exhilarating.
