The following question has been on my mind lately, and I truly want to hear from you (yes you, even those of you who have given me terse verbal replies).
Would you live 500 years if the following were assumed:
1) You would be about the same age you're at now until age 480;
2) You could still die of other means (car accident, suicide, etc.);
3) You of course would have to generate income for a much longer period of time.
Some of the answers I've heard have been immediate and enthusiastic: "Yes, of course!" Others have been more guarded, and add qualifiers to their responses. Still others, and I am among this group, answer, "No *))*# way!"
I'm wondering a few things in advance about your responses:
- Why would you, or would you not, choose to live longer?
- What would this mean for relationships, and would you still believe in or get married "till death do you part" ?
- What would you do with all of your extra time? and, if so,
- What stops you from doing what you would do now?
