Immortality

Even if you were like the Highlander and healed from any injury, how long could you realistically expect to live?

Like there is always a non-zero chance that an asteroid from deep space could hit your house and atomise you instantly, as well as a lot of other non-zero chances of catastrophic shit, and if you live long enough one is guaranteed to happen later or sooner.

Like being buried alive in a landslide and just being stuck underground, being presumed dead, and that dirt solidifying into solid rock and being stuck there for billions of years until the Earth is destroyed by the sun running out of fuel.

There are other forms of immortality we could talk about, but presumably most of them would be effectively limited by the sum of these kinds of low probability events, where on average you would wind up in a situation that either killed you or ended any meaningful existence.

Meaning you could technically work out the average 'immortal' lifespan, given the nature of their 'immortality'. Like if there was in total a one-in-a-million chance you'd die each year, the average immortal would live a million years, some more, and some less in a bell curve.
Also the chances of just finding yourself stuck but not dead.

That being the case, would you want to be immortal, and what probabilities would you find acceptable?

      Not a new idea. Zoomies can use Deadpool or whatever.

      Also:
      The Man From Earth:

      Dorian Gray
      Vandal Savage, (X-Men villain)
      Dracula
      'The Immortal' from 'Invincible'
      Gandalf the Gay from gay LOTR, (which is full of gay homosexuals)
      Doctor Who
      Koschei the Deathless
      Morgan le Fay

      Take your pick.

      is your detachment based on anything communicable found outside fiction in media?
      your body is your soul - the gestalt harmony of physical elements that animates the static to life.

      I wager you are unattractive. Its mostly the uglies that deny sex positivity, looks, money, immortality, and everything else they dont have.

    all the risks you list already exsist for mortals? how much of what you do comes down to keeping a roof over your head, your belly full, and a cozy place to sleep? suppose you did cultivate immortality and immediatly didnt need to eat sleep drink breath fornicate or even maintain your bodily temprature? how much of what you do in your life would be required? would you be free of requirements or have new requirements?
    tldr: in regards to slides, build your temple on a foundation of stone.

    I think about it like this.
    Mathematically I Must be forever.
    Of course, I could be 80 years. But that is more unlikely than not, even if it may be possible.

    It's either 50/50 or 1 in 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 that you are live right now only for 89 years, depending on how you think about it

    What I do is assume I am immortal. 80 years of being wrong and oh well so be it. But if I am immortal, I was right and comfy for 1000000000000000000000000000000000 years and more

    Hard to argue with that. I feel like Alan watts

    you could always dig if you were buried by a landslide, would take some years if you were unlucky but who cares since you won't die anyway, it's a opportunity to reflect a bit too while you're at it.

      You could be wind up being packed in earth tight with literally tonnes per square inch so you couldn't move a muscle.

      Also you could easily wind up in an awkward position, like upside down for a few million years.

        Why would an inmortal being care about that?

    what do you mean with "even".
    we all are like that.
    but our regeneration does not happen that fast.
    we age, we die, then we plop out of a new pussy with a fresh new body suit.

    the second part to your question is:
    we have neither beginning nor end.
    we are the Allmighty larping here as homosexuals!
    its because we have had enough of our omni-loneliness, so we are in the process of creating innumerable tulpas within ourselves.
    you and me are God's tulpas!
    this is lila.

    according to Buddha, there is way to cessation, basically tulpa suicide..
    Jesus calls it salvation.
    but these things are contrary to the initial wish of us, to become the many to no longer be lonely.

    If you achieve high enough spiritual stats it quite literally becomes impossible to meet criteria to be offed in any way shape or form; ie the example of a meteor strike becomes literally 0%. Any types of negative events are spiritually averted way before they can happen physically

    Actual immortality would be a curse/
    You would end up seeing and doing everything and everything would become stale.
    A thousand years would pass like a day.

    Christianity deals with this

    Matthew 5:13-14 King James Version (KJV)
    Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted?

    This is a reference to immortality

    How can life be made new as it was when you were a child?

    Only through Christ

    let that sink in

    God bless all

        And your counter argument is?
        Some bacteria are virtually immortal
        Some trees are 10.000 years old

        You are welcome to consider that

        Also no I will not frick off, I am not driven by satan as you perhaps are.

        The is only one way to make life anew, and I won't tell you how I know.

        Pearls before swine and all that

        I wish you well none the less, but there is only one path

          NTA but the counterargument to nonsense bullshit is to point out it's nonsense bullshit. You lose homosexual.
