    This is a simple psychological test. To get into the cognitive mind of people the way they they tend to think - whether philosophically, or getting into the core of the subject.

      If we take the definition of "immortal" by its secondary meaning, then we can become "immortal" by:

      1. Having descendants.  Our children and grandchildren, our bloodline if you will, live on into the future.

      2. Leaving behind any number of objects or sayings that are passed on to others as reminders of us (our words are "immortal; we can't take 'em back once we've said them).

      3. WRITINGS that are saved for peoples' future perusal.  Books come to mind.  Even thumb drives, etc. (though those aren't as evident nor as much fun, I think).

      4. We live "immortally" in the minds/hearts of others.  This is similar to #2.

      By those points, the word "immortal" simply means lasting a long time.



      Number 5 is the kicker, and has the definition of lasting eternally, literally "living forever".


      5. Our souls will live immortally, period, according to what I believe the Bible says.   They'll either be in heaven or hell.  That's each person's choice.

        The kicker was not a Ronaldo - it is still relying on words that do not point towards objective truth.

        The first 4 came cheap I think...

      Death will make you an immortal...in the afterlife, that is.

        This afterlife has been scientifically proven I suppose...

    1) Live continuously in the present.
    2) Simply trust that I am (if I die, I won't know it -- and as they say "so far so good").
    3) Go on a hunt for the grail.
    4) Upload my mind-state onto an electronic device, so that if my body dies I can be downloaded into another.
    5) Find Zeus's hidey-hole on mount Olympus and drink some Ambrosia.

    The secret of immortality doesn't come cheap. I can't just post it here for free.

          lol
          If I knew that, I think I'd be hesitant to hand that out for free too.  I watched the Highlander series, and even that didn't reveal the secret.  wink  Just said how to STAY immortal.  haha.  There can be only ONE, remember!? wink

            Yes, and I hated that show for that. What a violent way to have to live. I wouldn't opt for it either. A few hundred years would be nice, but forever? I've got too much curiosity about the other side to live on this side forever.

              Interesting reply Emile R, if not great. If I got that right, then is it that there is some problem to accept immortality? Even if someone makes it a scientific reality, will you consider 'living forever' as like a prison?

              Fascinating...

                I think I would always opt for the known. I talk a big game, but I think I lack the explorer gene. Continued participation in reality always leaves the option that we will discover answers on the spiritual front. Death, now, is a crap shoot. We think we know what we think we know. We don't know anything for sure.

                  That answer is crystal-clear...

                  I just missed the answer.

      Well, I am just joking, but what about starting a business out of this secret of living forever? Bill Gates will sweat...
