Nothing evolved to immortality so far.

Species adapt to their surrounding but it seems like nothing evolved to survive yet. Maybe evolution built in a gene to counter overpopulation.

Everything adapted very well to die in its surrounding.

After thousands of years we're still in an early stage of evolution, the embryo stage like we havent seen the light yet not even having eyes to see it..

not ever having been born.

What does the future hold?

It's morphin' time!

There are species of fungi and jellyfish that are essentially immortal.

It would be difficult to define anything as “immortal” at this point, since Time, itself, has not yet ended, and immortality is usually defined as “living forever”, or to put it another way, until the end of Time.

I suppose that theoretically immortality can be achieved if you travel at the speed of light. Your own time would crawl by while billions of years could pass in the rest of the universe, making you essentially immortal to everyone but yourself and whoever might be traveling with you.

Immortality would cause overpopulation when not mastered.

If you fell into a black hole, the time dilation would be such that while you would percieve no temporal difference for yourself (and you would actually be spaghettified, turn into a plasma and die), you would be able to observe nearly the entire history of the rest of the universe, looking outwards.

Water bears certain bacteria I think there is even a jellyfish that ages backwards.

And that's just the stuff we have found. There many animals yet to discover. And we don't understand everything about all the animals we do know.

Those who believe in the soul believe it to be immortal and all the rest is just dirt that the soul covers itself in.

I'd rather longevity rather then immortality.

I think immortality would be literally Hell. Tens of thousands of years of dealing with human stupidity. All of your friends dying, and the new friends dying, and so on forever. Just the sheer and utter boredom.

Immortality would definitely be like Hell, with only one station that you couldn't turn off...and never able to leave.

Or to quote the great Cheyenne peace chief White Antelope's death song at the Sand Creek Massacre:


Another respected Cheyenne chief, White Antelope, had, like Black Kettle, trusted the US soldiers and convinced his people to do so. When he saw the troops shooting at the Indians, he folded his arms across his chest and began singing the death song—Nothing lives long/Only the earth and the mountains. Nothing lives long/Only the earth and the mountains. He was among the first of 163 to die.

And yeah, it sums up the truth for all material bodies.

So, I guess someone would come up with the ultimate Simulator where each new map, is a reincarnation. And just to keep the game interesting, you get your memory wiped clean after every map. But to be honest, something isn't honest with that scenario. You might get fed to a alligator way too soon in that life... Cutting it short. Or, you might get aborted, never getting a chance to play the map. I wonder who would create such a system... Me thinks we need a new system... Yes, I agree, Immortality is hell, but being eaten alive is a new level of hell we don't need...
