In a recent survey, 63.43% of IEET readers claimed that they wanted to live for eternity.
An additional 7.87% wanted to survive a mere 1,000 years, with 7.41% choosing demise at 500 years and 3.7% electing to end-it-all at 200 years.
How many IEET readers want to live only a “normal” lifespan, of 80-100 years? That category, perhaps surprisingly, placed second overall with 17.59%.
If I cant be shore what would I be thinking in 2 years or less time, imagine in 100. At the moment I am looking forward for the evolution of the human race, and depending of my future objectives, hormone manipulation, DNA enginering, inteligence upgrade, etc… I think would be beiond our comprehention if we wanna to live indefinitely or not, as we dont know nothink about what is gonna be like it or how.

I like the anime-ish icon you picked for the thumbnail on the front page!!!!!! Can you post that somewhere and link me to it?
I was amazed at last year’s TEDx Brussels when a hand count revealed that only quite a small minority wanted to live forever, and as far as I recall 70 was even more popular than 150. Apparently the death cult is alive and well.
