If everything becomes immortal even human being, then what will happen?
An interesting idea! I think we would begin inhabiting other planets, and learn about the self to a degree where we no longer had wars, or the human condition in full flight as we have now.
Hmm. someone is either waking up or thinking beyond the pale.
According to the inception of humanity, immortality is the 'beginning' of its new existence. The previous inception (called the Adamic Inception) resulted in the flawing and slow descent of humanity into its own self -into madness, being controlled by an organic processor of light (the mind).
The mention of immortality is over 6k years old in nearly every human circle. This means the concept gave birth to them, existed before them -and perhaps exists for them.
The result of transforming into an organic immortal, would result in a huge drop in population, an increase of unity, the total removal of violence as the succumbing to the abilities of immortality would swallow up every gram of human grossness. Free Will and freedoms unknown would await humanity. Freedoms they once knew -and clung to even as their inception slowly killed.
Make no mistake, immortality of humans is inevitable. It is -for lack of a better term- their destiny, their fulfillment of their own evolution.
Those with cause to doubt it, will be removed from nature, as other creatures have been removed. That is the anvil of Choice. Certainly this is exemplified by the billions of humans who have existed and returned to the ground. The iron in the firepot: nowhere is it mandated a human must die. And that sears deep with a single question: why have they, then. And that is where you should begin to ask, to consider and meditate on. That is the point of entry to understanding and the removal of the stumbling block of reason/thought/knowledge.
Now a revealing of Free Will has caused the re~ignition of that understanding -that cause, that effect, that purpose -the concept of eternal life.
We'd overpopulate the earth. We'd have wars for resources. We'd find ways around immortality for those we felt were standing in the way of our comfortable survival. Progress would cease and we'd become less humane.
We can't benefit from immortality until we learn how to be more compassionate to others in the brief time we already are accustomed to.
I concur. The human problem would have to be fixed first.
Emile, I agree with you, but I can't help but feel that ironically it is our innate fear of death that leads to many of these wars and resource scrambles to begin with.
Perhaps if we weren't driven by such a fear we might progress towards a more civil future.
If no one dies, would babies still be born?
Would we still decrease in health as we grew older or would we cease to age?
If the population increased and the resources dwindled we would be alive for ever in a terrible world which some would be desperate to escape from.
On the physical side of existence all physical beings must die. Even the stars in the universe take birth and death according to our scientists. This planet will die. Physical death in this world for all living being, and of this planet is going to be the physical reality. Now what happens after death is a topic for a different discussion.
In other words, it is not logical to have immortality on a planet that is temporary.
Sorry to intrude on such wisdom, but could you explain this and provide proof --esoteric or empirical-- to valid such a claim? Seriously?!!!!!
Given the nature of the universe, ALL things ARE physic --visible or not; collected/organic/organized or not, to the purest sentient parameter, precisely how does a star die? Granted its present stasis is altered, evolves, but certainly the energy of it does not end (as we have observed light of a supernova star some 100MM miles away, that happened ages ago, yet we see it and enjoy it... and many other examples, like fossils and bones)
Physic 'beings' are much more complex than a simple hydrogen to helium mass --even with the sheer massiveness of size and field. The human being is indeed much more complex and certainly much more deserving of a better 'end' than that of a star, no?
So physic death is equal to physic reality? Therefore reality is death? What then are humans presently experiencing, death? Perhaps, yes. But certainly it is not the actual reality of their being, nor their existence. Death is an illusion.
Actually, logic says immortality on this planet is infinite and generally perceived as doable and conceivable. Logic --that which supersedes Reason-- dictates that knowing is no enough; that Reason (which is nothing more than binary luminosity; duality; parallel, finite, causality v effectiveness ) is the temporal you mention and that immortality IS the evolutionary result of a previous stasis of understanding. The likes of which humanity endeavored to lose, but has now regained 'consciousness of'...
Your theory is err, whack.
If there is a chance that humans could acquire immortality then travel between star systems might be possible - so we should make sure humans are all killed off quickly - before we spread our aggressive madness and greed to other planets and totally ruin the whole Universe.

As some Hubbers have suggested empiricism aka scientific exploration is the only destiny that humans must aim for? Empiricism is tethered solely to materialism and physicalism. But humans as a specie have unique qualities and qualifications that no other...

Would you rather be immortal or know exactly when you will die?The answer might seem obvious, but the more I think about it the less certain I am!

We all know how to recognize life, and death. I have heard that modern medical science does not understand why we age and die. Cellular structure and reproduction "should" theoretically go on and on. So why does it not?

Science and religion has led to mass social order and material advancements. Arguably, these were necessary developments in our human evolution. However, in either case, they have set rules to the understanding of our existence based on human decisions that have dictated these two...

What does it mean to be human being?As I am getting more advanced in my age ( I never get old), I was pondering on what makes a person a human being?
