I'm not sure if I would want to live forever. There have been times in my life when I did not want to live even one more second.
But; as I have gotten older, things seem to come more easily for me. It is easier to go to work these days. I am able to make more money because of
experience and education, all of which take time. Nothing replaces experience. I think that many would (hopefully) become masters at thier
professions. I think we would advance faster as a civilization because we would be able to keep expanding our knowledge instead of taking it with us
I would think that maybe the privledge of living forever would need to be earned. Based on contributing to society in some positive way, or else, you
don't get to live forever.
The longer you live and work the more money you will make maybe even becoming rich.
The longer you live the more relationships you would have and more relatives that would result from those relationships.
The longer you live the more friends you would make...and the more enemies?
Here's a thought: I would not want to be able to bear children for the entire enternity, though. Just thought I would throw that in there.
