When I was young I thought that I would die young.
I even hoped that I would die young.
Now, I do not want to die, ... ever.
I want to live because I feel the reality of death.
I would like to live indefinitely, choosing the time of my death if it must come.
I would like to perfect who I am and what I do until I grew weary of my existence.
Better a living brain in a jar than death!
I prefer my dreams to nothingness.
I want to become a machine.
I hope that technology will be able to augment my existence so that I might live longer than the meager “life expectancy” of eighty years. Eighty years is nothing!
At 80 years, I have just woken up!
Immortal machines are coming. We will be those machines.
It will be the next evolutionary step for humankind, and the first step for a new form of life.
