the current lifespan of humans is kind of short and it would be nice to be able to live a bit longer but i wouldn't want to live forever either. i think nobody would be able to deal with an infinite life without going crazy. everything would lose its meaning. it would be hell.

I would not want to live forever, since I believe in heaven. I am one of those to live to the end of the world. Immortality, I would think, would eventually drive me insane. I can't possible imagine what I would become after so long, for good or for evil, even after 500 mio, let alone eternity.
It really depends on if everyone else also lives that long, or only me.

There is no doubt that I would be completly different.

In heaven one would be perfectly happy, and therefore insanity would not exist.

I'd like to have the possibility do live forever, but only if I could end my life whenever I want to. Without that I'd probably go insane, an endless life (doesn't matter where, here or in any paradise that some people believe in) without possibility to end it yourself would be the same as hell; the most terrible thing ever. Living in a paradise would even be worse, because being "happy" all the time (to have / know everything etc.) is a guarantee to be unhappy in the end and / or in the long run. Being happy isn't more then some chemicals in your brain, and they need certain highlights to be "activated". A status that doesn't change makes you always unhappy, no matter if the status is "good" or "bad". So there isn't much difference between hell and heaven, they both would be horrible

Why would one not want to live forever? Isn't this the main reason why so much people believe in heaven? The wish to become immortal?
I've voted 'forever' too btw I just like to know what comes after what, even if it would mean I would be alone for a couple of million/billion years, before the next planet becomes inhabitable for interesting creatures, when for example the human race has become extinct long before.

Living forever would mean you could do anything you wish, as far as you are physically capable to do what you wish. Now that sounds really tempting to me, especially when you think off the technological improvements that are just waiting to happen, most of them are a question of time, at least so I like to think...

Cheers
