time by time we would forget who we are.
Each cell would undergo a process of continuous renewal thus having a need to copy and reproduce information.
Over a period of tens of thousand or million or billion years something will get lost or changed.
Yes, we would forget who we are...
Take a full glass of water and put paper clips in it. The water area is vaulting - more and more.
And then - you need only one more clip, and the water runs down the glass. One tiny clip changes it all.
This is the idea behind evolution taking place in all life forms...
Being Immortal would simple be the unlimited duration of constant changes.Perhaps our personal life goals like Spirituality,or mastery over skill or Knowledge, might keep some kind of tangent or coherency in such a life.But i think the process of experiences would gradually modulate a individuals personality to indifference and non-attachment.Would passion be the casualty in such an Immortal individuality?When would the magic of the new and unfamiliar cease to move a person?How long could an Immortal endure a transitory world when he or she would continue to persist,Seemingly For Forever?
The Tibetan Buddhists believed that a mortal attaining Immortality could only stand to live for about two hundred and fifty years before most would seek nirvana to finally know some kind of rest or peace.That sounds reasonable to me,others might not agree...
Perhaps for some it would be a curse.For others a Gift.Still i would love to know the insights of such a point of view.
Thank you Tertiusgaudens.
"The Gods envy us, humans, for our mortality."
It is the 'chance of dieing' that makes the mortal life so interesting.
Maybe that's the reason why our soul chooses this temporary form, so it can experience 'existence' more strongly...
