ok here's a problem i though it would be interesting. let say if someday in the future, science can give people immortality. by immortality i mean no failing health or aging, the only way we can die if all our cell is destroyed, kinda like a nuclear explosion. then we live and live and live....until one day the universe re-folds itself, thus destorying all life ever existed. now heres the question, can we live on beyond this universe? such as discover another dimension where time and space don't occupy? i know it's hard to grasp, but can this thing happen?

I've heard of shamans stepping into other dimensions and leaving this physical world. But it takes almost a lifetime to achieve it. The way to immortality is through Christ, you must die atleast once and and your soul must be cleansed in order to be immortal. Most people continually are reborn until they get it right. This is the end times, the antichrist will be in power soon. Best advice is to believe in God and that Jesus died for our sins. Learn, study, understand and PRAY

I've often fantasized about being immortal where nothing... not even the destruction of the Earth will kill me... but what then? Move to another solar system?? That will be fun for awhile (long while)... then after that another galaxy? Eventually I will run out of galaxies after they all die out, and what will I do with the rest of my time... I am immortal, cannot die... no place to live... only hope that one day the universe will cease to exist, and that will kill me...but if it won't? Solitaire in space will only be fun for so long. So I want to be immortal, with a little 'self destruct' ability built in... then all will be perfect

But, have we ever considered the benefits of a few given this option? Ok, let`s forget about the moral, fairness, or many other arguments for a bit. Just the straight view: Ok, it takes us many years to be able to learn what we need to learn to develop science and everything. By the time scientists are not only experts, but on cutting edge ideas, then they are about 1/2 over in their work lives if not lives themselves. If we could extend the life of these dedicated people, then science and society would advance very quickly as they could concentrate on only the new stuff, not just teaching all the up and coming people, and by the time they make one good discovery they would die and others would have to learn from them. But, they could continue their work and advance up exponentially. Now, the dark side... they would advance us very far quickly probably... but the people running things would be very low in knowledge to these people and that would be dangerous.
