Living forever: part one

the reason to live forever

survival
Why not live forever? Living forever is simply surviving. All creatures on this earth do everthing they can to survive, why should we be any different? We should not accept death as the outcome of a life lived. We need to cure death, and it starts with perception, followed by desire. Immortality is simply surviving death. Evolution is simply survival, eating your own young or allowing young to eat you is an example of animals surviving, killing other threats and procreatiing is survival. If we focus our energy and research on life extension....you and I can live forever. As immortals we can accomplish all the things we wish we had time for in our current limited situation.

attitude
Simply by adopting the attitude that you have the CHANCE to live forever,
will result in better decisions about your health, your treatment of others, your care of the earth, and energize your thirst for knowledge. Immortality will only happen with your hard work. there will be unbelievers and people who simply do not want to live forever (I have had some very valid debates with people on why they would not want to live forever) which is fine.

happiness
There are endless amounts of problems in this world, tons of research left to be done and inventions and creations to be made. The choice to strive for immortality, is a choice to make the life you live, and the world you live in a good one. Time can create happiness, as you will quickly understand that you have full control of your own future. Immortality is for those that are happy or wish to be happy with their lives.

pro life extension blogs are great. Keep it up, and mention imminst.org everywhere you can. It helps raise the sites ranking so we can get this crucial cause to grow in time for us all.

A couple technical comments:

"ive" should be spelled "I've"

"extention" should be spelled "extension".

Great job explaining why it would be personally desirable to live forever. You should also come up with some of the reason why society would benefit. Such as, less health care costs, less suffering, more respect for life and a more peaceful planet, yada, yada, yada...
