But do you really want to exist for all eternity? Try to wrap your mind around eternity. It goes on and on and on. You're trapped. You can't ever escape.
Maybe you're happy, but you will never not be happy. There is no chance you will be excused from beingness.
A billion billion years is less than an eyeblink in terms of how long you will exist. And then multiply that times a billion, and you're not even close to saying how long eternity is.
Do you actually want to exist forever?
