I rather enjoy conversations over such topics, one reason is the fact that I am yet to deal with my own mortality, and I am honestly doubting if I ever will.

There is so much to this world, our world.. A single spec in the grand scheme of things in the universe, a universe so vast as to be immeasurable even to our greatest minds, billions upon billions of stars spanning their way across the cosmos, but in the stars lay stories and adventures that is yet to reveal themselves to us, for now, our species must be content with the almost infinite amount of vistas of stories on our world..

So much have happened in the story of our species alone in just two hundred years, it'd be near impossible to imagine where we might stand two thousand years in the future, will mankind have turned on itself like a savage beast, will it have elevated itself to a higher state, will it have fallen from grace - I got to admit, my deepest wish in this life is for immortality, but to not play an active part in humanity, I just desire to stand on the sideline and watch as history unfolds.

Humanity and our imagination, is one of the best stories in the universe no doubt, but sadly, none of us ever finish reading the book, it is still being written, and personally, I feel rather cheated off my ending, I do not want humanity to end, but I want to watch and see if we reach beyond our own fateful star, the thing have shown us light for longer than we have even existed.

Even though there is a lot of suffering, sadness, pain and hatred in our stories too, it is why I am in a love/hate relationship with our world, what makes it beautiful is that it is flawed, conflict arises from us all being different, but our differences is what makes life interesting, we need to know darkness to know the full meaning of light.

I don't see why you would ever want life to end, certain suffering I know could inspire people, but my conviction as to the lack of an afterlife is certain, I see only darkness waiting

One of my favorite quotes of all time was from a book I read.

"Let this be my final lesson. Everyone and everything has a time to die." - Terciel, The Sabriel Trilogy

I may believe in an afterlife, and you (or others) may not. As much as we quarrel and fight among each other. We throw so much at each other, and even come to wishing the worst upon someone for something they may believe.

Whether someone believes something as a comfort from death, the reality remains that they will one day face and experience it.

I personally find little to gain from wishing or wanting something else. I love my family, my mom, my brothers and sisters, and friends. I will enjoy every day I spend with them, and forever loathe the day they leave me.

In the grand scheme, humanity isn't all that important. The only solution I have found, the only way to be content with anything is to be the best ******* person you can be.
User avatar #79 to #77 - certifiedidiot ONLINE (09/09/2013) [-]
Well in the grand scheme of things, let's think of the universe to be as humongous as science depicts it, billions upon billions of stars and very likely much more yet to be revealed, then yes, human life is rather unimportant, the thing is though, would any life be vitally important in the grand scheme of things?

New stars are born and so are planets constantly, the universe itself seems to be affected by the same life cycle that we are eternally caught within, thus stars and planets share the same fate as us in the end and I have to admit, existence is what is important to begin with, we could advance for thousands of years with our technology and master the universe itself, but what then?

Is it truly the final frontier, is there anything after space for us to master.. Imagine that, humanity finally discovering everything, every species, every laws of physics, every secret of life and the universe and dark matter..

What would be left to be important?

A happy and content life as far as I can imagine.
User avatar #142 to #79 - rhetoricalfunny (09/10/2013) [-]
Nope. It would be a meaningless life.

Humans always strive for more. We consume more, we take in more. We're always striving for something else and never satisfied. No matter what, there will never be a day where everything is at our disposal.

If such a day were to come, you can guarentee that we won't last long after the last secret will have revealed itself.

But that day will never come. Never.

So why ******* give a **** , why not strive to be content with YOUR own life, and be a good person for yourself.

I love you for saying what i always thought.

The fact that my life will end does not worry me. What worries me is the overwhelming sense of nostalgia i get for times that have past before my time and times that will pass after my time without me seeing them or having a chance to live through them. That is why immortality is my greatest wish

We die so that something/someone new can enjoy the beauty of the world we live in
User avatar #78 to #30 - daentraya (09/09/2013) [-]
When you die, you happen to be dead, and the dead don't care.
What I'm worried about is whether my dead will be extremely painful and super uncomfortable, and that i have to live with hearing aid, fake teeth, those scooter thingies, with my brain going weird because we're not supposed to get this old, and not be able to really do anything but to look back at the empty life i lived.
Now that's more disturbing than the thought of nothingness
User avatar #81 to #78 - certifiedidiot ONLINE (09/09/2013) [-]
I know relatives that are quite functional at the age of 75, how you age is a matter of genes/luck, some of us hit rock bottom faster than others, some never experience it.

And honestly, I live everyday in the hope that tomorrow will be better, regardless if my current day was shaite or amazing, I live to forever chase happiness and fortune that lays waiting in the next sunrise, and I don't see why I would stop just because I got older, I don't think I'd stop finding movies or tv shows entertaining when I'm old, I don't think I suddenly would grow tired of games or good food and relaxation.

And honestly, with over seven billion people, some of us are just simply going to be one of the masses, never to be the super hero with a perfect body, mind and moral compass that stands out in the crowd, some of us are just average, whether we like it or not, but we are still capable to enjoy things in life, just as much as anyone else, I wouldn't mind an empty life, I just don't want mine to end, I don't want the hunt for tomorrow to end, I don't want part ways from the sunrise that have been there since my birth and millions of years before and millions of years later, to think of that, the very sun in the sky that we have constructed so much novel, religion and culture around, is the same shining beacon of light that every human being throughout the ages have looked upon and bathed in, our entire lives are the longest thing we'll ever do, but that time is just a mere grain amongst millions of others in the hourglass.

And trust me, the dead do care, but the dead can no longer speak.
User avatar #83 to #81 - daentraya (09/09/2013) [-]
You're quite the poetic one. I stopped having that ability some long time ago, in terms of life. I think that the saying 'death is what gives life value' is true for most. We want to make as much of our stay as possible, and i have yet to begin

But nope. The moment you die, your brain dies, everything that was you dies, and the matter that happened to be caught in the matrix of your body will be just matter again. There is nothing left to care, nothing left of 'you' but information in other people. Life just happens, and then you bump around like bundle of information you are, interacting and changing as you bump along, and then you die. It's simple

"Fear not what you feel, death is not the ending
Cause dying is the key to life
Returning to what were, the cycle near completion
The wheel of life goes on and on and on"
- Timeless Miracle, into the enchanted chamber
#89 to #83 - certifiedidiot ONLINE (09/09/2013) [-]
I believe that to be what happens too when we die, which is kind of why I fear it, as I said, I don't want it to end.

And not really poetic, I just get random bursts of inspiration, should have seen my final english essay at the exams, that thing was inspired by John Henry Eden from Fallout 3.

As much as I want to live for ever, I am not sure if it's down right safe for the human evolution to do such a thing, then again, we should start to take stern control of our procreation, Earth is a limited amount of space, and we're far away from colonizing other hospitable planets.

Then again, we aren't exactly optimizing the space and resources available at our disposal at the current moment.

I gotta say mate, I** HIGHLY** recommend it, very deep story line about one possible tree of human evolution, and I think they convey realistic dilemmas and problems that would be inflicted on our modern society, I just generally enjoy pretty much everything about the game, weapon customization, stealth, perks and abilities, soundtrack, all of it really, you really got to try it, but you have to remember to get into the story line.
User avatar #117 to #115 - NinjaHermit (09/09/2013) [-]
Ah, believe me, I always get into the story-lines. RPGs are my favorite genre, and I especially love the ones with long, intricate stories that you can really sink your teeth in

I get this, I know the feeling you are trying to convey, because i feel it too. But even these words are not enough to describe that lonely/scared/awed feeling that i get when i think about our possible insgnificance. There is some type of anxiety i get when i think that one day I will not even be a memory, my body. if it's lucky, will have been buried in the ground for millions of years, by this time, either all humanity has been erased, or it has moved on to something else. All i will do is lie there waiting for the end of the Earth's time, when the sun explodes and all of human history is erased. no one would have heard of us, no one would remember my name. i view it as a second death, real death. my fear is that when someone in a distant world looks up at their sky into the direction of our galaxy and says "there's only empty space there". Our own memories will be lost, our achievements will not be seen. I sympathize with that man/woman/child who has died alone,thousands of years ago, and whose memory is forgotten now; I weep for that person who I haven't even heard of and never will
User avatar #111 to #30 - NinjaHermit (09/09/2013) [-]
Your post, and especially the second to last paragraph, calls to mind one of my favorite quotes:

"The world is not beautiful. Therefore, it is."

It also reminds me of the poem Ozymandias, if you've read it. I have a keen interest in history. Countless countries and empires, big and small, have come and gone. But likewise, I, too, desire to also bear witness to what the future holds. All that lives must die, but how far will we go before the end? How far will I go? So, I don't know about true immortality, but I think I'd be content to see even just the next couple of centuries.

Although, that being said, I don't so much fear being forgotten. There's a sort of comfort in anonymity, and a sort of freedom in solitude, if you get what I'm saying (plus, some ladies dig an air of mystery, heh). I don't really care about everlasting fame or glory.
I'd just like to let the winds of fate blow me where they will, coming and going among people over the centuries, observing and interacting with them. Bearing witness to the whims of culture/sapient being and circumstance. Studying, learning whatever I can. And not trying to overtly influence humanity, but still doing what I can to help those in need that I encounter. Haha, kinda like some nameless, roaming guardian angel of sorts.
User avatar #33 to #30 - itsmedumbass (09/09/2013) [-]
I agree entirely with you.
My greatest fear isn't death or anything like that, why be afraid of the inevitable. My greatest fear is being forgotten, I fear that I will be lost to the sands of time and that nothing will remain of myself. My descendants might know of me, but that is all. All I will be to them is some guy in a faded photograph.
And so I am going to spend my life making sure that the world will remember me long after I am gone. I don't care if I am remember for causing WW3, because in the end I'll be remembered, and that's all I ever wanted.
User avatar #114 to #33 - NinjaHermit (09/09/2013) [-]
Haha. I think that's a very human sentiment, to want to leave some sort of legacy. It's probably partly due to that sentiment that ancient peoples constructed such large pyramids, monuments, etc.
User avatar #40 to #33 - certifiedidiot ONLINE (09/09/2013) [-]
If you want to be remembered in the modern day and age.. It is extremely unlikely, we'll all be forgotten by the end of time, being the biggest movie star and you'll be forgotten, and when it comes to science, it's even harder.

Murderers is the easiest path, but even they are forgotten.

And I fear death because I know that with it, I will love everything I have ever held dear, every waking moment of fear, pain, suffering, joy, happiness, love.. Everything, if it was anyone else who was threatening to take that much away from you, you'd fight it tooth and nail, you'd want it destroyed.

Either you're the admin who installed it in the first place and knew what you were doing, or you should contact the admin of the computer on which you saw that window appear.

Our goal in life is to take care of our common heritage: our children and the world in which they will grow up.

When I think of having kids in the future, this is exactly how I feel. Science has been my life and I sometimes like to think about how awesome it would be to raise a child and see the amazement in his face when I tell him/her things that will blow his/her mind.

I find that it is getting more and more difficult to amaze the younger generation with technology.
It's what they've grown up with and known all their lives, so it isn't as impressive to them than it would be for someone who understands what we have come from and can compare it to where we are now.
So you should raise them as Amish until they're in their teens and do a 180 on them.

I'm pretty sure that somewhere inside every human is a desire to be a parent to someone. They don't even have to be your own flesh and blood, so long as they are there for you to bring up. To guide them through their first steps (literally and figuratively) through life, teach them everything that you know, so that they might become something better than you were in your life. So they can experience the world that you will one day leave behind.

Sorry if that came off as a bit melodramatic, I'm just in a... rather deep mood at the moment, I suppose, and I've always had similar feelings about the concept of parenting.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who daydreams about going back in time and showing things to Galileo or Da Vinci.

I've actually thought about this quite a bit. I obviously wouldn't speak their language, especially if it's a point where everyone is still speaking Latin (nobody actually knows how Latin was pronounced, all we have are best guesses, so even someone fully trained in Latin would probably still sound like an idiot to them), so I'd probably have to fake being mute. So I'd be the genius savant mute using gestures and chalk to explain advanced physics or astronomy, or show Da Vinci how close he was to flight by correcting his equations.

That could be a pretty interesting series, actually. Some scientist accidentally gets thrown back in time, and has to keep jumping to try and get home, but can't resist helping out the historical inventors and scientists he meets along the way.
