    I suppose of course I would be 'happier' if I knew I could live forever but then on the other hand, I'm a realist so I believe in living for the present.  I'm also an optimist, so I figure I should just think positively that I will be here for a very long, long time and make the most of that time!!

    We do live infinitely long, just not here in this world. I don't think I would be very happy if I thought that I would stay in this life forever, things would not have the same meaning & times would never be precious in that moment; not if you had forever to experience them all again. I would get very bored aswell after so long.

    I guess not because the meaning of life would be lost. There would be no incentive to do anything. There would be no reason to jump out of the plane with a parachute today if you knew that you'll be able to do it tomorrow. Now we know that we have only a limited space of time so we have to hurry up and live life to the fullest. If we lived for ever the would be no reasö to do this anymore.

    Thats one of those tough ones, because on the one hand, you do, after all get to live forever. I think everyone can kind of have an appreciation for that. However, it also means you get to see your family and friends die, possibly many times over. It would take a toll on you.

    I believe we all will live forever as keepitnatural said but where that will be is up to the individual person.

    Well, I'd never worry about dying. And I wouldn't worry about my health either. I wonder if that's a good thing ....

    Never! I think whatever life time we have is good enough to enjoy life. More than that might be kind of boring.

    Nobody can live forever because when people are born  a bit of 'forever' has already passed them by. People are not 'around' - for instance - when their parents are babies.

    Eternity is an absolute and cannot be interrupted.

    Infinity is also an absolute and cannot be demarcated.

    Absolutes cannot be broken down and parcelled out in pieces.

    Therefore if somebody says to you, 'Follow me and you will live forever,' they are lying and you would best be advised to look for ulterior motives because liars only ever serve their own best interests - not yours.

    Forget about what I think. Will others who deal with me day in and day out be happier if they were to know that I would live infinitely? Surely not!

    I think one can feel happy with the idea that he will live infinitely long life but when he has to live a life that long he will never be happy because life has child hood, youth, adult hood and old age. If a person lives forever  or for a quite long time he will suffer from many diseases and will have a long old age which will never make him happy.
    In the old times people tried their best to find the Al-chemist stone and elixir of life to live forever but tales and fables say that the person who found eternal life never get satisfied.
    Like any other greed this would be a greed which can never make a person happy in the long run.

    Who asks this question?
    What is the state of anyone to ask this?
    With all due respect, but is this a happy person?
    Or is it someone who feels lost, in the past and/or in the future;
    Start living in the now. Open up your heart to the Devine, and you will be guided to the path to hapiness...
