I don’t judge anyone for believing in God or the afterlife. I judge people for acting as if they know these things are true. Anyone who accepts death on the basis of there being a supposed afterlife is not being very wise. A wise person doubts all things and considers every possibility. The possibility that life ends at death should frighten everyone and lead them to one conclusion. If one wants eternal life, then one must NEVER DIE. #No afterlife via Eternal Life Fan Club http://ift.tt/1vveDYR
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to miss out on eternal life.
Rather than to seize the day, I want to focus on seizing eternity.
What’s important to me? My existence and the existence of other human beings.
What do I care about? I care about myself. I care about having fun… and being creative… FOREVER. I care about PEOPLE and all the amazing relationships I could have if I got to live forever, and all the fun things we could do.
What matters? LIFE matters. DEATH matters. CURING ALL DISEASE and ending all other causes of death matters. The fact that innocent people are losing their only existence… MATTERS. Brittany, your life matters!
So what am I going to pursue? Eternal life, with all my strength I will strive for it. I am going to be as healthy as I possibly can and never stop learning about how I can improve my health and safety, while I continue to explore new possibilities and strategies to avoid death.
Brittany Maynard… I feel very sorry for you. You are a victim of nature. Nature is cruel and heartless. You are exactly the reason I can’t believe in God. What kind of God would allow someone to suffer so greatly, that they would consider ending their own life? Brittany, I don’t know your religious beliefs, but in all probability you believe in some kind of afterlife. Assuming I am correct, I just hope that your belief in the afterlife is not clouding your thinking on the topic of death. I hope you are considering the possibility that there is No afterlife and what that means… Eternal oblivion…
I will give you the same advice I give everyone. DON’T DIE. You must NEVER lose your will to survive. You must do WHATEVER IT TAKES to survive! If I was you, I would RAGE against the dying of the light. I would probably be researching cancer treatments at this very moment. I would certainly be on a Ketogenic diet. Secondly, I would consider signing up for Cryonics. It’s not guaranteed to work by any stretch of the imagination but it’s better than being buried or cremated. (It’s great to be hopeful that cryonics will work, but seriously do not have a confident expectation that it’s going to work. Cryonics is only a last resort — a backup plan in case all else should fail. But I must stress that having a cryonics membership should not make you feel safe.)
Personally, I think suffering is not the worst that can happen to a person. DEATH IS.

You men and women in the labs have our deepest gratitude. You are working very hard at the second most important thing in life… That is, saving other people’s lives… The first most important thing is saving your own life, because without your own life you can’t help anyone.
So a word to the scientists… Please look after your health. Take care of yourself. Avoid dangers. DON’T DIE. We need you. ♥
I think the best way we can show our appreciation for these anti-aging scientists is to Protest to END AGING and gain more funding for their research. SENS Research Foundation distributes it’s funds to a plethora of scientists who need it. Your donations are appreciated and by giving, we are acting as effective altruists by helping them save more lives. If the cure for aging comes 1 day sooner, that’s 100,000 more lives we’ve helped to save!
I kinda understand where the religious people are coming from (I was once a believer myself — now an atheist)… At least religious people DESIRE an eternal life, although I strongly disagree with their strategy to attain it. What I do not understand is the atheist who says that eternal life would be some kind of curse (a common attitude amongst atheists). Essentially, they have NO PROBLEM with non-existence–they even prefer it. So they are much more daft than the religious people who are counting on heaven. I seriously wonder if these death-loving atheists have a case of the sour grapes, because they think eternal life is out of reach? That seems a likely explanation.
One thing is for sure. People hate to be afraid. If the Christian and the Muslim admitted that their afterlife is just wishful thinking, they’d have to be afraid of death. If the atheist admitted that non-existence was a bad thing, then they’d have to be afraid of death. The common denominator is that people HATE FEAR. People would rather delude themselves so they can be at peace with death. Personally, I think we should not be at peace. If I was at peace with death, I would not have been motivated to start this fan club. We should return to our childlike fears… Our fears tell us something very important — that death is EVIL and UNFAIR, and we must STRIVE for eternal life, against all odds.
And ounce your gone,
you can’t come back…
When you’re out of the blue,
and into the black…

How would you answer this question:
“What do you hate most about death?”
I’ll go first. What I hate most about death is that death might permanently destroy my consciousness (there is a VERY BIG possibility that this is the case)… This is a BIG PROBLEM for me because I need to have a consciousness in order to do the things I love doing. There’s SO MUCH THINGS that I enjoy and I HATE the idea that I might never be able to do those things… ever again.
Our society needs to talk about death–REALLY talk about it honestly and admit how horrible it is. Here’s what I think is going on. The idea of death is so traumatic and mentally abusive that it literally causes people to bond with death and deny their victimization. Society vehemently defends death like a battered woman attempts to make excuses for her abusive partner. People are suffering from Stockholm syndrome. We’re all slaves. We have never been free. But the good news is that Indefinite life extension IS POSSIBLE! SENS Research Foundation is making a difference!

I believe eternal life is possible because I don’t know what the future holds. Anyone who says that death is inevitable is claiming to know the future. Since when can human beings know the future? Living forever IS hypothetically possible if we cure aging and create a hyper-safe, techno-utopian society that solves all existential threats.

This is why I stress over and over again that it’s so important to really love yourself. Love who you are! In order to love yourself you must follow your conscience and always do what you think is right. You must follow your life’s passion. If you don’t obey your conscience and if you neglect your passion, then you will be riddled with guilt and end up hating yourself. I think people who love themselves are the kind of people who want to live forever. At the end of the day you want to be able to look in the mirror and say, “Gosh darn it, I DESERVE to live forever. The world NEEDS a person like me.”
I know that life can feel like a nightmare sometimes. A lot of people are really struggling to stay happy. Those people will have even more to appreciate when the singularity comes. It will be like taking a hot bath when you were freezing for so long, or finally getting to eat something when you were starving. Suffering makes pleasure even better. =)
If you think your life sucks, OK, I won’t argue. But you should be patient and hold out for something better. It’s going to get a lot better as more advanced technology is created and as the world leaves the dark ages. via Eternal Life Fan Club https://www.facebook.com/EternalLifeFan/photos/a.212034158927695.50195.211915068939604/549403505190757/?type=1
Dr. House understands. The notion of something being “worse than death” is absurd. The only thing that might be worse than death is eternal torment, but that’s a completely made-up hypothetical scenario. In life, suffering is temporary. If someone is being tormented and they start to desire death as a release, I would advise to withstand the pain. Never surrender.
Here’s some perspective for you. When you feel sorry for yourself, just remember that you are still alive and all the famous/rich/successful/talented people of the past are dead. They lost everything (how incredibly tragic). If you are still alive you are winning.
Just by being alive in the year 2014, you have it way better than the countless people who have entered into oblivion (assuming there is no afterlife). They got nothing but a small blip of existence. You could have eternity if you make the right moves and take your eternal life seriously. STAY ALIVE. via Eternal Life Fan Club http://ift.tt/1svJORC
