Great article, @Hawaii_Jake but… while I certainly would like to live a good, long life, in good health, I’m not sure I want to live forever. Who knows? Maybe death is the beginning our “next great adventure.”
Just a little philosophical and existential musing there; not looking for an argument.
Fascinating article! I particularly admired this sentence: It is possible to imagine a distant future in which most other species of life are extinct but the ocean will consist overwhelmingly of immortal jellyfish, a great gelatin consciousness everlasting. . . . I’m rather smug with my “great gelatin consciousness everlasting” right now!
