You may disagree with my outlook on these matters, but you should not assume that I am clueless, that I have not considered the possibilities
presented by the ability to witness the rest of time.
However, nothing in this universe is immune to entropy. All complex structures collapse over time, all of them. From the decay of atoms, to the
destruction of entire galaxies, by collision with others, star systems being absorbed and distended and consumed by black holes, entropy is the great
annihilator, and claims all things in the end.
Not even the gargantuan efforts of those who operate the LHC have been able to discover a route by which it can be staved off. All you will learn,
and all you will see, will boil down to that simple truth, and in your efforts to see the life of the universe in all its glory, you will have thrown
off all that makes a person truly human. Empathy, compassion, love.
All these things I have already considered, and inform my preference for a natural course of life, and a natural death. I wish to learn all I can
from life, and understand as much about the universe as I am able within my share of time. But I would not wish to eschew all that makes a man, a man,
in order to do so.
