Hello ATS people

I suppose this is the part where I tell you too much about myself, and to demonstrate my interest in fringe subjects that are covered by this forum. I'm big into transhumanism, I'm one of those strange people who never wishes to cease to be. If I had an opportunity to insure my perpetual existence, I wouldn't even hesitate. It's my sick obbsession, I never want die. I consider my current perpetuation and arangement to be me. I am whatever #ing thing that makes me say I. I have plans to learn as much as I can, to maybe even experiment on my own physiology to increase my likelyhood of attaining immortality.

Some subjects I like to obsess over applicable to this forum are time travel, parallel universes, biohacking, and space travel.

My extreme sense of self preservation also extends to everyone. If I could end death for every sentient being I would do it. We've been through allot as a species amidst this volatile universe, and the death of any thinking mind is a tragedy. Perhaps it is better I have not this ability, as I imagine I would have allot of angry dissatisfied subjects. As I know many people accept the inevitable oblivion, but that concept remains alien to me. I mean with the number of people alive on the planet around 100,000 people die everyday! That's very disheartening if you ask me.

I yearn for space. As long as I remember I've wanted to live and travel through the sea of stars. I yearn for the stars, the numberless possibilities that are out there just sitting waiting to be discovered and explored. Except there is the whole speed of light, the monumentally extreme distance between us and all that stuff out there. Maybe it is possible to get from point A to B faster than a #ing photon can, but such methods aren't public knowledge yet. And if I find that that sort of knowledge has been withheld somehow, I'm going to be monumentally pissed.

Well there is a little introduction to me. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Welcome to ATS participate and enjoy...Question... What if when your body dies (like all those before you) and you are released into a new state of being where knowing, existing, and total freedom from pain and lack of understanding is the norm.. Throw in 72 virgins and anything else you can think is paradise...After death you would probably be slapping yourself and saying "All along I could have had a V-8 for there was nothing to fear but fear itself ! "

Of course if you die and are truly dead/kaput then you also have nothing to worry about because you are dead and all your worries died with you.. Hummm hahaha enjoy you stay

In that case there's a seat reserved for you at the table , you are indeed welcome.
Hope you enjoy your stay and the journey that awaits you here Grruelty.

If I could end death for every sentient being I would do it.

You would have to eliminate birth then, too.

No death without birth, death is another rebirth.

Wanna live forever? Learn how to behave towards others.

Not sure this is the place to learn that though. Here we learn how not to behave...

...welcome to the machine.

Fasten your seatbelt and remember, its just a ride.

Yeah there seems to be allot of political insanity here. I didn't necessarily intend to discuss politics here, but perhaps I might add a little of my Cyberpunk anarco-transhumanist type views to the mix.

any and all

I want to create a superluminal connection between micro organisms, and then slowly pass on brain function to the soup I'll plant in many different locations. Then I'll use that to true remote control an organic human body via quantum entanglement or even a synthetic one. If the body dies I'll make a new one. We are quickly approaching the atom barrier in micro processers. Given how much it would take to simulate a human mind on a binary computer. I don't want to become a statistical computation compressed and manipulated on a vast network that might likely be an attrocious experience. One that would slowly meld my identity and thoughts with the whole.

I'm not opposed to altering and expanding myself, I just don't want to meld into an expanse of conciousness. To me that is to be obliterated.

I'm not a fan of any juvenile paradise afterlife ideology. If I die and there is some form of me to exist on I'll be exstatic, but I'm not counting on it. My desire to live is like an overactive survival instinct. I understand if I die to oblivion, then there is nothing to be or think as I would simply not exist. But while I have the chance to potentially evade oblivion, I'll do everything I possibly can to.

I won't deny my head may or may not be broken. That my obsession for infinity is unhealthy, but I don't care. Given the chance and opportunity, I may become a hero or a villian to many.

When it comes to the death and birth of humans. A little more than twice as many births occur. Eliminating death would merely just increase the population growth rate by aproximatelly 33%

I thought they accomplished that with bug spray and US Aid?

Howdy I'm new too, but I have no interest in being a borg. To each his own I suppose.

Welcome to ATS.We never cease to be.A prospect that as a broken young person filled me with the utmost despair,but not any more.As you get older,you get stronger,and that means what made you despair before now means Opportunities.I honestly doubt i shall reincarnate into form again if i have a choice.But if i do incarnate somewhere again it will be on the condition that there are cats where im going.

Welcome to ATS! Really enjoyed your post...sounds you have very fascinating interests! Never really thought much about wanting to live forever, but unfortunately (even though I am a devout believer in Heaven) I do have a fear of dying for some reason. Not really sure why either. imo if we all lived forever, the planet would soon be overcrowded, so yes, the stars are where we need to be able to go to! Glad to have you here!

I can't think of a worse nightmare than never dying. Though sometimes I do have the feeling we are on rinse/repeat cycle...
