Do you want to live forever?

I have answered some discussions about fears. I have lots of things that i am scared of: roosters, spiders, and insects that might bit me. I feel apprehensive before surgery or going to the dentists. I'm fearful of criticism or others may hurt or abuse me physically. But the worst fear that I have is getting old. I want to stay young forevermore. Do you feel the same? So you want to live forever young?

I would like to live a long and happy fulfilling life. That does not necessarily mean it has to be forever. Forever entails an endless time. So much can happen. I'm not sure i would want to endure everything in life forever.

If you're a fortune teller, that might be possible.

Most of us are feared of such things like spiders and etc. The easy way is that just keep awy from that. Problem solved. Don't feel scared of getting old. Old age is not happening in a day or two. It is a process and slowly happening to you. Now you may be 20-23 and thinking of your 50-60 and 70s and all. Don't jump directly to the old age. Enjoy where you are now. I am sure that you must have enjoyed at the time of your school days. Surely. Like that now your teen age also you are enjoying. When you become 35-40 age, you will get the same age group of people as your friends and I am sure that you will enjoy that time also. Gradually, when you become older, you will get used with your life. And also, a matured behaviour will make you more concrete. Even though our physical appearance look older, our mind and thougths will be always like an youngster only. So don't worry, be happy. The time will take care of you and surely you will learn to how to adjust with your old age. You have your parents, and elder people at home. Look them they also enjoying their present life with maximum limit. So, we all will become older. It is the law of nature, we cannot do any thing. It SHOULD happen like that. What do you think. Also, once you will get married, and later you will (may) get child and all. Once you are along with your children, your mind will be of their age only. Gradually you will live with them as the child only. These all are some sort of psychological phenomenon to make us energetic. Never think of such things are bad or don't hate it. Enjoy the age process and give way to the coming generation. I think I am little lengthy. Let me stop for time being. Good wishes and warm regards, Thank-s

Thats a tricky question. The knowledge you get in a few lifespan would be great. Imagine what you could do with that kind of knowledge, being forever young and your mind stays just as sharp. That would be really really nice. I would really like that, I love to absorb as much knowledge as I can before my time is up. However, living forever and watching the people around you, the people you love and care for dying one by one would be very traumatic. Unless you want to live as a hermit and just keep everything to your self..

No. How long would it be before you got sick of living in general? Nothing could possibly be exciting anymore, not even something like eating. After all, you've done it a billion times, and perhahps even tasted everything you've ever wanted to taste, or see what you wanted to see, do what you wanted to do.

It would be great live forever, but you must imagine that these kind of things have some problems like the great amount of people living at same world, it will collapse some day, because of the great amount, but if I could live forever... I would like to discover all the universe and find new things, but who knows... maybe someday we could live more... but not forever

I don't want immortality but I want to grow old and wise. On the physical aspect though, I want to look vibrant and womanly when I die. I don't want to die ugly and wrinkly.

I believe in bit different way. God has given us such a beautiful chance to live as most powerful creature on the earth. Then we must enjoy each and every status of it. As liking is another chapter of it. And coming on to that chapter, to stay young is up to us. Eat simple, do regular diet, live discipline life. Don't let anything make you older. May physically you body parts go weaker, but always try to be young mentally. Most importantly done fears of it, it will arrive one day is certain, then why should we west our actual youth in fearing the up coming old age!!!!! Just be young, think young forever, try to keep your self physically fit and charged up always, do yoga, exercises, you need to invest a lot to maintain you youth for long time. But to achieve it, you need to start today.

Being old is a rule of nature. It can't be changed.Try to accept it calmly,because fear can't increase our life time and quality at all.The most important thing is your attitude to your life rather than fear about something must hanppen sometime.Although deatch and getting old can't be avoided, we can still look forward to better life and try to postpone their coming time.I think that is the point.

do you want to live forever? well yeah of course i would,,, well if you think about it the only problem that you're going to face is your emotional problem were you will have no one that could accompany you for the rest of eternity but the rest will be fine, first of all you will have lots of time to make you wealth grow and the eternal youth? who would want that?.... well its my opinion pretty shallow but true

I am scared of roosters too! And chicken, and birds! Wheew. If all of us were told that we are all going to live forever, then I might say that this world is a different place now, everyone will act differently. I wanted to live forever, but I am not certain if what age I am going to choose. A child who cries because of toys and candies or because she wants to play more. A young girl who is fear of loosing someone she really loves. Or an old man, who experienced almost everything about life but is fear of being alone and left by her children. I want to live forever with a stable and satisfied life.

Im 22. I want to be forever young. Seems like just yesterday i graduated high school. I get depressed definetly sometimes when i think about it. I think its important though just to focus on good things about your age no matter how old you are. When i was 16 i couldnt do what i can do now. My parents still ran the show. So i guess just look for the good in every present age your in. Thats what i do.

I think it would be pretty boring to live forever. Sometimes even in our lives currently, with no activities to do, we find ourselves bored to the max. What more to live forever. I think God is fair and he gives an amount of years for all of us to live in this world and do good and remember Him. I'll try my best to strive for that. I mean, this is my opinion, others might differ though..
