so what do humans average?
75 or so i would think. too lazy to look. women living longer then men but lets call it 75

thats not enough time to do #.

i have heard people say they would like to live forever.
i will pass on that. who says it is all going to be great?

i keep thinking about 300 years. 300 years seems like a good amount of time to see some cool places.
can do some traveling
could master many things. that would be nice

300 years to have with your spouse and kids. that would be great

the flip to all the good # we think about is the 300 year grind we would have.
most of us are not well off. we have to work it.
thats a lot of work. paying bills. just dealing with # and stress.


so what do you think?

no utopia land where youre just crushing all the time getting fanned while eating grapes and # like that.
life pretty much how you have now. just 200 more years of it.

100. That's a hell of a lot of life over a century.

85 years if you are still healthy.

For me it's about the century mark, given the current healthcare and health knowledge that we have. I would love to go out like my grandfather did at age 90...rocking in his chair, having accomplished all his life's goals.

Personally my bucket list is huge and I feel like if I don't take care of it, I'll have a huge impetus to stay alive. So I'm in no rush to accomplish everything. 100 years is fine.

Now if I could have the body of a 35-40 year old forever, I'm happy with that for 300+ years...

When I can't make it to the bathroom on my own, I will consider my life to be on a speedy downward spiral.

It's not incentive people need, it's time where they aren't exhausted from work and don't need to be worried about getting back to it before they've finally gotten to relax. It takes people time to wind down and really let themselves live.

People need jobs to be more spaced out. Everyone needs one MANDATORY paid seasonal vacation per year. As in, like when we went to school and had summer off. Give people time to be people and explore who they are. We work too much and those who don't work are too busy being poor to actually enjoy and make the most of not working.

Which political party, which scientist should we ask? Be careful what you wish for. These kinds of questions just might find you fighting to keep your parents alive due to giving too much power to someone who might not only want your parents dead due to their age but you too?"

For those who bark constantly about Democracy,(mob rules) what if the MOB decides once people reach the age of 50 they should die to protect resources so that other may live????

Being poor is liberating to those who accept it rather than trying to keep up with Joneses.

I have threatened to live until about 100 and I want to go out in style, in bed with a bottle of champagne an a couple of young Nymphomaniacs.

Give an old guy his dreams.

When I was in my mid twenties, I always used to say I wanted to go out at 33. You know, the same age Jesus was when he went out... My own little egotistical superiority complex maybe?

But, at 34 reality kicks in that their will be no easy way out, I gotta do my time like a 25 to life sentence... no matter how boring and exhausting it gets.

Thats how I see life, like jail, you just gotta do your time...

I call it the Soprano effect!

On season 1 episode 12 of the Sopranos, Tony's down and out, completely debilitated with depression, obviously just wishing he was dead. But then out of the blue those black dudes try to take him out.., In that minute, that very second, where the reality of the end hits home, he's intincts kick in and he fights with every bit of energy he has left to just stay alive...

Everyone just desires what they don't have, or stands to lose, right?

I would star you a million times for this if I could.

When humans' basic needs are met and when they are given free time, almost all humans, universally, use that time to create. Whether it be through expressive means, intellectual, artistic, material, whatever.

Given the room to breathe and to flourish we are, at heart, a playful and beautiful species.
The artificial world we have constructed around ourselves stifles this playfulness and creativity. We no longer value creativity, we only measure it's worth in productivity.

Creativity and expression is now simply another commodity.

In reality, it is the essence of our nature and we create and play simply for the joy of doing it.

Give us all the time and space to grow and breathe and we will see a remarkable transformation in our world.

Weirdly, I also agree with this.

The power is within us all, though some need a helping hand. A wee shove in the right direction
