If they do/did exist, would it really matter?
An immortal person would still just be a person. The Buddha, however enlightened, was still a human being. He isn't immortal in the sense of the
carrying on his physical body, but has been immortal for more than 2000 years through words and spirit.
If someone is immortal in the sense this thread mentions, they seem to hide that fact and thus really don't provide any known influence directly to
you in a way that is relevant. Physically immortal or not, as I said, they're still a person in a human body just like you or me.
Recently two great medical advances have been made in the past two months, 1. reversing the aging process of cells, (successful in rats and warming up
to begin human trails), 2. successful reproduction of adult stem cells. These advances themselves could be the scientific cocktail for the fountain of
life and everyone on this forum could potentially live as long as they please.
The amount of time an individual lives doesn't matter, it's what one decides to do with the time that is given to them.(Gandalf, anyone?)
