unless we die from getting hit by a truck, drowning or something..

Will you religious people allow such nanobots in your system? Or will you let yourselves die so you can meet your god?

I answered affirmative, though I am not religious.

With nanotech, there's always the question of 'how immortal are you?', but generally speaking, yes I'll take all the existence I can get.

In 50 years I'll be 85, so unless this restores my youth, no thanks.

Most sci-fi, and what scientific speculation there is on the subject, has this kind of nanotech reversing aging, and bringing your body to it's adult ideal state.

No way, I'd much rather be in Heaven than here.

Depending on how far we advance in 50 years I wouldn't mind living longer, but immortality here on earth scares me. By the time I reached 1,000 my sense of time would be warped to the point of insanity.

Whos to say heaven actually exists? Would suck if it didnt, but youd never know since youd cease to exist.

You might have a wild DMT trip making you think you go to heaven, then when you approach the bright light everything fades away and thats the end of you.

Id much prefer immortality.



I am worried however, that this technology may become available before we populate other planets. Population control would need to be crazzy strict

Better the devil you know than the devil you don't, eh?

In a less melodramatic way, I agree. I like this existence, and I'd rather hold on to it for as long as I can.

No. I am quite content with death, and not because I am unhappy.
