Well it may not skew the distribution as a normal distribution is normally only classed as valid a certain number of deviations from the norm. It may
be a stretch for the statistical model but may not skew it: more expecting more from the model than would normally be thought as proper. Also
sometimes a distribution such as the normal distribution is used asymetrically: only one half is used. A statistical model is after all just a model
and so not perfect.There would also be the problem as as a normal distribution goes on forever at both ends, it would produce people that lived for a
minus amount of time: one reason why it is utilized for only a certain number of distributions. So the model has limits. I suppose from a viewpoint
the question is if immortality existed, then people who had never lived who should also, Getting into the mysticism and metaphysics and religion there
would have to be people who went to heaven and never existed: and being in heaven more than others...... Just a thought.
ok... that hurt my brain a little but think I've got my head wrapped around what you are saying in that last.
the poeple who live for minus time, lol... interesting.
ok, what if for the sake of order that this distribution of immortality could be more widespread if people gravitated away from the urge to procreate?
... unless of course the existing immortals brought enough order into the world by allowing new births when those new people will have homes. right
now, we don't even have enough homes (homes, not houses) for the people who already exist. we fix that, we get immortality... we sit back and relax
for a while instead of popping babies out left and right and look closely at our key problems... with a new found ongoing intellect that has a lot of
time to gain info. to me, that's head way.
also, even though people have been alive on earth a while... many are simply revisiting. therefore, it might not be so hard to distribute this
immortality to more and more people... but those people would not be born into a world of chaos as you see it, but into a more stable form of order...
which equals much happier people in general who can settle into a long long stable life.
also, this would give us a chance to look at each individual very closely to find out more about who they really are...and who they have been... or
will be. If we could help them understand this, this would enrich their lives assuming we had gotten rid of all the LIES first.
because regardless of all the risks and all the misery in life, the real problem is simply not having the truth.
We ALL should be able to carry TRUTH freely. If we could, much evil would be eliminated.... but we still treat TRUTH as a secret commodity.
We are never going to get there. Not because we can't, but because bad men will be making the choice for us. that's why.
Very interesting. Have you ever read the vanity cards at the end of two and a half men? You and Chuck Lorre have the same writing style and the same
stream of consciousness. Take that as a compliment, please, unless you're Charlie . . . . .
Anyhow, I do believe there are some extremely long lived people in our midst, probably due to genetics. I'm sure they move around a lot to keep the
boredom away. I bet the immortality wouldn't regrow limbs, or regrow teeth so therefore we should be looking for someone with a mouth full of
implants and missing a finger or toe at the very least.
Great thread, OP,
