IMO, it would suck, anyone you fell in love with would die, no one could understand your plight, and you couldn't kill yourself.
It seems that people just want to remain in control.

Very simple. No.
Because I would go insane.

Put simply, Yes, I would want to live forever, but that would require 2 things... 1) I'm in this body, and 2) I can decide to return to the universal collective (end my life) at any time I choose. I would not want to be immortal, basically... just be able to live indefinitly given that I don't get killed. I would LOVE to see how life is in 500 years and hopefully have a little bit of the memory of this time to compare to. I love to observe things happening. Loved ones? If I can't handle it, I want the option of ending it.
Brain in a jar? Nope... not for me. VR won't do at all. I want the real thing. Besides, a lot of the time your mind goes before your body... although there have been some super-sharp people at old ages.
