What are the advantages and disadvantages to living forever?

And I mean on Earth before someone says "we'll live eternally in heaven or hell" -__- Obviously not what I"m talking about.

Endless time to gain mastery over whatever happens to take your interest, a possibly more mature human race, greater memory of the past leading to less conflicts, more respect toward differences, time- one of the few things money just can't buy...

Culture would have it that things hold value within them because, one day, they will not exist. But, personally, I feel that if everything lasted forever, they would be worth just as much. Eternity is a sacrifice. To make that sacrifice gives you just as much worth as if you made the sacrifice of having an end come to you.

Living forever would be no more or less as terrible as things are now. Having an end and having no end are equal and opposite. It comes down to personal taste, therefore. My personal taste would be that I would wish to live forever just so I could see how life in this universe unfolds, no matter how painful it would be to likely spend so much time wasted.

I think it would be just as painful to waste very little time and there be an end to my life knowing I wasted that time.

If ALBERT EINSTEIN would have been become IMMORTAL then, the theory of relativity would have got more explanation and also many discoveries could have done by him which would make human life more better than today's.

BY remaining immortal one would get the information of evolution process in details.

Being immortal one can enjoy each and every moment in his/her life peacefully which one would not have done in the limited time period

SOLUTION TO ALL THE DISADVANTAGES GIVEN BY OTHERS :

Some say that over-population may affect the area,country,earth etc. but guys, don't u have that sense that till that we would find another planets for humans to live-no,doubt technology would be 10000 times better and efficient like there would be flights going from earth to mars, jupiter to saturn like for us it is today's from india to america or mumbai to goa etc.

some even that one should die in peace, but who knows over here that dying is peace or not so,why such statements?????

SO,NO MORE PROBLEM GUYS TO LIVE FOREVER

SO,THINK POSITIVE AND LET HUMAN'S LIVE FOR FOREVER AND EVER

With so much time you could master so much and learn so many things. You'd be so wise, almost godly.

Okay, so on an individual level it would be: losing all the people you love,

becoming bitter and cynical as you learn that you can never really become truly attached to anyone as they may die,

persecution by the rest of the world as they learn of your immortality,

fascination from the other half of the world which may even be worse because they'll perform constant experiments on you,

possible insanity from seeing how the world will be destroyed, having to constantly move,

feeling like a wanderer or outsider, never having someone to love or pass on your legacy to,

never having the peace of death...

It could create an overpopulation issue. With nobody dying, you'd have to figure out where you're gonna put all those people.

Chances are if people did live forever. I am positive people would find a way to inhabit new area's. If a scientist never dies then he could go on learning forever. Making it easier to advance and hopfully move to new world's and or area's.

Exactly. Like I said, scientists would have to deal with the issue of figuring out where to put all those people.

I meant an individual living forever. Not the whole population. Should have clarified.

To all in this life must be its own time. People can not live forever, if people live forever the Earth will be full of people and it will lead to overpopulation and eventually come to an end of the earth. In place of one generation comes another, and it is right because everything in life should be renewed.

Side: Disadvantages

The problem with living forever on Earth would be having to suffer from illness or injury.

I would not want to be immortal!

I would not see my family!

Living forever is a disadvantage because then the powerful people would stay in power forever thus doing what ever they want and not allowing others to move up in life.

If our race lived forever we will probably start games to stop over population like purging, the hunger games ect.

This is 100% true because eventually when the powerful people do what they wont they wont fear death and people will pruge.
