Do You Really Want to Live Forever?
Agnes Chew, http://loveundwanderlust.wordpress.com , has written an essay that examines literary and philosophical reasons why no one really wants to live forever. But, we must wonder if our scientists, creating artificial organs, nano-implants, and other high-tech life prolonging marvels, consider the negative consequences of staying in the same body eternally. Of course, Bodhisattvas who strive to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient being understand that to achieve their goal they must continue to return to this physical exisence, over and over and over again.They experience a kind of serial immortality.
