    I was lead to believe that immortality would involve an inordinate amount of sword fights as well as increasingly illogical sequels.

    I DREW THIS! I totally drew the immortality video illustrations (I didn’t animate them, that was someone else). I can’t believe I just stumbled across my own work on the Mary Sue. I’ve arrived :)

    We remember things from our youth, and an 80 year old remembers more stuff about when they were 50 years old than a 40 year old remembers about being 10 years old. Then also, we’ll have plenty of add ons like bionic limbs, dentures that are better than regular teeth, etc. It also seems very likely that we’ll have the option to do things like spur this or that hormone or protein or whatever it may be to regrow strong teeth for as long as we want. This video is a limited and linear, fear of the unknown perspective. If you dig into these concepts and think about them more then youll see that theres nothing to be any more afraid of than day to day living already is. There are only brightly lit horizons and we are on our way. Now focus, start helping out with this stuff and lets obtain indefinite life extension for ourselves so we can experience more of the big picture of this incredible existence and the ever unfolding wonders of an increasingly more scientific and technological world.
