If there were a real Fountain of Youth, would you drink the water?
Yes ofcourse. Oh man who wouldn’t want to do that. But I’d want to drink it a few years ago. Atleast at age 29 because I think that is a good age. 27-29 would do me good. That feels like a good age to remain at forever.
But….I wouldn’t want to live in this age forever young. Can I not get a Star Trek style futuristic universe where we have a lot of things I want and be able to spends decades and decades of our lives exploring the alien worlds and interacting with all the aliens and beings on the numerous planets in our galaxy and beyond? I want that kind of a life and a universe for me and for everyone.
Some find dignity in growing old and dying but that’s because that’s all you know. If you had a choice, wouldn’t you want to live forever without aging? I certainly would but under these terms.
