Would you live an aboriginal lifestyle for a while in exchange for immortality?
Suppose medical science achieved practical immortality (you don’t age and, barring accidents, you can live indefinitely). Now, you’re not superman, and you can die by accident such as drowning, or getting shot, or falling off a cliff, or being eaten by a bear, etc.
The problem is that if everyone was immortal, the Earth’s population would reach into the trillions in a short time.
Therefore, most governments have decreed that anyone who opts for the “treatment” must agree to embark on a colonization ship to one of the new Earth-like planets that have been discovered.
But the catch is there will be no technology except what can be brought on board the ship. And the few thousand people on the new planet will not support an advanced technological civilization.
So you’ll be living like an aborigine for a few hundred or thousand years until civilization advances on your new planet.
